Easy Keeper: Making it Easy to Keep Him Healthy by Dr. Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.
Equine obesity is a difficult yet highly common issue all over the world. This issue looks at the causes, prevention, and solutions to this problem. Research of equine obesity started with studies on human obesity, looking at elements like hormonal responses and the effect of exercise. Then the research moved to horses, and lo and behold, found that the drivers of weight issues for people are, for the most part, the same as for horses. The Easy Keeper offers four keys to successful equine weight management that not only work, but bring benefits far beyond reducing the horse's girth.
- Insulin and leptin resistance
- Body fat and inflammation
- Pasture grazing
