Welcome to the stallion edition of British

Breeder magazine. As the breeding

season gets underway, thoughts are

turning to the decisions that need to

be made and careful plans are being

made for the next generation of sport

horses.

This issue is eagerly anticipated with

such a wonderful selection of stallions

showcased from across the disciplines

and we look forward to meeting these

super sires up close and personal at the

Stallion Event.

We are also looking forward to seeing

the delightful selection of young horses

forward for the Equine Bridge. This

two-day performance evaluation gives

young horses a chance to show their

potential under saddle, with the top

scorers in each discipline taking away a

valuable £1000 bursary as well as

discipline membership for a year.

Badminton Box

Office Opens

The countdown to Badminton

begins now. The Box Office has

opened for Badminton Horse Trials,

bringing with it some New Year

cheer and the promise of a thrilling

return to top-class competition in

Britain.

There will not only be the opportunity to

watch the Olympic and European

champions in action on home ground, but

also the very best international

combinations vying to impress ahead

of the World Championships in Italy in

September.

“Badminton means the world to riders, it’s

our ‘Wimbledon’, the one everyone wants

to win and we’re all so looking forward to

having it back,” said Tom McEwen MBE.

A major change for 2022 is that parking

and admission tickets can only be bought

in advance — there will be no tickets

available at the gate. This includes

Saturday’s Cross Country, when there will

be improved new traffic access.

Badminton’s new live-streaming service,

will mean that everyone can keep up

with the action whether attending as a

spectator or watching from home. Now

available for purchase via the Badminton

TV page of the website for a discounted

annual fee of £14.99; if purchased from

1st April onwards the cost will be £19.99

and, even if you are unable to watch it

live, you won’t miss a beat of the action,

as it will be possible to view on demand

post-event.

“We are hugely excited at the prospect

of providing a wonderful five days of

competition and seeing everyone back

at Badminton again,” said Horse Trials

Director Jane Tuckwell. “We know how

much the event means to riders, owners,

sponsors, trade stand holders and

spectators, and we are doing our best to

ensure everyone has a thoroughly

enjoyable visit after a two-year-break.

It should be a great celebration.”

proud to be named as a recipient of

donations in memory of the late Tim

Holderness Roddam. Tim was a

passionate and knowledgeable

advocate of eventing for many years,

and a great supporter of British

It was fitting that the fund should be

used to support breeders of young sport

horses and ponies. A JustGiving page

was set up in Tim’s memory, and 100%

of the funds will be used to support the

further development of the top

scoring event horse in the British

Breeding Equine Bridge young horse

performance assessments. The top

scoring event horse at the Equine

Bridge on 11/12 February will receive

a bursary of £1000 to be used to

further develop their training.

Charley Hamilton wins SEIB Winter

Novice Qualifier at Northcote Stud

Charley Hamilton wins SEIB

Winter Novice Qualifier at

Northcote Stud in January.

With a turn of speed, Charley Hamilton

from Milltimber, Aberdeenshire claimed

first place in the seventh SEIB Winter

Novice Qualifier of the season held at

Northcote Stud on Sunday, riding

Caroline Ironside’s 6 year old chestnut

mare, Loretta Blue MFS.

Out of thirty-six starters, eighteen

navigated a first round clear with just

four going on to produce a double clear.

Charley Hamilton rode a lightning fast

round to stop the clock on her winning

double clear in 28.80 seconds.

MFS Loretta Blue (Zirocco Blue VDL

x Goodtimes) is owned and bred by

Caroline Ironside at MFS Stud Farm, a

highly regarded sport horse breeding

establishment breeding mainly KWPN,

Oldenburg and Hanoverian dressage,

showjumping and event horses. As a

foal, Caroline described Loretta blue

as “a phenomenal daughter of the

International Grand Prix stallion

ZIROCCO BLUE VDL. Her dam has

produced numerous horses competing

in both dressage and showjumping

and comes from the amazing mare line

of CORLAND VDL, one of the

best Holstein mare lines. Her dam

RETINA-S comes from a top

showjumping breeder in Holland and

the whole line is renowned for producing

horses to the very highest levels in sport.

Even at a young age this filly possesses

all the attributes to make a top class

showjumping horse and will make an

exceptional addition to our breeding

lines for the future”.

The mare has already got a number of

wins under her belt, including the 5 year

old young horse qualifier at the Daimler

Foundation at Morris Equestrian in July,

as well as being placed in Newcomers

classes with big double clears.

“Delighted to watch this combination

grow together”, commented Caroline on

facebook.

The stud is located in a beautiful part of

the North East of Scotland, overlooking

the Moray Firth/North Sea, and has

bred Champion foals and youngstock

that have topped the BEF Futurity, Annual

Breed Shows, Young Horse

Championships and County Shows in the

UK and USA.

Hot on their heels and taking the runner

up spot was Jessica Quine and Lalu

TW securing a double clear in 29.47

second.

said: “In this, our 30th year, and a time

at which the industry continues to face

challenges imposed by the pandemic,

we have tried to cover important

practical issues within the sector as well

as sharing the latest knowledge and

news. We hope the day will be

engaging, informative and fun and that

our hybrid format will once again

broaden our reach around the globe.”

The Equine Industry in a Changing

World will include contributions from

The Rt Hon Lord Benyon, Parliamentary

Under Secretary of State, Defra, Robert

Huey, Chief Veterinary Officer Northern

Ireland Executive and Dr Martin Blake,

Chief Veterinary Officer, Department

of Agriculture, Food and the Marine,

Ireland.

Equine Health will see David Mountford,

Chair of the British Horse Council and Dr

Richard Newton discussing topical

aspects of disease prevention and

control.

Workforce sustainability in the equine

sector will deliver a real-world insight

into the roles of humans and horses with

contributions from the British Grooms

Association, the Equestrian Employers

Association, the racing industry and

riding schools, along with equestrian

colleges and universities. The session

will close with a panel discussion and

questions from the audience.

Equine anthelmintic resistance will take

a detailed look at the growing threat of

resistance to the equine wormers that we

have available with presentations from

Dr Claire Stratford and Dr Alison Pyatt at

the Veterinary Medicines

Directorate. The responsibilities of

owners, vets, and RAMAs/SQPs in

helping to slow resistance will then be

discussed, with the inclusion of case

studies and opportunities for delegate

participation via Slido.

Breeding changes in the last 30 years

will be explored by Tullis Matson in the

Memorial lecture. The day will close

with the announcement of the Sir Colin

Equestrian sport named in

Olympic programme for

Los Angeles 2028

digital platforms. This significant and

rapid growth in the change of the digital

landscape, meant more fans were able

to experience the Games, with greater

accessibility to more content than ever

before.

The FEI President has welcomed

the announcement by the

International Olympic Committee

(IOC) that equestrian sport will

be proposed for inclusion in the

Olympic programme for the Los

Angeles 2028 Games.

During the IOC Executive Board meeting

in December, the initial list of

twenty-eight sports to be recommended

the LA28 Initial Sports Programme, which

includes equestrian, was agreed and is

now subject to final approval at the IOC

Session in February 2022. Discussions

also focussed on defining the process for

finalising the disciplines in each sport

offering early certainty to athletes,

National Olympic Committees (NOCs),

International Federations (IFs) and the

Organising Committee for the Olympic

Games (OCOG).

Universality, integrity and fairness,

gender equality and popularity were

highlighted as key requirements of the

evaluation criteria which will be used to

determine the disciplines and events for

the programme. Athlete safety,

environmental sustainability and keeping

the sport relevant to youth were also

reiterated as significant factors.

“I am confident equestrian sport, a

celebration of the unique bond between

human and equine athletes, has its place

in the Los Angeles 2028

Olympic Games programme”, FEI

President Ingmar De Vos said.

The IOC also published figures in

December which revealed the Tokyo

2020 Games reached a global

broadcast audience of more than three

billion people across linear TV and

“We need to guarantee global visibility

of our sport in the media and digital

platforms, and continue to showcase

relevant content and entice new fans.

We have this opportunity every four

years and consolidating equestrian sport

in the Olympic Movement is crucial for

the FEI and for our community” FEI

President Ingmar De Vos continued.

“Another key focus for the FEI is Youth

development. Keeping the youth

engaged in equestrian sport and

inspiring new generations to make the

Olympic Games their goal. We have

robust development programmes around

the world targeting the next generation

of athletes, but also fans and industry

professionals, because equestrian sport

is a way of life that is multifaceted and

extremely diverse.”

The approval of the Initial Sports

Programme will take place in February

2022 and the finalisation of the events

and athlete quota will be confirmed in

December 2024, following the Olympic

Games Paris 2024.

Using the wrong

wormer can

increase the risk

of potentially

fatal disease

Zoetis Inc. is advising horse

owners to ensure they use a

wormer that is indicated to treat

encysted small redworm this

winter.

“You may think any wormer will do for

the treatment of the dangerous encysted

small redworm but using one that does

not specifically treat the encysted stages

during late autumn or winter can actually

increase the risk of a horse with a high

encysted small redworm burden

developing larval cyathostominosis,

which can be fatal,” explains Zoetis vet

Wendy Talbot.

All horses of more than six months of age

should be blood tested by a vet to

determine the presence of an encysted

small redworm burden or treated with a

wormer that is licensed to treat

encysted small redworm in autumn/

winter, regardless of their faecal worm

egg count.

“It’s imperative that the wormer used is

indicated for encysted small redworm,”

advises Wendy. “This is because wormers

such as those containing ivermectin,

pyrantel or single dose fenbendazole

will remove the adult stages of small

redworm from the gut which then leaves

room for the encysted stages in the gut

wall to emerge and take their place. It

is this en masse emergence which can

cause severe damage to the gut resulting

in clinical signs such as diarrhoea, colic

and even death”

Moxidectin is the only active ingredient

licensed to treat encysted small redworm

in a single dose. Because moxidectin

acts against the encysted stages before

they have a chance to emerge, it is less

likely that larvae in the gut wall will be

able to cause this effect.

A five-day course of fenbendazole is

also licensed to treat encysted small

redworm but there is widespread

evidence of small redworm resistance

to fenbendazole, including the five-day

dose so a resistance test is

recommended before using it.

“A practical and cost-effective solution

to targeting parasites of concern over

winter, may be to combine a bot treatment

with encysted small redworm and

tapeworm treatments using a single dose

of moxidectin and praziquantel,” says

Wendy.

Always seek advice from your vet or

medicines prescriber.

2017 Chestnut

Dressage

Mick's pedigree brings an

outstanding cocktail of some of

Holland's most successful breeding

lines. His sire Apache is an extremely

interesting stallion. His exceptional

breeding record led to him being

awarded the status of "preferential"

sire by the KWPN, the highest

accolade the studbook offers for

its stallions. He brings the blood

of UB40 and Krack C. His KWPN

breeding value for dressage is 154

with a reliability of 95%.

Famously, of course, he is the sire of

Charlotte Dujardin's former Olympic

ride Gio whose ascent to Grand Prix

level at a young age is testimony to

the exceptional ability this stallion

produces. He is also the sire of the

double World Breeding Champion

Jovian whose performance at Verden

in 2021 was breathtaking. Mick's

mother Rozimone has an exceptional

and prolific breeding record. She is

the dam of two PSG/Inter I horses

already in Gibson and Farewell and

another licensed stallion in D'Joep.

Her sire, the legendary Ferro, needs

no introduction. It is very exciting to

be able to offer this young stallion.

the Lanaken World Championships

for 6-year-olds. He is a stallion

with an enormous jumping potential

and a well geared canter; a blood

horse with a remarkably good

temperament. The contribution of

thoroughbred blood is crucial for

eventing sport at the top level and

Amiro Z combines enough blood with

a very high quality type.

Amiro's father Amigo Toss xx goes

back directly to the mother of the

famous stallion Le Sancy xx, the

progenitor of Ramzes and Zeus.

Amiro's dam Renomee Z jumped at

the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996,

and the 1998 World Cup, with

Argentinian Ricardo Kierkegaard.

Amiro Z's damsire, the legendary

Ramiro Z, earned the titles 'Stallion

Amiro Z has already sired the

Westfalen Eventing Champion &

Ynslyns Orlando

Orlando is not your traditional

Section D - he is able to offer bone

and substance to a lighter TB or WB

mare whilst also being able to refine

a more traditional D or heavier mare.

This combined with his exceptional

temperament and versatility under

saddle means that he really is

always a good choice. And you

get the added bonus of being able

to predict the colour of your foal! A

56

chestnut mare will always guarantee

a palomino, whereas a bay or

black mare can produce a buckskin,

palomino or smokey black foal.

Orlando is WPCS licensed and is

graded with the SPSS, taking Central

Grading Champion for 2020

and Reserve Champion for Britain

2020. He is also the first Section D in

AES history to be graded with the

society - a true sports D! At both

gradings he gained fabulous marks

but the stand out would have to be

9's and 10's for his jumping ability

and an 8.75 for his canter work.

He is the type of stallion who will sire

a foal who can go out and do a nice

medium dressage test on Saturday &

a 1.10m showjumping on Sunday.

Studbook News - AES

Tantoni Salamanca

OCD DNA Test Available to all

AES Breeders and Stallion

Owners

of all ages, from foals and youngstock to

broodmares and stallions.

How does it work?

For the 2022 season we are delighted

to announce a very exciting step in our

studbook development aimed at offering

our breeders and stallion owners the

very best service and state-of-the art

support in breeding talented, healthy

and happy equine athletes. We will be

delighted to be working with our friends

at the KWPN who have been carrying

out groundbreaking work in developing

reliable breeding values to promote

equine health. We are proud to become

the first UK studbook to offer a DNA test

to determine a horse’s breeding value for

osteochondrosis.

Says Studbook Representative and Vice

President of the World Breeding

Federation for Sport Horses,

Dr Eva-Maria Broomer:

“We are delighted to have established

an excellent relationship with the KWPN,

with whom we are jointly leading the

Marketing Department at the WBFSH

and with whom we share many key

values, such as our desire to promote the

breeding of healthy and sound horses

capable of enjoying a long and happy

career in the sport. We are grateful to the

KWPN for making this exciting opportunity

available to our breeders. Analyses

of our studbook database and pedigrees

have shown that our breeding lines are

close enough to permit reliable testing

and calculation of breeding values.”

The test will be available to AES horses

The DNA-test requires a hair-sample

(with roots) that can be taken by your

vet, for example when they microchip

your foal and complete the sketch form,

or by one of our studbook inspectors or

representatives. You will be notified as

soon as your results are available, and

we will send you a report via email or in

the post.

You will receive a Genomic Breeding

Value, which indicates the likelihood of

your horse having a genetic

predisposition to develop or potentially

pass on OCD. If your horse’s Genomic

Breeding Value OC is higher than 95 he

or she will become eligible for a Select

Studbook Health Premium.

48 | BRITISH BREEDER


Studbook - News

We will make the test available to all

newly licensed stallions as a reliable

alternative to x-rays.

Studbook Evaluator Lucy Simpson

explains:

“When we see signs of OCD on an

x-ray, we still cannot know for sure if

these have developed as a result of a

heritable propensity to develop the

disease, or whether this is down to

environmental or developmental issues.

This uncertainty can be very frustrating,

particularly when a horse otherwise

shows no soundness issues. The test is

focused on heredity and determines a

horse’s ability to pass on OC to any

offspring. We are delighted that the

DNA test can therefore offer a sensible

and reliable alternative to assess the

suitability of breeding animals, stallions

and broodmares alike.”

The advantages of DNA testing are

clear. The test can already be done on a

foal, which gives owners and breeders

valuable information about the future

direction for their horse. The result of the

DNA test, which is expressed in an easily

interpreted Genomic Breeding Value

(GFW OC), has been found by the

KWPN to be three times more reliable

for breeding purposes than

“conventional” assessments.

What are Breeding Values?

In order to understand and interpret the

OCD test results, it is important to

explore how breeding values are

calculated, and what they represent.

Breeding values are calculated by first

observing a large reference population

with known phenotypes and

genotypes, in the case of OCD,

horses with and without OCD findings.

By relating detailed DNA profiles of

horses to their physical properties, we

can identify correlations, which form the

basis for understanding the likelihood of

other horses who carry the same genetic

markers to develop those same traits,

i.e. in this instance OCD.

In order to calculate a breeding value,

studbooks can use data about a stallion

or mare’s progeny, including national

and international performance records

and linear profiles.

These can be collated to identify the

phenotype and performance

characteristics that the horse appears to

be most likely to pass on. method used to

create indices for various characteristics

for breeding animals within a

population. A common index is based

on a deviation from 100, which is the

population norm so an index of 120 is

above the norm, whereas an index of 80

indicates an animal below the norm.

As the development of OCD in horses is

also subject to a wide range

environmental influences, from nutrition

of the broodmare all the way to

ongoing management, these values are

an estimation.

Since there is large variability among

individuals - even closely related

individuals - large data sets are required

to develop the benchmark index.

Historically, studbooks have been

working with their own separate data

sets. As many of the most successful and

popular stallions are graded with

multiple studbooks, and produce

offspring all over the world, it makes

perfect sense to work together across

different studbooks to share data and

experiences.

Says Dr Eva-Maria Broomer:

“The fragmentation and relatively small

breeding populations of sports horses in

the UK have been a challenge when it

comes to calculating reliable breeding

values and promote genomic selection

as a way of developing sports horse

breeding in this country.

This is why we have invested a lot of

energy in supporting cross-studbook

initiatives, such as the British Breeding

Futurity. Our OCD DNA testing project

with the KWPN is another great example

how we can take leaps ahead by

working together.”

FURISTO – WH-1

First BWBS Licenced Stallion

we know today. Renamed in 2005 when

Debbie and her husband retired and

moved to South Africa, the past nearly

half-century has seen a total of well over

420 stallions graded with the Society

(including 48 British Sports Horses and

12 ponies) with an increasing number

of them being British-bred (including a

number with BHHS passports), although

imported stallions or British bred

stallions with foreign passports still tend

to predominate, now the foreign

studbooks are unable to register in the

UK, British studbooks will take the credit

for these home bred animals. The mare

studbook Is equally distinguished and

for a mare to be given Select status in

the WBSUK mare’s book is an honour

indeed. The most recent WBSUK grading

took place on 6th November 2021 at

Home Farm, Theddingworth. Judged by

Katy Holder-Vale and Hans Heinrich

Bruning. Eleven stallions came forward

for assessment.

Feinster Prinz

With the Warmblood Breeders Studbook

UK (formerly the British Warm-Blood

Society) now fast approaching its 45th

birthday it is probably a good time to

remind people of its origins and early

years as many of its ground-breaking

innovations are now regarded as almost

commonplace by breeders of sports

horses and ponies in the UK.

Founded in 1977 by American-born Mrs

Debbie Wallin and her Swedish husband

Anders when they moved to the UK from

Denmark and found no studbook in the

country would accept their performance

tested Danish, Hannoverian and

Swedish warmblood mares into their

breeding registers or consider their

outstanding young Danish Warmblood

colt Atlantus as a breeding stallion, the

then British Warm-Blood Society soon

found favour with a top class group of

competition-minded breeders including

Jane Kidd (Maple Stud with Maple Duel

and Maple courier), Jennie

Loriston-Clarke (Catherston Stud with

Dutch Courage and Dutch Gold), Fred

Welch (owner of the international

showjumper Interpol) and Marie Smith

(owner of the first stallion in the BWBS

book, the Hannoverian Furisto). These

pioneers were soon followed by Mrs E

M Kirby and her well-known 100-day

tested Hannoverian stallion Akkord and

the Holme Grove Stud with their first

stallion Istanbul.

With such an illustrious beginnings it is

perhaps not surprising that the past 45

years have been starred with many firsts.

These include being the first UK studbook:

• To open its graded studbooks for

stallions and mares to all recognised

warmblood and sports horse and

sports pony breeds

• To hold public gradings for stallions

and mares with publicly viewable

marks and full grading critiques

• To promote showing on the triangle

and the wearing of whites when

presenting stock for judging

• To use internationally recognised

grading judges from other European

studbooks

• To recognise competition

performance as part of a

progressive grading structure.

From these beginnings has grown the

Warmblood Breeders Studbook UK that

The champion was the 2-year-old British

bred Oldenburg passported bay colt

FEINSTER PRINZ by For Emotion out of

El St. Dornroschen by Dimaggio, bred

and owned by Lynne Crowden -

Woodlander Stud. Reserve champion

was the 2-year-old British bred

Oldenburg passported brown colt DA

FIORE by D’Egalite out of St Pr

St.Floriade by Florencio I, bred by Robin

Farquahar and owned by Fay Thomas.

Da Fiore

A further six stallions were also graded

and approved for breeding. DIAMOND

EZZARD, SESCIONALE, IKANDI

DANONE’S DJJIN, WILD FIRE,

DESTEENO and CLASSIC CHIKO.

Full details of these can be found on

events and rules for registration and

2022

The first major event for the NPS will be

the 2022 AGM that will take place on

19th February in Warwick. At the AGM

the winners of the 2021 Stallion Awards

will be recognised and owners invited to

come forward and receive their prizes.

The awards are calculated based on

results achieved by progeny in both

ridden and in hand classes at recognised

Premium shows in the 2021 season.

The overall champion is Mrs MacInnes’s

late Kilvington Scoundel, still a much

sort after sire through frozen semen and

he was also the leading sire of 148cm

ponies. Previous champion Cusop

Dimension, also now retired from

breeding, was reserve overall champion

and the leading sire of 138cm ponies.

Cusop Dimension is owned by Mr

Pitman and has been the senior sire at

Wycroft Stud for many years.

The leading sire of 128cm ponies was

Hightopps Jet owned by Miss Roberts.

The Stanley Grange Trophy is awarded

to the leading young stallion 8 years and

under and has proved to be an

excellent indicator to future leading sires.

The award this year has been made to

Ian Boylan’s home bred Alonby

Chardonnier, a successful competitor

himself and now producing some very

exciting youngstock.

Results at Premium shows also feed into

the Stallion Premium programme which

was a new incentive in 2021. Premiums

are awarded annually to stallions who

have offspring successful in breeding

classes.

All Premium shows and full details of

both schemes are listed on the NPS

The SHB(GB) graded Thoroughbred stallion Recharge

(Cape Cross-Robellino) now stands at new Hill Farm, Worsely.

Who would have thought a year ago

that we would once again looking

forward to spring when we can all start

getting out and about again – and

hopefully some promise of blue sky

which has been in short supply the last

month or so. Despite the problems last

year threw at us all SHB(GB) managed

to continue with a programme of mare,

stallion and our new foal gradings. All

things considered our grading days

were successful with a pleasing overall

number of horses and foals forward.

Hopefully we will see and grade even

more mares and foals this year.

Stallion Grading

Due to lockdown and a continuing

uncertainty throughout the year we

continued to grade stallions on demand.

We added 13 new stallions to the

studbook of which six are Thoroughbreds

– the highest number of Thoroughbreds

forward for several years. The latest

addition is the good-looking Cape Cross

son Recharge, one of 10 for his dam, the

Group One winner Rebelline

(Robellino-Rainbow Quest). The

16-year-old, Recharge who

formerly stood at Shade Oak Stud, is

now standing at New Hill Farm Worsely

near Manchester.

Paul Hallam’s four-year-old Zest for Life

(WHS Zorro ex Didansa by San Remo)

is the latest to pass the full grading.

Other recent grading successes are;

MC’s Ringo King 2018 (Cornetto King

ex Sannanvalley by Igguldon Skye

Laird) and Sea Tzar 2003 (Alice’s

Diamond Slipper RID ex Seashell II by

Sea Crest).

Mare Grading

We graded 39 mares over the summer

with 17 (44%) grading into the Head

Studbook, a good illustration of the high

quality forward. The accolade of the

highest marked mare went to

four-year-old, half-bred Woodclose

Anisa. The mare, bred by Irish Draught

enthusiast Sue Benson from Cleckheaton

in Yorkshire, comes from an exceptional

line of high scoring SHB(GB) graded

mares; her grand-dam Woodclose Silver

Storm was the top graded SHB(GB)

mare in 2012 and her Irish Draught dam

Woodclose Rhianna (Grove

Warrior-Gort Boy) the runner up in 2017.

Anisa, by the Thoroughbred Andes, was

champion foal and reserve supreme

in-hand hunter on her only outing at the

2017Great Yorkshire Show.

The second highest scoring mare was the

Thoroughbred Double Spirit

(Double Trigger ex Miss Soprano by

Opera Ghost) owned by Mrs Elizabeth

Jones of Millbry Hill Stud.

Fifteen-year-old Spirit is in foal to the

SHB(GB) graded Irish Draught Stallion

Castlegar Cool Mist – her second foal

by the stallion that stands at the stud.

Foal Grading – sponsored by VT

Vets

We graded a total of 34 foals with 20

of them awarded a premium (a score

of 8 or more). Ian Darcy’s homebred

colt foal Westerdale St George came

out top scoring full marks. He is by the

eventing stallion Up with the Lark out

Westerdale Queen of Hearts by the

Thoroughbred Chase the Ace. The high

scoring runner-up, Millbry Wuthering

Heights was also by Up with the Lark out

of the KWPN mare Bronte by Riverman.

With thanks to our foal grading sponsor

VT Vets the owner of the leading foal will

receive a stud voucher to the value of

£500 and the owner of the runner-up a

stud voucher for £300.

Caption Westerdale St George – the leading

SHB(GB) graded foal in 2021

Two other foals gained more than 9;

Merrigan’s En Vogue by Tiger Attack out

of the Charlotte Martin’s former HOYS

winner Solaris Dwenqua by

Quaterback, and Sally Bullens

homebred grey colt Borough

Tennerpenny, another out of the

former leading international event mare

Borough Pennyz. Tennerpenny is by

Catherston Stud’s SHB(GB) graded

stallion Timolin who sired four of the

top 12 graded foals this year. Stallions

Catherston Oakley and Gemini’s Classic

Opera both sired two progeny in the top

12.

Dates for the diary

10th April – Badminton Stable Yard,

Judges Seminar and Conference.

Although it is hoped that as many judges,

probationary and potential judges as

possible will attend, this event is also

open to all members and non-members.

All members will receive an official

invitation however could all

non-members please advise the office.

In the event of a large take up members

will take precedence. More details will

follow, keep an eye on the website and

FB.

Registration Delays

We can only apologise to those

waiting to receive new registrations

and passports that need to be returned.

This is because the DNA verification at

Weatherbys is taking much longer – as

least twice as long – than we are used

to. Please note that this delay applies to

all breed societies not just SHB(GB). We

will of course send out passports as soon

as is possible.

Celebrating

Success - 2021

Grading &

Evaluation

Results

Following from the success of our virtual

events in 2020, the SPSS took a blended

approach to Gradings and Evaluations

in 2021. There were full “in-person”

stallion & mare gradings at a

number of venues plus the opportunity to

eGrade mares or present a stallion for a

prE-grading virtual “eAssessment” (both

by supplying video footage). Overall,

we were very pleased with the success

of this approach and a hybrid approach

was also used for SPSS passported or

overstamped youngstock who could be

evaluated in person at an SPSS event or

they could be evaluated through the

British Breeding Futurity (both in-person

& virtual) where they were also eligible

for an SPSS Premium, based on their

Futurity Evaluation score. The scores of

all eligible youngstock went forward to

the SPSS End of Year Youngstock Awards

and the SPSS is delighted to also

announce those results as well as the

Mare & Stallion Grading Champions.

Stallions

The SPSS team were pleased that all bar

one of the 2020 eAssessed stallions who

were presented in-person passed and

have been accepted as SPSS Graded

Stallions as were a further two stallions

which went straight to the in-person

grading stage. Another stallion was

accepted at the in-person grading

but has deferred completion of the

post-grading process until 2022. In

addition, two 2 year old stallions were

presented for eAssessment and both

were accepted, allowing them to cover

as SPSS stallions in 2021/2022, before

being presented at a full SPSS stallion

grading in 2022. So our congratulations

to the breeders & owners of...

2021 Stallion Grading Champion,

Godrics Dionysus (SPSS Elite Danger

36 x Donnerwetter). This 5 year old

Deutsche Reitpony, British-bred by Bev

Brown, is owned by Andrew Constable

(pictured left with his granddaughter

Daisy Bullman on Dionysus), Pat Pomp

& Elly Darling. Daisy has had a very

successful season competing at British

Dressage on Dionysus and was praised

by SPSS judge Anna Lowndes for being

a lovely rider - they were the Preliminary

Champions at the Keysoe Area

Festival then scored 72.43% to be

2021 Stallion Grading Champion – Godrics Dionysus

Reserve Champions in the Preliminary

Under 21 class at the Winter Area

Festival Championship in July. Ten

days later, they were back at Hartpury

competing in the 5 Year Old Young Pony

Final where they were again Reserve

Champions - a remarkable achievement

when 12 year old Daisy was the

youngest rider across all of the 3 Young

Pony Finals. Since then, Daisy &

Dionysus have competed at the Summer

Regional Championships at Preliminary,

a Summer Area Festival at Novice and

have won at Elementary level. At the

grading, Dionysus scored 82.33% and

was praised for his “excellent workable

attitude” and for being a “lovely sports

pony stallion”.

2021 Stallion Grading Reserve

Champion, Hearnesbrook New Moon

(Hearnesbrook Halley x Thunderbolt).

A 13 year old Connemara, British-bred

by Mrs RC & Miss V Buxton and owned

by Jane Holderness-Roddam, New

Moon is a proven competition pony with

many successes in Working Hunter Pony

classes including winning his class and

then being Reserve Champion at Royal

Windsor in 2019. He has also

competed at British Showjumping

(1.10m) and British Eventing (BE90 &

BE 100). In 2021, ridden by Gabriella

Wilton-Baker he was second in his class

at the Barbury Cotswold Cup, finishing

on his dressage score.

At the grading, the judges praised his

“excellent attitude and nice rideability”

and said he was a “lovely type with lots

of ability”, awarding him 81.67%.

You can find out more about all the

stallions accepted in 2021 as well as the

other stallions standing with the SPSS in

2022 on our website.

Mares

We are delighted to announce that

across the 24 mares graded by the SPSS

in 2021, the Mare Grading Supreme

Champion was Diane Kilshaw’s

Weser-Ems passported Sophie

(Dressman I x Black Boy), who graded

into the Head Studbook with the judge

describing her as “the ideal brood mare”

when giving her the perfect 10 for

General Impression. 22 year old

Sophie, who was the oldest mare

presented by 7 years, was bred in

Germany by Reinhard Kramer and has

had a stellar career as a broodmare.

For her breeder, Sophie had 15 foals

including a Bundeschampion, a

Vice-Bundeschampion & 3 licensed

stallions as well as many successful

competition ponies and her legacy in

Germany continues through her sons

and daughters, who have also produced

licenced stallions and good competition

ponies, including Golden Touch who has

represented Germany at international

Pony Dressage.

Studbook News - SPSS

Diane Kilshaw (centre) with her home-bred SPSS 2021 Supreme Youngstock Champion foal, Henza She’s On Fire, and her SPSS 2021 Supreme Mare Grading

Champion and Elite Head Studbook dam, Sophie.

Since Diane brought Sophie to the UK,

her first foal was the 2019 Elite Foal Tour

Pony Champion and her most recent,

the SPSS 2021 Youngstock Supreme

Champion. In recognition of Sophie’s

outstanding contribution to sports pony

breeding, the SPSS Governing

Committee unanimously decided to

recognise this by awarding Sophie the

ultimate SPSS breeding accolade - Elite

Graded status.

Then, from the oldest mare to the

youngest (by just 5 days), the next

highest scoring mare and 2021 Reserve

Supreme Champion mare was 3 year

old SPSS passported Delaroche Royal

Gold (Hilkens Gold Card x Prins Alfred)

who scored 82.92% and also went into

the SPSS Head Studbook. British-bred

by Lucy Sheldrake and owned by John &

Dawn Rose, the judges said that she was

a “lovely type” and “agile and athletic”.

Royal Gold was only shown once, as

a yearling, but she won her class then

was Reserve Champion, beating the 2 &

3 year olds. Now backed, her owners

hope that she will be just as successful

under saddle.

The SPSS is very pleased that another of

the mares presented for grading in 2021

received the sought after SPSS Elite

status, and that was Sarah Rook’s

Bannview Black Bess. All that is known

about Bess’s breeding is that she came

from Ireland, but missing or incomplete

pedigree has never stopped the SPSS

grading mares and acknowledging

their achievements – and Bess’s are

impressive! Born in 2010, Bess was also

awarded SPSS Elite Graded status in

recognition of her having represented

GB at FEI Eventing - in particular, ridden

by Mollie Harris, they completed the

Great Witchingham International CCI-S

2* and the CCI-L J2*at the Frickley Park

National Under 18 Championships in

2019. Once Bess’s 2021 foal (by

another SPSS Elite Graded Eventing

Pony, Prometheus) is weaned, Sarah is

hoping that Bess will go back under

saddle and resume her Eventing career.

Youngstock

We are delighted to announce that the

2021 SPSS Supreme Youngstock

Champion title goes to the pony foal

Henza She’s On Fire. Bred by her

owner, Diane Kilshaw, She’s On Fire is

by FS Numero Uno and out of Diane’s

2021 SPSS Mare Grading Supreme

Champion and Elite Head Studbook

mare Sophie. She’s On Fire was

evaluated at the Catherston Futurity

event where she received perfect 10s for

both her walk and canter, gaining 9.2

overall and a Futurity Elite Premium.

Feature Article - Worming | Towcester Vets

Why worry

about worming

young stock?

It is common practice for equine

premises to have worming protocols in

place but this often focussed on the adult

population. Do we need to worry about

the young stock too? Should the same

protocols exist for them? The fact that

foals are born with no natural immunity

against worms and that we are seeing

ever increasing resistance to commonly

used wormers mean foals and young

stock are most at risk of serious and

potentially fatal disease from worms.

This article runs through some clinical

cases highlighting the importance of

farm/ yard management and the

appropriate use and timing of wormers

in these most at risk individuals.

Topics covered:

Ascarid Impactions

Tapeworm and intussusceptions

A resistance problem

A potentially fatal

ascarid impaction

A four month old foal presented with ill

thrift, a poor coat, nasal discharge and

an elevated breathing rate. The foal had

not been wormed. Ultrasound of the

chest revealed changes consistent with

pneumonia and infectious changes were

present on bloods, with a high white

blood cell count. Ascarids can cause

respiratory signs as well as

gastrointestinal signs due to the

extraordinary route around the body the

larval stages take (migrating from the

intestine to the liver, into the circulation,

into the lungs before being swallowed

and ending back in the gut to mature

further). Minimal response to antibiotics

was seen in this foal, as is common with

respiratory signs associated with

ascarids (Clayton and Duncan 1978).

The foal received a wormer and the

following morning was found showing

severe colic signs that did not improve

with pain relief. Abdominal ultrasound

revealed multiple loops of distended,

amotile small intestine. The foal was

referred for emergency colic surgery.

A huge ascarid impaction blocking the

small intestine was diagnosed.

Fortunately, this foal made a full

recovery.

Abdominal ultrasound revealing multiple loops of amotile small intestine

The risk of acarid infection is greater on

premises that are breeding foals

regularly, as youngsters continually

burden the land. However, the size of the

burden is hard to quantify as there is no

correlation between worm numbers and

egg counts (Nielsen et al. 2010)

Ascarid infections can be fatal if they

become impacted in the small

intestinal. This is most common in foals

aged 4-8 months (Tatz et al 2012). To

avoid this aim to treat from 2 months of

age (treating prior to this is less

effective and encourages development

of resistance). Resistance to ivermectin

and moxidectin is seen widely in ascarid

populations. Treating with five days of

Fenbendazole (Panacur ®) can help

target the younger/ larval stages and

has a slower onset of activity so can be

useful if heavy burdens are suspected.

Treating with pyrantel is also beneficial.

Once horses reach maturity and their

innate immunity develops targeted

treatment for ascarids becomes less

necessary.

Tapeworm and

intussusceptions

An eight-month-old weanling presented

with ill thrift and intermittent low-grade

colic signs of a few days’ duration,

which had worsened over time. The

weanling was from a long-established

stud farm that foals a large number of

mares each season. The weanling was

yet to be wormed for tapeworm.

Ultrasound revealed significantly

oedematous large intestinal wall and a

suspected intussusception. This weanling

underwent surgery, a diagnosis of an

intussusception was made and

tapeworm were identified at the

junction between the ileum and the

caecum. Thankfully, despite the gut

initially appearing severely

compromised, once the intussusception

was resolved and the blood supply

returned, no gut had to be removed

and the yearling made a good and full

recovery.

Abdominal ultrasound revealing oedematous

(thickened large intestinal wall) and suspected

intussusception.

Several studies have found an

association between the presence of

tapeworms and colic (Nielsen 2016b),

particularly in horses under three years

of age (Sembrat 1975). Large numbers

of the developing stages of these worms

attach to part of the gut wall, particularly

the ileum, caecum and the ileo-caecal

junction. Colic can be associated with a

physical obstruction of the lumen or due

to damage of the gut lining (mucosa)

and can be associated with

intussusceptions

58 | BRITISH BREEDER


Feature Article - Worming | Towcester Vets

An intussusception is when one part of

the gut slides into an adjacent part. Both

impactions and intussusceptions require

surgical treatment as above. Smaller

tapeworm burdens can cause more mild

signs and should be considered in cases

of recurrent colic.

Tapeworm incidence varies

significantly with geography. The

sensitivity of diagnosing tapeworm in

faeces using the standard method is

low, at 10% (Nielsen 2016b). However,

saliva or blood tests taken from multiple

adults in the population (>20%) can

help identify the level of exposure on the

premises. If this result is high foals should

be treated from 6 months and then

treated twice yearly, but if low this can

be delayed and reduced to once yearly.

In cases of recurrent colic or following

surgery where tapeworm are identified

treatment should be administered when

the horse has recovered.

A resistance problem.

A yearling presented from a farm that

had bred a few foals each year for 5-10

years. The yearling presented with

consistent ill thrift and loose droppings,

it had been wormed previously but

predominantly with ivermectin. Bloods

revealed elevations of a chronic

infectious/ inflammatory marker

(fibrinogen) but were otherwise normal.

A faecal egg count (FEC) was 300 eggs

per gram (EPG). Ascarids had been

noted in the droppings.

A faecal egg count reduction test *

(FECRT) was performed post treatment

with ivermectin revealing a minimal

reduction in the count (250 EPG) post

worming thus confirming ivermectin

resistance. The yearling was treated with

a double dose of pyrantel (to also cover

tapeworm) and wormers have been

rotated since, to good effect.

Resistance to wormers has reached an

alarming point, with ivermectin resistance

to ascarids being reported worldwide, to

the point that it so should be

expected until proven otherwise

(Peregrine et al. 2014). Given ascarids

are the most dangerous parasite for foals

this is even more worrying.

Worming with fenbendazole or pyrantel

is favourable where ivermectin resistance

is known or suspected.

Resistance to cyathastomes has also

been demonstrated (Reinemeyer et al.,

2015; Bellaw et al., 2018). Given the

widespread occurrence of resistance to

fenbendazole in cyathostomes across

the world, moxidectin is generally the

treatment of choice, although patterns of

resistance to moxidectin are now

being seen. Performing FECRTs yearly, or

when resistance is suspected, to evaluate

the efficacy of wormers against

strongyles and ascarids, is advised.

Points of consideration:

FECs are not as useful in foals/ youngsters as they are with

adults. The focus now is to leave a small untargeted

population of worms (the refugia) on the pasture rather than

try and eradicate all, this helps young stock develop immunity

safely and reduces development of resistance.

FECRTs should be used annually or when resistance is

suspected.Rotation of wormers helps reduce development of

resistance. Do not under-dose horses and foals; use weight

tapes or scales to determine body weights.

Recently weaned foals should be turned out onto the “cleanest”

pastures with the lowest burdens.

In general target ascarids from 2-5 months of age and then

strongyle and tapeworm from weaning and thereon.

Yearlings and two-year olds should continue to be treated as

“high” shedders and receive about three-four yearly treatments.

Moxidectin (Equest ®) is safe in foals greater than four months,

moxidectin and praziquantel (Equest Pramox ®) is only safe

in foals greater than six months old. All wormers are safe in

pregnant and lactating mares.

*A faecal egg count reduction test (FECRT) is a commonly used method for

monitoring drug resistance and involves performing a faecal egg count prior to

treatment and two weeks post treatment then calculating the relative change in

counts.

Article - Equine Viral Arteritis EVA | Zoetis

EVA: Equine Viral Arteritis

What is Equine Viral Arteritis?

Equine viral arteritis (EVA) is a virus that

is found in horse populations in many

countries. While EVA is not usually

life-threatening to otherwise healthy

adult horses, it can cause abortion in

pregnant mares and establish a

long-term carrier state in breeding

stallions. Rarely, it can cause death in

young foals1.

EVA is notifiable in the UK meaning if it

is suspected in any stallion, or in a mare

within 14 days of mating, you must stop

all breeding activities immediately, notify

DEFRA and continue to seek veterinary

advice. EVA was last reported in the UK

in 2019 involving non-Thoroughbred

horses imported from other EU countries

where the virus is endemic. One

outbreak involved the subsequent

respiratory spread of infection

associated with attendance at equine

competition events in the UK2.

What are the symptoms

of EVA?

The symptoms and severity of EVA can

vary widely. Infection may be obvious or

there may be signs at all2.

Clinical signs include flu-like respiratory

disease, fever, anorexia, depression,

swelling of the lower legs, conjunctivitis,

swelling around the eye socket, nasal

discharge, skin rash and swelling of the

scrotum and mammary glands2.

In breeding mares, abortion may occur

or those infected late in gestation may

give birth to foals with potentially fatal

breathing problems2.

How is EVA transmitted?

The equine arteritis virus causing EVA

is most frequently spread through close

contact with infected horses who transmit

the virus through respiratory secretions,

or via the semen of infected stallions,

directly during mating or indirectly via

artificial insemination (AI). Aborted

foetuses also have the potential to

spread the virus.3.

Once initial infection has occurred most

animals excrete the virus in bodily

secretions, including semen, nasal and

ocular discharges, urine and faeces for

up to three weeks. The virus is then

cleared by the immune system but the

accessory sex glands in stallions remain

infected, which means the male of the

species is an important source of the

virus. Once infected, some stallions can

become carriers, shedding the virus

for anything from several weeks to a

lifetime3.

Infection in mares, whether caused by

the respiratory route or via semen, is

usually short lived. Mares do not

become carriers of EVA and the disease

usually doesn’t result in long term health

implications. However, if the mare is

pregnant when contracting EVA, it can

result in abortion or a weak foal.

How can I prevent EVA?

It is important to ensure that any

stallions being used for breeding

purposes, either directly or via AI,

comply with the Horserace Betting Levy

Board Code of Practice on EVA. If you

are a mare owner, you should ask to see

papers certifying that the stallion is clear

and has been vaccinated, before it is

allowed to breed with your mare2.

BRITISH BREEDER| 61


Article - Equine Viral Arteritis EVA | Zoetis

Vaccination

The HBLB codes of practice recommend

the routine vaccination of stallions

(including teasers) and colts to stop

the spread of EVA in breeding horse

populations and so prevent outbreaks

of virus-related abortions and/or loss of

young foals. The aim is to minimise the

risk of the establishment of the carrier

state in stallions, reducing the reservoir of

potential infection2.

The routine vaccination of mares,

however, is not necessary unless a

widespread outbreak occurs. Your vet

will be able to provide you with further

advice relating to vaccination against

EVA2.

Sero-surveillance, of stallions

vaccinated, to provide estimates of

antibody levels against EVA, showed

that to achieve and maintain levels of

immunity required to protect against

developing semen shedding, stallions

require several boosters in addition to

the primary course3.

What do vaccinations do?

Prevention is key to the control of any

equine disease. The intention is to reduce

the level of challenge whilst

maximising the horse’s immunity.

Vaccination is one of the most important

ways to help achieve this. Vaccinations

against contagious diseases such as EVA

have two main functions: the first is to

provide protective immunity and the

second is to reduce the spread of

disease4.

Simplistically a vaccine imitates a

specific disease in order to stimulate the

acquired immune response more quickly

and with greater magnitude than in an

unvaccinated horse. The immune system

then communicates with the other body

systems to regulate and destroy this

foreign material or ‘pathogen’.

Vaccination helps to provide

protective immunity, priming the horse’s

own immune system to allow it to mount

an improved immune response more

quickly and with a greater magnitude

when challenged in the future4.

To work successfully an effective vaccine

must be used and the horse must have a

healthy immune system.

OPU - Giving Options To Breeders

by Emma Tomlinson MA VetMB MRCVS

It can be very overwhelming when

deciding the right Artificial Breeding

method to suit your mare, however one

technique breaking ground in the UK

provides more options than most. Ovum

Pick Up (or OPU as its often referred

to as) is providing solutions for many

breeders with mares and circumstances

that are not suited to more common

artificial breeding techniques. Ovum Pick

up is a procedure whereby Oocytes are

extracted directly from mare’s ovaries by

aspirating the follicles with a specialist

needle and pump. The Oocytes are then

sent to specialist labs in Europe where

they are inseminated directly with a

single sperm taken from a fraction of a

straw of Frozen Semen, this is called ICSI

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. The

embryo can be frozen and transferred at

a later date or transferred directly into a

recipient.

The donor mare is scanned prior to an

OPU session to ensure she has at least

15 follicles across both ovaries. These

follicles need to also be within 10-20mm

in size to ensure the best results from

the session. The procedure involves a

trans-vaginal scanning method to access

the ovaries and aspirate each viable

follicle to recover an oocyte. The oocyte

recovery rate per follicle is around

50-60% and usually requires 6-8

oocytes to successfully produce an

embryo using ICSI. This means that you

will not necessarily get an embryo from

each OPU session, it is important to

factor in around 2 OPU sessions

(repeatable at 3-week intervals)

for each embryo you want to achieve.

In order to send the extracted oocytes

over to Italy the donor mare currently

needs 3 different tests taken, all sent to

Animal Plant and Health Agency Labs.

These tests are: EIA, EVA, and two CEM

tests taken a least 7 days apart. Around

3 weeks should be allowed in order to

get all test results back from the lab, so

planning ahead is key if OPU is being

considered.

When explained like this, Ovum Pick Up

can seem overwhelming and technical.

However, it is a great solution for

breeders who are struggling with

roadblocks in their breeding plans. For

example, OPU is ideal for breeders with

mares with fertility issues who produce

embryos that are not viable for Embryo

Transfer, or those who cannot carry a

pregnancy at all. One of the

biggest positives of OPU is that it is being

frequently used with breeders who want

to use Stallions with either limited frozen

available, or sub-fertile semen. As only

a fraction of frozen semen needs to be

used, the fertility of a Stallion is much less

relied upon to achieve a pregnancy.

A straw of frozen semen can be used for

6-10 ICSI sessions so Stallion owners

with Stallions who have passed away

can use less of their semen in storage

when trying to achieve a pregnancy.

OPU can also be used in end-of life

situations through post-mortem oocytes

retrieval. This is where the oocytes are

extracted after the mare has

unfortunately passed away. Four years

ago, one of our clients’ top polo mares

tragically died on the operating table. It

had always been her plan to do several

cycles of Embryo Transfer with her to

carry on her fantastic bloodlines,

however this was clearly no longer an

option. The decision was made straight

away to try and harvest her Oocytes

and send them to Italy to carry out ICSI.

Our head vet performed this

procedure in the middle of the night and

Oocytes were recovered. The Oocytes

were each injected and an embryo was

produced. We now get updates on the

gorgeous Bay foal produced via OPU

and ICSI, he is now broken and ready to

start a successful career, just like his dam.

Without such procedures as OPU and

ICSI, this would not have been

possible, and these bloodlines would

have tragically ended with our client’s

mare.

Should the worst happen to top

competing mares, OPU and ICSI can

provide a brilliant solution to breeding

their offspring.

Feature - OPU | Tomlinson Vets

Another of our clients was given a tough

ultimatum a few weeks ago, her mare

had been having specialist orthopaedic

farriery involving fibre glass casts to help

her with ongoing issues resulting from an

acute pedal bone fracture. Tragically the

procedure was not providing the results

needed and she would have to be put to

sleep with a few weeks. With very little

time left, it was decided to try OPU/ICSI

as a last attempt to breed from her mare.

She had already bred a gorgeous colt

with us through Embryo Transfer from her

mare and chosen Stallion who has not

long been backed and coming along

brilliantly. With OPU as the only option

at this time of the year, it was a

no-brainer. Because of this, our client

now has three frozen embryos ready

to be returned to us and implanted in

our recipient mares, giving her another

option to carry on the legacy of her

beloved mare.

As Ovum Pick Up can be done outside

of the breeding season, it allows clients

to have the option to breed in end-of-life

situations. It also provides clients with

top level competing mare’s a solution to

breeding as it does not have to interrupt

their busy competition schedules that

typically coincide with the breeding

season. This client was also using a

Stallion with poor fertility and the little

semen in storage would have been

unlikely to produce pregnancies through

Embryo Transfer.

Ovum Pick Up can offer many options

for breeders who would otherwise be

very limited for choice. If your mare has

fertility issues, or should a worst-case

circumstance arise, OPU can be used

as a breeding option to carry on their

all-important bloodlines.

Feature - Worming Foals

Meet Maverick:

A four week old

foal with a

surprising worm

egg count result!

weeks

Maverick Eating Grass

Foals are born free of parasites but will

be exposed to them within the first few

days of life. Their immature immune

systems make them very vulnerable to

infection, which can have lasting and

very damaging effects. To help protect

them we recommend worming foals

proactively from four weeks old, every

six to eight weeks until they are 6 months

old. With wormer resistance increasing

it’s also advisable to put some worm egg

counts into your programme at around

three and five months old to ensure this

treatment is being effective.

Usually it’s threadworm and then ascarid

that new foals are most at risk from but

for this handsome chap, a Quarter Horse

foal called Maverick, it was redworm

that made a very early appearance.

He had a first worm egg count at exactly

four weeks old and we were surprised

to find a low count for redworm (50

e.p.g. Strongyle eggs). This means that

he had already ingested redworm larvae

from his environment and these had then

developed within his gut to become

egg-laying adults!

The small redworm species are some of

the fastest developing parasites that

affect horses. It’s one of the reasons

they’re so numerous and dangerous and

why we have to test or treat so regularly.

They have been estimated to have a

lifecycle of between five to six weeks so

it was a real shock to see the eggs

making an appearance after just four

weeks. Perhaps the lifecycle of some

species of small redworm is even faster

than first thought.

Maverick’s result is testimony to just how

easily horses can become infected and

how rapidly this parasite can begin to

colonise in their gut. This tenacity is what

makes small redworm such a threat to

horse health and why a redworm

problem in particular, can so quickly get

out of hand.

WHERE DID THE REDWORM

COME FROM?

Although very young foals don’t graze

or eat hard feed they are curious about

exploring their environment and mimic

68 | BRITISH BREEDER

grazing behaviour, mouthing at grass

and licking and investigating with their

muzzles.

At just a few days old Maverick was also

observed enthusiastically attempting to

eat his mum's fresh poo. This is a

common behaviour called

coprophagia, which is from the Latin for

"faeces eating." It can take up to a year

or more for foals to develop a healthy

gut and so they are sometimes drawn

to eating other horse’s poo to help them

pick up micro-organisms to aid digestion.

Maverick Eating Poo

It’s also thought that as parasite eggs

and larvae are likely to be ingested as

part of this process, in the right

environment this could stimulate the

foals' immune system and help to build a

natural defence. This means it’s not about

eliminating exposure to parasites which

is impossible, but rather managing a

burden and stepping in before the level

where it could cause disease.Maverick’s

parasite infection could have come from

both of the behaviours described above.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT?

Effective worming is a vital part of giving

young horses a healthy start. We’d

planned to worm Maverick at four

anyway and he was given a single dose

of fenbendazole, a very safe wormer for

youngsters. We continued to worm him

every four - six weeks alternating

between pyrantel and fenbendazole

until he was six months old. He’s now

gone on to a schedule of testing every

eight weeks and being wormed

accordingly. Regular testing has

indicated that the wormers have been

effective but that he has more

susceptibility to parasite infection than

other youngsters in the same field. Like

his mother, Maverick is potentially one

of the 20% of horses that carries 80% of

the worm burden in the herd. As a result

he will need more regular testing and

treatment to monitor this.

Worm egg counts in the lab

TAKEAWAY MESSAGES

Foals are especially vulnerable to

parasite infection and benefit from

proactive treatment up to six months of

age. The lifecycle of some small redworm

species can be as short as four weeks

Worm egg counting of foals is beneficial

due to increasing wormer resistance

Some horses are naturally more prone to

parasite infection due to their natural

immune response, behaviour and

genetics.
