  1. Horse Talk
    So I've got a mare that I rescued back in September. Since then, I've bonded quite a bit with her and I honestly adore her since she has a golden personality. This mare learns FAST and once she knows what's expected, she does her best to please. Not only that, but she's incredibly sweet. She...
  2. Stallions and Broodmares
    We are thinking of breeding our Welsh/Connemara/Shetland Cross in a couple years, but I was just curious how much taller the stallion can be to the mare? Our mare is currently around 12.1 hands and is 2 1/2 years old, I'm thinking she might grow to around 12.2 or 12.3 still, not much more than...

    HI! I have a 20 year old Mare in my farm. When she was younger my family hired a trainer to teach her to be comfortable with riding and people. However, they had a really aggressive approach making her anxious, she fell trying to escape and had a slight injury. She's all right now, but she is...

    I have a mare that any time she is anywhere near other mares NOT part of her herd. She "teases" them prancing, squirts, winks, and displays as though she is in estrus. She also seems to really have the attention of our neighbor's mares all of which are breeding stock with them seemingly doing...

    I'm not sure how many of you remember since it's been several months, but my grandma took in an auction rescue horse around October. For those of you who are new or need a refresher, here's a quick summery. A mare who was nearly skin and bones with last years winter coat still clinging to her...

    Things have taken an interesting turn lately. I have a mare that I've had troubles with off and on throughout the last year I've had her. So now, this last month or two, I've been considering retiring her and just letting her live out the rest of her life in peace. She's only 15 which I know...

    Well, the time has finally come that I'm going to be moving my mare to the stables. I had hoped the one pen would get cleared on the property so that I could work with Roxy at home, but that doesn't seem to be happening so I got in contact with the barn owner and she told me I was allowed 2...

    At my barn there is an 18 year old Appaloosa mare that for one reason or another I have fell for. Sadly her original owner passed away unexpectedly and she’s just been at the barn. I have done a lot of ground work with her and I can say that the previous own did some work as well. She is voice...

    I recently stumbled across this trainer and her method of working with horses which is something i haven't really seen before. It looks pretty interesting and I think it's the approach I may need to take with my mare Roxy since she has a similar personality to that show jumper in the video. I...

    Howdy, Y'all. So, I got this 2 horses on a meadow, they are a mare and a STALLION. They are usually separated but last night she broke free and we came a lot later. The stallion was acting unusually calm once we took her away and the mare's tail was wet. The thing is, that mare was in...

    G'day. I'm looking for ideas of tricks to teach my mare. I'd love it if people could comment some trick suggestions and best methods of teaching said trick/s. Would love some tips also on learning to ride bareback. I have never done so before, but my mare just broke her saddle and it'll take a...

    My 8-year-old mare is currently out of work due to a sore back, and will not be ridden for about a month before starting walk/pole work. I thought that this would be a great time to bond with her and do lots of groundwork. Freddie is the definition of a mare, and is prone to dramatic mood...

    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...
