    Keeping Water Tanks Clean and How Goldfish May Help!

    Keeping Water Tanks Clean and How Goldfish May Help!

    Research Reference:

    Catalano, Devan N et al., 2019. The Effect of Goldfish (Carassius auratus) on Water Quality in Horse Stock Tanks. Journal of equine veterinary science, 79, pp.73–78.

    Key "takeaways" :

    Keep tanks clean. Water odor, temperature, turbidity and color will determine intake.

    Horses should drink  1 gallon of water per 100lbs or for a 1,000 lbs horse = 10 gallons per day. Preferably 10 to 15 gallons/day. A horse eating fresh grass (pasture) will require less water while a horse eating hay usually requires more water.

    A mentally and physically thriving horse is usually given required amounts of forage, water, movement (turnout) and social interaction with conspecifics.

    High starch diets and their effect on behavior.

    High starch diets and their effect on behavior.

    Research Reference:

    Bulmer, Louise S et al., 2019. High-starch diets alter equine faecal microbiota and increase behavioural reactivity. Scientific reports, 9(1), pp.18621–11.

    The equine digestive tract is better suited to a high fiber-fat low starch diet. This type of diet results in healthier microbial populations within the intestines and results in a more settled pattern of behavior. Horses are designed to eat small amounts more frequently mimicking grazing/trickle feeding behavior.
