Equine Nutrition/Growth Reference
from C.H.I.P.S.

The Growing Horse
Nutrition and Prevention of Growth Disorders
edited by V. Juliand and
W. Martin-Rosset

The Growing Horse provides an outstanding synthesis of the biology and the physiopathology of growth and of the nutritional requirements necessary for feeding the healthy growing horse.

The basic knowledge is presented in main reports dealing with experimental and field studies on the following categories:

  • growth and development
  • energy and protein requirements
  • minerals and vitamins requirements
  • the role of nutrition on developmental diseases

Sections end with applications for end users. This book is of interest to all those working with horses including trainers, breeders veterinarians and horse owners.

Contents

Part A - Growth and development

The fundamentals

  • Growth and development in the equine
  • Physiology of growth and development

Growth curves and effects of some factors

  • Thoroughbred growth characterized by a baseline and systematic deviation
  • The effect of age of dam on birth weight and growth rate of Thoroughbred foals
  • Growth patterns in Thoroughbred horses during the second year of life
  • Percentiles: a simple tool to monitor the growth of Thoroughbreds
  • Predicting growth rates and mature sizes in Morgan horses
  • First results from a morphological approach to draught foal and filly growth in the Ardennes: 1. Evolution as a function of age
  • First results from a morphological approach to draught foal and filly growth in the Ardennes: 2. Calculating growth curbs
  • Effect of nutrition on the growth curve of weanling foals
  • The influence of mineral supplementation on the growth of Lusitano foals
  • Growth rates in Hanoverian Warmblood foals and the development of osteochondrosis

Part B - Energy and protein requirements

The fundamentals

  • Energy and protein metabolism of normal growth
  • Evaluation of energy and protein requirements and recommended allowances in growing horses

The applications

  • Rations for intensive growth in young horses
  • Feeding the young horse managed with moderate growth

Synthesis and prospects

  • Energy and protein requirements for growth: A european perspective

Part C - Minerals and vitamins requirements

  • Evaluation of mineral and vitamin requirements for growing horses

The applications

  • Common feeding practices and supply of minerals and vitamins
  • Influence of management and nutrition on growth in the young horse

Experimental and field studies

  • Studies on the metabolic situation of mares and their foals during an early period after birth
  • Feeding practice in Hanoverian Warmblood mares and foals with regard to the incidence of osteochondrose

Part D - Role of nutrition on developmental diseases

The fundamentals

  • Developmental diseases affecting growing horses
  • The potential impact of nutrition on bone growth in horses
  • Effect of exercise and diet on the incidence of DOD

The applications

  • Feeding practices and prevention of developmental diseases

Experimental and field studies

  • Body composition in transition mares and suckling foals
  • Developmental diseases of 230 foals in Basse-Normandie
  • Changes in bone markers and intact parathyroid hormone with regard to the incidence of osteochondrosis in growing Hanoverian Warmblood foals
  • Comparing bone metabolic parameters for Ardennes foals and draught horses
  • The influence of mineral supplementation on skeleton formation in Lusitano foals
  • Clinical use of naloxone/calcium association in the meconium impaction and prevention of stress-related disorders of weaning in foals
