  1. Stallions and Broodmares
    We are thinking of breeding our Welsh/Connemara/Shetland Cross in a couple years, but I was just curious how much taller the stallion can be to the mare? Our mare is currently around 12.1 hands and is 2 1/2 years old, I'm thinking she might grow to around 12.2 or 12.3 still, not much more than...

    I have a 13 2 maiden cob mare that I am breeding this year. I am currently looking at two stallions that have been recommended to me by friends/neighbours. One is a 16 1 Thoroughbred stallion and the other is a 17 hand draft stallion (RID). The owner of the draft is willing to take her for...

  4. Horse Breeding
    Hi, I have a 13.2 Irish cob (aka Gypsy Vanner) mare whom I am thinking about breeding. I want to keep her bone and structure but add some height and a little more athleticism. She's 10 years old, good confirmation and jumps like a gazelle. However she's a little on the short side and built like...

  6. Horse Breeding
    So, as some of you may know, I recently got a new horse. He's an 8 year old thoroughbred gelding. I've named him Samual (Sam). Now, this boy was never raced, but he did live on a race track for the first few years of his life. So he is registered under the name Kings Gold Ruler. I don't know a...

    Howdy, Y'all. So, I got this 2 horses on a meadow, they are a mare and a STALLION. They are usually separated but last night she broke free and we came a lot later. The stallion was acting unusually calm once we took her away and the mare's tail was wet. The thing is, that mare was in...

    So, I currently have four Tennessee Walking Horses. One stallion, two mares, and a gelding. Yesterday (May 31,2018) we put one of the mares out with the stallion to breed. They had the normal interactions yesterday and last night with the 'flirtations' and all that. Today, however, we made the...
  10. Horse Breeding
    All, I've seen posts similar to this in the archives but none answer my actual question. I'm finding myself in a rather unfortunate situation which I'll try to describe: My quarter horse mare was supposed to be inseminated by an Appaloosa reining stallion via frozen semen. I already have a full...
  11. Stallions and Broodmares

How soon will your vet know if your mare has taken? 4. Do you have any tips or tricks the help make sure...

  15. Horse Training
    I have 3 Stallions which I have had since they were about 1 year old, I wanted to keep them entire since they have a very good lineage and I think they will be good breeding horses. I only really have time to ride one so a friend of mine rides 2 and I ride the other one. First off as stallions...
  16. Horse Breeding
    My mare is a 16 year old Brandenburger with a pretty sick pedigree (Quando Quando, Shickeria, Akzent II, etc.) We imported her from Germany as a 7 year old and she's turned out to be everything and more for me, she's the most beautiful high hunter ever!! I've been thinking of the possibility of...
  17. Horse Breeding
    :cry: I am new to the forum, and I Just wanted to say for the "breeding" record that there are tons of horses ending up at slaughter. Now, as a horse lover, this is a very sad truth. Please think before you breed. With the way the world is going, there as so many people and so many unwanted...
  18. Horse Law
    Hello! I would love any information regarding equine breeding laws and statues, more specifically who can breed horses. I know, at least in the Midwest (Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas) it is legal for you to breed your own horses (AI, ultrasound, give meds, etc.) However, I was wondering what the...

    Planning on breeding a Welsh Sec. D/Trakehner cross this year. I have seen a lot of the Welsh/TB cross or Welsh Sec. B/Warmblood cross but I haven't seen a lot of Welsh Cob/Warmblood crosses. Does anyone have any opinions on this cross? What should I expect? Pictures would be great if you have any.

    Good Morning, I am on another thread about my mare, Shine and Spin, having a baby, but I wanted to start a thread about monitoring equipment. I would love the foalert equipment, but I probably am not going to be breeding much more then this time and it seems cost prohibitive. I heard that you...
