    Thank you for thanking us. As a breeder I sometimes felt like a used car salesman. :winkgrin: I never knew what I was getting into when I dipped my toe into that pond, but what a journey. It was a...

    That is why all my mares are staying with me now that I am retired. I have placed a couple with local people that I know intimately and trust. The rest are staying home with me, even thought they...

    I could see that turning into the most monumental disaster imaginable. Renting a farm is one thing, but throwing living, breathing horses into the mix could be a real mess. IMHO.

    This horse could be a gem or he could be a nightmare. A good PPE can give some information, but only to a point. The bottom line is that you will not know what the horse's rideability is until it is...

    Back when we went that route with Wintermaske, the requirement was three scores of 65%+ at Second level with at least one score for the highest difficulty second level test, which now would be Second...

    Probably from Weltmeyer via his son. I do prefer Wolkentanz to his sire. The dam had a very quick hind leg that stepped well under. However, she was catlike in her movement - very supple, but without...

    I have used both Weltmeyer and Wolkentanz I with one of my mares (a Rohdiamant/ Freiherr/ Aktuell mare). The mare had an exemplary temperament, character, work ethic. Her two by Weltmeyer have spark,...

    I find tail length and thickness to be very heritable. I had one mare whose youngsters and grand kids and even great grand kids all got her lush, long tail. Another mare has a bit of a skimpy tail...

    This is my very last foal - a filly by Fidertanz out of my mare Wintermaske (Weltbekannt/ Rubinstein I). Named appropriately, Finale was born May 5th. These photos are from her October 3rd foal...

    Many blacks are born a silvery gray or pewter color. That does not make them a temporary "gray."

    As before, one parent or more MUST be gray for a foal to be gray.

    The prices for the mares were quite depressing. I don't know. I guess if I am willing to give away a mare, I would rather choose who gets her and not bother with getting a few thousand dollars for...

    Most true black horses are born pewter colored - almost silvery. Your foal would need one parent that was gray in order to be gray. No gray parent, not going to be gray.

    Gro N Win would not be a problem. It is actually formulated to be fed to easy keepers and would be fine for a mare that had previously foundered. The problem is the amount of extra feed the mare is...

    Good for you for perhaps giving those mares other options. I am not saying the Fjord mare cannot be a success, but ET holds so many risks, best to start with the best chance. Good luck !

    Shipping embryos is done all the time. I would use an experienced vet at both ends. Your repro vet can ship to a clinic that keeps a herd. I have used Peterson and Smith in Ocala very successfully. I...

    The ideal ET recipient is between 4 and 9 years old, has had one foal, has the same body type as the donor and has a very good reproductive exam.

    I would not use your Fjord mare because of her...

    ^^^^ This. If you can find a ration balancer meant to be fed with a grass hay, you will have a very good choice. I have fed based on that formula almost all of my breeding program (1998-present).

    If you are stuck with Foal Lac milk replacer, it is still doable. I would order some Rejuvenaide from Progressive Nutrition or some Buckeye Foal Aide and give it to the foal. I could not get an...

    At seven weeks, I would keep her on milk replacer (Buckeye, Progressive Nutrition, Land O' Lakes are the better ones). You can either bucket feed or rig up an igloo feeder. When the baby is about...
