  1. Horse Breeding
    Hello all! I’ve had my mare around 9 months and she has taught me so much in such a short time I have outgrown her, since she was born and bred in a station she doesn’t have much education and is getting on in years and her arthritis isn’t getting any better. But I feel like I don’t want to sell...
  2. Horse Breeding
    Hello everyone! Planning on breeding my horse in may! I have a few questions. I have a great mare. She’s older now, but used to compete in the 1.05 jumpers. She still can clear a 3’9” fence, but we stick to the .80s-.90s now. She is pretty athletic, fast, and has great stamina. I have big dreams...
  3. Horse Breeding
    Hola, My gorgeous hannoverian mare just turned 13 this year. She is my soulmate, she took me from jumping baby heights to grand prix levels. She was always healthy, the vet only visited to deworm, give her the shots and to float her teeth. Around february, it all started with a swollen knee. We...

    Both bred the same day on august 2nd AI at the repo vet clinic. Both these pictures were taken today. Bottoms ones confirmed in foal. Top one was said to not be in foal when they were both checked at 14 days but was pretty uncooperative. Do you think top mare is pregnant too? Both ottb mares...
  5. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    I have a very talented mini mare. If she were a full horse she would be one in a million. She is around 40 inches at her withers. I’ve always said how it’s a shame she’s not large. I had this idea. I would never jeopardize her comfort, so I thought maybe we could take her egg, and a 17+ hand...

    If you bred a Peruvian paso with a paso fino (2 gaited horses with completely different gaits) would the foal have all the gaits? Some of the gaits? None of the gaits or 1 set of gaits from 1 parent?

    Hi, kind of silly question. Background: My 16 year old Spotted Saddle Horse mare is currently in foal to a SSH stallion. She was bred on May 7th, 2021, and is due in or around mid April. She has foaled before, but I don't know any details as this was before she came to our farm (we have also...
  8. Horse Breeding
    Good evening all. I have a friend getting into the breeding business and it's got me thinking about things which have led to some questions to do with breeding that I'd love to find some answers to. 1. Grade mare or stallion producing registered offspring? Basically, I've heard with certain...
  9. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    Hi All, First time poster and just picked up this rescue boy and looking for some advice. I’m faced with a horse that has a odd body shape and I’d like to know if you think this is because of some poor breeding (being his situation I wouldn’t be surprised) or if I can expect that with weight...
  10. Horse Talk
    My mare was just bred a week ago but I'm already getting excited about the foal and am trying to come up with names for it. I'm really hoping it's a colt so I haven't been able to up with any names if it ends up being a filly. If it's a gelding I'll most likely name it Slim for short. The...

    My husband surprised me with a beautiful mare for Mother’s Day. We got her almost a week ago and I immediately noticed her stomach when she was delivered and jokingly asked if he got me a pregnant horse. I’m going to share photos of her in January, 3 weeks ago and now. Am I crazy or does anyone...
  12. Horse Breeding
    Last month my mare had an ultrasound to see how her system was looking, only to see that she appeared to have recently ovulated a couple days prior. The plans to start the process of embryo transfers was moved from beginning of April to the beginning of March. Had an appointment today to see...
  13. Horse Breeding
    Hi everybody!! I was going over my calendar and getting vaccines together and it hit me that I am 50days away from the first 2021 foal being born. So its more than time to get a thread started for the crazy 2021 foaling season. It should be a really fun one. My business is finally getting some...
  14. 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...
  15. Horse Breeding
    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...
  16. American Quarter Horses
    Who's ur favourite Quarter Horse stud? I have a 13.3hh Boonlight Dancer x Dual Rey cutting mare who i'm looking to breed this year. The foal would be an all-arounder/ranch horse so would like it to have a bit more size :)
  17. 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...

  19. 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...
