    I know a couple mares who have had foals outside in the pouring rain. I don't question they can hold off delivery for a while, but having it in the rain probably would be safer in many ways, since...

    Don't worry about re registering the mare. The mare is who she is, and she has a proof of pedigree document....a birth certificate. Getting a different certificate printed from another association...

    When the going gets rough, why don't vets use death by Exsanguination (blood loss) to get it over with faster. It's not pretty I get it, but at least it's pretty fast. Have a good knife ready,...

    THIS....very few pros or talented amateurs are going to put the time and effort into the correct development of a OTTB for dressage. It's an exercise in frustration. It takes a lot longer, and in...

    A few years ago I attended an Equine Science conference and they discussed the ethics of Euthanasia and one of the conclusions was that death by rifle, or captive bolt pistol (what they use at the...

    Because foals by Stallions Du Jour sell better...and faster, especially if you're looking to sell them really young. I even think that at inspections your foal from the latest greatest new stallion...

    Yes that's exactly it, he overpowers his front end, and then occasionally I get a few strides of WOW!!!!! when he lifts and really reaches with his front legs as well. The trot completely changes. ...

    I think it's a real concern. Auctions and young horses classes do favour early maturing long front leg....leg flinger types. They are sure athletic looking and expressive, but most of these horses...

    Main reason for lost papers is that the Horse's true identity is being hidden on purpose:
    -to hide where the horse came from, don't want to divulge their source in Europe.
    -hide the fact that the...

    It depends on the situation. I took back a mare once out of an SPCA seizure, and used her as a broodmare for a number of years and then rehomed her when it was time to retire her from broodmare...

    forgot about this thread until now. I will use average statistics for the Province I live in. I travel extensively for work and feel just as safe in almost every area of Ontario as I do at home. ...

    I breed warmbloods in Canada and have sold several to the US. It's not really a big deal, Coggins, health certificate, and it's best to use a broker to handle the export papers, but that can be done...

    Try a mid neck. It looks like they bunch a bit, but that is how they are supposed to fit I think. I have little to no shoulder rubs, and never wither rubs with the midneck blankets...they are now...
