    In the wild, foals walk miles and miles on a daily basis and wear off their hooves accordingly. Not so with our pampered domestic foals.

    I saw a very striking bay leopard Knapstrupper/TB competing at the Blenheim 3* event this year. Strangely, he had a grey tail.

    Has anybody tried Easy Mare herbal supplement?
    I have a 3-year-old that gets super grumpy when in heat. I've tried raspberry leaves and Smart Calm Ultra to no avail.

    I love this thread. It gives me hope as I've had one of those challenging foals that is now three and about to be backed. I sure hope that in a couple of years I can say she's a delight to ride. :yes:

    I agree with Lady Eboshi. Many boarding facilities do not feed enough hay especially not at night time. Two flakes at evening feeding time is not enough. That's how horses end up with ulcers because...

    Horses are herd animals and need the social contact of other horses. Some may seem to be fine alone but it's a sad life nevertheless.
    May I ask the OP what are you keeping a stallion for?

    Thank you, Kerole. That is basically what I meant.
    I realize that there is more to breeding than just picking a popular stallion but there are some stallions like Sandro Hit, Fidertanz,Feedback...
  18. Question for breeders: Which stallions' foals are most popular?

    I have been wondering if certain stallions' offspring sell better than others and which stallions tend to be most popular?
    Could breeders chime in if their breeding decisions are based on that or on...

    I would second this. Too many horses end up in a really bad situation especially when they're difficult to handle.

    CHT, you are doing the right thing. Let her go the easy way. Don't let your husband persuade you to give her away as she will end up in a really bad place eventually.
