  1. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    Hello everyone! I have a colt who I feel is bordering being overweight. Unfortunately we got his mom from the feedlot, so we have no idea who the sire is. He is currently 10mo old. I only just now started feeding him grain (used the rest of our Buckeye Gro’n Win ration balancer, now feeding...
  2. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have an 18 month old curly-QH cross. He can be the sweetest puppy dog like colt you've ever met but he can also be a little terror. I got him gelded about 6 months ago and I was hoping it would be an easy fix to some of his behaviors but that doesn't seem to be the case. He loves chasing...

  6. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...

    Hi, i'm working with a 3 year old i brought home 7 months ago who was going to the doggers if he didnt find a home. so nothing is known about his background except he came from an overstocked breeder who got rid of a truckload of horses. all that was said is 'the lady was going to break him in...
  8. Horse Colors and Genetics
    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...
  10. 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...

    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...

  16. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...
