    I meant they don't have many bad genes as far as I know. She has a round bale that she has constant access to.

    Are you prepared for the possibility of a OLWs foal?

    Aint that called 'line breeding'?
        05-16-2013, 04:19 PM
    Yes I am prepared. And im not sure.

    No, line breeding is not this close in relation. This is inbreeding.

    What kind of hay is it and I would feed the mare some grain along with supplements. She is going to need them now and when she does foal.
    I usually don't sweat about a mare foaling by herself but in your case with this mares condition I would really try and be there in case of any emergency.
    Just because the sire had good bloodlines and is sweet natured does not mean the does not carry something like HERDA, HYPP or lethal white.
    If he is only a carrier and shows no signs he might have passed this on to his daugther. Toghether the two have a greater chance of passing along something than two non related individuals. Good Luck Shalom

    I think coastal? She is fed two and a half scoops of 12% sweet feed in morning and afternoon. He has bred with her full sister also and the baby came out white with a brown face and butt, she's kind of slow though. The previous owner wasn't very responsible, as you can tell.

    Feed is meant to be fed by weight and not scoops. Also I would be putting her on something designed for mares and foals, not just "sweet feed."

    My vet just recommended that feed and he said scoops? Ill ask him about it later.

    Right on all feed bags it states what the feed ratio is per weight. Plain 12% sweet feed is nothing but horse "junk food."
