    As an RN of over 25 yrs and a horse/dog breeder, I can say I have to concur. I've had some super vets/MDs that I would trust with my life and some that were SO behind and SO uninformed it was scary....

    If you aren't breeding for racing or futurities, it really doesn't matter. It IS tough to manage breeding/foaling related to the weather in your area, but fans & misters & such can help.

    I tend to...

    Coming from a similar background this gave me a chuckle. I galloped racehorses in my youth and took some crazy spills! Once the young horse I was galloping propped, bolted to the outside, then...

    Well, he just won his GP debut with a solid score. And considering he really didn't start a serious breeding career till -- what? 5 yrs old? He didn't cover that many mares in SA.

    Well, it did not turn out well for my friend. The mare went into labor (was wearing a foal alarm), and the foal was positioned with both front legs back at the knees. Amazingly, they were able to...

    Actually, she is lucky enough to live less than a mile from a equine vet clinic; they have 4 vets, several of whom are repro specialists.

    I suppose there are afew exceptions to every rule...but I would estimate that 95% of horses will respect a truly hot fence.

    If your fence is truly hot she WILL respect it; IME horses respect electric more than anything else. Even my stallion would stay behind one strand of electric if it's really hot.

    I know this thread is 6 yrs old, but I just saw that A-1 Performance Sires has a limited supply of proven Quickstar frozen. Have no idea of the price, but thought I'd pass it along.

    I always got my cats from our local no-kill shelter when they got over crowded and had their "2 for 1 sale". As I recall it was $45-65 for 2 cats/kittens. All were fixed, vaccinated and came with a...

    Take a look at the pedigree of Verdades -- his entire tail female line are Dutch Harness horses...not exactly the same as STBs, but not what you would think to produce a dressage horse.
