The American Horse Council has released a new brochure on caring for neglected horses.
The brochure, entitled “Caregiver’s Guide to Rehabilitating the Neglected Horse," shows owners who have acquired a neglected horse how to safely bring the animal back to health. The brochure focuses on proper feeding, vaccination, deworming practices, and hoof care.
“The American Horse Council is thankful that, in working with our members and sponsors, we are able to provide resources to help horse owners and potential horse owners to rehabilitate neglected horses,” said AHC president Jay Hickey.
The Caregiver’s Guide was introduced at the recent American Association of Equine Practitioners onvention. The printed copy, which contains coupons from Nutrena, Intervet, and the AHC, can be obtained by contacting Ericka Caslin of the Unwanted Horse Coalition at firstname.lastname@example.org. An electronic copy of the brochure is available for download on the Resources page of the Unwanted Horse Coalition Web site.
