    Height discrepancy on purchased horse

    I had two long time breeders over yesterday - and asked them to measure this mare. They both commented about her having to be oversize - it is that obvious. So we got the measuring stick out - stood the mare - measured - mover her and measured again. She is definitely 36 - no way in the world...

    Height discrepancy on purchased horse

    I am sure that lots of purchasers have been disappointed, upset, betrayed when they have purchased a horse represented as an AMHA/AMHR horse that is under 34" - only to have the horse arrive after a very long trailer ride to find that the said horse is much taller than represented (e.g. 36")...

    Maiden mares..

    I had a maiden mare go 367 days - I thought she was never going to foal. She was hand bred so I know exactly when she was bred - and I never pasture breed my mares. Her foal was big - and it was a tough delivery but all turned out fine!!!!

    I Can't Stop Crying

    I am so sorry to hear this. It is always so tragic and so hard to understand when we try our best to make the safest environment for our horses that we love so dearly. I had a similar thing happen with a yearling colt - he got his head caught and I think I found him just in time. I was lucky...

    Pine pelleted bedding...pros or cons

    Is there somewhere in Canada to buy the paper shavings? I have never seen it!!!! I don't really like the regular shavings - and they are expensive. Straw has been hard to find this year. I like straw for foaling - but it is very labour intensive!!!!

    Yes you are too big to ride a mini!!!!

    She deserves a good kick in the head - what an idiot. I think the Humane Society should be involved in abuse like this.

    Have any of you ever bought young minis that were not "tame" or worked with yet?

    My first 3 minis were as wild as deer. I bought them because I felt sorry for them as they were foraging for feed in 2 feet of snow - and had no water - and it was bitterly cold. They were a lot of work - but eventually they came around. There were 2 stallions and a mare - all 3 year olds. I...
