    I must respectively disagree and even rewatched the video after reading your post. First, I never tie a foal. IMO that is a recipe for disaster. I also do not force the holding of a foal leg...

    I have a mare that poops along fence lines in 4 or 5 discreet sections. My neighbor asked me why I was making manure piles along the fence lines and I told her I wasn't, that is just how she poops! ...

    I am really upset to hear how not concerned the vets were! If I made a mistake like that in my practice I would be doing things for reparation. Yes, mistakes happen, but it is my responsibility to...

    I can only speak of dressage YH trainers, but for me a lower level show career is essential. For example, the trainer I will be sending my horse to next year is fairly "well known" in my region for...

    I hear the folks that feel sorry for the loss of life. I don't even believe in the death penalty. However, if someone dies in the act of committing a brutal crime I feel no empathy for them, it is...

    I am not a stallion owner, but I think most N. American stallions get between 5-20 mares/ year. Really popular stallions may get more mares for a few years while they are "hot". Average stud fee...
