    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...

    Also be aware that the Fuerstenball semen is not tremendously reliable. A Facebook breeder's group has shown mostly unsuccessful attempts for this year (three success, 1 in Australia, and 6...

    ^^^^^ This is true. All my Fidertanz offspring added quite a bit of substance to the mare.

    I would use leather halters, not tie anyone and no wraps on mom. Have shipped mares and foals this way many, many times. I am sure there will be lots of opinions on this, and some will vary from...

    Another tip, never let anyone but close friends, family and your mirror hear you whine. Do not tell the world that no one will come to see your horses. Instead just keep telling them how wonderful...

    For anyone who might care, people involved with AHS actually pointed out to the OP that there was no real advantage to doing the MPT for her mare who was not Hanoverian registered. They also pointed...

    I also think that it makes a lot of sense for the OP to be doing exactly what she decided to do - take her foal to GOV. That avoids getting the mare inspected twice and makes great sense since she is...

    Joe, I am unfamiliar with the bullies to which you refer. I am not seeing bullies on this thread.

    Incidentally, the last (and first) time I spoke to you, you called me asking me some questions...

    Oh my. I much prefer a long, well thought out post that is crafted in a tactful manner any day over brief, snarky ones.

    ^^^^^ This.

    AHS registry, especially for a filly, opens up a lot of options down the road. Buyers strictly looking for a riding horse will probably not care. However, the AHS registry just adds to...

    I was very surprised by the height myself, Blume Farm. I never expected it from the combination.

    I bred him to a mare with a lot of elasticity and a slightly longer back. That was a superb...
