    Very clear you love this mare and are doing everything for her. I know zero about equine cardiology but if the mare needs it to prevent heart failure, then she needs it. But perhaps there is an...

    Snowflakes, have you spoken to a repro vet? I am a human doctor and digoxin has many side effects. I would worry very much about using it in a pregnant/lactating mare though it may be quite different...

    I did not mean to imply that European breeders are huge outfits, like equine puppy mills. Rather, whether they are breeding 1 or 100, it is often a business rather than a pet project as was implied....

    If nothing else, GAP's comment about the finances of the equine industry offers insight into why the US-based system may fail to produce top sport horses. In Europe, the breeders actually do breed...

    As I mentioned before and JustJump posted above here, really do consider giving her some time off. They get mentally fried so easy, especially the sensitive ones. Best thing I ever did was to give my...

    This thread is interesting but I think the forest has been lost in the trees at times. Hyperion did a good job, I think, of trying to bring it together but that was many posts ago.

    Hello, too bad about what happened with your mare but good of you to put the past aside and move forward.

    My Holsteiner mares are both a bit of the same as yours. Do know that the "lore" is that...

    Bringing ours home was the best decision we have ever made.

    That being said, there are trade offs.

    I do get a little lonely for riding companions now and then. But all I have to do is remind...

    Having had the pleasure of visiting Holstein regularly, including twice this summer, it does seem that as the older breeders retire the younger generations are coming along and asking for more...

    As epowers suggests, there are many friendly people who can help. Going to breed inspections would also allow you to network.

    Mine did the same thing and not a maiden. We tried giving her more frequent smaller meals, also added water and yummies. Also hung a hay net up off the ground a but so she didn't have to stretch down...

    I was one of those brave, pretty close to crazy, riders as a youngster and into my 20's. Then I went to medical school and did a residency, no time or money so no riding. I also saw some horrific...

    So Reece - I am probably totally over-intellectualizing this - but as I spend more and more time thinking about the nuances of breeding, one thing that "bugs" me is the question of "what next"?...

    Our mare doesn't like big changes but we knew doing AI with frozen semen meant she had to go to the vet. She internalizes the stress so everyone who does not know her thinks I am crazy!
