  1. Other options...besides a bucket

    I have horses at a barn where they have a large tank they fill in the truck bed and drive it to the tanks and gravity takes it from there. Then they park on a hill to empty the tank for the next...

    Ordinarily I don't worry about too big foals...and Irish Draughts can throw nice tidy easy to deliver foals for the most part...but a few mares and stallions can throw very leggy large jointed foals...

    Rats I lost my post. I would not worry about the double Skippy this has been done before without reported problems...it is a good way to get movement. The issue would be that BFD throws some very big...

    We have 3 approved mares who were shown as hunters we were given. 2 with options to take a future foal, 1 with no options requested but I paid to haul her to Minnesota. All 3 are very nice mares. One...

    The visibility of new young stallions is very high. They have been perhaps in young horse sales, approvals and shows and there is a lot of buzz about them. They are often "winners" at that level and...
  9. I have one

    I made contact with the owner of a nicely bred approved Selle Francais mare here in a very similar post. She was ready to retire her at 14 and I was willing(and excited) to assume her care and use...

    Selling

    The real issue is not soundness as very likely he will not be unsound because of the lesion...not to say he couldn't find something else to be a problem as he is a horse after all...but the important...

    Yes the chemo(Cisplatin) beads will be sewn in. The tumor was 95% removed but he didn't want to go deep and risk involving the bone of the tail. There is a 2 inch by half inch raised tumor right...

    I have a 14 yo mare and her 9 yo daughter who are both carrying melanomas...mostly under their tail. One tumor under the older mares tail was just removed it was large...a big mans fist...and she was...
  14. Too Low

    I strongly agree with the net too low people. That is just asking for trouble and those nets themselves will not break if they are hung up on a shoe...they are made to take the continual pull and...

    I don't think they "grow out of EPSSM, they grow INTO it, but I think even when we didn't know it had a name people managed these horses by trial and error. Some things worked and some things didn't....

    No question

    EPSSM IS in warmblood registries but I don't think this horse is necessarily the right horse to use to "out" individual warmbloods with as she has 50% unknown breeding. We know that heavy drafts have...
  17. Very important

    I had a preexisting steel barn and for that barn I put up 3/4 inch plywood where ever the horses could reach the steel as when it was built they did not back the steel and it is steel to the...

    I think you are all not considering that these horses are not bred for you and the horses that you might breed are not for the people who want these crosses. There are a number of things that do show...

    I would even go bigger than 3 times that size. 15 feet deep helps a lot with the bugs and even deeper would help more. They need true shade to get relief from the flies. For snow they can do just...

    The only risk in general with dogs and that general size predator is that spooked horses might run. The damage is done from the senseless running not the killing. The fun for the dogs is getting...

    Horses, and humans too, naturally push into pressure. Consider you are given the end of the rope, told to hang on to the rope , you will sit back and pull to retain your balance. If you are being...

    They are very different breeds and very likely you will not enjoy one and very much enjoy the other. Friesians are pretty(most very) non-reactive. You might find that one of the Friesian crosses...

    I agree that is bred for more in GB and Paints. Sport Horse breeders in the US and Canada, if they breed for color, don't then cross them on greys...most want the color to stay not fade away. In GB...
