    Miscarriage at 8 months, headed to vet

    It's pretty awful to see. I was so curious about it though. I had to tear open the sack to examine her.

    Miscarriage at 8 months, headed to vet

    Thank you. My vet looked at the photos I took of the baby (such an awful thing to have stored on your phone but i thought it might be important to show him) and he immediately observed that the cord was very twisted. The poor little filly didnt have a chance. He gave me instructions for watching...

    Miscarriage at 8 months, headed to vet

    Hey all, this is a little last minute so you might not have time to weigh in, but my mare just miscarried her foal at 8 months and I am hauling her to the vet this afternoon for a check up. What questions do I need to ask and what tests/exams do I really need to push for? This would have been...

    Learned a lesson - maybe it can help someone

    Luckily he seemed to regret it, because he ran back in as soon as I opened the gate!

    Learned a lesson - maybe it can help someone

    Since I don't really ride in the winter, I sacrificed my round pen panels to put together a turnout paddock for the minis. As I was doing some non-horse chores, I looked over and didn't see Walter, my 7 month old chubby colt. I thought "wow that little stinker is really camouflaged" and went...

    How can I tell if my mini is happy?

    I had literally forgotten about the hormones! You're so right. Good reminder!

    How can I tell if my mini is happy?

    Thank you very much everyone! I have to admit I sort of forgot about the boy hormones that will be showing up in him. I've been thinking of him like he's already a gelding! I think I will definitely try to enjoy his calm and obedient nature for as long as I can! Lol.

    How can I tell if my mini is happy?

    This question is about mini horse personalities, dispositions, and moods. My little stud Walter is almost 6 months old and the little guy just seems sort of world-weary. He has zero health problems and grows like a weed, but he just doesn't seem excited about life. He's exceptionally obedient...

    First timer from Salem, Oregon

    Always glad to show and tell my critters! ;). Here are some pics of Taffy (mom) and Walter (colt, DOB 5/2/21) as well as their friend Ruby a Welsh Pony who is currently babysitting Walter through the weaning process. He is only 4.5 months but the vet said it was time, as he has a mouthfull of...

    Wow, the difference is amazing! I hope my Walter grows a tail like THAT someday!

    Beautiful! Looks like he has some dappling too. I love that!

    Flaxen mane/tail change color with age?

    Thanks so much for this info! With my goats, they definitely show their mineral deficiencies with their hair bleaching - hasn't thought to wonder if that was true for horses. I have a buckskin who gets really coppery in her mane and take and this has made me want to investigate whether her...

    Flaxen mane/tail change color with age?

    Wow, thank you so much for sharing the pics! Amazing how much he has changed. He's been beautiful in all stages! That chocolate brown, though - How gorgeous!
