    I don't know about 3000 but he was available frozen also. This would make it hard for the owners to track all the info. As people noted, he bred mainly Oldenburg mares.
    Another way to look at is,...

    Easy keepers are harder to ensure they get everything they need. But all the nutrients and protein are the main concern. Ribs are fine but I do not like it when the youngsters have no muscle and a...

    This was on a thread a while back but since it has come up again. Foals are not able to process cellulose, so that is most of the material in hay and grasses. They eat it but do not get much out of...

    If it were that important to use their stallion, I would board the mare and foal close by for the breeding. Just pop the mare over and bring her back afterward and then bring her home with foal when...

    I think you might be anthropomorphizing her behavior. Chances are it is a real physical issue. Animals do get depressed but not very quickly or easily. I would call the vet and look for a cause.
