What Documents are Necessary for
Proof of Equine Ownership?
NAES
You have just purchased a new horse. A check was written, you and the seller shook hands, you briefly spoke about the existence of registration papers and your new horse was loaded into your trailer all ready for you to take home.

WRONG! A transaction like this isn’t safe for either party. First of all the new owner has no proof of ownership. Second, without proof of sale or a transfer of ownership on the horse’s registration papers, the previous owner leaves themselves legally vulnerable if that horse injures anyone or damages anyone’s property. The sale of a horse that safely benefits all parties includes a couple more steps than just a hand shake.

NAES   Get it in writing! A Bill of Sale is the only document that all legal arenas will acknowledge as proof of ownership.

A Bill of Sale does not have to be a lengthy document and can be drafted in one sitting.

Just make sure it contains these four elements...article continues at this link

National Equine Health Plan Could Provide
Early Warning System for Infectious Disease
Each year brings new hopes and new challenges for horse owners. And often times one of the challenges is infectious disease, some treatable, some fatal.

2010 brought an outbreak of equine herpes EHV-1 to Utah which ended up a nationwide problem when 425 horses in 19 states were found to be exposed to the virus.

NAES
2014 saw a 20 horse outbreak in California of Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), which can be passed from one horse to another through the reuse of syringes and needles, and a West Nile Encephalitis (WNE) outbreak across 32 states.

NAES And 2015 brought the state of Arizona a Vesicular Stomatitis outbreak as well as a delay to phase two of the 2015 Equine Study due to a nationwide outbreak of HPAI or bird flu...

(please read 3rd Q 2015 NAES newsletter for information on the 2015 Equine Study, phase two as been postponed until Spring/Summer of 2016).

There are steps and regulations in place to help the spread of disease such as a 60 day quarantine period for horses brought into the country from foreign nations...article continues at this link

A Continued Threat to the Resources of Trail Riders
NAES
Equestrian trail riders made their voices heard this summer when the Senate began their debate of the new Drive Act.

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) proposed an amendment to the act that would have eliminated the Transportation Alternatives Program which includes the Recreational Trails Program (RTP).The RTP provides funds to individual states in order to help them develop and maintain recreational trails and trail related facilities on state, federal and private lands.

NAES
These trail uses include equestrian as well as hiking, bicycling, in-line skating, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, off-road motorcycling and all-terrain vehicles.

One of the purposes behind the RTP is to encourage healthy outdoor recreation.

Funding for the RTP comes from the Federal Highway Trust Fund.

This fund applies a “user-pay/user benefit” philosophy by returning money accrued from taxes on fuel used for non-highway recreation vehicles back to each state. This means non-motorized recreational trail users benefit from the taxes that motorized recreational users pay. However, the elimination of the RTP would equally affect all users of the trail systems...article continues at this link

Rating Horses Can Be Less Subjective
Rating and judging horses can seem like a very subjective process, dependent upon the individual judge or appraiser.

But in some arenas standards have been set to help create a more balanced process for judging horses.

One of these arenas includes Koninklijk Warmbloed Paardenstamboek Nederland translated into Royal Warmblood Studbook of the Netherlands – North America (KWPN-NA).

NAES

This studbook registry for Warmbloods, called the keuring, is held each September in the United States and Canada. Warmbloods include middle weight horse types/breeds distinguished from “cold bloods” like heavy draft horses and “hot bloods” like Thoroughbreds and Arabians.

The KWPN-NA looks at foals, yearlings and two-year-olds and mature horses ages 3-7 years-old. Evaluations are performed by a judging committee led by a KWPN inspector. Foals, yearlings and two-year-olds follow the same protocol.

First the horses are individually stood up in front of the judging committee, then they will walk and then trot in a clockwise direction around the arena.

Lastly they are stood up in front of the committee again, this time facing the opposite direction from the first showing....article continues at this link

-About NAES
Spotlight: J Brent Rollins DVM
NAES' Spotlight
Dr Rollins grew up in Phoenix, attending Osborne grade school, Washington High School and Arizona State University.

He first became interested in veterinary medicine growing up with his father Lyman who was a thoroughbred horse trainer and his brother Bradley who was a professional jockey. He started on the end of a pitchfork and ended up with a trainer's license before Vet School.

He, many times, was called upon to help the veterinarians who worked on Lyman's horses. His pre-veterinary training was at Arizona State University followed by four years at the veterinary school at Colorado State University.

Dr. Rollins graduated with high distinction and a ranking of second in his veterinary class. He was a member of phi zeta and Phi Kappa phi. After receiving his DVM, he served for three years as a captain in the US Army at Fort Detrick, Frederick, MD doing research on infectious diseases. After the service in 1970, Dr. Rollins completed an Equine Internship at the University of California, Davis Veterinary Teaching Hospital...More about Dr. Rollins on our website

Commentary
The actions and contributions to the welfare of animals is the focus of my commentary. I recently learned about the work of Vet Ranch, based in Boerne, Texas. This team of volunteer veterinarians provides medical treatment to homeless animals.

The animals are rehabilitated so that they are able to be adopted. Vet Ranch works closely with many animal rescues and shelters to decrease the number of animals that are euthanized due to treatable and/or curable conditions.
NAES' Spotlight

The medical treatment for all Vet Ranch patients are funded completely by donations made to Vet Ranch, Inc. from people all over the world.

Once the patient is healthy enough, the rescue group helps to find a foster or a forever home. All patients are spayed or neutered, caught up on vaccinations and started on parasite and heartworm preventatives before being released.
