    I adore Winning Mood! I am no show jumping expert that's for sure, but I love watching this stallion. I'm sure there are more talented and/or scopey jumpers out there but Winning Mood's 'ponyish'...

    I'm not a pony breeder so I can't make specific stallion suggestions but having looked at the photos I have to say I'm not loving the hind end on Sprocket at all, and it looks like your mare's...

    The worst dystocia I have seen involved a foal wedged in the pelvis. Ended up cutting the foal up and very nearly losing the mare too. She is unable to breed again. Horrendous experience. Sire was...

    The world's your oyster for the Bella mare. There are plenty of gorgeous Hanoverian approved stallions out there with fab temperaments and excellent rideability that will not mess with her beauty and...

    I'm with Simkie - I don't like the sound of this. There are so many lovely youngsters out there with sound rads. I would be disinclined to buy this horse, especially with resale in mind. At the very...

    On the flip side I have a 9 month old precocious filly that is all too willing to let the not-yet-two-year-old colt in the next paddock do the business with her! All was well, the youngsters were not...

    Oh my dear, I feel your anguish. I can't be of any real help here except to say YOU DID YOUR VERY BEST. And don't you ever forget it. You hear?

    So this was some time ago? The mare that was PG'd had a healthy foal? And now you'd like to know if this happens very often, and if there may be growth or development issues because of it?

    If you speak of the F-line today you are assumed to be speaking of those from Furioso, not the old Werther-turned-F line. It is definitely not the same thing even if it feels similar under saddle :)...

    Her feet clearly need some protection from wear and deterioration. The best shoe for this is one with plenty of support i.e. steel, wide webbed, plenty of heel, and a decent thickness. This equals a...

    I have Floriscount and Quaterhall on my list for the coming season too. Both are equally well suited to the mare in question but for some reason my leanings seem to be toward the F-lines. I have...

    'He passed away peacefully in the stable he was born in...' This struck me. How many elderly horses can this be said of? Great horse, great life, great owners. RIP.

    I agree. Her 'roundness' is not due to her pregnancy at this point. I'm not sure what the sensitivity is but would assume it's not pregnancy related either. But I can't say that for sure.
