    I start by feeding the foals in stalls adjacent to their dams and then gradually increase the time they spend there. By the time they're 7 or so months old and have spent a couple of months in...

    I will preface this by saying I know nothing about racing and or racing predigrees, but as a long-time breeder of warmbloods I think just looking at the mare (or the stallion) limits the conclusions...

    See if you could still get some Olympic Ferro semen.... he's not known to produce size and needs a more modern mare (i. e. TB) to really bring out his strengths (power, strong hing leg, etc.). Just...

    Have been doing this for years successfully with both, mare and foal loose in a box stall in the trailer (I have a 20-foot stock trailer devided into two box stalls). Only way to go as far as I'm...

    Spunky - that is one of the big reasons breeders would like to stay in touch! Yes, I would definitely want to know about offspring that come up with hereditary conditions, especially since I had my...

    I've been breeding horses for 30 years and have found that the 80/20 rule applies to your question.... I know how 80% of the horses I bred are doing and have varying degrees of contact with their...

    Most horses in this area will test positive for Lyme, but that doesn't mean that they have symptoms. So, if your horse has been vaccinated I wouldn't worry about it.

    I agree with Kyzteke and would like to add that the truly good broodmares are just about NEVER for sale. I retire mine once they have given me several good foals, and they live out their lives at my...

    I will never understand why some folks will voluntarily limit their choices of stallions by insisting on fresh/cooled semen, especially with a young, healthy mare.

    I've been using frozen semen...

    As a breeder of Dutch Warmbloods, I look for bloodlines in the mare that have consistently produced rideable horses with good gaits, and then I look for the same thing in the stallion. Power behind...

    So very sorry to read this, Alain and Gail! Soprano sired two very nice foals for me that have gone on to very happy new owners. Maybe, just maybe there is a Soprano son out there that will grow up...

    A 2-week old foal standing tied?? Seriously? Why? As much as I believe in getting foals used to certain things like halters and leading and being touched all over, you can also overdo the...

    Go to the respective websites of the registries you've picked. They will tell you who their members/breeders are in the different states, and then you can get in touch with them.

    Good luck!
