Thanks elementfarm. Good info.
On a side note, I think JoAnn Desell was a hunter trainer or judge in MD way back when. I remember that name :)
May be looking for a warmer area with Hunter/Jumpers, Fox Hunting, trail riding.
Would be keeping horses at home. May also work from home so high speed internet is all I'd need.
Oh, love to hear that Jody. My filly is just a weanling but I adore her. On the flip side from yours, mine is going to be HUGE. She's 14hh at 7 months.
Sounds like a nice horse. Why the bias for 1/4 draft?
Lord I hope this is not so.... my almost 7 month old measured 14 hh tonight.
Ive always heard of the string test. No clue if it's a wives tale or accurate.
Ok. Will try the big fella! Thanks!
Anyone familiar with this site?
I tried an 87" weatherbeeta turnout sheet on my 5 yr old mare this morning. CRAP! Doesnt fit. It's just too small for her neck and chest.
Who makes big turnouts? I know Schnieders does but I...
Thanks everyone. Sounds like polos are probably my best choice.
^^^^ That's me. Super paranoid.
Horse has prior DDFT injury and after a year of turnout is sound and cleared to begin work. YAY!
Looking for recommendations of boots or wraps to wear during rides that would benefit a horse with...
My Cabardino weanling is huge and flashy. Bay with 4 socks, blaze and an adorable belly spot ;) I chose him to compliment my heavier Apiro mare who also has a lovely powerful jump and is slightly...
My barn is about the same size and well insulated. I have to take blankets off when they are inside, it stays well above freezing.
I keep the big garage door cracked to let fresh air in to...
Unfortunately every discipline has it's dark, ugly corner but WP makes me ill. I'm sure it's been said a hundred times already but this is what the WP judges are rewarding and it won't stop until...
Oh yes, baby gets lots of hay and a growth feed now. Same program as the adult horses- just different grain and smaller amount.
She doesn't nurse often or for more than a minute or so. I think its more out of comfort. She's pretty independent and doesn't show any signs of concern being separated at night.
I'm trying to...
5 months, 3 weeks.
That's actually a great idea! I do have separate turnout though.
I also am feeding Progressive Ration Balancer. Mine all seem to get fat on air so we feed very little grain.
Thanks. There seems to be 50/50 opinion on stopping grain. I'm going to continue with her normal feed. No need to make her upset over that too ;)
The date is coming and I'm probably more stressed than either of them.
I've been separating them in adjoining stalls overnight and they go out in turnout together. Mom's bag is quite full by...
There's another thread on this. Search Osphos.
Where do they come from? How do you keep them away? These "things" appeared in one of my trash cans with grain in it. I'm throwing it out :( The two other cans appear uninfected.
I do. Great for farm chores. Husband liked it better than all the other brands.
I always stack on pallets. 99% of the time the entire bottom layer is moldy and worthless by the time I get to it. Makes me sad but I just assume this layer is for sacrifice. This is also straight...
