    Traveling to Nationals was too stressful

    My yearling was supposed to be showing tomorrow at Nationals, but instead he is in the Sapulpa Equine Hospital. We thought he had done well on the trip out from the east coast, but by Monday he was colicing. The vet tubed him, and by Tuesday gut sounds were good but he was still uncomfortable...

    For Profit Business or Hobby Farm

    I would appreciate any input you all can provide on whether you claim your horse breeding operation as a for profit business or a hobby farm, and if you've ever been audited by the IRS. Thank you.

    my barn cam is gone

    I keep my cam up year round for my own use, we're going out of town in a week and I like to check in on the kids when I'm gone, when I clicked on the link today, I learned that WeFoal is out of business effective today. Would have been to much to ask for them to give clients a little notice...

    6 mos old filly making strange sounds

    When I fed her tonight I noticed that the mouth was still going non-stop even though the feed is gone, it seems like she is grinding her teeth. That alone wouldn't worry me so much, but she has also snorting, kinda beathing with a rasp. I don't see anything in her mouth as far as I can get my...

    Chesapeake Minis Foal Cam is up

    After a terrible 2008 foaling season where two mares required emergency surgery, I took a break the last two years to let everything settle down a bit. I am pleased to now report that we are expecting three foals this month, all sired by my stallion Boones Little Buckeroos Tiny Tim. The cam is...

    World Show Qualification

    I have never shown AMHA before but am thinking about it for this year. I'm slightly confused about how many points I would need in order to qualify for the amateur class at the World Show. The rule book has the following 49. Amateur Junior Mares, Level 1 ...

    Regumate Question

    I know this has been discussed on here before, but I'd like to know some specifics. For those of you that do not stop giving Regumate, are the mares' gestations longer than normal, i.e., how many days have the mares carried before deliverying? For those of you that stop giving Regumate, at...

    Treating a suspected placentitis

    In talking with a new vet today, she mentioned pentoxifylline in addition to SMZs and Regumate to treat a mare that is showing signs similar to last year before she aborted, likely due to placentitis. This is the only article I could find that discussed its use to possibly improve blood flow...

    In anticipation of a premature foal...

    My mare aborted last year at 260 days. With the help of antibiotics and Regumate, I am cautiously optimistic that she may hold on long enough this year to have viability. We are at 275 days now. I have frozen colostrom in the freezer but it is 2 years old so I'm assuming it shouldn't be used...

    Possible Placentitis

    I've seen the suggestions to use Regumate and antibiotics to treat a possible placentitis and hold off an early abortion. I have a question about dosage to accomplish this. My mare aborted last year at 9 months, possible cause was placentitis. She's been on Regumate since confirmed in foal...

    My dog has Lyme's disease

    My wonderful teddy bear of dog, Apollo, a 140lb purebred Anatolian Shepard, didn't come up for breakfast Sunday morning with the herd. I found him laying down sound asleep, and when he woke up, he started growling at me. I locked him in the pasture he was in. The vet had to come load him...

    Foal having lax suspensory tendons issues

    My little Grace is 8 weeks old now and is absolutely perfect (in my barn blind eyes of course), except for her rear fetlock joints. When she trots or runs or even sometimes when walking there is no problem. However, when she is standing and relaxed, she rolls back onto the heels of her rear...

    Chesapeakes Full Moon Melody -- 4/14/06-2/19/07

    Melody was born on Good Friday last year, and passed away this afternoon on President’s Day. She made me wait 372 days for her to be born, got her front leg stuck trying to be born, and was a trouble maker from then on out…. But I loved her dearly. Melody coliced when she was four weeks...

    Is my mare trying to possibly abort?

    My mare is not due until the end of April, but I noticed over the weekend her tail is just as floppy as can be. She has no bag, and the croup is not relaxed. This really worried me so I had the vet out to check her. The foal is alive and kicking, and since the croup has not relaxed, the vet...

    Pictures with Santa

    We took my filly Melody to visit Santa last weekend at the local animal rescue event. My friend's daughter Shannon also took her mini, Dreamer. We loaded both up into the minivan -- and off we went. It was the first time horses had been there for photos, and I think our local paper is going...

Born at about 5:30am on Good Friday, the dam is Alvadars Just Enuf Banner (a King Supreme granddaughter) and the sire is Flights of Fancy Great Expectations (the 2004 Single Pleasure Driving champion). I haven't decided on a name...

    Flu/Rhino Vaccine Question

    My vet asked me which type of Flu/Rhino vaccine I wanted to give to my minis. Evidently there are newer versions of the flu(?) vaccine which protects from more types, but is not combined with the rhino so it means more shots for the horse. Has anybody had any experiences with these different...
