    Okay so there's this horse I really adore and are looking at buying, but he tested positive in his right fore during the flexion test. We had to float him 5 hours to where I live because he's from a very rural area and no equine vets were available there or nearby. I will have to float him back...

    I think my Shetland Pony mare may be in foal. I'm not sure though, because I don't think she has been with any stallions.
