[RC] The nutritional guide to lame babies - Linda B. Merims

I had long since come to the conclusion that the so-called
propensity to club-footedness in Morgans was actually
just the extremely bad co-incidence of the Morgan's
natural thriftiness ("gets fat on air") combined with
the current fashion to feed youngsters for rapid
growth, both for show and to make them more marketable
as yearlings.
