    Grazing muzzle?

    Maybe give him one small treat each time he allows you to catch him to put the muzzle on.

    Yes, Strangles IS Equine Distemper.  They are both the same thing, they just go by different names.  Here is a good article for you to read on it.

    Kodak Moments

    I was particularly tickled with this one I took yesterday. I was just crossing the street in Fort Frances and saw this laying there on the street. I stepped up onto the sidewalk, but then turned back around and took phone out of my pocket to take pic of it. I thought it looked pretty much...

    No, he has a blaze just the same way as any other horse would. It has nothing to do with color. Any color horse can have a blaze. The pink nose is because of the white skin under the blaze.  Skin under areas of white is pink.  Skin under "color" is black.

    He looks silver buckskin. Or brown buckskin.

    HELP: Newborn has tucked rear legs and unable to walk.

    How do you know the foal has luxating patellas? Perhaps in a newborn, they are luxating for a specific reason. Due to positioning inside of dam, lack of space etc.  Is she straightening out at al yet??  Can you post new pics and possibly short video clip?

    What was she bred to??  A big pony stud?

    HELP: Newborn has tucked rear legs and unable to walk.

    I guess if you cannot afford a vet, the only thing you can really do then at this point, is to continue helping the foal nurse and to ensure she's getting enough to eat. Maybe once she starts moving around more and is up on her feet more, she'll slowly unfold.

    HELP: Newborn has tucked rear legs and unable to walk.

    That's a TALL newborn.  Wondering if maybe it has something to do with being so cramped up inside, she maybe didn't grow properly??

    Any other reason this area would look like this...

    I would say that if she is rubbing herself on something, possibly that could cause it.

    Preggers or overweight??

    She looks like she has a typical broodmare figure. (not visibly in foal, in my opinion, based on these pics)

    Gelding senior stallion

    At 26 years old, I would say just leave him a stallion. I am all for gelding, but at that age, the procedure might not be worth the risk and it won't change his behavior anyway.

    Rejected baby

    Yes, no kidding!! I have a friend that raises Arabs and I gave her this info.  She said she tried several doses of Oxytocin to no avail. I assume both would work in a similar manner.

    Rejected baby

    Chanda, interesting!! Was there ever any discussion in the comments afterwards as to how long after birth this would last if tried?  I mean is 3 days after baby is born to late to try or does it have to be within first 24 hours or ??? Or can it work on a week old or a two week old?  I guess the...

    Rejected baby

    She already said she's been milking the mare to feed the foal. (so that is good, and was very important that the foal get the colostrum.  I would try tying the mare up short (snug) to a wall, and then tieing her near back leg up with a rope that ties around her neck,  Then when she tries to kick...

    CYROMAZINE fly product

    I was reading up on this, and found this statement interesting, and quite possibly, the reason they had to stop putting it into feed.  "While cyromazine has a low mammalian toxicity, it may cause adverse effects on reproduction and development if ingested."...

    She’s here!

    CONGRATULATIONS!  Sounds like a wonderful experience for you!  Horses are so different than dogs when it comes to birthing. They can go from what looks like nothing to a baby there in a matter of minutes as you witnessed.  If it's not fast, then THAT IS need for concern and worry.

    She’s waxing! How long until the foal arrives?

    ANY TIME!  No way of knowing for sure!  Good luck! Hope you'll be sleeping with one eye open!
