  1. Horse 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...
  2. New to Horses
    2 weeks ago I bought 2 friesian girls -6 and 7 months old - they are my first horses and I'm so excited and pleased with them - but I have some problems I don't know how best to progress with...... We built them 2 stalls, each 3x4m, in a large airy barn - but it does not have direct access to...
  3. Horses for Sale
    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...
  4. New to Horses
    I have a 7 year old quarter horse gelding in a 1/4 acre pasture. My mom wants to get an 8 month old foal that she has had her eye on for months. Is it safe to put such a young colt in the pasture with my gelding? If not, what age would I introduce the colt to his new "herd?"
  5. Horse Training
    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...

  8. 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...
  10. Horse Health
    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...
