    It seems our newly acquired pony mare may be in foal. When we got her we knew she was a little tubby. We've only had her about a month. I kept joking she looked pregnant. Weelllll. This weekend I noticed her belly was oddly shaped, and running my hands over her I noticed she had dropped weight...

    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...

    We rescued a 2 year old filly in mid April. Mid to late June and into July we gave her SmartMare Harmony Pellets by Smart Pak because she seemed grouchy and uncomfortable. We just gave her the 2 months worth. We just now learned that the poor thing is pregnant!! She is just a baby herself...

    Hi all, I have tested my mare with the WeeFoal 120 test this afternoon, I followed the instructions but I can't tell whether this result is positive or invalid? I have emailed the company to ask but I was wondering whether anyone has used one before and if so what do you think of this...

    Hello! In January I rescued two mini mares, one pregnant, one possibly pregnant. These poor girls had long feet, lice, and one of them had a large infected injury. The man who worked at the auction was told that the palomino pregnant mare was due in February, which turned out to be false. Now...

    This is somewhat urgent as I need to buy hay asap, it all seems to be going fast in preparation of winter now. But I've been searching for a good quality grass hay for a broodmare and can't find anything without fescue in my area. So looking for an alternative I came across round bales of...

    Hello I have about a 3 year old mare whom I don't believe has never foaled before. Her tail end is very squishy, her bag is a little swollen, her nipples are almost pointing straight down instead of inward, her milk is light lemonade looking, and her private is swollen but not completely droopy...

    I was wondering if everyone could shed their feeding/ diet plan for their pregnant mares. What brand and type do you feed to your pregnant mares? How much do you feed and when do you start to up their diet? Any info on this topic would be great! Thanks!

    My mare is in heat and got into the stallions paddock. No one was home while she was in there so I'm not sure if he got her or if he did, how many times. Is there anyway I can tell before the next time she comes into heat? If she is pregnant any vitamins or supplements I should put her on?
  15. Horse Training
    I purchased my mare when she was 1 1/2 years old and have broke her and have been doing light trail riding and ring work since. She is now turning 4 years old. This summer (now that I am confident she is almost fully grown) I had plans to start her with some barrel racing training, as this is...

    I just bought a mare 3 days ago that was supposed to be in foal. When I went to pick her up her previous owner informed me that he had seen his stallion cover her about 2-4 weeks ago. She had been in the pasture with the stallion since she had foaled 8 months ago. He said that she should have...

    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...

    So, there's a STB mare that I am considering going out to look at. She's a rescue, been through multiple homes. I was told that previous owners had a stallion that got loose at night and was in with the mares, while this one was in heat. No one "saw" anything happen but there's a chance. This...
