Ionia County Horse Leaders
We have a small but mighty group! These kids are the true demonstration of sportsmanship - always cheering each other on, practicing together, and giving pointers. Ionia county has a Hippology team that is always in the top placings for the state. Our kids strive to be a better horseman and learn, not just win. Our fairgrounds are on the river and we battle floods several times a year, often affecting our shows, camp and fair. It is up to the kids and leaders to raise all awareness money, and winning this contest would allow us to offer some really amazing prizes this year!
So this happened yesterday! This is what life is about- helping to make a little girls dreams come true! Congrats to Ava and her family on their purchase of Maddie! I cannot wait to help you both grow together

THE "FAT LEG" DISEASE
Raise your hand if this has ever happened to you: you walk into the field or stall to catch your horse, and there he stands, in a lot of pain, with one leg swollen from the stifle down to twice its normal size (the famous "stovepipe" leg).
What is unscientifically called a “fat leg” is usually an inflammation: of subcutaneous connective tissue (in that case it's called cellulitis); of the lymphatic system (called lymphangitis, a severe form of cellulitis); or of blood vessels (called vasculitis).
A "fat leg" with no obvious trauma can be very frustrating for both horse owner and veterinarian due to its confusing nature. It can sideline a horse for days, weeks, or even months; and severe or untreated cases can become chronic, which can in turn result in fibrosis and hardened spots on the legs. Please note that lymphangitis/cellulitis is a dramatically different condition than your everyday "stocking up" (fluid swelling), which normally resolves with exercise.
While causes may vary, once a horse has cellulitis, it’s easy to spot. If you think your equine friend has cellulitis or even if you're not sure, we encourage you to seek professional help promptly. Your horse doctor will make the best treatment recommendations, both to reduce swelling and to address any sort of bacterial infection that might be active or that could occur due to the edema in the soft tissue.

TIP FOR THE DAY - did you know it is important not to work horses an empty stomach? If horses have an empty stomach during work, all the acids produced in the stomach are free to splash up onto the non-glandular region of the stomach and cause ulcers. So next time you go to saddle up your horse... let them eat some hay (or fibre rich feed if hay not recommended) while you brush and tack up etc to help keep them comfortable 🙂
