foals

  1. Horse Talk
    First off- a tip to parents. If you plan on getting a horse for your child, don't get a foal when they are still a baby. On paper, it sounds good ("aww, they'll grow up together!), but you have no idea what they like (they might think your favorite color is the ugliest thing in the world, ect )...

    I have a foal that is hand raised and tends to buck and kick out at times. Usually before as feed or when she gets excited. I guess mum would nip her and put her in her place. I feel she calls everyone's bluff. Any suggestions
  4. Horse Breeding
    Hey! As I am starting to get ready for foaling season at my barn, I`ve been lurking around this forum reading all the old foaling threads (and also noticing there are no new ones for this spring? Fellow backyard breeders, where are you?!). So I figured that I need to make a thread for my two...

    I have a foal who is really struggling. DOB 04/17/2016. Needing so advice! Classy is having a hard time. Long story short: Classy had a great start to life and was a very normal foal. She got cut July 4th and was stitched up, still was doing great. Cut the same leg in the beginning of...

    Hi am about to start a F. Jadalco cross Riverman foal. I have heard that Riverman produces more difficult foals but was wondering if anyone has had experience with them and what they think. But, I am really interested to know if anyone has had expierence with the Dutch Jadalco stallion and his...

    Just would love if you could critique these cuties confirmation! These are not my photos, but they may or any not be my foals soon. Let's keep our fingers crossed! Well, what do you think?
  8. Gaited Horses
    I was wondering if there is any way at all to see if my TWH mare has had any foals in the past. I have tried contacting the owner, but he doesn't want to talk to me. Thank you for helping!!!
  9. New to Horses
    I have a 7 year old quarter horse gelding in a 1/4 acre pasture. My mom wants to get an 8 month old foal that she has had her eye on for months. Is it safe to put such a young colt in the pasture with my gelding? If not, what age would I introduce the colt to his new "herd?"
  10. Horse Trailers
    We have two pony mares and foals that we are needed in transport to another pasture 40 minutes away from their current pasture. The mares are both quiet and have been in the tralier a lot. The foals are almost 2 months old and partially halter broke. What is the best way to trailer with both...
  11. Horse Health
    Hello all! I just joined this forum, it's nice to be around horse talk again. I've been around horses since the age of five and haven't wanted anything else. And right now after moving with my fiancé we are looking at buying a new horse for me. (My old pony was sold two years ago when I began...

    I had the vet out a month ago to preg check my mare and she said no, I'm wondering if its possible for them to be wrong sometimes? My landlady said that they had a horse once who the vet kept saying no and that she wouldn't catch because she was so overweight. So everyone pitched in and took...
  13. Horse Training
    Hi everyone. I've noticed on many of the foaling threads that it is quite common place for breeders/foal owners to start training their foals very early on. Be it grooming or halter training. As I left England when I was 15 I can't comment on practice there, however here in New Zealand it is...
  14. Horse Breeding
    I am the proud owner of a Holsteiner mare. When I bought her I was told that she had had two foals in her lifetime. Being the curious soul that I am, I'd love to find out more about my pony's babies. I've tried using the AHHA site to no avail. Eventually I'll probably just have to get in contact...
  15. Horse Breeding
    I currently have a youngster, rising 2yo standing at 15.1 to make 16.1. However, I have now got the baby-bug! I am interested in breeding a foal of my own, rather than finding one that has already been born who fits my criteria, but as I do not have a mare who I could breed from - and I am not...

    Here's my 16hh Appaloosa x Oldenburg, BJC Padma Escapade. Her sire was 17hh homozygous black Oldenburg stallion, Gatsby. She turned out black with molting, striped hooves, very few faint snowflakes, annnnd the rat tail. :) She's super cute... not to mention, a beautiful mover. I bought her...

    This is my filly we call Hope, but her show name is "Oh Happy Day". Her dam was my Secretariat granddaughter that we sadly lost to EPM when Hope was only 3 months old. This is a photo of this filly at only 3 months giving a morning stretch! I just adore this girl! She is by my APHA black...

    On the advice of my vet, a farrier who specializes in lameness issues checked out my three month old AQHA colt today. Tuff is a rejected foal who has been raised on milk replacer and a combination of milk pellets and Omelene 300. This farrier regularly takes care of horses costing $200,000 and...
