Welcome to American Horse Talk!

Our mission is simple: we want to connect people who love our country and have a connection to horses with businesses, stories and other websites who have these things in common. It all started with Alabama Horse Talk, then grew into Southern Horse Talk, (which is still alive and well, please visit) and now we are very excited to present AMERICAN HORSE TALK.

We are looking for stories to share, events to promote and businesses to help grow. It's easy to get started, just click on one of the links below.

We have so many more things in store, so be sure and bookmark this site and join us on social media!

We are always talking about something - join the official American Horse Talk Group and get in on the conversation!

You could win something, too!

Did you know?Did you know fall grass could be just as dangerous as spring grass for a laminitis-prone horse?

Most horse owners know they should be wary of lush spring grass, which produces large amounts of sugary substances to give the pasture energy to grow. What you may not know, is that fall grass also accumulates high levels of soluble sugars and carbohydrates, due to the combination of warm days and cool nights, as well as increased precipitations.
For horses at higher risk of developing laminitis, this refreshed grass may be enough to push them over the edge.

While the exact mechanisms by which the feet are damaged due to laminitis remain a mystery, certain precipitating events can produce the condition. Although laminitis occurs in the feet, the underlying cause is often a disturbance elsewhere in the horse's body (like overfeeding).
By learning more about this condition, you may be able to minimize the risks of laminitis in your horse or control the long-term damage if it does occur.

Learn more about laminitis on our website at aaep.org/horsehealth/laminitis-prevention-treatment and, as always, contact your veterinarian for more information and advice tailored to your horse's individual situation.
