  2. Stallions living out with their mares and foals?

    I've read a few threads on this but needed to give it a more personal spin to see if anyone has some input on this.

    We have a stallion here who is a great guy. He was living in a stall all the...

    Since he's not mine and I'm not even really allowed to do so much as give him a bridlepath, I don't think the owner is going to go for that idea! :eek:

    (Trust me, if he was a mare and not a...

    Slightly off topic but yes, they will. I've only personally known one that I felt strongly was "wired wrong" but the owners never did a necropsy to find out. She was a 3 year old who aggressively...

    Taming the totally pathetic long mane

    I've got the ride on the most awesome Andalusian stallion ever. He's just great. He lives outside 24/7 with his girlfriend, and he is a SUPER happy guy with that arrangement. He is cheerful and...

    I should think so! Yes, you'll probably want a crupper. I also imagine you'd want to do extra desensitization to dogs, as many mules have a real problem with them, and the hounds dashing up might...

    Help me brainstorm: Fencewalking stallion

    I need some brainstorming help!

    I am currently leasing a stallion who is home at my property. He is 14 year old and fully aware of what he is packing though he is quite easy and gentle to handle....

    I think it just depends on where you are really - in New England I had friends shelling out $400 for 4 simple steel. It was a VERY good farrier mind, but even the not-so-great farrier charged $200...

    I love this product so far. Our resident old cripple who doesn't have a lot of coffin bone left is getting around better than I've ever seen her going in these. She did very poorly in the SoftRides -...

    Yellow discharge post-foaling

    My older mare foaled on the 23rd - BIG healthy filly. Everything textbook. Today the mare has blobs of yellow discharge. Her temp is normal, she is eating/drinking/acting totally normal and fine....
  11. What to do without a regular available navigator?

    I'm a newbie to driving - just did our first HDT and had a blast! I begged and pleaded and got a friend to come be my navigator (this is Training level of course) - she had a blast too. But, there's...
  12. Pregnant mare day 312 suddenly got SUPER studdish?

    Presumably this is just a surge in hormones but my heavily pregnant mare suddenly is SUPER CRAZY studdish. Like, flehmen response, nickering and huffing, licking and nibbling, grabbing crests and...

    I think there is also some aspect of stallion socialization that is often missed, and both mares and stallions suffer for it. Valuable stallions are usually kept isolated, so when they go into that...
  14. Favorite baroque-build old-style Morgan stallions

    I'd love to see some of everyone's favorite old-style compact and thick Morgan stallions that are currently alive and standing - ones with less Saddlebred influence. Ones bred more for sport outside...

    BWP stallion Lasting Impression

    Does anyone have any info on the BWP stallion Lasting Impression? I know he was standing somewhere for awhile, but I heard he was sold to an ammy (?) and fell of the face of the earth. Is he still...

    Yes, there is triangular bracing and additional framing that isn't really visible in that picture. This model is made locally and are pretty popular in our area, simple but sturdy.

    It does have a tree in it - it's an older Smuckers pleasure harness.

    As a quick clarification, she doesn't get rubs anywhere from her harness - she is just a very very thin skinned and thin coated redhead. She gets raw rubs between her legs just from her own skin...

    Thanks!
    I think you're right, the floofy fleece breastcollar pads look weird and cheapy. The harness in question is a very old nice Smuckers, the style that had the big flat strap of unpadded...

    Really and truly, it depends on the dog's personality more than the sex of the dog. We had four spayed bitches live harmoniously together for years, including one very grumpy elderly Corgi - they...
