Episode 1 features an equine nutritionist’s thoughts on common hay and feed concerns.
EQUUS, a trusted brand in the equine industry for 45 years, recently announced the debut of its new “Farm Calls” podcast, brought to you in 2022 by Farnam—Your Partner in Horse Care.
Designed to complement EQUUS’ successful “Barn Stories” podcast, “Farm Calls” features conversations with experts on equine health topics that matter. From savvy tips on hoof care and the price of hay to discussions about behavior and veterinary research, each twice-monthly episode offers fresh, useful insights about life with this special animal.
“As a horse owner, I love learning more about taking better care of my horses. In ‘EQUUS Farm Calls,’ I’m able to take our listeners along with me to chat about things that horse owners care about with experts across the country,” says podcast host Kimberly S. Brown, group publisher of the Equine Health Network.
EQUUS Content Director Laurie Prinz sees “Farm Calls” as another opportunity to deliver on the EQUUS mission. “We are always working to develop new and better resources for our audience, so we are delighted to add ‘Farm Calls’ to our lineup,” she says.
In Episode 1 of EQUUS “Farm Calls,” Brown talks to Clair Thunes, PhD, MS, owner of Clarity Equine Nutrition in Arizona, about hay and feed issues. Always a concern among owners, this topic is hotter than ever in the wake of last year’s droughts, floods and wildfires.
Thunes, who is both a nutritionist and a horse owner, specializes in creating individual feeding programs for a wide range of equines. Visit https://soundcloud.com/farm-calls/episode-1-hay-and-feed-concerns or tune in on your favorite podcast platform to learn more.
