[RC] rugs - Richard ALLEN

Hello all,

This from "Vet Gates; Getting it Right" by Dr Kieran O'Brien MRCVS:

"Common errors committed by crews in vat gates include... not cooling aggressively. Failing to apply water to all of the horse including the hindquarter muscle masses, or worse still heating up the rear end with rugs while cooling the front end. Cooling the hindquarters of a horse does not cause it to tie up and rugs are rarely necessary in vet gates (before presenting to the vet) during daylight hours."
