  2. Suggestions for Contucci/World Cup IV/MatchoAA Hanoverian mare....

    I have already made my breeding decisions for this year so of course that means it is time to start obsessing over next year's choices. :winkgrin:

    She does lay down to sleep - she only does this when she is napping while standing. I do have the vet coming next Friday to do teeth so I will get her input on it.

    Otherwise she seems normal.......
  4. Filly leaning butt on wall when resting - should I be concerned?

    I have a 2 year old filly that prefers to back herself up against a wall when resting/napping.

    I noticed it a few months ago when we moved her into one of the larger "grown up" stalls, but she may...

    For Arab or Arab crosses I would definitely recommend the Thorowgood Broadback (aka Cob) saddles. I tried many (many!) saddles before I discover the TG BB - and now someone will have to pry it from...

    My favourite bridle to date is the Harry Dabbs bridle I bought 13 years ago for the following reasons:

    Thanks but I live in Prince Edward Island, Canada so I am not close to any of those places. It would be cheaper for me to put together my own band of recipients. ;)

    Thanks for the advise...
  10. ET newbie - questions about recipient mare and more...

    I have decided to do an ET of my Contucci/Wold Cup IV mare in 2015. I am a complete newbie to this so I have much to learn. :yes:

    For the first mare Hilltop Farm has a collection of Hanoverian stallions with great hips - but Bugatti comes immediately to mind.

    For the second mare you have lots of options. I can suggest two...

    Thanks

    WOW - all of the above. Taking my feet out of the stirrups is how I relieved the pain and was able to ride the last mile back to the barn. Probably why bareback does not bother me.

    I think the answer to your remark is that a horse is the sum of all their parts. If the horse has a weak loin they may have another strength that compensates - sometimes it is sheer strength of...

    He is super cute! I like him a lot, but all of the bucking between fences is a bit concerning! Fun to watch - sort of like Zucarlos - but I wouldn't want to be riding him. :eek:
