I always worried that my 42 year old could choke on a grape or anything not totally mushy. He was totally toothless from the age of 38.
He loved his "blammies". Great old soul, still sound to...
You are two months away for the first mare...nothing to worry about. In my experience what you are seeing is perfectly normal at this stage of the pregnancy.
If you see a fast "bag up" (have you...
In my 30+ experience in breeding, I've found the mare to be more influential.
In fact, I asked Dr. Shidler (CSU, knower of all things breeding -- especially mares) about this many years ago. He...
Yes, getting to old for big snows like this. Plus it's time for me to downsize my big place. My sister (last relative) lives in Houston and I'd like to be closer to her. I have 8...
Thinking about moving me and my horses south.
Same story here, same snow totals but I have 8' drifts. Trying to keep all creatures safe but definitely not enjoying... 64 and doing this alone. Getting to0 old for this. :lol::sadsmile:
It's kind of silly to get attached to one weatherman you kind of like (or hate).
Just go to NOAH and also the "European" model of the prediction. They are the most accurate.
Unfortunately, the all weather pros have upped the totals...Yeah, I'm in 30" quadrant too. Horses are in and cozy, munching hay.
I'm hunkered down to save as much physical energy as I can...
It's supposed to be a very "heavy, wet snow" with some freezing rain mixed in at some point. That is what causes power outages. Hope the heck you are prepared for that possibility. Good luck!
Most of us in the bulls eye are doing prep for our farms and horses today and tomorrow a.m.
I'm not as concerned about the amount of snow (though it always makes farm work harder), it's always...
Just got an email from an ad agency I do a lot of work for (in Manassas), doing much the same thing. With snow beginning around noon, they're closing at 2 p.m. but have told those who have a long...
Easier to ride in mud with a hearty, fit horse, than 3 feet of snow for sure. Consider yourself lucky up til now.;)
This too shall pass. :)
I so wish I were you right now. :lol:
Mine is 20143...West of the city proper. Crap. BTW these are from most of the Accuweather and NOAH and Euro weather models (which seldom dovetails like this). They seem to be in agreement, so I'm...
I love a big storm as well...but not so much having to take care of 8 horses.;)
Right now, most models are predicting 2-3+ feet here. I hope they're wrong.
I KNEW we'd pay for this unusually warm winter thus far and our 73 degree Christmas. :(
Prepping for the worst and...
Woot! Aragon, beyond being the 3' 6" Open Jumper champ was also awarded the CHJA's "Horse of the Year" for 2015.
2 years in a row "Horse of the Year". :)
Kudos to Frances Wilson who bred him...
What Texarkana said, especially about a blood test at this point.
I've been where you are (including the use of prostaglandins which did not bring her back into heat). I had my suspicions...
I don't think there is just ONE book or even 2 or 3. But many, I posted my favorites having started this in the early 80's
That said, if you read them closely, you will see common themes among...
Basic Training of the Young Horse by Klimke
Centered Riding by Sally Swift
Round Pen Reasoning by John Lyons
Tom Dorrance's book (forgot the name) I'm old and it's long gone. :lol:
It's good that you posted here. Many very experienced people here.
I suspect some of the "WTF" per your post was just because few can believe this is even an option for your mare and cannot...
I've gotten a few very good things from Divosa for years. No complaints, good products (some we cannot find even here) and great prices. :)
