  1. Horse Conformation 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...

    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...

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...
  6. 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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
