The underweight horse can have just as much difficulty maintaining a normal weight as the overweight horse. If you have a "Hard Keeper," you know that no matter what you try, your horse still has difficulty gaining weight and maintaining a healthy weight. Why is this? It could be simply due to a fast metabolic rate, or the weight loss reason may be far more complex.
Spend an evening with Dr. Getty and learn what you can do to help your horse's weight improve. You'll be able to send in your questions in advance -- they will be answered during the teleseminar. Even if you cannot be there during the designated time, you'll be able to have your pre-submitted questions answered and listen to the full recorded event at a later date of your choosing.
Details: Thursday, March 15, 8:00-9:30pm Eastern (7pm Central; 6pm Mountain; 5pm Pacific)
Cost: $15 (your long distance charges may apply depending on your phone service)
Note: If the date is inconvenient, you'd rather not attend, or you live in another country, the entire event will be available the next day to for listening or downloading as often as you like.
