Still playing catch-up on the blog! The situation in Colorado with Dual Peppy has produced tremendous interest. The situation is interesting to say the least and it appears intervention is long overdue. However, there are steps which must be taken in each case, and Alyson Decanio does a fantastic job relating what transpires when a seizure for abuse or neglect takes place. Rather than opine on this situation, I’m just going to post a guide to determining body condition score in horses, and raise the question, if being 2 body condition scores under the optimal range is considered abusive, should 2 body condition over the optimal range be considered abusive as well? And if not, what does this say about having hope for resolving the obesity epidemic which plagues our country’s health this day and age? Thanks for stopping by!
