The mare that is foaling is Sheza Nita Dancer. Her mom is a money earning TB racing mare that was imported from Washington and Nita's sire is a foundation Quarter Horse. WFR Lil Hanock is the daddy. I will for sure keep you updated. I have a feeling she is going to foal tonight...**cross fingers** I hope so lol.

We have never had distemper at our farm. It was only where I was boarding the young ones (thank goodness I dont' have to board anymore) but it was about 3-4 years ago. Alot of horses actually died there. Once I noticed my colt had distemper I never moved him I just practically moved into the barn to take care of him.

My2Geldings - I'm not boarding at the moment, am looking to board at an acerage where I'm training a horse... I used to ride just outside of Priddis at Blue Spruce Training Stable...where do you ride? Very neat to meet a fellow Calgarian!! (We've been having such nice weather the past few days, training has been awesome!!)

FGR - Definitely keep me posted, and post pics asap!! You're very lucky to not have it come through your barn... and I'm glad your horse made it through alright. My friend (whose gelding reacted to the antibiotics) just about lived at the barn, and I swear the gelding pulled through just because he didn't want to leave her..

I'm just south of Calgary.

Do you have your own place that you keep your horses, or do you board/take lessons at a barn? If so, what barn? (I've shown all over Calgary and area, so chances are I'd know it :))

I've shown all over Calgary as well, I ride Hunters. The stable I traine at is actually brand new. Just south of Okotoks. A Hunter/Jumper barn. The owner/trainer does Grand Prix, originally from California.

Haha nice.. what's the name of the barn? I promise I won't stalk you...

To tell you the truth I can't even remember. I can give you the name and number of trainer tho if you are looking for a great facility to ride at. Its a matter of time before they start up a waiting list.

Haha I'm working my way up to being able to affoard a really nice barn again... :(

Most barns now only allow you to board if you are part of their training programs. Very few stables allow to board giving you the freedom to do what you want which means you are looking at at least $1,000-1,300/month. If you can find a stable that lets you do your own thing it can go anywhere from 280-650/month depending on what kind of board you use for your horse (indoor/outdoor).
