New Foal Kit for High-Risk Farms

Jan 3, 2014 10:06:01 AM

As the industry flourishes, owners of large breeding farms for performance horses want more than ever to ensure that each baby grows into a high-dollar athlete. A newborn foal’s biggest adversary is infection from the likes of Salmonella bacteria and other pathogens. But now, veterinarians and Universities are using new techniques and technologies developed to prevent life-threatening problems in newborns such as diarrhea.

Equitarian Initiative in Peru

Aug 11, 2013 11:38:32 AM

Full Bucket BlogTravelers met from all over in Houston and Lima to begin our trip to Peru. As somewhat expected, customs in Lima took a long time to pass through. Maria Teresa, our coordinator from the non-profit VidaDigna, helps us with permits, and we generally have a good working relationship with the customs officials at SENASA because of the trip’s long-time in-country presence.

It took us at least 5 hours to have all of our boxes inspected, which had been shipped to various trip participants prior to the trip to check as extra baggage. Everything cleared, but it seemed to have warranted double- and triple-inspection and communication with a superior over the phone.

I Don't Know What I Don't Know

Jul 28, 2013 11:37:18 AM

Full Bucket BlogThe other day Dr. Rob and I were discussing plans for our next equitarian trip for FullBucket – probably in October. One topic led to another and we started to discuss something that both of us had wondered to ourselves a few times over the last couple of years.

You see our business exists to help those who cannot help themselves. We sell horse supplements here in the US and use those proceeds to supply nutritional supplmenetation </a>and send our team on Equtarian Initiative trips.  These are workshops performed in impoverished areas of poor countries like Mexico and Guatemala. When you’re on the ground in these areas, you are so busy trying to be useful and make a difference with your time that you don’t take notice of the larger picture or question certain aspects.

Microflora Warriors with Armor

Jul 23, 2013 11:36:02 AM

Micro-Encapsulation is Armor For Probiotics. Let’s pretend you’re a tiny warrior that’s been sent into the mouth of a horse (full of acids &amp; bacteria) and expected to reach the Hind Gut (80+ feet away).On the route you have to navigate the acids of the stomach (4 gallons) and a 70-foot minefield called the Small Intestine.  And that’s not to mention the snipers and kamikaze enemies we call moisture and temperature.

Once you reach the destination, you have to fight trillions of bad guys who have unlawfully taken over. You do this to give the good citizens (MicroFlora) their rightful territory back. Actually this might make a good video game…

GI Health in Older Horses

Jul 22, 2013 11:34:52 AM

Frankie was my first horse. Frankie was a jet-black pony that looked more like a miniature racehorse than a pony. He was cool. He was patient, caring and calm – most of the time. Eventually, I outgrew Frankie and he was passed on to my younger brother who also learned the basic skills of riding on the back of that trusted friend.

Time passed and Frankie grew old. He had paid more than his dues and earned a place on our ranch for retirement. For a few years Frankie kept his great body condition and would slick off in the springtime. Later, not so much. His hair wouldn’t shed as quickly, if at all, and he began to loose weight.

The Currency of Appreciation

Jun 18, 2013 11:31:14 AM

Not far up the road in Fort Worth is a good, old-fashioned restaurant that serves up giant plates of home cooking. I have eaten there for years and have my favorite breakfast and lunch specials. And the pie, "Oh my the pie!" The waitresses are, as you would expect of such a place, grandmotherly in stature and semi-polite with a slight bitter edge. A bustling crowd twice a day keeps the bus boys at full speed.

One man in particular has been cleaning tables there as long as I can remember. With a permanent smile on his face he scans the room with eagle eyes, constantly making sure everyone has the proper amount of silverware and napkins. When a table empties he swoops in directly behind them and with a flourish of hands and cleaning cloths he makes quite a spectacle of what is usually a boring process. With lightning speed he slides, slides and pumps the nasty mess into his plastic tub. A flip of the towels in large figure eights he slaps and swipes. Spinning plates fall perfectly into place and he twirls each fork, spoon and knife with fingertips before tapping them into position for his finale'. Badda-bing! He’s a showman.
