Hey everyone. =]
I know I'm a fresh member, but I joined in hopes of getting help with my junior paper in high school. I picked a horse subject of course, but now I'm having a hard time finding information. I have just a few questions.
Does anyone know a site where I can find the health risks of pasture feeding? By this I mean when a horse is stuck out in a pasture with no grains, vitamins, anything. Just grass.
Another question, what is it called when a horse is sensitive to the change in grass when the season changes? I've heard it before, but not in depth. It was something about the grass changes with the season, and it makes the horse sort of sick.
My paper is on alternatives to horse slaughter and abandonment. It covers why horses are abandoned (uneducated owners on health, price, and needs of a horse), how rescue groups are trying to help, how horses can be given a second chance (lesson horse, police horse, pasture companion, therapy horse, etc.)
I need other topics to add. I can't think of what else to write about. I also need someone to interview, I'd prefer someone in NC. I was hoping to find someone who works with rescued horses or owns a rescued horse.
Any opinions or information is greatly appreciated.
