XII. Horse Management.

Agriculture," "Making Money on
the Farm." Ltc.
Copyright, 10O9, by American Pre,,
THE horse stable, like the com
stable, should be well vontl
lated and have plenty of light
If the lloors are of cement they
should bo well bedded as n protection
both to the tloor utul to the horses'
feet. A fulse floor of plnulc Is often
used over the ceuicut tloor.
The stall partitions should be made
especially strong to keep tho horses
from kicking one another. Two by
fours set flatwise up to about four anil
a half feet hi height, with n heavy
ready made wire partition above that

make a neat, durable nnd not overex
pensive partition. The length of the
stall should be about nine feet ten
Inches from tho manger back. The
floor should slope slightly buck to the
gutter. Chutes from which the hay
enn be pitched from the mow directly
into the manger are a great conven
ience and nid In keeping the barn
One or more box stalls should be pro
vided for the use of the mares at par
turition time. They are convenient for
sick horses nt anj time nnd are almost
n necessity If a stallion Is kept. A
small room should be provided near
the unrtica In which the harness can
be hung. The ammonia from the ma
nure is very destructive to leather.
Besides this, when the harness hangs
directly behind the horses it Is occa
sionally kicked down and trampled on.
the colts get tangled in It. nnd It
causes trouble generally.
The young horses do not need nn
expensive shelter. Horses stand cold
weather better than any other clnss of
stock. The most they need Is a good
shed with u tight roof and kept well
bedded. They can run on the pasture
In winter ns well as In summer If part
of the grass has been allowed fo grow
up during the fall. One of the greatest
objections to letting colts run in this
manlier is tho liability to wire cuts.
Where the pasture Is fenced with barb
ed wire, especially If tho fence Is not
kept In first class repair at all times,
wire cm are Inevitable. The loss on
one or two colts Is enough to pny for
putting n good woven wire fence, like
that described In article 1. around the
entire horse pasture.
Three years Ih usually tho best age
to breed mares for the first time.
Where they are very large for their
age breeding nt two years 1r an advan
tage, us It broadens them out nnd at
the same time gives them more grace
and symmetry. In this cane, however,
they should not lie bred the following
year, so that they may have an oppor
tunity to complete their growth.
It Is best to so manage the breeding
that the colts will come at different
times, so thnt only one of the mares
will be out of use at n time. The colts
should come at times of the year when
the work Is slack, as far as can be ar
There Is no better feed for mares or
for horses of any kind than oats. In
addition to their high feeding value,
they seem to have a stimulating ef
fect, keeping the animals In better
spirits than any other Mud of feed.
j Oats are usually too expensive to be
fed exclusively, however. There Is
p.'li.ibly no better ration for draft
' i.n.-xes than one part bran, two parts
; nrn and three parts oats.
Ground barley may be used In place
of the corn. If oats are exceptionally
high two parts Instead of three may
be used. A handful of ollmeal once
a week In th winter will add to the
thrift of the aultnuN. The amount of
the grain mixture fed should vary
from one-half to one and a quarter
pounds to the hundred pounds of live
weight per day. The first amount Is
about right for Idle horses, while the
latter Is for animals at hard work or
nursing a foal.
Do not feed too much bay to work
horses. It makes them paunchy and
listless. A horse has a comparatively
fiinnll stomach nnd when at work needs
most of the room there for his grnln.
From three-quarters to a pound of
good clover or timothy liny or n mix
ture of the two per hundredweight Is
vlenty when nt work. In the winter
he can use more roughage and les
grain. Never feed bort.es dusty hay
or straw, as it will rum their wind.
Horses should tunc plenty ot water.
They will stand the work a great deal
better In warm weather if they arc
given water In tho middle of the fore
noon nnd afternoon. If they are to be
kept nt work they may ho gUen all
the water they want, but onto should
be taken not to till a warm horse up
with cold water and thou let him stand
and cool oil' rupldl.x.
It Is an excellent plan to have n
yard near the barn Into which tin
horses can be turned after they lime
had their supper. They can roll ami
drink nnd. it the yard Is huge enough
find a little grass. The. will feet a
great deal better In the morning than
if kept In the hum all night.
Care at Foaling Time.
The ninre may be safely worked up
to within ten day: of foaling. In tact,
light work Is better for her than Idle
ness would he. A mare heaxy 111 fo.i'
should not be required to hack, how
ever, nor to exert herself too much In
pulling heavy loads. Working In the
mud Is also bad for her aud If kept up
for any length of time Is likely to
The suroRt Indication of the np
proach of foaling time Is tho appear
ance of wax on tho teats, which oc
curs ubout three days before parturl
tlon. At this 1 1 1110 the feed should be
reduced in amount and n warm bran
mash given at night. The nddltlon of
a little ollmeal will clean out the In
testines and makes foaling easy. For
several days previous to foaling the
ninre should be kept In a box stall, so
that she may become accustomed to
the now locntlon. Some one should bo
at hand when the colt is born to give
assistance If neccssnry. Do not both
er tho mare unless It Is absolutely nec
As soon ns the colt to born the nnvel
ord should bo tied tightly, about two
Inches from the body, with a Btrlng
which has been sonked In some disin
fecting solution. The cord should be
cut Just below the point where It Is
tied nnd the remaining portion wet
with some of tho disinfecting solution.
The udder of tho mare should also be
washed with tho same solution. At
tention to these details will do much
to prevent the attack of scours and.
Joint III which so often proves faint
to young colts.
Do uot be In too big u hurry to get
the inure on feed after foaling. A lit
tle laxative feed for tho first day or
two after foaling Is all she needs. In
pasture sonsou the mare ami colt tnrij
be turned out on grass for a few days,
gradually Increasing the grain ration
at the same time. In case work Is
picsslng tho mare may bo put to work
lu two or three days after foaling, but
two precautious must be strictly ad
hered to first, do not nllow the colt
to follow the ninre In the Hold, ex
hausting his puny strength lu lighting
tiles and following his mother up nnd
down the rough furrows; second, do
not allow the colt to suck while the
mare Is very warm. Ho will be hun

Held and anxious to satisfy his appe
tite ni once, but a little wholesome re
straint at this time will tench him a
lesson that he must learn Mime I line
that his master's will Is superior to his
Care of the Colt.
In two or throe weeks the colt will
begin to nibble at the hay lu his moth
er's manger, and If given n Uwl box of
his own out of reach of the other
horses he will sunn loaruto eat oats,

fenced with something besides barbed
wire, he muy be turned out with the
other colts without Ills mother. With
all the grass mid oafs he can eat. lu
addition to his mother's milk, his
growth will be rapid. A colt that
learns to eat well before weaning time
will suffer little check in growth at
The first winter Is u perilous time for
the colt. Too often hi is given the run
of the farm, with little roughage other
than cornstalks and straw aud only a
lory small allowance of grain or none
at all. Many farmers hold up their
hands lu horror at the thought of giv
ing a colt grain every day from the
time ho Is big enough to eat until, he
Is marketed. These same farmers,
howevor. think nothing of feeding their
calves liberally for two or three years
and then selling them for one-third
what the colt will bring nt the same
nge. Size and development count for
more In a horse than In a steer, and
the cost of feed Is smnll compared with
(ho results obtained from liberal feed
ing. Some farmers think that a colt
will get to bo Just so big anyway and
that liberal feeding only hastens tin
process a little. This Is a mistake. A
colt thnt Is stunted when he Is young
will never attain tho size that he would
If properly fed. Additional weight In
a draft horse is worth at least 25 cents
a pound, and It Is a mistake not to
develop the colt to the limit.
