    Is this normal? This yearling looks real bloated right now. She’s looked this way off and on for several months but not quite this bad. Just a hay belly?

    My boy is 18 months old and I'm thinking I should worm him because I just got him from a kill pen and dont know if has been dewormed recently. I have no idea what he weighs because I can't take him to the vet. He is about 14HH. Any suggestions on brand, amount, timing, etc?
  3. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have an 18 month old curly-QH cross. He can be the sweetest puppy dog like colt you've ever met but he can also be a little terror. I got him gelded about 6 months ago and I was hoping it would be an easy fix to some of his behaviors but that doesn't seem to be the case. He loves chasing...

    So I finally after a year of looking have found a horse. And it's the one thing I didn't want a Quarter horse oh well I knew when I saw these horses that they were perfect. We bought a thoroughbred mare from a local farm about 7 years ago. She was fun but not a great fit in the herd so we sold...

    Hello! I am new here! I am a lifelong horse owner and have had a lot of experience BUT this is something I’ve never dealt with. I just picked up this yearling boy today out of a less than ideal situation. He is COVERED in encrusted feces. It is hard as cement. How am I going to get this off?! It...
  6. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Okay let me start by saying I know there are no guarantees or anything other then a educated guess. But I was wondering about how much does a horse grow from 1 year old upto full grown? I know every breed is different but just in general. (It'd also be cool if you guys could say about how much...
  7. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...
  8. 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...
  10. 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...

  12. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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?
  14. 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?
  15. Horse Conformation Queries and 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.
  16. Lessons, Trainers, Schools, Clubs, Clinics
    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...
