Carrying foals 2 years running can result in a much bigger belly the second time round. I wouldn't worry but if you have a link to some photos that might help people discuss this case with better...
Thanks Daventry. This mare had a perfectly usual pregnancy and birth last season. They will try her again this year and see what comes.
Thanks for all the responses.
Mare's backside is a good shape and she is in perfect weight. Her cervix was examined pre breeding with no noted issues in shape, seal, or scar tissue etc. She will be...
Sadly the black and white foal with the one pure blue eye was born very early, the result of a placentitis mare. She was quite compromised and was euthed at 2 days old. So no more...
Here's a link to photos of the two foals and the stallion.
Thanks for the input.
I have permission to give links to photos. I'll do that when I get a minute.
I was wondering if splash is found in Clydes?
Is the mad roaning, lacy colour on Clydes due to White?
This came to mind when looking at a friend's 2 new foals.
The two foals are by the same...
I realise this topic has been covered several times before. I did a search but couldn't find anything on the chances of a mare having it again in the future.
My friend lost a premmie foal to...
Melissa, I've no idea if that holds for gaining height, but keeping them full but lean certainly helps in avoiding growth-related leg issues like OCD.
100 years ago I bred a very fine, tiny 15.1hh TB mare to a chunky, carty, 16.3hh Hanoverian. The little TB mare came from a refined and none-too-tall pedigree.
Resulting colt grew to 17.1hh.
Kathleen, it seems like you are genuinely trying to resolve the matter. What of the buyer's time/travel costs in shipping him, and the cost of keeping him for a month?
I also have a uber skinny-legged TB. She looks like a delicate show pony but is as tough as iron both physically and mentally. She is 16 and has never had a lame day in her life, no splints,...
THIS. This is what I was lead to believe. I did not think they needed 4 further breeding generations to get to full papers.
However, am I right in that this Standardbred mare in Book II can breed to an RPSI approved stallion and her offspring will be in Book I - ostensibly they will be fully membered-up breeding animals...
I don't know what the rules are in the US, but here in NZ I have had more than one of my youngsters in the championship classes at the same time. I am the handler for all of them, but I have someone...
I had a weanling filly with minor, unexplained capped hocks. A year later they were perfect.
I too have had buyers pull out. It is maddening. Some have paid money down and they did not get that back. Others have changed their minds after a legally binding verbal agreement.
I agree with...
Oh dear. I think most of us have felt this frustration! I think buyers messing breeders around is a global curse!
I have used 3 doses on 2 mares and had 2 pregnancies but no foals :(
But I have seen a handful of Furstenball foals/youngsters. All from very different warmblood mares. All the foals are leggy,...
Exactly lady. :)
Both but for very different reasons. Chipping is great for tracking and tracing an animal. Branding is a visual deterrent as well as good marketing and advertising. The horse is a walking billboard.
Thanks Bayhawk. Insightful as always. I will proceed without this concern nagging at me.
Yay! We all love it when OPs give us updates. And we all love a happy ending. Thanks for letting us know.
Thanks for the input.
Bayhawk, have you heard anything about Ramiro blood and OCD or other ailments?
