    Is Oakhurst out of business? They used to stand his sire (and others) but they seem to have vanished off the web.

    The mare owner owns the foal. I would call the boarding stable where the mare was picked up and see if they have any news of the owner. They might not know them anymore or they might be agreeable to...

    No, actually he had a reputation for being a sweet, well mannered stallion. He was dead when we visited Win Star but they remarked on how nice he was and how much they missed him (and not just...

    I guess when you are that big and have no trouble filling a book you can do whatever you want. But when we went to KY we always got a tour of the breeding facilities and they ALWAYS had a stall for...

    That was In Tissar, a real bad ass. They rigged up a chute system so they could run him to the paddock, to his stall, and to the breeding shed without having to touch him. Poor mare had to face him...

    Daufuskie (sp?) Pirate was the second stallion. He was not put down until years later of age (says cancer on PQ). He was actually about the same age or younger as Aly T. I do not think Aly T had a...

    Most stallions do not need any encouragement. Adding anabolic steroids to a normal stallion not only will depress libido and sperm count, it can make the horse impossible to handle. You might see...

    I have nothing to add but my sympathy. You'll miss him forever but one day the good memories will outshine the pain.

    It would be helpful to see a pic. of the mare but I really like Butterwap confetti. I would definitely try to use a few spot leopard as the sire, either App or Knab. Pick one that matches your mare...

    Horse twins are almost always fraternal. I am guessing there must be a horse physiology reason for it but I don't know what it is. However even on big breeding farms they have to check at (however...

  16. Free lease on 8 year old OTTB mare with 4 mos. professional training Panama City, FL

    I was downsized this year for the second time and unfortunately the economy has taken a toll on this area and there are NO JOBS, not even any to apply for. So I cannot afford to feed 2 big old...

    While the BO should contact her insurance asap, she should also get her OWN lawyer who SHOULD be able to get this thrown out without even going to court or through all the motions. The HO did not...

    I would put him down too and I am appalled that a vet cannot see that it is the best, most humane thing to do.

    I only saw one person sort of defending that method. I think 99% of us know that is piss poor horse handling. It was just pointed out that this is very typical of of that (and similar) cultures. ...

    Since they couldn't be registered I don't see any point in cloning any past TB. It would be an expensive oddity. I'd rather see that money go towards the welfare of current racehorses who end up in...

    It seems amazing but KBs are often the worst of the worst when it comes to horse neglect. I suspect because most of them have little invested in the horses and little inclination to do real farm...

    That was in the Breeders Cup but she didn't win, she was pulled up pretty quickly (had a sharper jock I guess!) and she died that night. I forget if it happened earlier or that night but one of the...

    He didn't race like this. They were working him over the turf before the breeder's cup and he stepped on his foot with his other foot and sheared it off. He was immediately retired.

    Huge difference between keeping a pleasure horse sound enough to be ridden (and OMYGOSH jumped a bit) and a horse that can take out any number of horses and riders if he breaks down in a race, a...

    Very sad these horses will not get help and have to continue to suffer. Was it ever confirmed that horses were euthanized? Like that poor pony?
