    Color patterns - you just never know!

    Part of the fun of breeding miniature horses, is not knowing what colors or patterns you might get in the end result. This one was a real surprise to me. I bred a very minimally marked splashed white mare (solid bay with just a star and snip) to a minimally marked bay tobiano stallion (streak...

    Joint infections in foals - How do you treat?

    I have a now 2 1/2 week old foal who has been fighting a joint infection since Tuesday of last week. Things seem to be heading in the right direction, so I am hopeful. Initially I started him on SMZ's and Penicillin. Twice a day on both. Not the antibiotics my vet prefers (he likes Naxel)...

    Newborn Foal Timeline

    With foaling season in full swing, I thought I would repost this info. From 2006. Great information to know! Healthy newborn foals hit a number of developmental milestones on a predictable time line. When a foal lags significantly behind the norm, it's wise to call your veterinarian for a...

    Udder question in pregnant mare

    I have an 18 yr old pg mare who is at 325 days and bagging up nicely. Prior to starting to bag up, she had no udder development whatsoever. She's had a number of foals, the last being in 2010. I didn't own her at that time. Upon checking her milk, one side of her udder has a cheesy...

    Missy **COLT** 5/5 , Joint ill - Keep him in your prayers

    Need some ideas - colt dumping feed and water buckets

    I have a client's yearling colt in training. In the 12 years I've been training for clients, I've hever had a horse this bad! No matter what I do, what size buckets or type of feeder, this colt dumps it all. He's keeping his stall flooded with water and dumps or paws his feed out of a pan or...

    While on the topic of pinto patterns....

    Specifically, there is a gene or genes or a modifier that limits pinto markings? Are there any new thoughts on this or any tests in the works? It would be nice to know prior to breeding what horses are going to reduce white and which ones are going to turn it on. Especially in tobiano.

    Dog behavior

    A litte history. I have a 5 yr old neutered male Dachshund, Ray. I've owned him since he was 9 months old and he's been neutered since he was 1 yr. He's been the only dog here for the past 3 years or so. A month ago, I got a 3 yr old neutered male Dachshund, Leonard. Leonard had just been...

    Split gum

    Discovered one of the horses has a split gum towards the front of his lower jaw. Probably from horse play and probably a few days old. I flushed it with saline and will put him on SMZ's. Anybody else had something like this happen and how did you treat it?

    Speaking of puppies......

    Is there a chart somewhere that shows weight at a certain age = approximate mature weight? My Dachshund puppy, Fred, weighed 5 lbs at 7 - 8 weeks of age. He goes back to the vet today for his second set of vaccinations and I'm sure he'll be weighed again. He's grown quite a bit in the past 3...

    My new puppy

    Whatever possessed me to think I needed another Dachshund, but they are so cute, you can't have just one! Ray now has a new friend and his name is Fred.

    Questions regarding worming for Strongyles

    I have brought in a new mare with a 3 1/2 month old colt by her side. Wormed the mare this week with Ivermetin and the colt with Anthelcide (Oxibendazole). The mare is loaded with large and small strongyles. The worst I've seen in a horse. I want to do a 5 day double dose of Fenbendazole...

    Bluebonnet Feeds

    Bluebonnet feeds are probably only available in the south, particularly Oklahoma and Texas, and I was wondering if anybody fed their equine feeds. Especially the Equilene line of horse feeds. Wondering about the results and consistency if anybody has fed this for awhile. It appears that they...
