    I think the bottom line is that if you aren't comfortable with it, you shouldn't do it :) If you're stressed and anxious, it's not going to be a fun experience, no matter what!

    I've done the 12 hrs with a foal as young as 3 weeks before. If I had a mare that was a complete freak about being hauled, then I probably wouldn't drive that far. But here in the Midwest, we don't...

    I think, in general, this is an area where people tend to worry too much. There have been several times that I've had to haul mares w/foals to an inspection site 12 hrs away (from Missouri to Texas)....

    I hosted what was essentially a private inspection a few years ago...just one outside mare. So not the first time, but I certainly doesn't happen very often. I usually drive to Texas for an...

    Update on Missouri Holsteiner inspection site! Location will be Fisher's Stable in Sedalia, Missouri on September 12th. There is limited stabling, so if you are planning on attending and haven't...

    It's ok; we can agree to disagree :) As I said, I'm not attacking the line...I like the blood. I'm not sure, though, why you're singling me out, though? I certainly am not the only person on this...

    I also have a ton of experience breeding with the Galoubet blood, but not with BdR. I had a direct Galoubet daughter for years and had 5 foals from her, three of which were daughters (one I still...

    1. No foal/horse is perfect; that's not attainable and if that's the goal you will be unhappy.

    2. No one can predict how a foal is going to mature...believe me. They all change incredibly, some...

    Yes...sorry for the typo!! It should read "due to lack of good type". Darn phones....:)

    Quality Time frozen semen?

    Has anyone here used frozen semen from Quality Time (standing at Nijhofs) or know of any pregnancies conceived using his frozen semen? Thanks!
  11. Holsteiner Inspection in Missouri *UPDATE 7/15

    I will be hosting an AHHA inspection on September 12th, in Sedalia, Missouri. If anyone is interested in presenting mares/foals, please let me know ASAP, either here, or via call/text at 660-441-5002.
  12. I agree with most of the information here....

    I agree with most of the information here. Baloubet, as his sire Galoubet, is known to be very difficult and hot. When Baloubet first came on the breeding scene he was ridiculed as a breeding...

    I had a Larimar foal this year, but obviously can't speak to rideability yet :) She is sweet and easy to get along with, as most foals are. I liked the Larimar's I saw in Germany, so I decided to use...

    I would not double up on Pilot if you really want something quiet, although there are other horses in the pedigrees here. I have had a lot of this blood in my program, and I love it, but I love it...

    This would be my bet, too.

    But to answer the question, no....identical twins would not behave or appear any differently on ultrasound. They are two separate embryos, and would appear the same as...

    No. The mare did not have only one embryo. Even if it was truly an "identical twin", the splitting of the embryo occurs prior to even the 14 day check. The division occurs very, very early in the...

    True "identical" twins, i.e. twins that developed/split from a single embryo have been reported in horses, but literally only a handful of times. It is extremely, extremely rare. I would not diagnose...

    Statistically research shows that foal heat breedings are just as fertile as other breedings, AS LONG AS ovulation occurs no sooner than 10 days post foaling. In other words, you really want a long...

    I can honestly say that top bred jumper babies are selling like I've never seen before. I had 6 available this year for sale in-utero, and only one is still unsold. And that's using only Facebook,...
