    Breeding Question ..I need help

    Maiden mares can be frightened by a loud and overly excited stallion. Try putting them in stalls side by side so they can talk awhile before he attempts to breed her.How long has she been in heat? She may be just coming in heat and not ready to breed yet.

    Shetland in-hand tack

    Thanks, He's a mini that I rescued 10 yrs ago as a rank,abused stallion. With a lot of patience he came around and we have had fun/sucess showing him in halter and performance at the local level. I have his 7 yr old daughter that looks just like him only more feminine.

    Gaited and non-gaited??

    Thanks everyone. I don't think it was a type-o as it is spelled gaited. I have never heard of a gaited mini so I thought it was some other meaning or classification.

    source for long but narrow lead ropes?

    You can buy the colored flat leads at most pet stores for dogs. The Hamilton brand is the same colors as the Hamilton mini halters. I like the dog leads because they are thinner and come in various lengths from 4' on up.
