    Your foal is young and could still develop characteristics and turn varnish roan down the road. Usually they develop SOME characteristic or more by the age of 2 although the roaning may start...

    Shirayukihime is the origin of the white spotting in her family. She is the first one that mutated (so to speak) in the womb and once that happens it is a dominant gene. So that is where the color...

    Budweiser makes such a big deal out of their breeding program I doubt they are anything but pure. Now, buying a trained hitch horse that fits the specs is certainly believable. Sabino does not...

    Yes these crazy guys are TIED ON. You can only imagine the injuries these horses can suffer. They are true wild horses, gathered in from the range and they tie them up and slap a saddle on them and...

    He looks like a palomino with some sooty markings but not enough to be a sooty palomino. Horses can have dark marks that are like birth marks in people or just random weirdness!

    It is ironic but most purebred rescues were started by breeders who felt a responsibility toward their breed, not just their own dogs (or cats or horses or whatever). If we stop breeding GOOD...

    I would booster them and bury the bat. Take them to a shot clinic if your vet might question it.

    I've been bitten by dogs but never "attacked". Mostly it was a charge and bite and back off. But one time I was walking my schip puppies and I heard a huffing noise behind me. I turned around and...

    If you can afford it, let them pay for the dental and you can pay for the rest and have it done at the same time. Then once he has recovered you can either adopt him or let someone else adopt him.

    Is Oakhurst out of business? They used to stand his sire (and others) but they seem to have vanished off the web.

    The mare owner owns the foal. I would call the boarding stable where the mare was picked up and see if they have any news of the owner. They might not know them anymore or they might be agreeable to...

    No, actually he had a reputation for being a sweet, well mannered stallion. He was dead when we visited Win Star but they remarked on how nice he was and how much they missed him (and not just...

    I guess when you are that big and have no trouble filling a book you can do whatever you want. But when we went to KY we always got a tour of the breeding facilities and they ALWAYS had a stall for...

    That was In Tissar, a real bad ass. They rigged up a chute system so they could run him to the paddock, to his stall, and to the breeding shed without having to touch him. Poor mare had to face him...
