    Another thought. If your mare is a bit thin and still slow to clean up her feed, she may have ulcers. A month on ulcer meds may make a...

    I agree with JB's last post. Also, I would have the mare on Vitamin E and put the foal on it after weaning, as it is needed when a horse does not have access to good green pasture.

    The size of the body matters. Leg length is not terribly important. So a big bodied, long backed QH mare is fine for recip for a good sized wb mare. On the other hand, a small bodied, short coupled...

    I always like to do baseline xrays on any youngsters that I still have at 2 years. Those are always useful to buyers. I would not bother with an entire PPE, as any buyer is going to repeat it.

    I have no knowledge of this at all, but wish you well. I would not hesitate to ask your vet about this. It may be significant, or perhaps not. Good thoughts your way.

    You are right, Viney. Also, ATVs do need gas, but only if you use them. They can be put aside when not being used. They need no steady day in, day out care in the form of food, water, grooming, etc....

    Waiting for a follicle does not involve sleepless nights and worry. Chill. :winkgrin:

    I first vaccinated all my mares and fillies in 1999. I had been advised to do so when I was planning to begin using frozen semen from Germany the next year. I did so as a preventive, as I had been...

    that at is all I am suggesting - raise the bucket so that the foal cannot share as easily. That is really all you can do.

    Foals this age cannot digest cereal grains, so it is best to keep the foal from eating mom's feed. Sharing her hay is not a problem. Very good that the foal is nursing. :yes:

    Get her concentrates out of range of the foal. I agree with sixpound. A full bag and foal with diarrhea is a red flag. Foals that age do not stop nursing unless something is going on with their...

    I would do whatever needed to accept your handling her udder. Most mares love having their udder washed with warm water and a little soap. They soon learn that getting the smegma from between the...

    What Kendra and Siegi said. You can predict somewhat, but you won't know until the youngster stops growing. :winkgrin:

    My single pregnant mare finally foaled at 374 days. She had usually foaled near 340 days, except for the last foal which was a 2011 foal at a little less than 1 year.

    Ditto Ticker.

    I also had a short coupled mare that went very much off her feed and also developed stocked up hind legs. Her foal was lying on a nerve, making it hard to move around and making her...
