  1. Trailer and Horsebox queries
    Hi, I'm buying a weanling soon and I just realized I have a problem. I have a two horse straight load trailer. I don't think the divider can be removed. Will the baby be okay? I already know for sure I'm not tying him, because I don't believ he knows how to tie and I don't think the ties I have...

    I've been taking lessons since 2018 and now my mom has finally allowed me to start looking for a horse. She found an AQH filly. Should I get a weanling?I have been working with my trainer's (well now former trainer as I am finding a barn to board a weanling) gelding for a bit. We already put in...
  3. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    Hey there, I’m new to the community and I hope I can find some good advice here! I’m just gonna go ahead and apologize for the long post, but I feel that all this info may be needed. All questions are found at the bottom of the post. I’ve owned horses just about all my life, but never a young...

    Hello all, I may be getting a little baby of only 3 months old. She is being weaned early due to current owners circumstances/reasons. I'm considering getting this baby as I'm already getting a 6 month old colt from close to the same area anyway and the two would have each other for company...
  5. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi! I recently purchased two completely unhanded fillies. One is a weanling. I bought them on Monday (today is Saturday) So my ambition - if you will - is to train these horses ‘fear free’ using Neil Davies methods. I have some experience with my other horse who came to me starved and was a...

    Quite a few of you saw my last thread on these two, titled "New Rescues - Help!" ( New Rescues - Help! ) and gave me some great advice for how best to rehab these two girls. Today we got them outside and I was able to take a few "before" pictures of them. For anyone who didn't see the last...
  7. Horse Talk
    Hello all! I'm pretty much categorized as a lurker on the forum, though I've posted a few times. I currently have two horses, but I just got two more as a sort of impulse decision. Meet Ellie and Basil! Ellie - 7 year old QH/Standardbred mare, probably around 15 hands. She was used as a pack...

    My filly, Melody, has started to rub her neck on the trees in her pasture and rubbing the hair off around the base and now the underside as well. She's naturally been an itchy baby who loves scratches, but in the last little while, it seems to have gotten progressively worse and quickly. I've...
  9. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    I just recently won a weanling solid pinto filly. As of right now, I am doing research on feed because the food she came on is too expensive for my family and they'd like to have her switched as soon as possible. Right now she is only 5 months old. (Late April baby). She came on hay cubes, red...

    2014 All-Around prospect sired by Gentlemen Send Roses and out of a Will Spot Ya/Dirty Sonny bred mare. "Rhaego" is a smart and sweet colt with a soft lope and excellent conformation. He has already learned to lead, stand tied, and pick up his feet and is also very easy to catch and halter. He...
  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have just purchased a 6 month old filly, she's a Fresian/Paint cross and she is beautiful and very sweet, but also quite stubborn. Thanks to some outside circumstances, she doesn't really know how to lead. She knows what a halter is, and she will back and move from side to side but for the...

  14. Horse Talk
    Hi all, I'm not sure where to post this so I figured I'd start here! I've been riding since I was 8 years old, so I have 13 years in a saddle. 2 years ago I bought my first horse, a 7 year old OTTB. He was incredibly green (used as a babysitter for the foals/young horses she had and was...

    Broodmare is 10 years old and weanling colt will be 5 months on the 20th of this month. I hadn't seen my horses since the Mare foaled in March since I live quite a distance from the farm they were on. My husband and brother brought them to my farm 2 weeks ago, they were underweight (more like...

    So I had some questions on a different post about weanling nutrition, and I came across Ultium Growth...but I just cannot stomach the price of it sadly. So I had plans to buy Strategy Healthy Edge (for my mare) but my feed store doesn't carry it...So I have decided to try Strategy Professional...

    I'll make this brief. If you need more info let me know. I have an about 9 1/2 month old filly. She was recently weaned in an adjacent pen to the other three horses (one of which is her momma). We adopted the filly and her momma in March. They were kept together for about a week and a half to...
