  1. Horse Breeding
    Posh was bred last year and had a baby "Gagnam Style" aka Psy. I didn't keep a documented thread because it was under a breed lease (they use my mare, but keep the baby for themself) but I do have pictures. I will be breeding her in 2017 to Dynamic Breeze, and be keeping that baby. Definitely...
  2. Horse Training
    My pony (saffy) was well cared for as a foal with her old owner until they couldn't look after her anymore so gave her to their friend who also had lots of other horses. She didn't really have time to bring her on much, so just put her in a field for 2 years, not teaching any ground makers..etc...
  3. Horse Breeding
    My new Filly is a half Friesian, a quarter Gypsy Vanner, and a quarter Percheron. She was born at 2:30 on Tuesday, May 12th 2015. She is a Mousy Grey with a bald face and four white socks. She also has 2 white spots above her butt. I need help thinking of names!
  4. General Off Topic Discussion
    We have, within the last three days, added three new members to our herd. The first one arrived on Monday. He is our new bull which we 1/2 own. We'll have him for 6 months. He is two years old (I'm pretty sure..) and 1/2 Angus 1/2 Simmental. He's a big dude. My mom has already named him Simon...
  5. Horse Training
    My welsh section D has just turned 18 months old and i was wandering whats the best way to start her off? I have started with some simple groundwork, such as when leading getting her to stop when i stop and walk on when i walk. she seems to want to walk directly behind me all the time not next...
  6. Horse Conformation Critique
    This is Gunner, He's now a yearling and about 14.3-15hh right now! Sorry he had his head down in these pics... He was figuring out what to do since the rope slid down the pole :lol::lol: In the first one I caught him right as he was backing up, but to me it seems to be the most clear. I...
  7. New to Horses
    Hey everybody!! New to the forum and I'm buying my very first horse!!! He's a 2 yo gelding Quarter Horse / Paint! His breeder lives 4 hours away but we arranged to meet at the place he will be boarded at (SPCA Stables in Salinas, CA.) and I will pay her $250 for the trip. After I check him out...
  8. Horse Training
    Okay, my almost yearling has been doing fairly well when it comes to leading....except when he doesn't want to. He doesn't respond. I have been using the buttrope and is that a good idea? I'm just not sure how to go about "lead training". I feel like it is the MOST important thing to teach a...
  9. Horse Breeding
    I've seen a few growth and training threads. We'll let me give a bit if information. At the beginning of his birth I was devastated. I had ZERO time for any horse, I got injured and was on crutches and as soon as I was off of them, I was back on!! By the time I was able to get out and rough...
  10. Hoof Care
    Hello! I currently have 10 month old who since November/December has been seen by our current barefoot farrier. Another farrier who I use to shoe my current horse mentioned how short she is and that right now no damage is done because she is light, but she can go lame since she is being cut too...
  11. Horse Breeding
    My Shire mare has had her foal. I purchased her in late February. Ultrasound at the time was negative. Ultrasound 56 days later came back positive and the vet estimated the fetus age at 50-55 days, so we were expecting around January 27th. The first big ice storm of the year hit Dallas...
  12. Western Pleasure
    Hi, Im looking at a two year old and My trainer has actually had this guy since he was a baby and I remember him riding him only at 1 years old and now, as a two year old, he's almost broke. So basically what I'm asking is, will there be any problems with this horse because of being rode so...

  15. Horse Health
    I took off my 11 month olds blanket today and found a large bald spot on her butt. I left on her blanket for a few weeks because of the snow storm. Can anyone tell me what it might be and how I could treat it.
  16. Horse Health
    Well I got a bay QH filly a month ago, and of course she'll come with and get some scratches as she is a baby; I have a couple of questions though. She tried to jump out of the trailer and she scratched her forehead twice pretty bad, and I thought it should have been healed by now, but it is...
  17. Horse Grooming
    I have a 7 month old QH filly and I've had her for almost a month now and I'm thinking it's time to start training her to at least get used to the clippers and baths. Does anyone have any tips on what I should do to be careful when training her or if there are any tricks of the trade that you...
  18. Horse Nutrition
    Okay so yesterday I got my 5month old saddlebred filly, I was wondering if it's okay to feed her sweet feed. I don't think it would bother her because we feed it to my Hackney Quarter mare but she is a really easy keeper and gets fat very easily if we give her more than about a pound every other...
  19. Horse Training
    I am training a 3 year old Arab gelding. He is sweet and gentle but he get's very bored on the lunge line and some times it is a fight just to get him to complete a full circle. I try to do different things with him constantly and he has become quite attached to me. He is not my horse. I have...
  20. Horse Training
    I am in the midst of training a 3 year old Arab gelding. He has had no formal training before me, but he is extremely sweet and smart. We've been going for a few months now and we have made it to the bridle, but (go figure) he doesn't want to take the bit. Can people tell me how they go...
