"At Mustad, we believe in the importance of improving hoof-care knowledge and skills for horse owners, horse shoers and veterinarians,” said Carlos Lara, president of MUSTAD USA. “What Rockin' Horse is doing is very unique. It has taken the lead in educating the equine public on the role the farrier plays in the performance horse industry, and in the case of the WCBC show, the impact blacksmithing has had in the building of America. We are very pleased to offer our continued support for their efforts."

"Through this first-ever televised blacksmithing competition we can show viewers the work and art of the blacksmith, a trade that has turned the hands of time for centuries and today serves as the foundation to the multi-billion dollar performance horse industry,” said Susan Kayne, creator and producer of the show.

Rockin' Horse Productions, the exclusive US media rights holder to the World Championship Blacksmiths' Competition (WCBC), and RFD-TV have combined forces to broadcast the first-ever televised presentation of this highly acclaimed global sporting event.

The competition will air on RFD-TV the first two weeks of March 2006 as a two-part series presented by the worldwide leaders in hoofcare, MUSTAD, St. Croix Forge, and Capewell Horsenails.

Viewers will be able to see the heart-pounding, head-to-head battle to be the best in the world of blacksmithing as 80 experts from all over the world, as far away as Australia, Ireland, and the United Arab Emirate, compete for top honor. The top blacksmiths battle head-to-head, as they are tested on a variety of skills to expose their talents. Ranging from forging, horseshoeing, and team events, judges decide who deserves to earn the coveted title of  World Champion.

Is the foal currently ill or has the foal recently recovered from an illness? If the answer is yes to either of these, you should wait until the foal is healthy before proceeding.
Does the foal remain close to the dam at all times and appear to panic when separated? Before weaning, foals should be showing definite signs of independence by associating freely with other foals without being too concerned about the location of the dam.
Do you have another foal of similar age? Misery loves company. Regardless of the method used, having company will make things go more smoothly. It is best to group foals that have been raised together in order to reduce the risk of exposing the foal to new diseases during this time.

As for the question of how, there are two basic approaches, abrupt and gradual. Some experts, who would liken weaning to pulling tape from skin, will tell you that short-term stress is better than subjecting foals to the more prolonged stress experienced using a gradual method. For others, the reduced stress offered by gradual weaning methods seems best, regardless of its duration. It’s a decision you’ll have to make.

It tears at your heartstrings, but if you have a foal around, sooner or later you will need to make some decisions regarding weaning. When you should wean and how you should go about it?
The main concerns for the timing and method of weaning are stress and an accompanying increased probability for illness or injury. While there is some disagreement among experts just how the deed is to be done, all agree that the foals should be eating comfortably on their own from a creep feeder before weaning and most consider it best to wean between 4 and 5 months of age if possible. Here are some questions you may want to ask yourself while deciding when you should wean.

World-wide concern for the recovery of Derby-winner Barbaro has sparked increased interest in the need for more funding for equine research into laminitis, according to the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation, Inc.
Members of the AAEP have identified laminitis as a disease with a high priority for future equine research. To advance this effort, the AAEP Foundation has developed an informative paper on the challenges of solving the laminitis puzzle and the need for increased research funding. Rustin M. Moore, DVM, a member of the AAEP and the director of the Louisiana State University Equine Health Studies Program, is the author.
