    What JB said. I never gave my foals much in the way of creep feeding until they were nearly ready to wean. It is good that you got the milk pellets rather than encouraging the foal to eat grain...

    I was always told by my vet to taper off. I did it pretty conservatively - reduced by 2 cc per day until zero.

    Ditto what JB said - in its entirety. Very good advice.

    I would insist on a box stall in which he would NOT be tied. If at all possible, I would wait for cooler weather than most of the country is experiencing at present. Try to use shippers who stay in...

    Lately, I keep finding myself saying to myself, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." Some of the dressage fashions these days give me a headache. Color me old and cranky.

    This is just horrific.

    Is this article correct? That she was only fined $900 and can own animals?

    I have always had mare and foal loose in a well bedded box stall. In your case I would remove the dividers.

    This. Your mare is probably worth more and more salable under saddle than as a broodmare in foal.

    Maidens are wonderful candidates for frozen semen, as long as it is good semen. I have bred maidens with frozen many times and almost always successfully.

    To the OP - I lost a beautiful filly in 2011 because of a neck injury that caused severe ataxia and did not improve with the best possible treatment. She was about three months old when we had to put...

    I cannot speak to your mare's bloodlines, csaper58, but I do understand your thoughts and I am very sorry for your loss. Special horses leave huge holes. My best thoughts to you.

    My only case of twins being carried long into a pregnancy was from a cycle where the vet never worried about twins because she was absolutely certain that the mare did not double ovulate. Obviously,...

    I interpreted this as the mare has not yet received her pre-foaling shots. I certainly did not make the mental leap to lack of any vaccinations.

    OP, I agree with ahf on this. Consult your vet to...

    A lot of horses with large blazes will have an eye with white sclera. On of my first homebred fillies has one. At first, I disliked that eye and would always try to take pics of her from her "good"...
