Management of the Horse.
In our remarks on this snl>jeet, Inst montli,
we spoke of the iinjKWftiiH't* or tlio elennliness
nnd ventilation of staLles. Hardly less impor
tant is the rlennlinejw of tlie horse himself.—
'Flint the nnininl prefers n neat skin to n dirty
one, is manifest fiotn his treatment of himself
when out to pns'nre. Hy niM>ing ngniiist
fences and trees and ly rolling on the grass,
he keeps his hair in tolerable neatness ; it is i
often more tidy and glossy than when under
the care of the groomsman He cannot curry
and brash himself to any amount in the stable
hence lie is obliged to lie down in whatever
filth his untidy owner suffers to remain beneath
A stabled horse should be cleaned every day. j
And this, not only for the sake of the neatness
itself, but for the benefit of the friction to the i
horse's health Many stabled horses are not J
worked or exercised regularly, and they conse
quently need to have their skin rubbed daily in I
order to open the pores, and to promote a good I
circulation of the blood to the extremities.— ;
This begets a gentle heat and perspiration, and
produces a glossy coat of hair. It is not a
neat practice to groom a horse in his stall.— |
M nch of the dirt ami dust rubbed out of his
hair, falls back upon him or settles on tin* sides
of his stall and in hi 3 monger. The horse
should lie taken into some open, airy place in
the barn near the door, or even out of doors |
i bitter, so that the scurf and dust may blow
nWay, and the horse himself enjoy the benefit
of exposure to the fresh air This is also a
much ueater method for the groomsman him
Is not the currycomb used with more se
verity than either needful or humane ? Some
kinds of dirt adhere so obstinately to the skin,
that this implement must lie used with some
degree of harshness to remove them. Hut, as
a general rule, it should be used lightly, es
pecially on the legs and other tender parts of
the Iwxly. Some horses, too, arc very thin
skinned and sensitive, and must lie treated ac
cordingly. After the currycomb lias been
gently passed over the surface, nothing is bet
ter than rubbing with a large wisp of pen straw.
Hub, from one extremity of the animal to the
other. This may be followed by the ordinary
brush or a hair-cloth. When this is done, i'
Is a good plan to give the legs a good rubbing
with the hand. It brings down swellings,
softens stiffnesses, aud makes the legs warm
2. Exercise. —Farm horses seldom need more
exercise than they get in the ordinary labors
of the farm. Their work is regular, and not
exhausting. Like the fanner himself, thev have
enough to do to promote their health, without
being at one time enervated by idleness, and at
another overcome by excessive labors. It is
the horse of the mechanic, merchant, editor,
minister and lawyer, who often needs artificial
exercise. Sometimes, lie stands idle in his sta
ble for days aud weeks in succession, and then
is worked or driven to the top of his strength,
for the same length of time. His food is often
continued the same iu kind and amount whether
at work or resting. No horse can lie treated
so, without more or less injury. Hy standing
idle, lie is quite sure to contract the 'scratches,'
or fever, or some of the many diseases of feet
and legs. Hy being hard driven after idleness,
he is quite sure to tret inflammation of the lungs
or of the feet. The horse, like his master,
needs daily exercise. The amount may vary,
from one hour to four, witiiout any damage.—
This exercise will keep up his digestion and his
npjK'tite, preserve the health of his lungs, eyes
feet, limbs, and, in short, of his whole system.
Then, when circumstances require extra labor,
he can jierform it with comparative ease, and
without injury to himself.
3. Fowl. —For the horse roaming iu the pn
tnre, little need be said about his food or drink.
The nourishment which nature provides for him
there, is eminently natural. Hut most horses
are contined to the stall a part of the year,
nnd a great number the year through. The
great end to be aimed at in feeding a stabled
horse is, to give him such food and in such
quantities as will keep liiin in good flesh,and at
the same time maintain Ids general health. It
is not enough to give him nourishing and hearty
food : he must have such as will digest well
and will not favor the contraction of any dis
ease. Moreover, a working horse must be fed
differently from r carrriage-horsc, and a trot
ting horse or racer different from either. Ob
servation and experience will teach more on
this point than can be learned from books.
The old practice of allowing a horse to stand
day nnd night, before a ruck or manger full of
hay, is coming to be discarded. It has been
found that in this way, horses distend their
atomachs by over-eating, aud besides, waste a
good deal of hay by pulling it from the rack,
picking out the sweetest stalks and throwing
under their feet. When hay is fed, it shedud
only be at intervals, and in small quantities.—
It is an excellent plan to*moisten it with water
having a little salt iu it, which makes it more
palatable and more wholesome. Ilay is in its
first condition for fodder in about ten months
or a year. It has then gone through the pro
cess of fermentation and its sweet and nutri
tious properties arc fully developed.
Cut feed is considered by many the best form
in which hay or straw can be given to horses.
If chopped fine and mixed with grain or meal
little or nothing is wasted, and the food is
quickly disposed of. This last item is one of
considerable importance for hard working hor
ses. Hy limiting their food ut one time—say,
at night, after a day's work—to a manger fuli
of good cut-feed aud grain, as soon as this
eaten, they can lie down and rest ; whereas,
by the old method of feeding grain, and a rack
full of hay, much time is spent in eating,
which should have been given to resting.—
There is a gain of at least two hours' rest
Heaus and jreas are fed to horses, in England
more commonly than in this country. When
well crushed, they are excellent for hard work
ed horses ; but being quite heating and stim
ulating, they should be mixed with a good deal
Shorts, or mill feed is a good diet for the
laboring horse. Mixed in the manger with
chopped straw, and well moistened with water,
a horse will thrive upon it, while doing at the
same time a good deal of daily drudgery.—
Carriage horses, used only at intervals, should
have their shorts mixed with a greater propor
tion of bran than is common for the team
I'robably no article of food is preferable, all
th ugs considered, to oats. They contain 743
parts of nutritive matter out of 1000 parts ;
winch scent? to be an excellent proportion for
ine food of this animal. They appear to pos
sess, also, an enlivening and invigorating pro
perty which no other food contains.
