    Breeding is such a rewarding and scary thing. Only 9 days early the mother of this mare produced her 8th foal in 12 years.

    Thank you Texarkana. We don't have fescue in my part of Australia as anything other than a lawn grass and I've only ever read about fescue toxicity on forums/info sheets. But I will look into it to...

    Please which part of 160 foals over 40 years didn't you get ? I said the foal was being cared for (and yes it is very sick) - I am asking about the fact that the mare has no milk. If we are lucky...

    Early foaling - no milk

    Mare presented mid day today (Sunday 18th, Jan) with what I thought was the foal "moving around" - absolutely no mammary development. Mare service date was Feb 28

    Two hours later she was on the...

    Phyllis Lose DVM suggested that many distocias are the result of foetal contraction.

    So it might be possible that some mares are more inclined to supply their foals with higher protein levels...

    Having been exposed to the difficulties of the orphaned foals of "nurse mares' we decided we would raise our orphan by hand rather than pay for the use of a nursing mare.

    Poor friend. I wish it didn't cost so much to get horses from Australia to the US. Admittedly my fellow wasn't as well trained yet because he was too small for me so didn't get started until he was...

    Birch for the SRS I think. And green wood which is much more forgiving than dried. I don't like dried bamboo or fibreglass rod because I can be a klutz and I would hate to jab a horse with either....

    I Don't think that you can "longe" in a rope halter because the connection is in the wrong place and the contact can be too light. But you can certainly do a great variety of ground work.
