Body condition scoring
Published 05-09-2011 10:42 AM | Fernanda Camargo
On April 1st, 2011, a group of extension agents, horse leaders and youth, gathered at the Kentucky Equine Humane Center to learn how to assess the body condition of their horses and how to make changes to appropriately increase or reduce their horse's body condition.
The people at the KyEHC are always very willing to help us when we need a place to teach our 4H volunteers and extension agents.
This brings me to the next subject, which is the Bluegrass Equine Digest. This is a monthly publication from the University of Kentucky Equine Initiative, featuring the latest research and events in the equine field.
