   Just read an article on Equine leukoencephalomalacia or ELEM, commonly known as moldy corn poisoning.

   Usually causes neurological damage (mistakenly diagnosed as EPM?), but some horses end up with liver disease instead.  I see many trainers using liver flush products because routine blood screenings indicate elevated bilirubin.  It's assumed the liver has been damaged because of the drugs (legal and non-legal) racehorses routinely get, when it's quite likely it could be from cheap feed. 
  Sadly ironic that the same trainers who spend hundreds on epm and liver medications try to save money on feed....

Here is a good  one.

I had a young trainer come  to me talking all about his blood counts from a blood test, I listen to him and then he said "My horse has a kidney problem" I said "what makes you think that?" he said "oh my horses SAT are real high" I said "well then he wont have any problem getting into college" and I just walked away.

I realized this kid didn't no an AST from a SAT.

I realized horse was in trouble too.

I try to stay away from corn unless its in extruded form. This past year was a horrible year for corn mold with all the wet weather and cool summer. I feed mostly oats with a high fat/high fiber supplement. Its worked for me for years.
