    Your description of her behavior when you are around and not giving her 100% attention sounds just like my orphan filly soon after she came home from ICU and while she was still getting multiple meds...

    Does she have equine companions? If she does, I would not do more than the usual teaching to lead, stand for farrier and vet, hop onto a trailer once in a while, things of that sort. I would never do...

    I used a nursemare service one time. In hindsight, I realize that I was 1) shellshocked and not thinking clearly from losing a wonderful mare 20 hours after she gave birth, 2) more than a little...

    A COP verifies bloodlines, which could be important to a buyer. Most registries include COP horses in their awards programs. Because the COP comes with the USEF lifetime registration, it sound like a...

    I believe that GOV and RPSI papers are issued directly from Germany. I am very curious to hear details of how the Verband news will actually effect us as breeders.

    Blume, RPSI is not Rhinelander referred to by the Hanoverian Verband news.

    Also, AHS has full reciprocity.

    One of my German breedings of my Hanoverian mare to the Rhineland stallion Escolar was...

    It rarely takes less typing to snark than to give help.

    The Landkoenigs I have seen had great minds, rather nice gaits (even for dressage), were taller than their dams I am not sure that they had...

    Ditto Sunnyday and ahf. When a mare already has a track record always pick the brain of the former owner and anyone who might have known her and what she produced. It will be invaluable.

    You know, I never second guessed days a week or minutes a session. Properly starting a young horse is a process. It will vary according to its character, maturity, quirks. My own trainer always...

    I am so very sorry. Losing a beloved broodmare is just about the hardest thing a breeder ever faces. RIP Regina. Hugs. :sadsmile:

    I insured the pregnancy when I was importing a mare that was in foal to a very desirable stallion who was not available to be bred here in the states. Very few companies offer that insurance, except...

    I would ask your trainer to give you an offer and tell her you will consider it. In-utero contracts usually stipulate condition - usually that the foal is born viable, but not guaranteeing sex, color...

    Thank you for thanking us. As a breeder I sometimes felt like a used car salesman. :winkgrin: I never knew what I was getting into when I dipped my toe into that pond, but what a journey. It was a...

    That is why all my mares are staying with me now that I am retired. I have placed a couple with local people that I know intimately and trust. The rest are staying home with me, even thought they...

    I could see that turning into the most monumental disaster imaginable. Renting a farm is one thing, but throwing living, breathing horses into the mix could be a real mess. IMHO.

    This horse could be a gem or he could be a nightmare. A good PPE can give some information, but only to a point. The bottom line is that you will not know what the horse's rideability is until it is...

    You have a PM.

    Back when we went that route with Wintermaske, the requirement was three scores of 65%+ at Second level with at least one score for the highest difficulty second level test, which now would be Second...

    Probably from Weltmeyer via his son. I do prefer Wolkentanz to his sire. The dam had a very quick hind leg that stepped well under. However, she was catlike in her movement - very supple, but without...

    I have used both Weltmeyer and Wolkentanz I with one of my mares (a Rohdiamant/ Freiherr/ Aktuell mare). The mare had an exemplary temperament, character, work ethic. Her two by Weltmeyer have spark,...

    I find tail length and thickness to be very heritable. I had one mare whose youngsters and grand kids and even great grand kids all got her lush, long tail. Another mare has a bit of a skimpy tail...

    This is my very last foal - a filly by Fidertanz out of my mare Wintermaske (Weltbekannt/ Rubinstein I). Named appropriately, Finale was born May 5th. These photos are from her October 3rd foal...

    Many blacks are born a silvery gray or pewter color. That does not make them a temporary "gray."

    As before, one parent or more MUST be gray for a foal to be gray.

    The prices for the mares were quite depressing. I don't know. I guess if I am willing to give away a mare, I would rather choose who gets her and not bother with getting a few thousand dollars for...
