When In Doubt, Turn Out

Researchers have shown that 24-hour-a-day turnout during the early months of a foal’s life is the gold standard for developing a strong, resilient locomotor system. Management approaches in which foals are kept in stalls even for part of the day are less effective in stimulating optimal locomotor tissue strength. This is especially true for the superficial digital flexor tendon (which runs from the back of the knee [or hock] all the way down to the back of the pastern in each limb and acts as a “sling” to support the fetlock to help it bear the animal’s weight) and the suspensory ligament (which runs down the back of each cannon bone). Both structures are frequently injured in equine athletes.
