    My colt is an "only" foal this year and he and mom are out with two other mares (that don't have foals). The "aunts" are very quick to nip/correct him. They have chased him but not very far. It...

    I bred my favorite TB mare to a young 6 year old jumper named Diabolo D'Esquelmes (Chin Chin) for a May 2016 foal. She was an eventer and that is the goal for the baby, but I wouldn't be...

    I already have good fitting boots and other accessories. I'm not rich but I'm the queen of buying and selling used tack, so as I look for black stuff I will sell off my brown stuff. I admitted...

    Everything in moderation; and also each situation is different. For me - I creep feed about 1/2-1 pound of soaked feed per meal, in the foal's own bucket, and I tie up the dam with her own food on...

    Yes it's a jumping/XC saddle. I think right now it looks a little weird with my medium brown straps. Havana might look better, or maybe just go all black and call it a day.

    I know it's a silly...

    Can I ask a dumb color question

    I bought a black saddle - it fits me, fits my horse so I disregarded the color when purchasing. It is used and older so a bit faded. Question is, should I upgrade my breastplate and bridle to...

    First, to answer your question, no this is not common. Prices may increase for sure, but usually it's because the horse has something to add from the time it was originally advertised - like...

    Use warm water, that will help. A gentle soap like Ivory or even baby shampoo is best. Apply, leave on for a few minutes, then rinse off with a sponge.

    I personally hate the look of pulled/shaved/cut tails. Yuck.

    I like a thick natural tail. I only cut the bottom if it's really uneven or dragging on the ground.

    I wrap it the night before...

    Waps Rolls Royce has his own FB page if you want to see pics of offspring. I'm a fan, I think he's a nice stallion. If I thought there was more of a market I would breed a TB mare to him. His kids...

    Yep, done. :) All 3 mares are now out together with mom and foal. For the most part they leave him alone; occasionally they feel the need to get snarky, pin ears and chase him off. It's not often...

    I had a Connie/QH cross a few years ago that I evented BN and eventually sold to a fox hunting home. He was not "hot" to ride at all - very willing, good jump, spur/stick ride. He was relaxed in...

    On topic but I have a question: would you put a 6 week old foal with mom out with another mare that has front shoes? I've been hesitant about this. Mare with shoes is mellow, not a kicker and not...

    The Tipp ones are longer and will go to your belt, but they are not approved. I have a Racesafe and it is also short in front; but not as much as some others that I've tried on.

    I agree it...

    Well you have a whole year to decide. Lots of time to research.

    First, decide if you want fresh cooled or frozen. More stallions available for frozen but obviously a bigger vet bill.

    Second,...

    My Connie/QH cross was fun and brave to ride but would blow up at every little leaf that crossed his path. That being said, I've seen WH Topgun in person and he's totally awesome.
