I found it very interesting - and especially the section on "Overfeeding" which has symptoms like "losing interest in covering mares" and higher risk of colic and laminitis, and dying from covering mares.

So many of the stallions I have seen recently in Lexington were obese.

One of the many articles that Shammy posted was on the effects of over feeding young horses. Turns out that the fat and glossy sales yearlings may be damaged by the very process of turning them fat and glossy.

On a similar note, has anyone tracked the longevity of stallions by farm? Do stallions that are exercised under saddle last longer than ones that just stand around eating and breeding?

I did an analysis a few years back on longevity for shuttle stallions vs non shuttle stallions and the non shuttle stallions were clear winners..

But what about farms that exercise the stallions under saddle?

Or maybe which farms exercise their stallion, and those that just let them stand around. It looked like Flower Alley gets to the track every morning. And he looked pretty nice.

so many people feed their horses wrong it is un real.. They just feed what/however they were taught with no reason or they buy whatever the neighbor found on sale.
