Here's mine, she's into the GOV MMB.
Barbarees Hill by Matter Of Honor out of Hippic by Briartic.
Yup, I've done that type of crazy stuff as a teenager with my faithful equine companion. Good times. :yes:
I'd do it again. ;)
Wow!! What a fantastic tool! I'll be checking it out!
There is most certainly no harm is getting her or keeping her in shape, all with depend on her level of comfort.
For instance, I just started riding my mare again, after about 3-4 months off,...
I found that having April or early May foals is the ideal situation.
My mare is miserable in the heat, so foaling in April means that the foals is already close to 2 months-old when we hit most of...
I have coated wire and I have seen numerous times a foal goof around it and get tangled up or run into it and they either a) bounce off, b) untangle themselves without any loss of hair or c) if they...
Love Blume Farm's reply. :)
Though have you thought that maybe you are getting asked about their breed because they are actually lovely horses and not in a negative way?
Often, if I ask the...
You know, if your old mare really likes the foal and doesn't bother the real mother, you can leave them together...
My girl goes back out with her foal with the others and foal gets raised in a...
As I don't have dozens of options, I will put out my weanling with the previous year's foal. BUT, both horses know each other from birth, the foal is turned out with its dam with said yearling.
No, slight toeing out wouldn't concern me.
Re. trimming, our foals get looked at by the farrier every 6-8 weeks from the time they are born, but very seldom will you do a true trim before they are...
19. My first foal was born 4 days before my 20th birthday. Best birthday present ever. :)
He's out and about being adored by his new owner and I get regular updates. I'm 28 now. :yes:
Or you could go in-between and buy a custom-foal or in utero. Breeders often allow a payment plan in these cases and it would allow you to "play breeding" without taking on too many risks.
They will register the foals out of TBs, but they won't inspect mares anymore. They will gladly give their foals Reg. A papers (or Vb papers if I am not mistaken, it'll depend on the status of the...
KWPN won't look at TBs, they'll look at their foals once they are old enough for studbook inspections.
CSH is a good registry and is most appealing to Canadian hunter breeders as you can show your...
Woot woot! :D My mare IS tail male Northern Dancer on top of her excellent damline. :P
Great news!! :D
When and if you mare seems in distress. :) Mares routinely go over 340 days and there's nothing to worry about. Be strong!
Best wishes for the mare :(
Ditto what has been said already, plus, you don't exactly want to teach your foal to go under fences... ;)
I haven't bred a stallion yet, but it seems to me that the stallion-prospect ones don't lead to questionning whether they are "it" or not. They should stand out, IMO, no?
Jingling for you. :(
That's a funny coincidence, I just did a quick photo shoot of my yearling today!
Here he is today: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151577314909171.1073741827.320210999170&type=1
I also think your foal looks just normal. :)
I can't testify to the large foals, but my mare typically makes "small" foals at birth and they mature to normal heights for their breeding. But they are definitately smaller at birth.
