    Flooding run in shed!

    We were new at building run in shelters and of course picked the most level spot. Of course it is down hill and it stays wet. Can we build a floor. Need to do this before winter. Next spring we will move the location but need something for the winter.

    Thought she was pregnant!

    Hi all, I have a mare that tested positive twice with Wee-foal. Her 340 due date was on the 26th. No bag no signs that she is going to foal. Would it be safe to put her out with the stallion I am going to bred her with or should I wait longer? Thanks in advance. Debbie

    Safe feed supplement

    Hello, I seem to be feeding more and more feed to keep the weight on this year. It has been unusually cold so far. Would alfalfa pellets be a safe addition to their feed to help keep the weight on? I am feeding Legends performance 12/10/18 pelleted feed. Thanks, Debbie

    Pattern Question

    Hi, Another pattern question. I think he is a sorrel pinto with sabino roaning(note the patch on his hip in top picture). He also has sabino roaning on his stomach, and dark blue eyes. He is 2 years old so I am pretty sure that they will stay blue. What do you all think? Thank you, Debbie...
