Sorry to hijack but I had to compliment Kyzteke on such a lovely foal!! Just beautiful!! Your Schroeder filly is also stunning.
I would definitely get her started in work so she can start accumulating a riding history. A purchaser can tell if the surgery was done if they look... it does leave somewhat of a blemish at the...
Absolutely AHS! You can always get her "approved" with GOV if you have a particular stallion in mind that is not AHS approved. I would not go with OLD na.
Be very careful using ulcer medication if it is not required. Sounds more like he is either stressed about it or it is just his way of showing he doesn't like what is happening.
Beautiful foal and very lovely mare!
Daventry - so adorable!!
stoicfish: How very true and well said.
I also wanted to add that a weanling is not necessarily 10K to import. Many people will put 4 on a pallet which reduces the overall cost/horse. Of course...
I forgot to add that many countries the seller offers full view x-rays in the purchase price. This initially shocked me but is actually quite convenient when purchasing. Another thing I noticed as...
I don't think we can really compete unfortunately. It definitely costs much more to breed and raise a horse here and therefore it also moves up into the riding horse market..... at least this is...
Shoes (steel) usually do increase knee action in horses in fact some people put shoes on their mares before inspections specifically for that purpose...
Perhaps not an issue but my concern would be what happens if the foal takes on more pony characteristics and is too small to nurse. Is that a possible risk factor?
Foals actually get very little nutrition from the mare from about 4-5 months onward although they still get something. By the time they are older, it is more about the mental/emotional development. ...
So many beautiful foals!
A great article! I only wean after 6 months as the foals are definitely ready for it and the gradual weaning really makes the whole process a non issue for them.
Switching to grain free with fish helped a great deal and I noticed the change after just a couple of weeks.
Has anyone seen either of these two stallions and/or know how they produce? Temperament, jump, gaits type et.? I've heard that Carrico passes on better movement but would like to hear from people...
Oh... I'm so sorry to hear that!
I'm bringing this thread back because I am very interested to hear if Bayhawk had any luck with the expected Cormint foal? If so, how has this colt/filly developed. I really like this stallion and...
Thanks everyone. I too have seen some "coarser" types but I have seen some really nice ones and I love his canter and jump! It appears that not too many people have used his frozen though so I will...
I am interested in learning more about Connor as well including the quality of his frozen and if there has been any success with it here?
I agree with what has been said. Many years ago it happened to me..... vet put in two doses in one cycle!
Does anyone know about the stallion Coolidge's dam line? I know he belongs to 464a but am not sure which branch it is. Thanks for any help!
