    Part of being/coming "on the bit" involves being engaged behind. While she might track up well at the walk, that is independent of her being able to flex her SI to tuck her pelvis under a bit to...

    Not breeding this particular mare would never be a regret. Her hind end conformation automatically rules her out as breeding quality IMHO. It would be far easier to regret bringing another one just...

    Arenas with good footing don't *have* to be dragged daily. Very often just a few days a week works well. Of course it's not necessarily quite that simple, but the barn doesn't sound big enough to...

    Having seen the picture now, I agree- those are not hind legs that should be bred. While many stallions could improve them, they are currently so straight that even an improvement is likely to still...

    Yep, I forbid :D this particular trimmer to come anywhere near Jasper or any of her horses. Strasser, Teskey, it's terrifying.

    I do love casting, it can be a life safer for some. But for feet like this, regardless of the IR/laminitis issues, I wouldn't cast at this point. He needs more frequent, light trimming than casting...

    $120 for a trim? WTH? Certified via whom?

    PM me her name if you'd like. Something sounds odd.

    Her price sounds like she doesn't really want to come for just 3 horses, but is willing to for...

    My guy had a whopping anaplasmosis infection (started with a 107* fever) and zero swelling in his legs.

    "The barn will be cooler" - that is a bonus for most horses! They are adapted to be much happier in colder weather than warmer. They have a large body mass to skin surface area ration, which makes...

    It sounds like a no-brainer.

    What's your hesitation about Barn B that makes you even wonder why you wouldn't go there?

    It will probably be helpful to know which side each of those stallions are, and how close. As in- post her actual pedigree :)

    Sometimes it makes a difference whether a particular stallion is in...

    Unlike you'll need to do anything, though of course it depends on his last deworming and, assuming you can get it, a record of his recent FECs. If he's been clean, and got Eqvalan Gold or something,...

    If the desert walking is soft squishy sand, don't do that either. If it's firm-packed, that's ok. He needs firmer footing for forced work for a while.

    When they are bred to be a realistic contender for WP at the top levels, this is how they look. To me they are all short-strided (that much is a fact, they simply don't track up), and look sore,...

    IME most of the "well bred" WP horses move that way naturally. I've never seen one, one considered a good upper level prospect (or winner), move in any way I consider free and flowing, or anything...

    I don't disagree that lots of trotting is in his future, but I very much disagree with starting it so soon.

    There is 1 big rule in fitting up a body - increased duration, or intensity but not...

    Oh the best WP horses are very much free-moving like that. They can't possibly be trained enough to win at any reasonable level if they don't have it in them already.

    So the video is almost 5 months old. Nothing there can be seen of the feet to know anything.

    I won't critique the movement, as I have a large dislike for WP and that bias will come through. At...

    I have seen the analysis of several Teff batches now and they are HEAVEN for horses. 5-6% NSC, and 12-14% protein. That's heaven. This makes it such that many IR Horses can have it free choice.

    Rye does carry endophytes - many grasses to. This particular endophyte is specific to fescue though, and I think only tall fescue.

    Yep, dump on top right before feeding, mix in slightly if that seems like it's just going to kill the poor pony :D

    Unless you need the long-stem fiber from the cubes, I much prefer pellets. Pound for pound they take less time to prepare, are easier to store, and take less time to eat,and are typically cheaper.
