  4. 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...

    Please no negative comments, this isn't my horse. Long story short I came into the life of a mare and 6 month old filly. The owner knows nothing about horses, so I offered to lend my help educating him and teaching the filly and mare ground manners. The mare is great, a bit pushy but it's no...
  7. Horse Breeds
    Hey everyone. So I'm getting a 6 month old foal in the next week or so. However, the owners don't know her breed as her parents were wild and came from a reserve. So I was wondering what you guys have to think about her and what you think her breeding her is? I have a few ideas, like maybe paint...

    Well, this month has been full of lots of surprises and changes. A little while ago I moved into a cabin on my grandparents property who live out in the country. I also got permission to get a horse if I wanted. Well, I ended up finding a 6 month old filly instead. So I'm crossing my fingers and...

    Hey everyone! I just brought a nine month old anglo arab filly. I am new to training foals and would love some tips! What type of things should I be working on with her?

  11. Horse Breeding
    We got a Tennessee walker before our colt had been gelded, he has been gelded but before that they had been together. In the beginning both had shown signs of interest and the colt had jumped the fence one night and after then they showed no more interest. So we allowed them to stay together as...

    My foal is 2 weeks old and has been brought up on foal milk replacer as his mother died delivering her. She has a great appetite but when we put her out in the little paddock (30'x100') she doesn't know enough to run, skip, jump and do what a foal should. We tried a nurse mare but she rejected...

  15. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hi all.. I'm new to all the colour genetics of breeding horses but I'm searching for a Buckskin filly to buy and have come across an advertised buckskin filly.. But in all its photos it appears to have a white mane, but still slightly dark points and a dark tail. Will the mane darken in time or...

  17. New to Horses
    So I'm completely new to foals and my mare had a beautifully marked piebald colt. I didn't get too close to him till the day after he was born as his mother is very protective. He doesn't mind me touching him at his feet, bum or body but as soon as I get near his neck or face he runs to the...
  18. Horse Breeding
    Hello Friends, I would love some help and suggestions for weaning my 4 month old a filly. I really don't want to separate them b/c they are so sweet together, but I understand I should do it by 5-6 months. Any suggestions on how to do it would be greatly appreciated.

    My mare is a 16 year old Brandenburger with a pretty sick pedigree (Quando Quando, Shickeria, Akzent II, etc.) We imported her from Germany as a 7 year old and she's turned out to be everything and more for me, she's the most beautiful high hunter ever!! I've been thinking of the possibility of...

    Posh was bred last year and had a baby "Gagnam Style" aka Psy. I didn't keep a documented thread because it was under a breed lease (they use my mare, but keep the baby for themself) but I do have pictures. I will be breeding her in 2017 to Dynamic Breeze, and be keeping that baby. Definitely...
