    I suspect that all horses will end up flea bitten if they lived long enough. I just think the greying process happens at diffeent speeds for each individual. Homo greys tend to grey out the fastest.

    I agree with JB. Here I am trying to work with a newly haltered 7 month old colt. It's like trying to subdue a marlin on your fishing line! Very unpleasant for everyone.

    dystocia = foal was not positioned well and did not come out easily.

    Yes, just sit and observe and describe what's going on to the experienced locals.

    The only thing I'd add, is to have a...

    I think it's very beneficial to have foals and their dams running together. Age gaps between foals doesn't bother me too much. I like to let the mare and foal have a couple of weeks getting a good...

    I have a grand old mare with those long floppy sideways ears. Everyone loves her ears, it makes her kind old face even gentler.

    But I favour short pointy ears. I favour a pony type head in...

    From the phrasing I am guessing the OP is in NZ or perhaps Oz? Here in NZ Cryptorchid surgery is not done at any old clinic. It will cost quite a bit and there will be significant recovery time where...

    Ryu - lovely photography. That first mare's got such a stately expression. And the filly's beard is a scream :)

    Just a word of caution with the rubber trugs. Make sure the handle is not big enough for a foal hoof to go through it. I have seen this happen in the paddock. The foal freaked out (not surprisingly!)...

    I'm in the same boat so I feel your pain. Three goes with Furstenball, no foal :(
    So I am using a fresh local stallion. Much as it galls me to use a far lesser stallion, any foal will be better...

    That massive black spot could be a 'blood mark'. Not uncommon but I've never seen one that large over the quarters before. I think it's a type of somatic mutation. In this case a section of the horse...

    I see lots to like. Nice length of rein, great hip, good looking limbs. A little low set in the neck (but then she is a TB), and a little flattish on over the croup (perhaps it's just the way she's...

    Is he just turned two or is he older?

    He looks like a yearling. As others have said his neck is ewed. His shoulder is a good angle but the length of the scapula is short. I don't like this or his...

    Congratulations on getting hold of a lovely successful pony. At first glance that shadow makes her shoulder look steep, but it is not the case. Sooooo much better than the others :)

    Good on you for taking on a rescue! These are my thoughts:
    1. Wow that's a long back. Too short and sloping in the croup.
    2. I don't mind this one too much. Looks well balanced, good limbs, strong...

    My contracted foal (walking on tippy-toes and knuckling forward onto front of fetlock) was confined due to real risk of tendon rupture. He was wrapped and splinted for weeks.
