Seminar follow up - Nutrition

I was doing some literature searches and came across a paper that is almost exactly the information that was presented during the nutrition seminar.  I can't remember whether the guy who wrote the paper (Duran) is the same person who presented at the seminar, but the company is the same - Kentucky Equine Research.  Unfortunately, there is no year on the paper so I'm not sure how much older the information in the paper is than what I heard at the seminar.  And, while it has references, I think the in-text citations are inadequate - BUT I think it's nice to see the information written down so it can be evaluated, rather than what I remembered being presented.

If you are interested, the paper has been added to the Mendeley group (you can access it from the side bar) and is called "Feeding the endurance horse".

Update:  After reviewing KER's "published research" page, I think the paper I posted was probably this one:  Duren S, KM Crandell. 1998. Feeding the endurance horse. World Equine Veterinary Review. Vol 3/2:28-35.

Other citations that might be of interest to you (but I don't have the time to look up and post the actual documents) are:

FYI - All these papers hare some how associated with KER's research program
