DID YOU KNOW...

-for every 1 centimeter of extra toe length- this results in an extra 50 kilograms of force acting on the tendons

-1 degree drop in sole angle where the DDFT inserts into the coffin bone (affected by Palmar Angle) can lead to a 4% increase in the pressure exerted by the DDFT on the Navicular bone

These simple facts highlight how important it is to keep your horses on tight shoeing schedule and receive correct trimming/shoeing to give them a long and successful career.

What are your thoughts? How do you feed your horses hay?

Haynet height and its effect on horse posture
Research carried out by an Italian team (Raspa et al) published in March 2021(see reference and photos below) set out to study the effects of haynets at two different heights on the angles of the back, neck and jaw of horses.
Six healthy warmblood horses around 14 years were critically observed eating from three different feeding positions:
1 On the ground (the control position)
2 With their neck held about 15 degrees below withers height (the low hay net position at about knee level)
3 With their neck held about 15 degrees above withers height (the high hay net position).
The researchers looked specifically at the shape variations of the horses back and neck as they ate at each level using a geometric morphometrics technique.
They found that the low haynet position resulted in back positions that were almost the same as the natural position when horses ate off the ground, with elongated longissimus dorsi muscles (which run along each side of the horse’s back and under where the saddle sits). At the higher haynet position, the horses’ back positions changed significantly, shortening the muscles.
The angle made between the horse’s jawline and neckline when eating was found to be equally important. As the horse’s neck raised, the angle closed more, leading to acute and highly unnatural eating angles at the highest level.
The researchers conclude that it’s important to be aware of the unnatural body positions created by using haynets but also pointed out the implications of height positioning from a horse safety perspective. The research team has not yet studied how unnatural feeding positions affect horse health but suspect a natural feeding position is better both for the musculoskeletal system and the digestive system.
