At the heart of every equine nutrition and exercise physiology study conducted at Kentucky Equine Research (KER) are the research horses. Each of these horses has contributed to the volume of data that KER has amassed over the last 25 years, much of which has changed the way modern horses are nutritionally managed. Not surprisngly, certain research horses endear themselves to the people that work with them most closely, the research farm staff.
For the first-ever Favorite Research Horse Contest, the research farm staff has narrowed the field to three outstanding horses. Now we need your help in choosing the winner. Here’s a brief bio of each candidate. Go to the Kentucky Equine Research Facebook page to vote.
