  1. Sorry for no replies - but as a Welsh breeder...

    Sorry for no replies - but as a Welsh breeder myself, I would say the pedigree is not something many will be looking for - mainly because she is actually a Sec. B - due to having a mix of Sec. A and...

    I thought it has been said many times that Larasan does not add size? I have to agree that I would not think you would get a good sized large by breeding to him - even though I love the pedigree. I...

    I dont agree that you must limit yourself to Sec. As - I know of many large ponies produced from mares of 16.1 and 16.2hh by smaller sec. Bs - especially those with primarily imported bloodlines. I...

    We moved 30 ponies from NE Ohio to the Charleston, SC area 18 months ago. I moved 4 stallions, 2 mares with foals beside, yearlings, 2 yr olds, broodmares, etc. I used Creech and they were GREAT! ...

    My sister's mare had an ulcer in her eye that would not heal. It turned out she had developed a fungus in the eye on top of a bacterial infection. They had to place a tube in her eye and keep her on...

    We recently moved to SC too, but I am not about to complain about this little brush with winter we have had this year! After 10 years in the snow belt of NE Ohio and after watching what everyone up...

    Come to Charleston, SC - not on the Gulf, but at least by the ocean. And not as many hurricanes. It is not a huge h/j or professional mecca yet by any means, but it is growing... We moved 30+...

    We have 4 fairly young Section B Welsh stallions. I am assuming you are trying to breed for hunter types. You need to be very careful in your choice as not all Welsh ponies have hunter type...

    My guess would also be placentitis even without seeing a thickened placenta. I would do exactly what your vet is recommending. If this is a valuable foal, the expense should be well worth it. I...

    We bought 70 acres on the edge of the Francis Marion National Forest just outside of Charleston, SC - it was completely planted in mostly 25 yr old pine - we had approx. 60 acres harvested and then...

    While I agree with Kryswyn's idea that if you are breeding your mare to get a pony, it should be a purposeful breeding in regards to discipline, but I dont agree with her calling our crossbred ponies...

    Sorry Tracy, but I dont agree with you on this one. While being downhill is not a positive trait, it is not always a terrible thing. One of my most successful show ponies is built downhill, but she...

    You might consider ulcers as well - we had one that had a very dull coat despite all kinds of great feed/hay/supplements, etc. Turned out it was ulcers and his appearance changed dramatically after...

    vxf111 - I too have been polite - not trying to be snarky or rude in any way. It is not just myself that feels this way - it is every other pony breeder that I know and that is quite a few - if we...

    vxf111 - just one question.... are you a hunter pony breeder? If not, then you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about... I am done trying to help you understand - only time will show the...

    Well, it is obvious that most of you posting are not breeders. Most (not all) of the top ponies are top of the line - not because they are necessarily the best, but because that is what is in...

    What many people are ignoring and what will never change is that when big money is involved, there will always be people that want to bend the rules just a bit. Look at the owners of most of the...
