    mare that constantly cycles

    Thanks you all. I have been busy with life for a few days (grandson in state ball tourney, aunt broke her hip) and have not been back on forum till now. What the mare seems to do is stop cycling for a week and then back on for 2-3 weeks. This evening when I got back home, she was not teasing and...

    mare that constantly cycles

    A couple of months ago I had a stallion gelded. Last month I turned him out with a couple of mares. He still exhibits stallion behavior unfortunately and one particular mare cycles constantly. Her hind legs are so nasty right now from all this behavior. Whenever I turn out another gelding and a...

    Get Back Loretta!

    Bump. More than 14 months later even people living under rocks now know who she is or more appropriately what she is. Now for those of you who might think Carriage Bb Bob had a crystal ball...I believe he was just reading the writing on the wall.

    Gelding how much time

    I have heard even after gelding that a stallion can impregnate for 30 days. Also heard 90 days. How long do you keep one away from the mares? Also, would one that was dominant over another stallion remain dominant if he was gelded? What if both were gelded at the same time? How soon would you...

    Milk test strips usuage

    I used the strips for testing swimming pool water. They worked great and were cheap. Generally went with when they reached day 300, or had a full udder, or were showing signs of stage 1 labor. Any of these situations seems the time and the strips were so inexpensive I did not feel wasteful.

    Low Starch that I like

    My 3 that stay on dry lot share about 7 cups morning and evening. So about 2 1/3 cups twice a day per horse. They are A size, but on the larger end of the spectrum. Everyone else varies according to size and quality of pasture.

    Low Starch that I like

    I just wanted to share that I am so pleased with the low starch feed I am feeding my insulin resistant few that I have recently put all on it. This type of feed is cooked through an extrusion process making all the nutrients more readily absorbed. I know there are different low starch feeds on...

    Hoof trimming tools

    Thanks for your input. I have started paying more attention to what the farrier is doing and thought I might try to get handy at it. I know it will kill my back just like grooming them down low does (and weeding flower beds, ouuuuch). Would like to save money and be able to know what I am...

    Merle Haggard country music legend

    He passed away today on his 79th birthday. He was one of a kind. The local radio station has been playing his songs all day and taking requests. So many songs and so much talent. The song I really liked was If We Make It Through December. Let's honor Hag and name some more of his hits you...

    Old Horse

    So touching. I think Frank and Seven shared a heartfelt "good-bye, see you in the next life."
