They have developed a way to have a mare lactate but not by having a foal at the time, great news for orphan foals!

Interesting.  But 10 days to get the mare to lactate.

A study shows whip use does not really improve a horses speed or steering in races

Research on sesamoid bones in TB’s, surprisingly they don’t know much and now studying the breeds development.

Good article.  I've never read much about the sesamoids and that's odd as these fractures happen a lot.  Marty was retired due to a fractured sesamoid.  Luckily he had a breeder/owner who took him back to the farm to heal for a year.
