    Actually, I would be willing to bet there are more ways to drug a horse today and get away with it than it was 30 yrs ago.

    And we both know there is no drug in the world that can make a horse run...

    Most horses who are kept outside 24/7 & not blanketed are not "sleek & shiny" in late March/early April. They have tons of winter hair. Ponies are especially hairy.

    Ditto the "pasture management"...

    Statistically, most foalings occur without an issue.

    But when it goes bad, it can go REALLY bad. One of my mares was leased out and the woman wisely left the horse at her vet's for foaling. Thank...

    There was a whole thread on this very subject not too long ago on the Sport Horse breeding forum.
