    Interpreting Equine Behavior
    It can be fascinating to read about equine behavior, especially things like the organization in feral bands. However, when it comes to interpreting an individual's more subtle responses there is a good chance we could get it wrong. How many times have you heard it said that when a horse exhibits licking and chewing, e.g. during a body work session...

    How can I get my horse to eat his supplements?
    Question: Hi, my horse has stopped eating his U-Balance Foundation supplement.

  7. Why do companies use by-products and GMO ingredients?

    Why do companies use by-products and GMO ingredients?
    Question: My concern is why Uckele and so many other companies consistently use by-products in their supplements? I could never responsibly, knowingly give my horse GMO. This is such an important topic. Thank you- Dr. Kellon: By-products are often the most nutritious part of a food. For example, when white flour is made from wheat, the by-products are wheat germ and bran. ...

  8. Do Feeds and Supplements Go Bad?

    Do Feeds and Supplements Go Bad?
    Do Feeds and Supplements Go Bad? They sure do - but the labeling laws don't make it easy for you to figure out which ones may be out of date.  To be fair, a big part of the problem is determining when "out of date" (best not to feed) is likely to be. When we buy fresh dairy or meat...

    Question: I add poly zinc and copper along with loose salt to a small amount of oats daily.
