    Many blacks are born a silvery gray or pewter color. That does not make them a temporary "gray."

    As before. one parent or more MUST be gray for a foal to be gray.

    The prices for the mares were quite depressing. I don't know. I guess if I am willing to give away a mare, I would rather choose who gets her and not bother with getting a few thousand dollars for...

    Most true black horses are born pewter colored - almost silvery. Your foal would need one parent that was gray in order to be gray. No gray parent, not going to be gray.

    Gro N Win would not be a problem. It is actually formulated to be fed to easy keepers and would be fine for a mare that had previously foundered. The problem is the amount of extra feed the mare is...

    Good for you for perhaps giving those mares other options. I am not saying the Fjord mare cannot be a success, but ET holds so many risks, best to start with the best chance. Good luck !

    Shipping embryos is done all the time. I would use an experienced vet at both ends. Your repro vet can ship to a clinic that keeps a herd. I have used Peterson and Smith in Ocala very successfully. I...

    The ideal ET recipient is between 4 and 9 years old, has had one foal, has the same body type as the donor and has a very good reproductive exam.

    I would not use your Fjord mare because of her...

    ^^^^ This. If you can find a ration balancer meant to be fed with a grass hay, you will have a very good choice. I have fed based on that formula almost all of my breeding program (1998-present).

    If you are stuck with Foal Lac milk replacer, it is still doable. I would order some Rejuvenaide from Progressive Nutrition or some Buckeye Foal Aide and give it to the foal. I could not get an...

    At seven weeks, I would keep her on milk replacer (Buckeye, Progressive Nutrition, Land O' Lakes are the better ones). You can either bucket feed or rig up an igloo feeder. When the baby is about...

    ^^^^^ This is true. All my Fidertanz offspring added quite a bit of substance to the mare.

    I would use leather halters, not tie anyone and no wraps on mom. Have shipped mares and foals this way many, many times. I am sure there will be lots of opinions on this, and some will vary from...

    Another tip, never let anyone but close friends, family and your mirror hear you whine. Do not tell the world that no one will come to see your horses. Instead just keep telling them how wonderful...

    I also think that it makes a lot of sense for the OP to be doing exactly what she decided to do - take her foal to GOV. That avoids getting the mare inspected twice and makes great sense since she is...

    Incidentally, the last (and first) time I spoke to you, you called me asking me some questions...

    Oh my. I much prefer a long, well thought out post that is crafted in a tactful manner any day over brief, snarky ones.
