    We have 3 mares saved from the kill pens of OK. There were 4 the stud died last march. To our surprise colt was born Aug of this year. My question is what temperature is to cold to leave the colt out at night? We have barn and can put them up at night, but they really prefer to be out in the...

    I just adopted my first horse: a 2 year old halter broke gelding from a rescue farm. His mother was a brood mare, and he was separated from her at a very young age and just left in a paddock to suffer from rain rot basically. Amazingly, he is a sweetheart. It's so tempting to spoil him, but I...

    I have a seven month old colt out of a black overo stud and a dappled bay Appendix mare (yes it was an uh-oh type of breeding). I can't decide if he's going to be a bay or he's just sunbleached black at the moment. He doesn't have fawn or seal points but does have some weird coloring in random...

    I have a 2 1/2 year old grade (Chincoteague pony x TWH) gelding who has come up lame for the first time ever today. I can feel some heat on the inside of his right front leg at the knee joint. I applied some liniment gel, stalled him and called the vet. I'm still waiting on a call back to...
  7. Stallions and Broodmares
    May 2014 stud colt. 14.2 right now. Extremely smart and easy to work with, and I'm considering keeping him as a stallion. Is anyone familiar with these lines? I know the OSU stud, and that the mare is from the Haythorn ranch in Nebraska. What exactly does that all mean, in terms of what he is...

    I got a pregnant mare (not a maiden) 2 months ago. She is 6 and has been a broodmare all her life. When I first got her she would let me catch her, halter her, lead her, etc. Then she started to run away from me. This may be because the one and only time I reprimanded her (with voice and a hard...

    So I bought an almost two year old colt yesterday, and he's a doll! He's a grade colt, so not registered with an breed association. However, he has a wonderful Paint coat pattern. I'm pretty sure I can register him with the Pinto Association, but it seems like everyone I've talked to has told...

  14. Horse Training
    I have been riding horses for 11 years and my dad just recently rescued a 4 year old colt for me. I wanted to know if we should get him gelded before I start training him or if I could start training before we geld him? At the moment he's only halter broke, but has better ground manners than my...

    I have an 10 month, almost 11 month old colt. We started late training due to several reasons I'll be posting here every time he advance. Right now, he's leading (not really wanting to), letting me halter him, picking up his feet, and backing. We've just started maybe a week or two ago and...

    Hi everyone, In 2012, I rescued a beautiful mini mare who had been badly abused and neglected. She was about to be sent to slaughter, when I threw her in my trailer and brought her home. A few months later I was surprised as ever to find out that she was pregnant. In April 2012, she gave birth...

    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...

    This is Thunder, our little 3 year old Dun Paint colt. Just the other day, while I was grooming him, I noticed a lump on his upper cheek. When I push on it, he pulls away from the pain, but doesn't mind if I just place my hand on it. At first, my fiance said that he might've just bumped his head...
