  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello all, I needed advice and help on an issue that has my mind occupied for some time. I am working a 10ish yr old saddlebred mare for a family member. Her history is relatively unknown as she was a rescue, but we have come to the conclusion that she had foaled before and most likely was used...
  2. Horse Breeding
    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...
  3. Stallions and Broodmares
    So I’m on the hunt for my forever horse, and this pretty little Appaloosa came up, only downside is she’s pregnant atm I was just wondering how you take care of a pregnant mare, foaling down, raising the foal etc (I do want to get into breeding in the future so sort of homework for then as well) Ty!

    I just adopted an ex broodmare back in January so I'm new to this side of the horse world but have been involved with horses my whole life. The mare has an (almost calcified) buildup on her vulva... I can clean her up several times a day which helps with her itching out her tail but it doesn't...
  5. Stallions and Broodmares
    My mare is due April 22nd and this is her first baby. I decided to put her in a paddock by herself so she could get used to being alone. Her paddock is right next to the pasture the other horses are in but it's a big pasture and if the others go far away enough that she can't see them she freaks...

    I just wanted to pop on here and introduce myself and my mare ;) My name is Elizabeth and I am from Ohio. Currently we have one AQHA mare who is 5 years old and was, prior to us getting her, a broodmare. Next spring we will look into breeding her but through the fall and winter season she will...
  8. Horse Breeding
    Hello, my beautiful mare is in foal to Contenda, by Contendro I by Contender. This foal is hopefully going to be one talented horse. This thread is just for updates, on both the mares pregnancy and then both the mare and foal after birth. I found threads like this to be really helpful as I...
  9. Horse Breeding
    I recently bought a Mare from a kill pen that was bought from a Indian reserve she is strongly suspected to be in Foal and I have little doubt she isn't haha. She is a wide built one and actually came in very fair condition well fed and good health! Shes also halter broke and very sweet...
  10. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    This is somewhat urgent as I need to buy hay asap, it all seems to be going fast in preparation of winter now. But I've been searching for a good quality grass hay for a broodmare and can't find anything without fescue in my area. So looking for an alternative I came across round bales of...

She has looked like she is about to pop for a month now lol still waiting to see this baby...But I'd like some others' thoughts on her and the stud she is bred...

  13. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Okay, Bluegrass is an 11 year old broodmare that I recently rescued last August. I'm not sure if I want to breed her again this year (she is in foal for 2014 and it will be her 8th foal). Nothing physically seems to be wrong with her. But...she is SUPPPPPER shy. When I was able to spend time...
  14. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello all! I was wondering if I could halter-break a broodmare that's never been messed with before? Everyone says she's just a big pet and nobody will ever be able to mess with her. But she's already following me around the pasture, and I see a lot of potential in this mare. What do you think I...

    Broodmare is 10 years old and weanling colt will be 5 months on the 20th of this month. I hadn't seen my horses since the Mare foaled in March since I live quite a distance from the farm they were on. My husband and brother brought them to my farm 2 weeks ago, they were underweight (more like...

    Tari is a 5 year old Buckskin mare - broodmare sound and leadline sound only. I am just putting out feelers to see if anyone would be interested in this beautiful girl. I bought her 6 months ago and was going to train her to be a lesson horse; turns out she has a dropped hip and will not stand...

    I have a mare that had foundered 3-4 years in a row to the point of unsoundness but only affecting her rear feet a little. I bought her this last summer and put her on a diet and excersise regimen. She is doing terrific and we are able to ride. She is in amazing shape but still on limited...
