  1. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hi, all! I've done a lot of googling and looking at foal pictures, and I can't find one that matches mine, so I'm creating this post. Many apologies if I've overlooked something that's already out there! I have a filly who was born in May of last year (now 9 months old), and her baby pictures...
  2. Horse Grooming
    Hey guys! I bought my new mare in January. She was a pampered/stalled horse who had probably never had to grow winter hair in her three short years of life. I bought her from a trainer who needed stall space, otherwise I would have boarded her there until the weather warmed up because we don't...

    My horse's mane has done something so odd this year that it has never done before. His mane goes about 3/4 in length down his neck, so not real long. I don't brush it, do try and condition it with 'Healthy Haircare Horse Hair and Skin Moisturizer'. He itches it somewhat but not real bad just...

    Hi! I never had this problem in my old location (I moved last year to this icy, cold island) but I was wondering about what to do in the case of subzero temps when the horses are shedding out. My mare is starting to shed out with vigour and I'm a little nervous since we're still experiencing...

    I have seen this magical shedder on Facebook and the internet. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with it. Does it really work that well? Love to know before I buy one. Lisa
  6. Horse Breeding
    I have decided to breed my mare because she has a chronic lameness and is well bred. So, being that this is my first time breeding a horse and her first time "maiden mare". I have a few questions. To start: 1) Obviously, I will breed her early this year, but when? I live in upstate, NY; so...
  7. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hi! So my baby (Kasatka) was born almost two months ago (i don't have very recent pictures of her, but I can get some) Lately her ears and face have started to get black spots (as if she was shedding from a light bay, to black). Her legs are also really light (as were here brothers -a 2013...

    Hello, I came across this draft gelding today who has a very dull coat and appears to be having some issues shedding out (as evident by the large clumps of hair still remaining). I am unsure of his age but I would estimate him to be probably 13+ years. The owner claims they have de-wormed him...

    Not really sure if this is the best spot for this, so sorry if it's not Anyway, my mare has been done shedding for about a month or so, and I've been cleaning my 6 saddle pads xD My fleece ones are done, and so are my purple ones, but I just got down to my first one. It's pretty thin, and royal...

    I have a lovely chestnut TB mare. She always sheds out beautifully to a copper penny. This year her face is practically bald as well as her butt. Her shoulders and neck are very thin with a longer wiry hair still left. She did stay out all winter but was blanketed and has a shed -- besides...

    So my horse has started to shed a lot and I have been looking into products to help him shed his hair. I found one product that looked pretty cool called the SleekEZ (you can watch how it's used on Youtube). It it supposed to get the shedding hair out and also get dirt and dandruff out of the...

    My morgan mare gets seasonal dry skin, so I always put her on Grand Coat during the late fall through early spring. She also gets the appropriate amount (one pound) of Poulin MVP daily mixed with an 8 ounce measuring cup of Poulin 10:12 (just to make the MVP taste better). She gets 12-14 lbs of...

    So, we've been debating what color Paddy will turn out. I've already posted asking about what the chances are that she'll be roan and I know there's a 50/50 chance. I don't know what her father was or really anything about him. All I know about her mom is what I can see and what her current...

  18. Horse Grooming
    My horse is a fuzzball! You could make sweater out of all the hair I brush out of him every day. It got warm really fast so his hair couldn't catch up, and I feel bad that he has to have so much hair on when it's this hot out. I gave him a bath to try and loosen the hair, but do you have any...
