    What do you guys feed

    I feed a good grass hay, a sweet feed with no corn. Occasionally I feed a cup of soaked alfafa cubes usually during harsh winters. They have free choice trace minerals avaliable 24/7

    How much hay do I need??

    Thanks for your responses. I usually have to feed hay 8 or 9 months out of the year, during the summer it just depends on how well the pastures are growing. I'll go with 3 or 4 per week to be safe, incase winter is a bad one.

    How much hay do I need??

    I know this may sound like a question I should already know the answer too, but when we had more horses, rounds worked best for our situation. Now that I may be keeping the last many square bales of hay do I need to get me every month?? One's a gelding, one's a stallion, both a bit...

    Why are stallions so hard to sell??

    I realize many people are searching for that perfect stallion. I hope everyone finds what they are searching for. I haven't shown my stallion, but he does have a decent lineage. He's produced beautiful babies...and since I must get rid of all my horses the price is next to free and yet NOBODY...

    Why are stallions so hard to sell??

    I could get a buyer quick on a mare or gelding. Why do stallions seem so much harder?? I personally think stallions get a bad wrap in some peoples eyes. Does anyone else have this dilemma??

    When do you start teaching how to lead?

    Our filly is 2 1/2 months old. She is quite friendly & lets me scritch her all over which is good, but when it comes to putting a lead rope on she pulls back something fierce. Can you please give me some tips or tricks you found that make teaching them to lead without fear?? Thanks

    Looking for a loving home

    Due to unforseen circumstances I must find a loving home for 3 of our mini's. Up to date on everything, will need vaccines this Fall. Filly can be registered AMHR (dark bay/pinto) Stallion is dark bay, and mare is a silver dapple. Due to these circumstances, coggins have not yet been done...

    When seperating them for a couple hours or so, don't the filly or colt just 'cry' and 'cry'?? Last year I did a cold turkey weaning and I'm making sure this year that doesn't happen.
