Rossdales Foal Care Course

Rossdales Foal Care Course

13th, 14th & 15th January 2016 The British Racing School, Newmarket

Rossdales held their eighth three-day Foal Care Course from 13th–15th January 2016 at the British Racing School. The 68 delegates who attended from 14 countries gave high praise in their post-course questionnaires for the programme, speakers’ presentations and organisation and it was clear from the atmosphere throughout that a good time was had by all.

Emily Haggett, one of Rossdales Foal Care specialists organised the programme and edited the 179 page spiral-bound book of lecture notes. International expert speakers were Gary Magdesian (University of California, Davis, USA) and Peter Morrissey (Rood & Riddle, Kentucky, USA). Alex Dugdale (University of Liverpool), Jaqui Matthews (Moredun Research Institute, Scotland) and Catherine Dunnett (Independent Equine Nutrition, Newmarket) complimented the eleven Rossdales speakers. The 26 presentations addressed normality and abnormality from late foetal life, through transition to extrauterine life and then the neonatal period to the younger and older foal. A new innovation was the introduction of five well-received 20-minute rotating case-based interactive sessions held at Rossdales Equine Hospital on the second afternoon. There were lively discussions throughout all three days.

Delegates enjoyed the excellent catering at the British Racing School, an interesting evening with supper at the National Horseracing Museum and dinner and a tour of the Jockey Club Rooms.

Rossdales are grateful to MSD Animal Health for main sponsorship of this course, to Eclipse Veterinary Software for sponsorship of case-based interactive sessions, to BCF Technology, Direct Medical Supplies, Eclipse Software, Equine Reproductive Supplies, Freedom Health (Succeed), MAI Animal Health, MSD Animal Health and Twemlows Stud Farm for supporting the trades’ exhibition.
