Please take note of that. Foals are uber bendy and often scratch their faces with their hind legs - VERY easy for a hind leg to get caught even with a well-fitting halter. That halter is very, very dangerous.

I would also invest in break aways. One foal at our barn didn't have a break away and caught his halter on a fence. He ended up breaking his neck. Mind you, this was years and years ago. Since then we never turn horses out with halters. Only if they have break aways, and it's normally supervised.

ANYWAYS - Adorable babies!! I think babies are the most wonderful things, aren't they?

Personally, I'd just leave a halter off. Even with a leather crowned breakaway, if the foal gets its hind leg caught up, there might not be enough force to snap the leather.

the only reason the halter was on was so i could change her bandage. It never stays on when we are gone. Never. Ive had many babies, since my parents raised them, trust me i know better than that. And that is the only halter we had laying around the barn that was remotely close to her size, and i needed some way to hold her still while i bandaged her up. I have foal halters on order and in the mail since that is a weanling halter and is way to big for her tiny head.

Anyways, what happened last time was my bf and me broke up, i had to sell my horses because they were at his boss's place. We are back together now, and the babies are at his boss's place again. There are no worries that they will be sold, because they wont. I have an agreement with the farm owner, as he did not know the story last time, and he said the barn and pasture is pretty much mine, so come and go as i please, when i please and that the same thing wont happen again.
Ok, enough about that, its over, done with.

Trouble's mother was born solid bay, and as you can see in the pictures, she looks nothing like a solid bay. Im not sure what Classys mother looked like, because she had been sold by the time we picked these two up. Once I get their papers, I will post their bloodlines and such. I dont know either of their mothers registered names, but their sire is YOR White Hot. Hes a beautiful boy, i got to see him in person when we picked these guys up, and he is stunning.

Just saw your new thread: https://www.horseforum.com/horse-bree...r-appys-95427/

I have to ask--have they seen a vet? What are you feeding them? Have you wormed them? They've lost a lot of weight, condition, and "healthful luster" since you've gotten them....

After I saw this, I looked at the new thread. I completely agree with bubba. Their coats look dull and you can see ribs coupled with belly size, those babies need dewormed.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

They were both wormed about two weeks ago with safeguard. The vet is coming out this afternoon to check them both out.

For feed they are on grass all day, plus they get grain and jr mix everyday. They are both eating very healthy, have access to water at all times.

I will ask my vet his opinion and let you know what he says, thanks for the concerns. Sorry i havent been keeping up with posting back replies, ive been really busy. But i will try to keep everyone updated.

Sounds like you are doing what they need. Glad the vet is visiting, much easier when you can see things in person. You might ask about doing a fecal and seeing if there is something the safeguard may have missed. Good luck with them, they are cuties!
