    Best Foal Blankets

    I have several newborn foal blankets and use them every year. This year I am finding that I have gaps in my sizes and I want to fill in those gaps so that the blankets are not too small or too large. The newborn foals seem to be very precise so that they do not get tangled. Which do you find...

    AMHR Studbook Look Up Please

    Hand feeding Foals - What bottles and Nipples work ??

    Every so often there is a foal born that we need to get some colostum into quickly. We have used syringes with short feeding tubes. But as I am going through my foaling box and restocking, I was wondering if any of you have suggestions for what works for miniature horses. Over the years I...

    Fodder - Is anyone feeding fresh sprouted grass to their minis ?

    There are several companies selling ways to sprout large amounts of sprouted grass (mostly barley seed) to replace most of the dry hay we normally feed. Just wondering if any of you are using this fresh "fodder" ? Seems like a great alternative.

    The Value of Genetic Testing

    I often think how lucky we are now to have testing available. When I started breeding 19 years ago, testing was in its infancy and we did not have the frame test available. Breeders lost more foals due to our lack of knowledge. Even with a few tests not being as complete as we would like, the...

    Foaling Videos for use as a learning tool

    With the help of the volunteers at Mare Stare that record many of the births, LB is going to try and put together a show and tell area about foaling. What I have started doing is looking at the previous foaling of the mare that is about to foal to remind myself of any problems that may have...

    Using the Mare Stare video replays as a Learning Tool

    This year I have been replaying my mares last birth video and using that information to plan on their current foaling. It worked with Kitty Hawk. The same senerio was unfolding, but this time with different results as I changed my technique after watching the previous video. I know every birth...
