**Neglect of horses is all-too-common.

While it is sometimes done on purpose it is often done out of ignorance or because owners are unaware of the financial commitment that a horse requires. Proper feeding of horses is specialized knowledge that a lot of people lack, and a horses feed needs change throughout their lives. Cutting costs on horse feed can frequently lead to a horse that is not getting the nutrition it needs. Sometimes horses are purposely under-fed to make them easier to handle since they are not at full physical strength. 

HORSE FACT! Dehydration is one of the most common problems with horses. Horses have a slower thirst response than humans and dehydration further supresses a horse’s thirst center. This is more problematic in old horses, which is partly what led to Red’s dehydration. Resolving can take specialized knowledge, as suggested in the adage “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.”

HORSE FACT! Just like humans, some older horses have more trouble keeping weight on and may require a special diet, including more fat and protein, more easily-digestible and easier-to-chew foods. A horse owner that is not aware of this, or who lacks knowledge about caring for an older horse in general, may not understand that significant weight loss is not normal and that it can be reversed with changes to their feed.
