  1. Horse Breeding
    Hi everybody!! I was going over my calendar and getting vaccines together and it hit me that I am 50days away from the first 2021 foal being born. So its more than time to get a thread started for the crazy 2021 foaling season. It should be a really fun one. My business is finally getting some...
  2. Horse Talk
    Soo....I did a thing.... A lady that boards at the same stable I do has 3 mares at her property that had foals. I went and saw said foals. I got my heart stolen by a little filly xD So, meet Melody. She's a quarter horse and in these pics when I first met her, she was only ten days old...
  3. New to Horses
    Hello! I am relatively new to horses. I have grown up around them, but never had one of my own until now! I rescued a 2 yo quarter horse stallion (was actually gelded today) and he stands about 13.1 hands. I was hoping he would get a little taller, as some told me he would. But today the Vet...
  4. Stallions and Broodmares
    Who's ur favourite Quarter Horse stud? I have a 13.3hh Boonlight Dancer x Dual Rey cutting mare who i'm looking to breed this year. The foal would be an all-arounder/ranch horse so would like it to have a bit more size :)
  5. Horse Nutrition
    I'm trying to figure out how to best handle my gelding. He is an APHA 12-year-old. In the last few months, he has added on fat pockets. A bit of a crest, some pockets on his tailhead and a bit behind his shoulders. He is in a fairly active workload (ridden by me or my husband for 30-45 minutes...
  6. English Riding
    My horse is a former ranch/games horse from what I know of his history. I'm transitioning him into English since he moves like an English horse and has taken to jumping and dressage much more than anything western. He takes up contact well and rounds his back well - but only in a western curb...
  7. Horse Breeding
    So I've been horse shopping for a hot minute for younger horses to add to the herd. One filly I've been offered was bred for halter. Sire was Initials Only. Now I'm not really looking for a halter horse, and this horse even as a yearling seems to have all the hallmark conformation issues of AQHA...
  8. Horse Breeds
    I've been looking into getting a kiger mustang/quarter horse cross. She was an accident (breeder intended only to breed kiger mustang to kiger mustang, but his 20-something quarter horse mare made her own decisions and got in on the action). But I'm wondering if anyone has any experiences with...
  9. Horse Health
    Hi, I have a 21 year old quarter horse gelding that had recently started bucking, but only when he lopes on his right lead. Other than that he doesn't buck. He has NEVER bucked before this started. He is a barrel horse and very well trained. He is also quite the gentleman so the bucking...
  10. New to Horses
    I was trying to google swayback and the images that came up varied. Wondering if this mare has swayback. She is 10 yrs old, Morgan/Quarter cross. Her back looks a little more deep in person, but maybe I am paranoid a little? (I hope.) Also, she is spooky, and hard to catch, any tips for...
  11. New to Horses
    I am new to horses and in the search for my forever horse. I came across this quarter horse and havent met him in person but the owner sent me this picture. My question is, his hooves look very cracked. Does it look like just needing an appt with the ferrier or is this just a case of bad hoofs...
  12. Horse Health
    My horse is lame!! I have a 16 year old quarter horse who has the body of a 30 yr old. About 3 months ago we turned him out and he bucked and was running around and ever since then he’s been lame EVERYWHERE !! The vet pulled his shoes at first but that wasn’t the issue, then they said he pulled...
  13. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    I just wanted to pop on here and introduce myself and my mare ;) My name is Elizabeth and I am from Ohio. Currently we have one AQHA mare who is 5 years old and was, prior to us getting her, a broodmare. Next spring we will look into breeding her but through the fall and winter season she will...
  14. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi! I don't expect much because I know a lot changes with babies, but I'm interested in what people have to say about my QH colt, Luca. I am aware of the 3 day, 3 month, 3 year rule, and I have pictures of 3-day-old him (albeit, they're not good but they'll have to do) if you all were absolutely...
  15. Stallions and Broodmares
    Hey everyone, I'm tentatively looking at buying a 2 year old paint colt by Leo's Gallant Ghost out of McCue's Last Girl. I'm not at all familiar with paint or QH bloodlines but I'd like to find out what the lines were bred for and if there's any other interesting info on them. He seems very...
  16. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I don't have any words to describe how much I dislike this. This is apparently saddleseat on stock horses or Appaloosa's (I don't even know). I'm not one to ever say that I dislike a discipline, maybe a lot of the people within certain disciplines, but I've never found myself unwilling to try...
  17. Horse Breeds
    I recently bought this 14.2 pony for $3250 and she has a great w/t/c and has started jumping like 2'9, slightly green. However, the seller was not sure what breed she was and did not have a pedigree. I was too in love with her to care but her coggins was registered under quarter horse but I was...
  18. Horse Training
    Hi all, I have a 2 1/2 year old Quarter horse (1/4th Belgian) mare and I want to get her into better shape this summer without riding her. At the moment she is overweight and gets 1 pound of Brooksfeed Enhancer a day (as recommended by Brooks nutritionist) and about half a bale of hay because...
  19. Horse Conformation Critique
    This is my mare Annie. She's a Quarter Horse cross, around 14 years old I think. I've had her for around four years, I traded my first horse for her. She is super sweet with people, but doesn't like other horses much. Anyways, I just want to know what you guys think of her conformation. Also...
  20. Horses for Sale
    I am searching for a Grulla or Dun horse. Mainly Grulla, I would like to trade for my Blue Roan Quarter Horse mare. She is not registered, but had the paperwork to do so. Previous owners would not get into contact with me to get it. She is 4 years old, 14.2hh. Very safe, level headed horse. I...
