    Oh....missed that part somehow. Didn't realize she's currently pregnant. I just see lots of mares for sale that have been open for a year or two or more. If it's a sport mare, I'll buy an open...

    Your best bet is to sell her IN FOAL. It proves she's a proven breeder, and even if as a buyer if it's not the stallion I would have chosen, I still prefer to know she's carrying a foal. You can...

    and sadly this is why so many horses NEED shoes. You cannot trim the same when they are barefoot vs shod. The trim must be different. You're completely changing the hoof functioning putting a shoe...

    I've ridden my share of Draft crosses and they often have a tough mouth and a heavy neck. Hot and forward on a Clyde Cross could feel a bit like trying to control a freight train :)....and I'm 6...

    I breed warmbloods and buy and sell a bit. I've sold quite a few to baby boomers. I breed for temperament and have had some success supplying the 60 plussers with attractive, good moving, very...

    I know a Clyde Hackney that has show I1 OPEN successfully, and the owner rides him in the Amateur PSG. He's VERY nice....but he's not built like a TYPICAL Clyde cross. He's also quite HOT and...

    Thanks Beentheredonethat...glad you like what I breed.

    Yes, I know, I should have more video online. I do have video of horses I am actively marketing. It's difficult to get GOOD video footage...

    Selling foals is tough so I normally don't even try, but I did put out some ads this year and sold a very nice dressage type filly. The market is very limited for foals but there seems to be good...

    I really don't think Europe is the answer. Those horses are here available for sale at the same price as in Europe with far less risk. When buying local it's far easier to do a history search on...

    Come on, I don't buy that for a minute. Mileage is mileage, and mileage with a good rider in Europe shipping into shows, jumping big courses for a number of years will give that horse a significant...

    Just re sorted by average earnings per horse and was thrilled to see our relatively small Canadian Warmblood Studbook at the top for ONCE in this type of listing LOL. O.K...so we only have one...

    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...

    Screw Eye and double snap seems to be what everyone one uses for those types of stall gates. If you worry about snap durability, you want to make sure it's a solid brass snap...they are definitely...

    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...
