    Apparently you did not see Challenged's pedigree. He is by Unbridled's Song out of an AP Indy mare.

    Thank you. "Challenged" is gorgeous and so are his first foals. We live in NE Oklahoma...Devon and Upperville are out of the question!! We're not newbies to breeding, raising, selling horses.We've...

    If you are breeding for yourself and/or have enough knowledge of conformation, type, temperament I'd breed her. You KNOW what you have, know what you want and know the best choice of a stallion to...
  4. I appreciate your comment, but I never once...

    I appreciate your comment, but I never once stated that we were breeding for the track or sales!! I specifically said we were NOT interested in selling for racing!! And FYI...this is not a "plain...

    No problem!! Our next door neighbor rancher grains his cattle year round and gets premium $$ for them. Most ranchers in this area who "grass feed" give no grain and it shows when you go to cook/eat...

    This is very true. The problem these days is that fewer people "can" or "want to" ride a TB. Back years ago a TB was the ONLY breed of choice for the show ring. I have literally owned dozens of...

    FWIW...Challenged broke his shoulder as a suckling. Healed, was broken to ride and trained, but not raced. He is sound, nicely broken and has no soundness issues. Thanks for all the responses.

    Just note...Not all painted TB's are created equal. We breed for quality...not the color.

    Challenged's Dam is by AP Indy...still a pretty good sire as I recall. I'm not offended by any input...I know TB babies aren't a hot item these days...we sell our 3/4 TB, ISH's a lot faster than the...
  10. Thanks for the input. I've kept the details...

    Thanks for the input. I've kept the details vague...I hate getting banned!! Dam is a painted TB out of a respectable bloodline. (Full sister to Jagged Illusion and another mare who sold for $25k as...
  11. What's the "going price" for weanling TB's these days??

    Hope this is vague enough...Not currently weaned/for sale/pictured anywhere, .... Gorgeous headed, correct conformation, dark seal brown/star TB filly o/o a painted TB mare (dominant white), but no...

    IMO...."THAT" is what mini's do!!! I used to have a small herd (4-5) mini's in a 25 acre pasture with 4 geldings of assorted ages. My feed buckets were placed too high in troughs for the mini's to...

    FWIW I had to put down my Border Collie/JRT Sept. 20 after fighting a benign, reoccurring oral tumor. She had surgery 3 times in the past 5 years. Each with good success and I think she enjoyed...

    Great advice!! I lunge and long line extensively when I start horses. They are taught to bend and circle, stop out on the circle and back before I ever mount. Carrying a rider is a big enough...

    Thanks. I'd love to do it myself...I've got the whole thing planned in my head...committing it to a site is the issue. Do the folks at Weebly have techs you can "talk" to??

    So sorry for your loss. There is never a good time to lose a good horse, but be thankful you were "there" for him.

    As I age..."older", "steady", "ready to go", is my first choice. I've done tons of schooling over the years...now I like "turn-key", automatic transmission!! I think you will appreciate your...

    THIS explanation nails it!!! We haven't had a good piece of beef...or pork either since moving to Oklahoma 9.5 years ago. I can't tell you how many pounds of "prime meat" I've cooked up and fed to...

    Even aging horsemen who are becoming obsolete faster than ancient???? That kind too??

    How about someone who will commit MY web ideas to a new farm web site??? I have a current web site, but am changing sites/business name due to relocation and need a web designer to do/redo my site. ...

    More hay/bulk!! If the barn won't feed more hay...buy alfalfa/hay cubes and soak before feeding. Your TB horse needs MORE food!! And I'd can the muscle builder...I've never seen that do any good...

    The boot suggested is a Davis Boot. They work well and stay on. Another thing you can do is paint the bottom of the feet/soles with DMSO and cortisone. THAT will draw the soreness out very well. ...

    IMO...it is because Show Hunters are based on the "traditional" foxhunting protocol. Snaffle, Pelham, double bridles are the bridle of choice. Jumpers and eventers are left to be more...
