    Both but for very different reasons. Chipping is great for tracking and tracing an animal. Branding is a visual deterrent as well as good marketing and advertising. The horse is a walking billboard.

    Bayhawk, have you heard anything about Ramiro blood and OCD or other ailments?

    Hmmm, good point Stoicfish. I am thinking of putting some Ramiro over an all-rounder/dressage mare. Not set in concrete as yet.

    I am looking at possibly using a Ramiro son. But I'd also consider having a daughter/granddaughter in my broodmare herd.

    I have also heard that they are either liked or loathed! :)

    I love this mare. Long legged, great front, sturdy. The kind of old-fashioned stayer that is getting very hard to find.

    I'd breed this mare in a heartbeat. I'd use something fancy to get an...

    Good on you for having a go. At 31 weeks pregnant I was very reluctant to do any of what you're doing. Go girl!

    No help on freeware video making I'm afraid. I use Photoshop Elements9, pretty basic but more than ok for making horsey marketing videos.

    Didi, this is what I was thinking too.

    Perhaps the mare owner would allow you to take her and the foal to your pre-arranged stables, until weaning when she can be returned without her foal?

    And... I'd clip him. I have done this a number of times with foals that don't quite finish shedding time for inspections/shows. They look sleek and very polished. And very...

    I suspect that all horses will end up flea bitten if they lived long enough. I just think the greying process happens at diffeent speeds for each individual. Homo greys tend to grey out the fastest.

    I agree with JB. Here I am trying to work with a newly haltered 7 month old colt. It's like trying to subdue a marlin on your fishing line! Very unpleasant for everyone.
