The final installment of SmartPak’s educational ‘Barn Field Trip’ series is here: watch the Q&A with SP staff veterinarian Dr. Lydia Gray about easy and hard keepers!
SmartPak is always looking out for us: they’re not just a great supplement producer and our favorite online tack shop, but the company is also devoted to educating us as horse owners and caretakers, as well as its staff. Every few months, both new and current employees from every one of SmartPak’s departments heads to the barn to learn about hay, grain and other feeds from SmartPak veterinarian Dr. Lydia Gray, and SmartPak is kindly sharing videos from these sessions in a six-part series.
If you missed the first few installments, you can catch up here: Parts One and Two (discussing feed and decoding feed labels), Part Three (body condition scoring), Part Four (measuring a horse’s weight) and Part Five (measuring a horse’s height). In Part Six, the final installment, Dr. Gray answers staff questions about managing easy and hard keepers, deciding when and how to make changes to a horse’s nutrition and strategies for keeping your horse at a healthy weight.
