    So I have a 15 year old paint mare. I have owned her for 8 years and she has always been pleasant. She has never been mean or aggressive in any way shape or form. She was a barrel racer/games/speed horse for about 6 years and now she has mostly just been doing like trail riding and I just...
  3. Horse Training
    My 11-year-old Tennessee Walking Horse mare, Jubilee, sometimes reaches her neck around and nips the toe of my boot. Sometimes when she does it, it's after I've told her to stop when she wants to keep on going - almost like she's trying to get my feet to signal her to go. Other times, she...
  4. Horse Training
    A friend at my dressage barn rescued a paint horse mare named Ellie from an abusive situation about a year ago. The vet says that she is about 6 and it is clear that she was previously ridden western, as she quickly and attentively responds to neck reining cues. When she was first brought to our...

    I need some help with what to do with my 6-year-old mare. I've had her for about 7 months and she's made a lot of good progress considering her shady past. She's very sweet and smart. But when dinner time rolls around she gets super pushy coming in from the pasture. It's pretty typical horse...
  6. Horse Breeds
    I am picking a subject for my dissertation and was wondering if there was anybody out there with the knowledge on why some mares grown tushes? I am researching to see if hormones play a role, as my mares has them and my vet asked if she was quite dominant. This left me to the presumption that...

    I have this one mare and when she goes into heat she turns into a brat. She'll buck,kick ( not at people but if you walk behind her on a horse she kicks),when I saddle her she lie down with the saddle on. So I stick to ground work and avoid riding her till her attitude is better. Just want to...

  9. Horse Talk
    As some of you know, I am between states right now. My parents live in Texas, while I spend half of my time there and half of my time in Arkansas. My mom & step dad just bought a place in Texas that has a few acres on it, and they are talking about buying me a horse to put on it. While my mom...
  10. Horse Talk
    A little (ok a lot) of background...I'll do my best to condense this :? I moved to a new barn a week ago with my mare. I wanted her to be kept out with the herd because she has lived in a herd from the day she was born (not the same one mind, as she was moved when she was purchased, but always...
  11. Horse Training
    In October I purchased a 4 year old warmblood x thoroughbred mare. She is very sweet, and WAS quiet and well behaved. Not spooky, very calm, nothing fazed her etc. For example: I was having a lesson while a tent was being put up in the arena - tarps flapping, poles clanking and she didn't bat an...
  12. Horse Health
    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 Pictures
    These were taken from 2005 when we first bought her through 2012. You can definitely tell the younger pics from the more recent. The one that shows her "paint" is WHY she's a Paint. The only time you can see that is when she's wet. People think I have a different horse...LOL :D This was...
  14. Horse Breeding
    We have a mare with only one functioning ovary. We've had her vet checked and the vet has explained that the mare comes on heat, but only goes halfway into heat. From researching I have found that mares with one ovary are very fertile, and I have been wondering what is the best way to breed this...
  15. Horse Training
    Sooo, is it just me, or do mares seem to just hate being told what to do? I ask my mare to trot and she pins her ears back. However, she does start trotting, so I don't think it's a total defiance issue. Note: she pins her ears when asked to trot both on the ground and under saddle. However...
  16. Horse Health
    Hi Guys, I just regiistered on here, and I was hoping someone more experienced with pregnant mares could help me out. She has not been purposely exposed to a stallion, but there are some in the neighborhood that may have gotten out and....you know. I know the only way to tell for certain is to...
  17. Horse Boarding
    Hi, I think I've found a boarding facility for my new gelding, has everything I was looking for and nice owner. However, all horses have individual small paddocks separated by post fences. The only one available is one between two mares. One mare is low key, the other one not so much. Do you...

    My family raised Spice(4) and Star(3). They are sisters and are registered with the AQHA. I have three young horses that I am riding right now and I just dont have time to work with these two. I have done ground work with them and they are going to be great horses :). Thanks for looking at them.

    Have you ever wondered what nature has in its medicine chest for moody mares? Often when we look at our mares that present with “mareish” behaviour we don’t immediately relate it to the human symptoms of pre-menstrual tension, but in fact it is very similar. Just like humans, mares can suffer...
