#1523882 Post and share your 2013 foals!

Posted by djskid on 12 January 2013 - 08:59 PM

Well, I guess I'll be the first of the 2013 season to share!! We started the new year out on a great note-this little beauty was born Jan 2/13. We are still working on her name but leaning towards Jolie's Royal Copy Kate (barn name Kate). She already has everyone wrapped around her little hooves!! If you make the mistake of letting her see you look at her.....and lets face it, it is difficult to ignore that face :wub, you're in for it as she then expects/demands that you give her some lovin! I kinda like her :wink and can't wait to show her this summer!

We had our first foal - filly,  born on February 7, at 7PM and 7 degrees. Almost called her 7UP LOL. Her name is CMC Evening Star (barn name Stella). She is sired by GRF Royal Star Designer Domino and out of Buckeye WCF Paposo Red Alert. This is Red Alert's first foal and she is being a very good mom.

Here is our first of three due this spring. He is still waiting on a name as my sister is very picky about names. I went out to feed mama and check on her for breakfast and all was fine an hour later she had found the muddiest spot in the pasture and had two little hooves sticking out in the rain. This was her first baby so I was worried she might have some problem because she is so small, but it was all done and over with in about 7 minutes. Not 100% sure what his color is. 
For the record she doesn't have power wheel cars and play pens in her stall lol. I could only get her to walk as far as the hay barn to get her out of the rain. We made it to her stall after she had some time to rest.

This is Yukon, our colt born on January 22, the coldest day of the winter here in Maine. It was something like -10* and the windchill was close to -30*F.

His Dad is a BTU son and his dam is a Buckeroo granddaughter.  They are both bay-- something like 7% chance of getting a sorrel out of 2 bays!

He is full of it and very smart!

Regardless if Brown was black/white/purple it doesn't matter. Was he a thug/theif? Probably, but It doesn't matter, what does matter is if the officer felt for his life, if he did, he had a right to use lethal force to protect himself and those around him. With an orbital fracture it is not odd that he shot 6 times, he may have been seeing double. As far as the looting, it makes no sense what so ever. If you ask half the people involved in the looting and rioting they probably can't even tell you why they are rioting. It is an excuse to break the law. The Sharptons, Jackson's of this world are not making the situation any better either.

Do I think there is police brutality going on in this country? Sure, it happens, and it's not ok, is this a case of it? We will never know for sure...with so many hands in the pot and so much publicity, there may never be a clear answer. I will tell you this, the officer encountered blacks on a daily basis, if it was a racial motivated shooting don't you think he would of shot some random black person sooner?

#1587327 Horse Show Etiquette

Posted by Performancemini on 28 May 2014 - 11:05 AM

I applaud the judge at a Shetland show that excused a stallion and handler. It was a halter class of aged stallions. The stallion just got more and more obnoxious as the class went on. He had his "equipment" out and ready and finally mounted his handler from the rear. It took the ring steward and judge to help get him off and under control! (The handler WAS experienced and not unknown). The judge disqualified and excused that stallion from not only the class, but from the rest of the show. My husband and I decided the stallion not only needed to be gelded but have a lobotomy!

Is a combo of watercolor and digital painting with painter 12. Never seem to be able to do a traditional painting. Normally I do a mix media.

This is our first foal for the year. He was born on Jan 15th just before midnight. This is the first foal from my boy Ferrari so we are thinking about WHF Ferrari First Edition and his barn name is Rocket.

#1620733 Healthy hooves

Posted by Jean_B on 11 March 2017 - 12:55 PM

Best thing is a GOOD farrier.  One who has had training on how to trim for correct balance, as well as health issues such as white line, thrush, founder.  One of the things many farriers do is leave WAY WAY too much heel, which causes them to stand up like on soda cans, forcing them "over" at the knees,  which is painful for the horse. I've owned horses for over 50 years, have watched as they trimmed thousands of feet over that period of time, and would never trim my own unless I went to an in-depth class. I have fired 4 farriers - one I threw off the property because he just was incompetent. Just because they have a hoof nipper and a rasp doesn't mean they should be anywhere near a horse.

#1620130 "Gliding" the trot in halter?..

Posted by Minimor on 21 January 2017 - 11:40 AM

I personally do not like that ridiculous "shuffle" that you call a glide. it looks silly and even clumsy. In halter it would be about conformation of course but in showmanship if I were judging I would mark down any exhibitor who moved that way--knees bent and body hunkered down. Stand up straight and look elegant.

How I show--I jog properly, so my horse trots out. Too many exhibitors look like they are showing a dog rather than a horse--it is one thing I dislike about mini shows.

#1589051 Horse Show Etiquette

Posted by Riverrose28 on 25 June 2014 - 03:13 PM

One thing that bothers me is other exhibitors that use my stuff. For example, I'm sorry you forgot your water bucket if you ask I'll loan you one, but don't take mine without permission. If you sit in my lawn chair, that's OK, but when I come back from the ring and want to sit down, please get up. Oh and tie your water bucket up so your horse doesn't spill water into my horses stall, bedding is expensive. For heaven sakes when spending a week or more at Nationals please pick out your stall, the odor is getting to be a bit much. Sweep up your mess out of the aisle, I sweep up mine and I expect the same curtesy. When my coffee pot is plugged in at my tack stall, please don't unplug it so you can plug in your computer, don't you have your own outlet at your stalls, I don't want to hear your excuse that you can't get wi-fi at your stall, I want my coffee! Done ranting for now!

#1569006 Chondrodysplasia-like Dwarfism in the Miniature Horse

Posted by Arion Mgmt on 05 October 2013 - 12:08 PM

As promised when I finished my thesis I would let the Lilbeginnings be notifies for all those that helped and showed interest. 


I am presently working on the paper to be submitted to a peer reviewed magazine.  Should be done shortly.  Until then you can read the pdf from the UK library.  The tests are being optimized for the testing machines here at Gluck so they are not ready.... YET.  UK has applied for the patents to these tests.  So UK will be the only place to have your horses tested in the US.  If you are outside the US it is different.
