    You are so level headed and open to discussion and advice...it is refreshing :) :)

    I know the desire to raise a baby. I have been involved in horses for 15 years, and just the last couple of years that has been a desire of mine. I kept working my way to younger and younger horses...now finally time for baby.

    By the way, how is the tail wrap working out so far?

    Have you researched HYPP? In addition to not breeding your mare, since she is positive for the disease she should be on a special diet to prevent her having episodes (which could be fatal). There are some good websites if you Google it.

    Bubba, yes I have done tons of research on HyPP. I know she should be on diet, but she hasn't had an episode yet so if it ain't broke don't fix it. She is doing well on the feed she's on, but I do make sure not to give her any treats with potassium in it. But I do appreciate your concern.

    AkPaintlover, the tail wrap is working great! I absolutely love it! I ordered a case of 18 hot pink vet wrap from countrysupply.com so I know i'll have enough if I need to re-wrap it.

    That's just the way I am. I mean I've been riding for 12 years,and owned a horse for 10 months now, and there's just so much I don't know. If I ask for advice, I have to be open to all possible answers. If I didn't want anyone's opinion, or asked a question just to be like "i'm doing it and I don't care what anyone says" then why even post.

    If it wasn't for all of you, who knows if my mare would be ok. And all the advice i've gotten has been great! I really appreciate everyone taking the time out to read my posts.

    I really commend you for your responses, appylover. You wouldn't believe how many people out there who think they know everything and won't be taught - they really get to me sometimes. No one know everything!

    I know exactly what you mean. People ask a question and when they don't get a response they ere looking for, they snap at everyone and that leads to many problems.

    She is getting a nice round belly...though she does not look at huge as I would have expected on her dainty frame. She get so impatient at feeding time now, and is just about impossibly stubborn when riding. I was on her the other day, walking around our field, and she backed up to a shrub with her butt and kinda leaned into it...she is acting so crazy :)

    I am getting so excited and impatient about the baby...the beginning went fast, but now I am thinking about it so much that I think I might lose my mind. :) She is due in late April.

    Thanks so much...I can't wait to see the baby. I think it will be cute even solid. :) (Aren't all babies though) :)

    oh of course! Every time I see a picture of a baby I'm like "you're so adorable!"

    I remember reading or hearing something along the lines of that everyone is drawn to babies because either of the smell that comes off of them, or their tiny little features. Not sure which one it was, but I found it cool.

    I can't wait to see pictures of the baby. That's gotta be so cool, to have a bond with the foal since the day he was born.

    I have a dog, who's 5 now, that I have seen him, picked him up and everything the day he was born. He's such a goofy dog, but very loyal to me.

    Good luck with Mom, Dad and the baby!

    When a horse inherits HYPP, they can have muscle seizures, if you like. They go into sporadic muscle tremors and some hyperventilate, others can't walk, others die. It all depends on what they do at that moment. But you would have to severely monitor the horse and constantly medicate, unless it was N/N.

    I know Harlee. I did a lot of research on HyPP and I know what could happen.

    Harlee, do you have a horse that is HyPP postive?

    You can read a lot online, and that does give you a good idea, but I spoke to someone who has had HyPP postive horses on a regular diet, and they stayed that way because they didn't have any symptoms. And also, Generally speaking, if a horse doesn't have symptoms when its young, there's a good chance it won't ever have symptoms. But that's only generally speaking. If I were to change my horse's diet, there is a good chance she would have an attack because of the change in diet.

    I appreciate your concern, but I've familiarized myself with Hypp ever since I learned that she might have it, and did even more when she came back positive.

    You asked, I answered. But no I don't, I did a very detailed report on HYPP.
