    stallion contract ideas needed

    Hello all, I need ideas for stallion contracts. I have a friend who wants to use my stallion to breed to her mares. He would go to her farm for the season. How much do I ask? Who is responsible if my stallion gets hurt? What happens if her mare gets hurt? Live foal garentees? He is...

    Cichad killers(look like wasps)

    Around the barn yards are dry lots with a lot of sandy soil. For the past three years we have these wasp like cicada killers. They are huge and scarey looking and buzz around, but they are peaceful and really are not a problem. But they do make me nervous because of their looks. I am afraid that...

    HEAT waves and abortion

    We are heading into another extreme heat wave in NJ, and most of the country has been in a terrible heat wave too. Last summer, I was sure that the two mares that I bred took. They didnt cycle, the others not bred did. Towards the end of last summer, we had a brutal heat wave and a few weeks...

    What are your barn rules?

    I forgot.... Hubby is not allowed to talk to potential clients about prices, or anything pertaining to my horses. He is a great guy but he can't tell one horse from another!!! Robin

    What are your barn rules?

    No one goes into barn area without us. Gates are shut and chained, even if I am only going in for just a second. Feed room is always double locked. No one smokes under threat of DEATH. I never let any of the 4 H girls in with my adult stallions, even though they have always been well...

    Hi Jill... I have used it for the usual uses, bringing milk in after foaling etc... but it was my vet's idea to try it on an open mare. This one was always a great mama, and loved every mares babies. She accepted the orphan without any hestitation... Funny... The vets at New Bolton center were...

    I used it on a NON Pregnant mare in order to bring milk in so that she could adopt and feed an orphan colt of mine. Mama had died right after foaling. It took 3 days for her milk to come in. It is a wonderful drug. Saved me a HUGE amount of work. I ordered it (with the vet's prescription) from...

    Sphynx cats... Does anyone have one or breed them here?

    Thanks all for your thoughts on the naked kitties. I have been reading ALOT about them. I do like vocal kitties, and have read that they need weekly baths or at very least baby wipes a lot because of their oily skin. The $1500 price tag is daunting though, especially when there are so many cats...

    Flat tire! now what?

    I bought my No Flats tubes at Wal Mart, not expensive at all, but I had a bike repair guy come to the house and install them, He knew what he was doing but it was hard even for him. Well worth it!

    Conjunctivitis in a newborn foal

    Can be a couple of things... Eyes get red from the squeezing pressure of being pushed through the birth canal. Usually resolves ok without intervention, but ask the vet about eye intment.... could be a scratched cornea... you don't want to mess with that, call the vet and see about antibiotic...
