As_kk the Vet ViGnegarePrreVv00ents stones in intestines Q: Is vinegar good for my horse? A: Apple cider vinegar is commonly used by horse Valley Dental Group 1420 IL Slate lway 372 727,6615 I II i VEA Revises Line Extension Rule owners in this area to help prevent "enterolith" (stones in the intestine) from forming. There is some question whether one or two tablespoons of vinegar daily or several times a week will do much good in an animal that weighs 1,000 pounds and has 90 feet of intestine. The'fact is that vinegar (acetic acid) is a normal product of bacte- AL m--- o ,-,_,_[ ,,/)oJoAl' rial fermentation in the cecum of the horse and is ab- sorbed providing considerable energy for the horse. Since most horses will accept vinegar in the ration and it will do no harm, feeding vinegar in small amounts is acceptable management and may help to prevent stone formation in the intestine. We will keep an open mind about this one. PsyUium helps to curb sand, dirt Q: What is psyllium and should I feed it to my horse? A: Psyllium husk is the outer shell of the seeds of the psyllium plant. This has the properties of absorbing water and swelling to form a gelatinous mass. This gel is what catches sand and moves it along out of the intestinal tract. Brans such as wheat and rice cannot do this anywhere as efficiently as psyllium can, and some think bran can even make a sand blockage worse. Horses should be routinely fed psyllium wherever they have access to dirt'or sand paddocks. In this area, that is 99 percent of the horse population. Feed amounts according te the manufacturer's label directions. I suggest feeding for seven days in a row out of the month. Two forms are available. Most common is a powder that you mix with the grain. Alternatively, pellets are available, which some horses may prefer. gain. sale deed, recorded document, etc.). 2.

Direct any questions regarding the package to either of VEA's new business representatives. VEA has historically subsidized a portion of the cost of line extensions for its members in the interests of promoting growth and economic development in VEA's service firea--and in doing so, the co-op spread the cost for this subsidy to all of its existing members through its per kilowatt hour (kwh) power rates. Even with the new 150 feet reduction in free primary line extension footage, VEA will continue to subsidize the cost of 350 feet. if necessary, for new line extension to new consumers. VEA was formed in the early 1960s Effective August 1, 1997, Valley Electric Association will absorb the cost for 350 feet of primary power line exten- sion for new VEA consumer/members. This change is a reduction of 150 feet from the 500 feet of free primary and secondary power line extension that had been in effect since January 1, 1991. Also effective Augtst 1, if a VEA power line must be extended beyond the 350 feet of free footage, the consumer will pay more than the current rates for it--depending on the type of electrical service required (single or three phase, or single to three phase conversion). The revised rates make this expense more in line with the actual installation costs of VEA line extensions. New VEA consumers who submit a complete application package by July 31,1997 to either of VEA's new busi- ne representatives will still qualify for the 500 feet of free line extension. Direct any questions about this, and all other line extension questions, to the new business reps or to VEA's staking engineer at (702) 727-5312; or toll free from anywhere In Nevada at 1-800-742-3330.

Proof of ownership (grant, bar- when VEA's service area had far fewer consumers than today, and a liberal amount of free line extension was in- centive for people to settle the area. However, consumer growth has en- abled the service area to "fill in" substan- tially. That VEA, which is a nonprofit electric cooperative, has been able to offer free line extension had to be recon- sidered in light of several factors includ- ing: the threat of deregulation in the power industry; and major project construction costs. These factors have also made it nec- essary for VEA's management and di- rectors to reconsider what the co-op charges consumers for other services, too. Line extension allowances must in- creasingly be balanced against greater installation costs for these extensions, and also anticipated power industry changes, and their financial effect on all of the co-op's consumers--because the line extension subsidy is paid for through VEA's kwh power rates.
