    Repeat Matings

    Just a question for breeders, perhaps more so for the ones that use outside stallions or have more than one of their own. If you bred a foal that you were very very happy with do you usually repeat the mating in the hopes of getting a similar or better foal (I know the variables with genetics...

    Thanks for the replies Sorry no pics yet. Will try to get some in the next few days. I should add that the filly has been on a top diet and had excellent farrier work done also (and frequently) the vet isnt a great help to be honest (but the only one I have access to without a large amount of...

    Hello I have a 6 months old filly who is quite splayed out in the front legs (bones not hooves). I was hoping someone could give me some advice as to why this may be. Neither her sire nor dam have this fault. Is this a genetic fault? Nutrional perhaps? (mare was on a good diet and in great...

    Double K Clippers

    Hi I have a set of Double K clippers and was wondering what maintenance they require. The last time I clipped my mini horse the clippers seems to get stuck in his coat they left HUGE lines.
