This is probably going to come off worse than I mean it so....sorry in advance, but why is it you bred her so much when you have all of these flaws identified?

BINGO. My other question is, why breed her and then ask for a critique on her? Shouldn't you know her faults before you replicate them?

I just want to know why you would continue to breed her when you NOTICE her belly dropping/stretching further each time....

Let's not bash. Although I don't agree with the OP's decisions, what's done is done. Yelling at her won't change anything.

You DO need to find a farrier. Soon. If you don't like the one you choose, look for another.

Well, lets put it this way.

My LOVES fluffy mini babies. He bought a mare...and a stud. Made some babies and sold the stud this past spring.

My vet has seen her, but has never mentioned anything about it. We're getting her teeth floated so I'm going to ask her about it.

On the topic of her hooves, yeppers. I've been in contact with my vet for recommendations and I've called around for the farriers of various breeding facilities. I have quite the list to call and weed out whether or not they do minis.

No it won't change the past, that is done, but maybe people are hoping to change the future?

If you post in the critique section you are asking for feedback, and you are going to get positive, negative, knowledgeable, ignorant, useful and downright dangerous comments, advice and suggestions, that is just the way of message boards.

It seems that the OP here is happy to answer questions and talk to people, I'm sure that she is capable of asking people not to yell if she thinks they are.

OP is correct on finding a farrier who will work on minis. It breaks your back and there is a few around here who won't touch 'em.

Nobody's yelling, lol.

I'm a big girl and can handle forums. Plus, everybody is being civil.

People poke me, I'll poke back. People push, I'll keep poking. Lol. I try to be constant and put a smile on. Maybe even laugh a couple times.

The internet is no reason to get angry over; like most people do. Especially when it comes to critiques.

I asked for a critique to see if anybody could see anything that I couldn't. At the moment, everybody is just asking normal questions. That IS expected of a newbie.

(Note, that was directed really at you Golden Horse. Mostly to ilovemyPhillip...indirectly at least. Lol)

Heck. This thread is tame.

@Freda, could you explain what an ABD ligament is for me?
