Example text

The glycerol released during fat breakdown tends to accumulate during hard exercise, possibly because of the raised concentration of blood lactate, and only on completion of hard muscular work is it utilized for the regeneration of glucose (Fig. 1). The energy requirements of extended work can be accommodated entirely within the aerobic breakdown of glucose and by the oxidation of body fat. Thus, no continued accumulation of lactate was observed in two horses subjected to an endurance ride (Fig.

Horses and ponies accustomed to a diet rich in cereals will have, in a rhythmical fashion, greater peaks and lower troughs of blood glucose than those individuals maintained on a roughage diet, owing to differences in insulin secretion and the differences in rates of consumption of the two types of diet. The grain-fed horse at peak blood glucose is more spirited, and less so in the trough, but cannot necessarily sustain work better at the peak. The practical corollary of this is that individual horses and ponies accustomed to a diet rich in concentrates should be fed regularly and frequently in relatively small quantities, not only to prevent the occurrence of colic, but also to smooth out the cyclic changes in blood glucose (preparation for exercise is a different matter and is discussed in Chapter 9).

Such a rise is unlikely to occur after a meal, as normal feeds are low in fat content. ENERGY METABOLISM Hard muscular work may require that energy is available for muscular contraction at a rate some 40 times that needed for normal resting activity. Thus, rapid changes in the supply of blood glucose could result unless the animal’s system responds quickly. There are many changes to accommodate the altered circumstances, but our discussion at this point will relate to the supply of nutrients to the tissues.
