Spinnaker Farm Equine Veterinary Clinic WA

Spinnaker Farm Equine Veterinary Clinic

Clinic in Washington - Spinnaker Equine Veterinary Clinic

Born, raised, and educated in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Heather Wenzell developed a passion for the equine industry during her preteen years when she involved herself in three-day eventing and show-jumping. Her continued success at horse shows throughout North America ultimately led to her specializing in show-jumping and breeding Hanoverian sport horses.

Dr. Wenzell has ridden for a number of years as a Northwest A-Circuit Grand Prix rider, training under three-time Olympian Kevin Freeman, and later under Hap Hansen, a renowned US Grand Prix competitor. She continued to ride at this level while receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Portland. She currently trains and competes under the tutelage of Phillip Cillis of Westwood at Rancho Riding Club in San Diego, California.

In 1997, while continuing to compete throughout the Northwest and California, Dr. Wenzell began veterinary school at Oregon State University. Upon receiving a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine with a focus on equine medicine, surgery, and dentistry in 2001, she received state licensure in Arizona, California, Oregon, and Washington. Years of training and experience working as an associate equine practitioner for practices in both Arizona and California enabled her to move back home to the northwest in June of 2005. Soon after, she opened Spinnaker Farm Equine Veterinary Clinic while living in Lacey, Washington.

Spinnaker Farm Equine Veterinary Clinic is affiliated with the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), and Dr. Wenzell maintains memberships in the USA Equestrian Federation, the Pacific Coast Horse Show Association (PCHA) and the American Hanoverian Society.

Dearest Friends and Family,

It is my great honor and pleasure to unveil my latest philanthropic project – “Triple Crown Winner Montage”.  Inspired by my love and appreciation for the horse racing community, this 20”x30” framed portrait montage of prominent Triple Crown winners Secretariat (1973), Seattle Slew (1977), Affirmed (1978), and American Pharoah (2015) will be presented during the silent auction at this year’s Hats Off to Kentucky’s Horse Industry Day at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington on Saturday July 29th.

As many of you know, the horse industry in Kentucky generates 80,000 – 100,000 direct and indirect jobs and impacts the local economy by an estimated $8 billion dollars. In celebration of the horse, Kentuckians flock to the Kentucky Horse Park on Hats Off Day for a free day of family fun and an opportunity to learn more about the remarkable influence horses have on their great state and worldwide.

Along with a fun-filled day of children’s activities, free pony rides, educational booths, and interactive equine stations, there is the opportunity to see some of the best hunter jumpers and riders in the world display their talents at the Rood & Riddle Kentucky Grand Prix. The Rood & Riddle Kentucky Grand Prix, a challenging show jumping competition between top international horses and riders, is the featured evening entertainment of Hats Off Day and is taking place in the breathtaking outdoor Rolex Stadium.

“Triple Crown Winner Montage” will be auctioned off in the Sponsors’ Tent during the Grand Prix event to benefit the beautiful and meaningful work that my friends at the Kentucky Equine Humane Center and the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation dedicate themselves to year-round. To learn more about this fabulous event and how you can get tickets to the Grand Prix, be sure to visit http://www.hatsoffky.com/grandprix.html .

Tom and I are very excited to be making the trip down to Lexington this weekend. If you’re in the area, do yourself a favor and spend some time down at the Kentucky Horse Park. Hope to see you there!

Speak to you soon,
Joanne

American Quarter Horse

Facts about the American Quarter Horsequarter-horse_0400

HISTORY & ORIGINS: The American Quarter Horse is, in part, uniquely tied to the history of the United States. The breed was first developed in early 17th Century Colonial America. Early colonists bred select horses of Arabian, Turk, and Barb descent that had been previously brought to the New World with those breeds then arriving from England and Ireland. The eventual result was strong, heavily muscled, and compact horse suited to both farm work and colonist-favored short-distance races. As pioneers pushed westward in the 1800s, however, the American Quarter Horse gained new respect. With keen cow sense (or ability to outmaneuver cattle) and a calm disposition, the breed quickly became the preferred companion on the vast cattle ranches that developed across the plains. Today, the American Quarter Horse is known as the world’s most popular breed and is favored for nearly every facet of farm life, competition, show, and recreation.

SIZE: Stands 14.3 to 16.1 hands (57.2″ to 64.4″) high.

horse-15.jpgCOLOR AND MARKINGS:

The American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), which was formed in 1940, recognizes 13 colors. The most prominent color is sorrel (reddish brown). Other colors include bay, black, brown, buckskin, chestnut, dun, red dun, gray (what most people call “white”), grullo, palomino, red roan and blue roan. American Quarter Horses are also only allowed limited white markings on the face and below the knees. These markings may be of a variety of shapes, including stockings, stars, strips, and blazes. However, no American Quarter Horse may have white spots or patches anywhere other than the face or cannon.

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE:

Though compact with a short body and head, American Quarter Horses are defined by their heavily muscled body, powerful shoulders and hindquarters, and strong, sturdy legs. Their heads are finely chiseled and of a flat profile with a wide forehead.

TEMPERAMENT:

American Quarter Horses are generally calm and docile. They are also highly intelligent; however, most are easily trained, handled, and kept. Because of their gentle and steady demeanor, the breed is an ideal family horse and well suited for the beginning rider.

UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS:

The American Quarter Horse is a unique combination of speed and strength. However, when combined with their gentle nature and versatility as both a work and pleasure horse, it is easy to see why the breed has gained such worldwide popularity. From the ranch to the show ring to the trail, American Quarter Horses continually please both spectator and rider with their sure-footed gait, agility, comfortable mount, and willingness to please.

Horses and the Heat

Horses and the Heat

“With summer’s sunny days can come extreme heat. Such situations can cause worry for owners as they struggle to help their horses adjust, stay healthy, and remain comfortable. But with a well-thought-out management plan, horses can stay cool and comfy in the midst of summer.

To help get you started on the right track, TheHorse.com caught up with Nancy Loving, DVM, an equine practitioner in Boulder, Colorado, to find out what the most important things to consider are when caring for horses in extreme heat.

When dealing with hot temperatures, Loving said the most important thing an owner can do is provide his or her horse with plenty of fresh water.

“Clean water should always be available; an average horse needs five to seven gallons of water per day in cool weather, while in hot weather, requirements for maintenance and to compensate for losses in sweat may prompt intake of 20 gallons or more per day,” she explained. “Horses in a herd should have access to a couple of water tanks spaced a distance apart so dominant horses don’t prevent a thirsty, more timid horse from drinking.

Adding an electrolyte supplement to your horse’s diet could help keep him drinking and restore the electrolyte balances disrupted by sweating, and horses should have access to a salt block or receive a daily salt supplement (no more than a tablespoon per day) to allow them to meet their dietary sodium chloride requirements.

Additionally, she added that for a horse that doesn’t drink well, offering a watery gruel of a supplement (such as complete feed pellets) rather than feeding them dry can help increase the horse’s water intake.

Insects are another concern that accompany increasing temperatures, Loving said.

“Hot weather brings insects so don’t forget to use fly sheets, insect repellant, and during active insect times of day, it can help to bring your horse into the barn and use fans to create airflow that foils the ability of flying insects to hover around your horse,” she added, as many biting flies are poor fliers.”
