    Thanks JoZ. I found the video. The needle threader thing makes it look pretty easy. But how do you attach the tubes to the tail before threading the hair through each tube? The video did not show...

    I need some help re tail wrapping for horses in 24/7 turnout. I have a pure white mare with a green/brown tail. Plus a palomino weanling that I'd like to show in the spring.

    I have tried tail bags...

    I agree with you Blume. I've not seen either the mare or Furstenball in the flesh but I think we're talking 2 quite different issues.

    Furstenball's long, flexy pasterns may be considered a...

    Who is handling him? Horses read off the handler's nerves. The handler may not notice that they are behaving differently when they take the horse into the ring. Ringside, no pressure, everyone is...

    I would've thought by his age the stallion would be showing considerably greater signs of the disease by now if it was indeed DSLD. And since he's such a popular stallion he must spend most of the...

    Those photos show his head and neck better. You're right, he has a little cheeky pony face! His neck really is set on very low. The first photos are misleading, he looked to have a stocky, thick...

    I agree. This would not acceptable for me either. I have a 20 year old mare that's had 11 foals, her pasterns are not dropped at all. My advice would be to steer clear.

    I can't tell a lot from those photos I'm afraid.

    But from what I can see, he looks to have a very thick-set neck. It's a good length but ties in low toward the chest, making it very broad -...

    I feel your confusion! :) Equine colour genetics can be a messy thing to get to grips with.

    DW and sabino are not associated - one does not need the other to make white markings.

    Not so long...

    Also, just because your foals to date have not been unlucky enough to be OLWs does not mean your stallion does not carry it. As a stallion owner and breeder, you need to be informed so you can make...

    Dominant White is not recessive. Unlike recessive chestnut, you only need one DW allele to be passed to make a DW foal.

    It is possible that the flashy brown colt is a minimally marked DW and if...

    There are a decent handful of Negro foals/pregnancies here in NZ. I'm unsure about the number of straws used but I know the breeders were pleased with the quality of the semen.

    Ah yes Kyzteke - you summed up me and my grumpy-faced mare perfectly! A LOT of foul facials until she 'agrees' that what you're doing is ok with her. To the uninitiated it looks very scary indeed. ...

    It is important that you refer to your horses' colour by the correct term. It is misleading to call them Overo. APHA currently has no tick-box for Dominant White so they are incorrectly lumped in...

    JB, how do you know what Extension the DW is linked to? Is it different for each horse, each DW variant (e.g. W5, D15, etc), or is it 'unknown until it's known' by looking at a number of offspring...

    I find it helps to not lift the leg too high off the ground. Try trimming the hoof with the foot lower, toward the ground and not pulled all the way up near the belly. It's not as easy for the...

    It seems that mares can drop another follicle shortly after ovulating, and if there is viable sperm still present it can be fertilised. These secondary follicles must be difficult to see/assess...

    Friend's mare foundered post-foaling. Suspected that it was actually underway before foaling but mild and not pick up. Foaling was uneventful, no retained placenta, but she foundered badly. She was...
