    That's a bit out of my shopping zone!! Canada is at least the same continent!! Thanks anyway!!

    I've found that Irish Sport Horses 3/4 TB are our best sellers. Look like TB's, move like TB's, but have "softer" easier, dispositions for a rider friendly mount.

    I really don't want to "breed my own"...with my luck 'd end up with a barn full of fillies before I got a colt I'd like!! I'd rather "see" what I want. This spring I have two ISH tobiano/pinto...
  5. Where to look for a tall (16.2+) Pinto/Paint stallion prospect.

    With hubby's current (temporary, I hope) health issues, we are considering moving away from the Painted TB's to something quieter that we can AI. We plan to keep all of our current TB and ISH mares...

    At this point in their riding education...I don't see saddle size as a major issue. One 16.5" saddle would be nice, but I'm sure you can get the basics underway with a 17". Good for you to teach...

    I'm SOOOO with you here!! I went to get my barn cat some "fluid" water this morning, only to realize that I was distracted last night and failed to disconnect and drain 60 feet of hose!!! I finally...

    I can see the OP's point. She paid for the horse and feels cheated that the new owner took the mare for free to ride...not breed. Now is sidestepping her "deal" and coming out with a free "foal...

    I really appreciate THIS info!!! We LOVE the ISH's...especially the 3/4 TB. They are ABSOLUTELY not "hardheaded!!! Being a TB person at heart...I'll take a "bit hot" over hardheaded!!! I don't...

    I've got two 30 yr. olds I keep plump with "very well".... as in sloppy... soaked beet pulp, alfalfa cubes, alfalfa pellets and a cup of rice bran...all twice daily with unlimited hay and/or grass. ...

    I have another "possible" option as well. Long range plan, though...We have two ISH, 1/4 TB tobiano mares bred to our TB stallion for 2015. If luck is with us...maybe one will give us a quality...

    Thanks for this input. The TB/WB is VERY typy and the ISH's we breed (3/4 TB or more) look and move like TB's, but with the Irish minds. Since losing Our painted TB stallion, Puchi's Rambo, 10...

    Glad you are home. We were all worried about you. I knew you were on your way to recovery when you declined to tell how many horses you owned!!! Healing thoughts your way.

    "Lethal bullet" is the ONLY way we put horses down for years. Quick and without the drama of trying to get enough of "the stuff" in an old/ill vein. SIL has done ours recently and it is really...
  15. Thoughts on adding WB/TB blood to the TB/ISH mix???

    This got buried at the end of another thread...
    What are the thoughts on a TB/ISH cross bred to WB/TB crosses?? I've never dealt with any "WB's" and am wondering whether such a cross on the ISH...

    What are the thoughts on a TB/ISH cross bred to WB/TB crosses?? I've never dealt with any "WB's" and am wondering whether such a cross on the ISH would be an improvement or detrement. I LOVE the...

    As PatO said!! But it also depends a lot on the "other half" of the ISH mix. Ours are 3/4 TB - 1/4 Irish or a bit less Irish and the mares are all lovely show hunter types. The offspring--so far...

    Any backhoe can dig through the frozen ground...usually only 24" to get below to 30" frost line!! Sorry for them.

    If you consider this horse/breeder...investigate VERY carefully.

    Get him out of the ring...into a field or trail and let him canter behind another horse on soft contact!! Teach him that "forward" is FUN!!!. I've "ruined"/reschooled many made WP horses this way. ...

    Yes...and when your youngster is a foot higher than all the others and NOT crippled you will be shocked to finish LAST!!! We did APHA halter ONE time...that was more than enough!!

    I'd go with a small donkey before a pony. Donkeys make excellent companions, but don't care if the horse leaves!! Goats are too fragile and a PITA in many situations. Ponies can be bossy or too...

    I'd go with Equine Express. We had good experience and the route is straight from SC to Dallas. I'd stay away from internet sites...we got scammed by a "reputable" shipper. Took our money and...

    Sorry for you. We used to live between Syracuse and Rochester, but had clients (race horses) in Alexandria bay and friends in Watertown. IMO...I'd rather go to Hell!! Oh wait...that's the same...
