    There are a decent handful of Negro foals/pregnancies here in NZ. I'm unsure about the number of straws used but I know the breeders were pleased with the quality of the semen.

    Ah yes Kyzteke - you summed up me and my grumpy-faced mare perfectly! A LOT of foul facials until she 'agrees' that what you're doing is ok with her. To the uninitiated it looks very scary indeed. ...

    I have an adult faux-dominant mare here. Completely bottom of the pecking order with the horses. Totally herd bound, hates disruption to the norm, such as horses coming and going. She is an...

    It is important that you refer to your horses' colour by the correct term. It is misleading to call them Overo. APHA currently has no tick-box for Dominant White so they are incorrectly lumped in...

    Crosscreek, it may pay you to make a cup of tea and settle into reading one of the many well-written equine colour genetics blogs. The info may be a bit dry but just chew off a bit at a time! :) As a...

    JB, how do you know what Extension the DW is linked to? Is it different for each horse, each DW variant (e.g. W5, D15, etc), or is it 'unknown until it's known' by looking at a number of offspring...

    I find it helps to not lift the leg too high off the ground. Try trimming the hoof with the foot lower, toward the ground and not pulled all the way up near the belly. It's not as easy for the...

    It seems that mares can drop another follicle shortly after ovulating, and if there is viable sperm still present it can be fertilised. These secondary follicles must be difficult to see/assess...

    I have done it both ways. I leased a mare when I was starting out because I could not afford to buy this level of quality. I have also leased out two of my mares to two different breeders.

    Friend's mare foundered post-foaling. Suspected that it was actually underway before foaling but mild and not pick up. Foaling was uneventful, no retained placenta, but she foundered badly. She was...

    It's a bit hard to tell from a sideways photo. He does look a little fuller through that area. I don't know that much about how roach backs develop but I'm very keen to learn from others that do.

    Thanks for the explanation re the rope. I can see how this could work, expecially with the right kind of mare.
