RECOGNIZING RHODOCOCCUS

Foals can contract a severe respiratory disease caused by a bacterium called . The bacteria live in the soil, and, if ingested in the first few days of life, create problems when the foal is several months old. Often clinical signs develop in the summer when it gets hot, and an infected foal will begin panting. The disease causes abscesses to form in the lungs and, if not treated aggressively, could be a fatal infection. If you suspect Rhodococcus, contact your primary care veterinarian for treatment.

I was sent the link to this article that was done in 2017. "Doc" has gone on to International fame by being ridden by his AA owner, Maria Klementiva. Togather they have competed at some of the most prestigious CDIs in Europe. They have won the "Russis Cup" twice for the top Grand Prix horse in RUssia. In 2021, they were selected to compete at the Tokyo Olympics but due to a minor injury, did not travel. I am so proud of this stallion and his owner!
Doc has had several Elite daughters and three licensed sons, Debonair MF, Dionysus MF and Doc Dancer MF

I do have a direct licensed son of his that is available for your consideration.

- The story of Doctor Wendell MF is one of a dream and an ambitious goal to breed a Grand Prix stallion. Read Maryanna Haymon’s story from the YourDressage archives here: https://yourdressage.org/2022/02/03/all-thanks-to-the-doctor/

01/20/2022

This article and opinion are spot on. I have always tried to stay true to my vision- a Grand Prix horse that an AA can ride but the Pro really wants for themselves.
I do not have people lining up to buy my horses though. I have them priced at what they are worth and near to what the IRS will accept as a good business. ( I really do not need or want to hear " You have to sell at what the buyeris willing to pay" I will hold my horses that are priced at $45,000 at 3 until they are priced at $150,000 at 6)

Marydell Farm has produced numerous International horses, we have been breeding since 1990. There have been CDI winners, Nation Cup members, an Olympic team horse for another country that every American who tried him said he was too "normal". I have used the same bloodlines since 2000 when we saw the quality those lines consistantly produced. We have triedoutcrosses- some worked and some did not.

The MOST imprtant thing is to remain true to your vision

Last summer I was trying to educate my dad about the new ways of the west. How we needed to breed to this, buy that, do this to keep up with the new market. He’d nod his head and say “sure”. So I drug him to a couple horse sales to show him exactly what we needed to do. Big time studs bred to high powered mares.

We got there and looked the horses over and he didn’t say much. And to my dismay the sale didn’t go as I planned.

On our drive home I asked him what he thought went wrong, in theory, on paper, both of those sales should have been super hot.

His response, there was no program. It was strictly papers to papers without much thought past that.

I’ve learned a lot from him about sticking to your guns and staying true to your roots. I’ve jumped from train to train trying to produce what the market wants, while he’s stayed true to what he believes is right in his eyes of a strong, intelligent, versatile horse.

We’re a ranch family. What’s most important to us is a strong build, athleticism, and a brain.

There are always going to be some crosses that don’t work as well as others, but the predictably my dad has from riding the same lines, generation after generation, has given him an advantage. We strive for those things and Tigh, over the past 50+ years, does not waver or compromise, he is a true “breeder”.

“Breeders and Raisers”
Written by Ralph W. Nemeth

Horse raisers flourish, but the true breeder stays rare. The horse raiser is flawless in his faith to the dollar, and in his worship of public opinion. He jumps anxiously, or crawls, according to what he can afford, on every bloodline bandwagon that comes by.

The breeder is an unshakable horseman. He has a natural eye that is not fooled by color or flesh, and in the end he is faithful only to his own imagination. The breeder may be happy with the product of a mating, but he knows if he is completely satisfied he is not looking close enough. He is always not quite sure, a calculated guesser. He knows there is always one that can run faster, jump higher, move freer, stop harder or hold up longer- and he thinks he knows where this one might be.

In a period of time long enough to improve a strain of horses- say 20 years- the public will change its mind a half-dozen times. The horse raiser changes his ideas to keep up with the public opinion. He improves nothing, develops nothing. Unless very wealthy, he is forced to buy mediocre horses of a popular strain at an inflated price.

During these 20 years the horse breeder- slowly, stubbornly- improves his horses, getting a lot of pleasure from the process. If his eye and imagination are good, he develops an outstanding horse of its type. Or, through the same eye and judgment, he purchases a horse, a sleeper, and later he'll be called lucky.
So it is, usually, that the horse breeder ends up getting what the horse raiser always wanted- people at the barn door.”

Thisis something that I live with within my own body and is a process to think about when you, or your horse, are having issues within any group of muscles

It's never just “tight hamstrings”

Often when we think of a muscle, we imagine a specifically shaped part of the body, in a certain anatomical location, which functions to contribute towards the movement of the organism as a whole.

In the anatomy books, muscles are classified with relation to the relationship between their attachments to the body; their origin and insertion. For example, the hamstrings are classified as a retractor of the hindlimb; contraction pulls the insertion of the hamstrings on the distal femur and tibia, towards the origin in the pelvis, which in turn draws the limb backwards in the retraction phase of the stride.

However, the hamstrings are not the only muscle which act to retract the hindlimb; the middle gluteal also plays an integral role. When we consider the biomechanics of the body as a whole, we see that muscles often act as part of groups.

Moreover, muscles can belong to more than one group. The semitendinosus, which is part of the hamstring group (along with the semimembranosus and biceps femoris) and the hindlimb retractor muscle group, also acts as part of the hindlimb adductor group which functions to bring the leg towards the midline (inwards).

To further complicate things, the middle gluteal muscle, which is also part of the hindlimb retractor group, acts as a hindlimb abductor which brings the leg away from the midline (outwards). Both the semitendinosus and middle gluteal muscles are hindlimb retractors, yet when we consider their actions within the sagittal plane of the body they perform opposing actions.

Each action has a consequence, and as such each muscle group has an opposing muscle group, whose role is to perform the exact opposite action to balance the forces within the body and control movement. In the same way that we have agonist and antagonist pairs of muscles (ie the biceps brachii and triceps brachii muscles which act to bring your arm up and down), muscle groups have agonistic and antagonistic functions. The antagonists of the hindlimb retractors are the hindlimb protractors, which advance the hindlimb forwards in the swing phase of the stride.

So why is this important for us to know?

Because tension in a muscle will never only influence that muscle individually.

Tightness, spasm or atrophy (dysfunction) of an individual muscle will mean that its role within the muscle group as a whole will be impaired. As such, the other muscles within the group will have to take up a greater role in performing the function of the group, ie retracting the hindleg. This will increase their risk of fatigue.

Consequently, as the agonistic group begins to weaken, the synergy between the agonistic (hindlimb retractors) and antagonistic groups (hindlimb protractors) will become unbalanced. This will result in uneven forces being exerted on other anatomical structures of the body; the tendons, ligaments and joints. Furthermore, in the case of the hamstrings not only will protraction/retraction be affected, but also abduction/adduction.

These effects will not just be isolated locally to the hindlimb...

Each muscle is encased by the fascial network which expands across the entire body, connecting each muscle to their neighbours and globally linking each and every part of the body together into one unit. Often muscle origins and insertions are not as discrete as they are depicted in the anatomy books, thus the principle that muscles act alone within the body to perform a singular role has been challenged.

Through the work of both human and equine anatomists, it has been identified that muscles act within chains, known as myofascial chains/meridians/pathways, which span across the body linking certain muscles together within a pathway. Meaning that dysfunction within one muscle will not only have local effects to that region of the body, but will have further reaching global impacts across the body as a whole.

The hamstrings are part of the Superficial Back Line myofascial chain, which starts at the back of each hind hoof, then extends through the caudal muscles of the hindlimb, over the muscles of the croup, and through long back muscles, before each side then passes under the shoulder blade through the neck and over the poll to through the face to the muscles of the jaw (see the blue line).

Through this chain, we can see how dysfunction in the hindlimb can travel through the body to have a significant influence to the horse's back, neck, across the poll, and also extending to influencing the acceptance of the bit.

Conversely, myofascial chains work in both directions; tension in the hamstring group may not be due to dysfunction of the muscle itself, but may be as a result of issues elsewhere in the dorsal chain. For example, this may stem from hypertonicity and spasm through the epaxial muscle group (back) or of the dorsal cervical region (neck), which in turn may relate to a poorly fitting bridle or saddle.

And so we see that it is never just “tight hamstrings”. It is important to consider the posture of the horse as a whole, and not just fixate on tension in one muscle and how to fix it. Often by addressing the whole posture and mechanics of the horse, we will see the resolution of dysfunction in particular muscles as the body functions in improved balance.

Or...it might just be that your horse has been larking around in a wet slippery field the day before and has strained his hamstrings. It is always about how the horse presents on the day, and addressing these issues early on can intercept the cycle of compensation before it becomes a whole body issue. Listen to your horse and trust your therapist’s palpation and clinical reasoning to best address your horse 🐎

So very proud of Serendwe MF (Sir Donnerhall I/ EM Duet/ Don Principe) and Alice Tarjan

The 2021 US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan® featured the establishment and presentation of two new perpetual trophies. The Top Hat Perpetual Trophy, presented by Janet Foy, recognizes the horse and rider combination with the highest freestyle and non-freestyle average score at the same level, and the Verne Batchelder Memorial Trophy, presented by River House Hanoverians is awarded to the FEI highest scoring, US-bred horse. We are so fortunate to be able to recognize these combinations and horses through the generous support of those like Janet and River House Hanoverians.

Congratulations to Alice Tarjan and Serenade MF!

It’s the biggest Finals EVER!!! With a 50% increase in horses & a whopping 55% increase in rides since the last US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan®, it proves that post-pandemic dressage is back, bigger, & better than ever!

Rain clouds couldn’t stop the action on Day 1, where Alice Tarjan & 9-year-old Hanoverian mare Serenade MF proved untouchable in Intermediate II Adult Amateur Championship. Aboard a horse she has known since he was a foal, defending champion Heather Mason held off all-comers aboard 16-year-old Oldenburg/Holsteiner gelding RTF Lincoln in the Intermediate II Open Championship.

On Monday, September 9, we attended the Marydell Farm American Hanoverian Society Inspection hosted by Maryanna Haymon and presented our June 22, 2019 C**t, Pikko Del Esperando (Pikko Del Cerro/Contucci/Vienna Waltz) for evaluation. Momma and baby were skillfully presented by King Santacruz, we are thankful for his help. It is our goal to produce foals with the temperament and ability to progress to the FEI levels. With that in mind we are very encouraged by many of Inspector Verne Batchelder's comments:
"I think we have a very good performance prospect here, very level headed, good basic conformation...
He is correct, he has good conformation, very very typey in the neck...
today he shows great temperament, very easy to handle. The walk has big overstride...
A very, very good and interesting foal. In three years we would like to see him under saddle."
Of course, none of this would be possible without the tireless work and support of Brian Glenn, the bathing and photography skills of Devan Kundmueller and the handling assistance of Justine Kundmueller. Thank you team NDSH!
I'm pleased to report that my mare, SF Dixie Chick, had a lovely c**t by Debonair MF this past Wednesday at 11:55pm at the New Bolton Center! Both mom and son are doing well. New Bolton staff report that he's quite smart and a VERY healthy eater, having found the milk bar quite quickly, as evidenced by his off-the-charts IgG value of over 2000 mg/dL!!! At a very young age, he is already showing a strong interest in people, coming over to say hello and allowing people to give him a little rubdown. Pictures to come as soon as I figure out how to add them.
Only a little while to go before the Debonair MF c**t arrives!! Probably a week or so out. C**t is getting big and sassy - kicking and ready to arrive soon!
thank you to Marydell Farms for testing your stallions for WFFS. you have a wonderful breeding program and amazing horses. you have produced many outstanding athletes and have done NA breeding proud over the years!
Congratulations on the recent article and cover photo of "Prince". You're dedication is admirable!
