So I am getting reading to start writing a proposal for a huge research report, and I don't know what topic to do it on... I have a few in mind and was wondering what you guys thought was a good idea... Equine rehabilitation (focus on off the racetrack horses) Equine immunology and reproduction or Equine nutrition and immunology... Three topics i am highly interested in, but i can only currently focus on one... what do you guys think?

All are complicated subjects and not as clearcut as you might think? I don't know that much about rehab, but have heard they're making some wonderful advances including using stem cells. Repro is not always as simple as a culture and treating the infection based on what the bacteria is sensitive too. Sometimes the mare is retaining fluid or her thyroid is out of whack (thyro-L helps with that). Nutrition is another interesting subject. I think whatever someone feeds, the key is to keep it balanced. Alfalfa and Oats balance each other very nicely nutritionally for example. I can't really tell you what to do your report on, but I would suggest it be the one that MOST intrigues you. That should also give you an idea if you want to specialize in that field? If you want to be a racetrack vet, I'd suggest researching rehab for example. Hope this helps! Best of luck in your decision.

Ya I know they are complicated and i need to narrow it down more... i was just looking for a basis of something to work off of... i think i am leaning to the rehab one and i will see what resources my school has to offer in aiding me with this research...

I would be most interested in Equine Reproduction. I always thought that reproduction was very interesting subject matter, regardless of the subject! You may want to do a little bit of research on each of your topics and then decide which of them you just HAD to know more about and go with that one ; ) GOOD LUCK : )
