    Not eating or drinking

    Check her hooves for heat as she could founder if she ate too much grass too. Any heat in them and you def want to get the vet right away for that too. I wouldn't wait too long if not eating and drinking anyways. Can try to get her to drink some Gatorade for the electrolytes to encourage her...

    Maple Hollow Farm 2017 Foaling Thread :D

    O yea, I despise pasture breeding for that reason. We only have one that we bought that was pasture bred but the previous owner saw her covered for an April baby. Here is the complete list: Success (3/6) for 340 days-Shetland Mini Elady (3/8) for 330 days - thinking open but wasnt checked...

    Realized I never introduced my first pony!

    Thanks guys!!!! Im really excited for her to foal! Should be late feb or early march. She is definitely different to handle than a mini and will be getting some serious desensitizing after she foals but for now just keeping her happy and healthy! From what I was told she has just run pasture...

    Question regarding frame / splash overo in Rowdy bloodlines

    Sir was Tovero (Tobiano + overo)... Lazy N Redboy line has known LWO and splash offspring but dont know if Sir was ever actually tested but has the typical white face and blue eyes that is common in that line.

    Show Halters

    Jumper you could probably get away with it as it is simply judged on clean round and speed. Obstacle is a maybe but I would lean towards getting a nice leather performance halter. Hunter is judged on presentation, fluid even gaits, centered jumps, basically showmanship in jumping so I would...

    Show Clipping Poll

    I put 3-5 days as that is pretty average but it does depend on the color of the horse. White horses seem to fuzz up faster so I like to do them as close to the show as possible, have even clipped at the show LOL! But dark colored horses or ones that lose color after clipping I like to go...

    Razoring the pink skinned mini..

    I do not like razoring pink skinned animals, looks gross IMO . I have cremellos and some loud pintos and I just blend with 30 and 40 blades around their muzzle and a little around the eyes. If only a small amount of pink in a snip or something but still mostly dark skinned muzzles I would...
