so it will be her first foal so wanted the stallion to be smaller. she is running with him at the moment 24/7.
In her last cycle he had a few good goes but shes come in season again so I don't think he gets quite far in enough? I don't know how far he needs to go never whitnessed serving before.
the season is getting late so I want to make it happen this cycle or next but think I need to help him out a little.
any advice appreciated
also any tips on supplements to feed the stallion? I'm giveing cod liver oil for the vitamin A to make sure he is fertile also a commercial mineral supp
this will be my first foal so any advice would be great
I am certainly we established in horses. I have a purpose for the foal. The stallion has been a stud all his life for the previous owner and the mare has been a very successful show pony looking to breed her to some pure Shetlands in future.
Hills, as has been said - and a lot of people I know have built platforms for their smaller stallions. I imagine you could dig a fairly shallow trench also, but you would have to make the mare hold still which could take a couple or three people.
