Re: Savannah’s new trim pics uploaded


The following is from Dr. Kellon's website regarding her professional credentials. I've cut out some of it in order to highlight the answer to your vet's question of "what has she published?" 
Her field trials are an attempt to bridge( as is ECIR) the "perfect" world of university research and the real world of horses. I would like to know if your vet believes that the tightly controlled, heavily financed conditions of peer reviewed research are actually attainable by the average horse owner, or does using the results of the research and applying it as much as possible to real life situations make more sense and produce more results?
