The transition from winter-feeding to pasture involves a considerable diet change that might compromise the health of horses. Diseases like colic as well as insulin dysregulation and pasture associated laminitis are related to diet changes and pasture intake. However, little information exist on the metabolic responses in horses on pasture. The aim of this project is to investigate how the transition from winter-feeding to spring pasture affects blood glucose-insulin concentrations and the microbial environment in the hindgut of the horse. This project will contribute with important knowledge regarding feeding horses in the diet transition period, results that will be used in the prevention and management of diseases like colic, insulin dysregulation and laminitis.

Overgangen fra vinterfôring til beite innebærer en betydelig diettendring som kan skade hestens helse. Sykdommer som kolikk samt insulin-dysregulering og beiteassosiert laminitt er relatert til diettendringer og beiteinntak. Det finnes imidlertid lite informasjon om de metabolske responsene fra hester på beite. Målet med dette prosjektet er å undersøke hvordan overgangen fra vinterfôring til vårbeite påvirker konsentrasjonen av blodsukker og -insulin samt det mikrobielle miljøet i hestens baktarm. Dette prosjektet vil bidra med viktig kunnskap om overgangsfôring av hester, resultater som vil bli brukt i forebygging og behandling av sykdommer som kolikk, insulin-dysregulering og laminitt.

Selektiv avmaskning mot blodmask – risker och möjligheter
Eva Tydén, Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet

Projektnummer: H-15-47-097 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2015

Development of resistance to anthelmintics is a threat to equine welfare. As with antibiotics, restrictive use with anthelmintics in order to retain the effect is essential. Current recommendation for deworming is targeted selective treatment to individuals shedding a certain amount of parasite …

Hösilage"intolerans" hos häst?
Cecilia Müller, Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet

Projektnummer: H-15-47-063 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2015

The purpose is to examine haylage 'intolerance' in horses, which is expressed as diarrhoeic faeces in some horses when they are fed haylage (sometimes also when fed hay). A typical appearance is two-phase faeces - one solid and one liquid. It is not known why or how this condition appears, and it …

Från unghäst till atlet -förändringar över tid av rörelsesymmetrin hos trav- och ridhästar.
Marie Rhodin, Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet

Projektnummer: H-16-47-178 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2016

Many horses in training show motion asymmetries, but it is not known if these are due to pain caused by training; or due to individual biological variations. The aim of this project is to initiate three cohort studies where changes in motion symmetry will be monitored over time in riding horses and …

Hälta eller lateralitet: när är en rörelseasymmetri betydelsefull?
Marie Rhodin, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Projektnummer: H-17-47-286 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2017

Motor laterality, such as left or right-handedness, is a well-known asymmetric phenomenon in both humans and animals, incl. horses. Concurrently, lameness caused by orthopaedic injury is a common cause for asymmetry. In our study of riding horses in training, 73 % had motion asymmetries, warranting …
