    I found one that sounded good on a repro supply web site and bought one on eBay that had matching specs for about 1/4 of the price. It has served me well for about 13 years.

    As far as a lack of purebred Cob mares to Cardi, there are very, very few people breeding Cobs currently, and a lot of times they have their own stallion, or one nearby. I don't think it is any...

    I breed Welsh Ponies, so that is where my experience lies (or is that lays? I can never remember!). We keep our pony foals in a much different manner than the WB and TB folks do. We like our foals...

    Gosh, hard to say with the TB in the mix there.... But with her back end already at 13.1 as a yearling, I'm going to venture a guess that she will go over 13.2. But all it is is a guess. LOL

    It seems like they always forget at least *some* of what you've worked on at home, but more show experience is the cure for that!

    I've done both, but I think that (at least for me), buying a really nice filly, raising her the way I want, and then choosing her matches, works better in the long run.

    Older horses are costly to...

    One of our very first Welsh mares was a granddaughter of *Downland Drummer Boy. She had a head like a bucket, but she was extremely sweet. (I don't know where in the pedigree the head might have come...

    Unfortunately, I've had this happen a couple of times in years past. There's never any question if the semen got into the container -- I put it there myself, so I KNOW it was there.

    I've started...

    Genevieve -- I think he is making progress! The fact that he can stand on his own is big (IMO).

    I had a filly born in 2009 with VERY contracted tendons. She was completely unable to stand at all,...

    I've bought and sold many, many foals over the years. They do fine. It's not nearly as difficult or stressful as a lot of people make it out to be. I regularly have shipped weanlings in (to my farm...

    That is so weird! Sounds like they must be having some kind of problem with their system. Really nerve wracking though, and it makes no way to follow along with the shipment to make sure it is where...

    I agree.

    I have NO idea what, exactly went on here.

    My shipments arrive at Fedex with labels ALREADY on them, Sandy. Fedex has to do nothing, but take the shipment -- which they did.
