    Trainer/Handler

    Excellent that's about what I was thinking. Being a newbie at having a trainer/handler I didn't want to be a pest, LOL. Thanks again!

    Trainer/Handler

    Would you experienced with placing your horse(s) with a trainer/handler tell me what you would expect from the trainer along the lines of communication, such as updates on training, progress, show results. I'm looking for a timeline that you would feel is acceptable to keep you informed. Would...

    Recomended Trainers?

    Could you tell if someone was just trying to fill a training spot for the money and not because your horse is really that good? How would one be able to determine the motives of a trainer/handler? Are there specific things to ask or look for?

    Show budget question?

    If you were going to show at AMHA reginals and possibly Worlds, entering at least 2 classes per show. How much would you budget for the shows for travel, show fees, classes etc.

    WOW Who is checking out the White Tail auction?

    Well looks like someone is bidding on my horse! Anyone here bidding? I love the White Tail website, lots of the foals have videos you can see on the 2011 foal page. Oh gosh how am I going to talk my husband into another horse? :D

    WOW Who is checking out the White Tail auction?

    Great line up, mares with foals! I love that OC baby. OC has put some awesome foals on the ground. WT foals are so sweet and people friendly. I think they have an awesome breeding program and their stallion row is loaded with some great producing sires. That little black and white pinto is so...

    Getting some hatching eggs

    So most of the 1st batch of eggs were not fertile. I hatched out one chick. I now have 2 Hova-Bater Genesis baters that are electronic, so much easier. I have 3 batches of eggs (about 40) and almost all of batches 2 and 3 were fertile and are developing. Tonight they are going into lockdown...

    Getting some hatching eggs

    Candling the eggs today. Hope I get some chicks out of this batch but I must say it will be a miracle. This is hard and I'd say chickens ain't so dumb if they can hatch an egg!

    Getting some hatching eggs

    This is great information, thanks to all. I have been keeping the eggs at 60-70. With this warm weather and cool nights it is hard to keep a constant 60 degrees will I wait for my incubator. I have 6 hens but none are broody at this time. Should I turn the eggs until they are placed in the...

    Getting some hatching eggs

    The eggs are here, yipeeeeeee! 12 beautiful eggs of each Buff and Silver Laced Brahmas. I hope I can do them justice and get some to hatch. No incubator yet. I have them in new egg cartons with the large end up. Since the large end needs to be up do you just rotate them back and forth to turn...

    Getting some hatching eggs

    Thanks for the pointers,ship tracking says the eggs will arrive tomorrow and the incubator on Friday. Manufacturer says I have to set up the incubator and run it 8 hours to regulate temp. You think it will take that long?

    Getting some hatching eggs

    Thanks MindyLee that helps. They were laid Sat-Sun so hopefully I'll have enough time. If my incubater isn't here and the eggs are I'll go by a one at a local store and return the one being shipped.

    Getting some hatching eggs

    This will be a 1st for me, going to try my hand at hatching chicks. I bought fertilized Silver and Buff Laced Brahmas. I have attached a couple google pics of adults. Does anyone hatch their own chicks? Love the brahmas, I have several of the Light Brahma variety, they are docile and get...

    Prices may go up, maybe not. I think LKF prices their horses according to quality and I also think they are very fair and truely want to help to make your dream come true. I never thought I would have an Outstanding Buckeroo <3 daughter but Robin has the best offerings so had to do all I could...

    Will adult hens accept young chicks?

    They are now almost completely feathered. When I 1st got them 3-4 weeks ago the hens seemed aggressive. Tried to peck them and lunged at them. I have been putting the baby Brahmas out during the day in good weather. They are in a completely enclosed pen. The hens have checked them out but...
