    If you could do a run-in/stall shed row style, I think that would be ideal. If crap never happens, probably a stall wasted. But a colic, injury etc. you are left with nowhere to confine. Also, what...

    Never had a mare like that, but from dog breeding it sounds like uterine inertia. For dogs they try oxytocin to see if they can kick start it before a c-section. No idea if that would work in horses....

    I've had mine about 7 years. Love it. Would by another if I needed something different. My friend liked mine so much, she purchased one about 2 years ago.

    FB is a good source. If you look for an ISH to event, there are several Irish pages and an Irish for sale page. There are also ones that are regional or for event horses. As already suggested,...

    You can also look to in-utero's that will give you a foal and most like myself give a LFG. So for <10K you can probably have a good choice of young horses that were purpose bred - ISH, WB, TB

    I do a string test ad compare it to the add 2 hands at 12 months. If they agree, I feel fairly confident on final height. Do you have other offspring to compare final heights. If 17.2 is a hard rule,...

    We did do mats. Hasn't deterred them from using it as the toilet, but it is so much easier to clean. I just use a plastic winter shovel. Ours have been in the one shed 8 years and still working well

    Most of the 1/2 have had a good go along with a good whoa. Especially if your mare has a good engine. If you definitely want to keep a hotter engine, can look to the ISH like Flagmount Freedom
