  1. Horse Training
    Hello All! I'll be getting a yearling gelding in the next couple weeks. He is the sweetest little man, already 13.3 at 15 months (he's a BLM mustang, that's pretty tall). I'm not going to be doing anything too strenuous with him (no lunging, no poles, etc.), but I am interested in hearing what...
  2. Horse Breeding
    I'm contemplating spending a heap of money on a Baroque Pinto just-turned-yearling filly. She is very well proportioned (not high in the butt) but only 13.2hh. She is 3/4 Friesian, 1/4 Baroque Pinto and has been on pasture mostly plus a nutrient balancer. Dam is 16:1, sire is 16.2. Her hefty...

    Hey guys. So I got some bad news today that I'm still working on processing a bit. I had the farrier come out today to trim my horses hooves and also my filly, Ren, had an abscess in her right hind hoof. He said it was nothing serious and got rid of it quite easily, but noticed something else...
  4. 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...

    SO, after not having a horse for over a year after getting married I convinced my husband to let me get one. :grin: I am absolutely in love with her. Her name is Joy and she's a 2/3 Friesian, 1/3 appaloosa. The interesting part is she is my first baby. I was very careful to select a boarding...

    Hello, I have a filly who is about 1 year 9 months old. She has pretty much been a range pony till now so hasn't had any vaccinations. What vaccines would be best/safe for her before moving her in with someone else's horses?

  9. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hello! I am writing up a ad for my sweet filly (I rescued her, and I would love to keep her but can't), and I'm not sure if she is a bay marble appaloosa or a bay frost appaloosa. Thoughts?
  10. New to Horses
    So I've been looking into getting a young horse to work with, and I came across an ad for a free one ("We are donating this thoroughbred yearling to a young person interested in learning the skills of raising and developing this young filly into an equine athlete. This filly is healthy, has good...

    Title says it all I purchased my first yearling. Her name is Teagan and she's an appaloosa. She's 14 months old and just adorable. I am not a first time horse owner I am a first time yearling owner though and I've leased mares but only owned geldings so she's the first "mare" I've owned. I do...
  12. Horse Conformation Critique
    This is Alabama my 14'2hh yearling (turning 2 July 10). She's 3/4 quarter horse and 1/4 Belgian. I was hoping on using her as a jumper in the futur, even though she is still growing can you tell me some faults/good conformation points she has? Thank you.

    As mentioned in a few other posts, I've recently decided to take in an unhandled yearling as a rescue/project. I was wondering what activities/exercises could benefit him and get him a little more comfortable around people. Looking for a variety of opinions, all answers are helpful <3

    Hello, I've made a massive decision this weekend- one that I wasn't exactly expecting to make aha... I have committed to buy a little pony that was originally advertised as a 'Good project pony.' However, when I arrived to look at him, I was pretty shocked by what I saw. I felt bad for him...
  15. Horse Health
    So my yearling got a sore (about the size of a nickel, and slightly flat) on his right side a couple months ago and it wasn't bothering him so I left it, thinking it would go away. Now its bigger (about the size of two dollars and its clumpy) and he pins his ears back and goes to nip me when I...

    I own an almost 2 year old QH and all of a sudden (about a month ago) he started getting ready bad with biting. He has never been a biter and then one day when I was leading him I noticed that he kept trying to grab his leadrope in his mouth while leading. And it hasn't stopped. I have read some...

    Okay, so add another blanketing question to the pile…. :-) <Post in a nutshell: Yearling filly injured and went to vet for four weeks, concerned the fluorescent lights kept her coat from growing, should I blanket her since she is on stall rest right now?> Here is the background and more info…...
