Grateful for the Journey

March 31, 2014 12:39:19 PM CDT

Grateful for the Journey Article by Jenny Pavlovic Chase and I are planning a party.We’re celebrating one year of the Dog Gone Reading Program at the Valley Library, where the kids read to Chase to improve their reading skills. Ginny the librarian, the kids, and their families will join us on a Saturday to celebrate, hear Chase’s story, present participation awards to the kids, and share some treats. Chase led me into this work, and he and I have felt such joy from seeing the kids improve their reading skills. We love to hear the kids read, and have enjoyed helping them learn more about dogs. Chase doesn’t have a kid at home, so he gets to spend time with kids. It’s a win-win.

Occasionally, an egg will get stuck in a hen’s oviduct and she will become egg bound. Signs of an egg bound hen include sitting on the ground or dragging wings, fluffing up, lethargy and closed eyes.Read More

Water Losses in Horses

March 4, 2014 1:35:15 PM CST

Water Losses in Horses by Dr. Kris Hiney This month we will discuss the most important nutrient in your horse’s diet, but maybe the most overlooked. Because providing our horse with water may seem obvious, many believe water requirements may not warrant discussion. But how much do you really know about how much your horse should be drinking per day?Read More

Newton, Wisconsin – Omega Fields’ Equine Nutrition Advisor, Kristina Hiney, Ph.D., has introduced a new article about key strategies in preventing laminitis in the equine. The article has been published in one of our Health E Letter issues, Omega Fields’ monthly, digital newsletter, and is also posted on their website, www.OmegaFields.com.

In the article, Dr. Hiney draws on her extensive personal knowledge, experience with equine nutrition and physiology, and scientific studies to try to identify which individuals may be at risk, and other strategies that may be employed to reduce your horse’s risk.

Dr. Hiney states, “While the outward appearance of your horse may give you an indication to whether they are susceptible to laminitis, there may be more to it than just which horses are overweight. There certainly appears to be a genetic link to laminitis.”

If owners wish to try and avoid the development of insulin resistance, the diet the horse receives may be critical. There is evidence that diets which avoid high amounts of sugars and starches, and have a low glycemic response, resulting in less insulin release. For horses which still need a significant amount of calories, diets which are fat and fiber based and properly formulated, rather than those which provide a higher glucose or insulinemic response, may prevent the development of insulin resistance. Certainly just monitoring body condition in the horse may be the easiest way to avoid insulin resistance. Although, if you ask any horse owner if that is easy you may get a different response! In addition, horses which receive regular exercise seem to be fairly protected against laminitis. However, it is difficult to know whether the exercise regimen aids in increasing insulin sensitivity, or is simply protective against obesity.

To read the complete laminitis article by Dr. Hiney that discusses the genetic role, obesity and insulin resistance, diet and lifestyle management, please visit our horse articles section on our website. <http://www.omegafields.com/blog/cat/articles-equine-articles/post/keys-to-preventing-laminitis/>

Dr. Hiney has been working with Omega Fields since 2008 to expand our connection with our customers, giving them the nutrition and health information from scientific perspective they would like to know. Each month, Kris presents a feature article concerning horse health in Dr. Kris's Korner, her column in the Health-E-Letter.

Newton, Wisconsin – Omega Fields, Inc. is proud to announce our support for the second year of the ILQHA Charity hosted by the ILQHA Recreational Riding Program.  To be held September 26- 29, 2013 in the Shawnee National Forest, at the New Hope Hill Campground.  Click here for more details; http://ilqha.com/recreational_riding.html

“The Illinois Quarter Horse Association Recreational Riding Program has been hosting the trail ride for 7 years in a row now. This trail ride is not only for the enjoyment of the riders, but it also works to inform people and keep trails open and available for use by all horse lovers throughout the state of Illinois. Each year the committee also partners up with a local charity and gives at least 50% of the ride's proceeds to the charity. This year's charity is the Massac County Youth fair, which covers 13 counties in Southern Illinois.  Businesses like Omega Fields help us to raise money for these charities by donating items that can be auctioned off, raffled off, or bid on through silent auction. Without generous businesses like Omega Fields, our organization would not be able to support the local charities that we have for the past 7 years. The committee truly appreciates the donation of products from Omega Fields; they are great products, and the committee members often get into bidding wars over them!” stated Haley and Heidi A. Coop, 2013 ILQHA Trail Ride Directors.

Omega Fields’ president, Sean Moriarty, stated “we are very glad to be a small part of the successful fund raising efforts of the ILQHA and are proud to be associated with such a great group doing even greater things to promote better horsemanship and the equine lifestyle”.

Newton, Wisconsin – Omega Fields, Inc. is proud to announce our continued relationship with the amazing Beverly Gray and her champion horse “Jolly Sickle”.  (www.bevgrayusa.com).  Omega Fields’ goal has always been to extend our tag line “Nutrition for a Healthy Life” into a person’s entire experience by promoting a connected message of nutrition and healthy living for them and the animals they love.  We feel strongly that Bev’s reputation, methods and character are a great fit with ours and we are thrilled to have her as our Spokesperson. ” says Moriarty, President of Omega Fields.  

Beverly and “Jolly Sickle” had another fantastic “Gold Medal” year winning National Mountain Region Champion and National 100 Mile Champion!  According to Beverly, “It was another pinnacle endurance riding year that included 750 miles, 14 races with 9 firsts and 11 Best Condition awards throughout 3 regions. I’ve never had a horse partner in the National Standings for Best Condition in my entire 18,500+ miles of competition.  I didn’t see the possibility of a National BC until this past fall.  The drama of 3 consecutive high vet scores and 3 consecutive Best Condition awards at the Moab Canyonlands Ride was the climax of our campaign.  Jolly Sickle and I have shared so much together – a once in a lifetime sunrise, the noon sun streaking through a thick forest heavy with fog, or alone with the sound of the musical tempo of hooves over the crimson Moab slickrock.  Riding Jolly Sickle is poetry in motion! I am grateful and humbled to be his partner and friend.” Beverly also stated “I believe Omega Fields nutritional program for my champion Arabian and I were major factors in our success! Thank you Omega Fields.”
