    Something like this....I use an old woven rag, western saddle blanket...a bit heavier duty, but like the rug runners. 3'x6' long. I've had one on a ramp onto my side porch for about 6 years. ...

    I'd say you have the right technique...it's just going to take time and PATIENCE!!. I'd walk/jog til he

    Thanks for the clarification and new "title" for our horses. Politically correct, I'm sure...but our horses are loud solid colors with white mixed in!! I will now know the correct term, though!! I...

    I know about frame...wouldn't touch one with a ten foot pole for breeding stock...but APHA calls the lacey colored/white pattern that our horses possess "overo" and registers them that...

    Back when we used to breed a few outside mares via live cover...I have been refused to cover a couple of mares. One came to the farm in such poor condition that if the stallion mounted her she...

    WOW!!! You guys are great...but the information is overwhelming!!!

    First...mares are all sired by our Puchi's Rambo (by Puchilingui, o/o Copper Anna (chestnut mare with some white) I know Puchi...

    Maybe it's an age "thing", but I'm dead on with Rodawn!!! A suckling/weanling Diva is a lot easier to redirect than an older, bigger, stronger willed one!! I've been in the horse business for over...
  11. Another "color genetics" question for the experts.

    I'm honestly a bit disappointed in the "spotless", but otherwise, excellent foals we got this year. We bred two loud overo TB mares and one pure white ISH mare, all by our beloved Puchi's Rambo...

    Sounds like the trainer is a "fruit loop"!! Unless she gets a percentage of this horse's earning for life...what business is it to her who buys him!! I'd sell a GP jumper as a pasture pet if the...

    This. I'd also think about putting a piece of 2x4 or landscape timber around the area that he "usually" favors pooping. As he paces, he'd have to make a point to step over the block to access the...

    Not knocking V mesh in any way except for price and installation...not hard to do using Bluey's technique, but the fence you posted (anything twisted, NOT WELDED!) will do the same job. A roll of...

    This. It is hard enough to ensure that a sound, ridable, usefull horse gets sold to a worthy home. I would be very skeptical of anyone wanting a free, unridable horse. A peaceful end is way better...

    I've always likened our foaling to a Christmas Grab Bag!!! I'm ALWAYS pleased and surprised!! We had our first foals by "Challenged" this year. All out of Rambo mares...two overos and a pure white...

    Interesting concept. Puchi's Rambo was a chestnut/white, but one of our plain black mares...not a white hair, produced 7 loud overo foals in 7 breedings and every one was dark bay/brown or black!!

    Odd that he doesn't mind kneeling to have his feet done!! Have you tried pressing him to a wall for support? I'm not a believer in stocks, but I've seen feral horses put in stocks with a belly band...

    I think it is a unhappy reaction to having the legs handled/controlled. We start handling feet and legs shortly after birth and they get used to being picked up and held. At this point you need a...

    Retorical question.... why is it some non-homozygous tobianos and some dominant white (Puchilingui /TB, offspring particularly) or overos seem to be so much stronger producing color on solid mares?? ...
