    Breeding Maidens

    I have had a few maidens be quite uncooperative when a stallion got anywhere near.... UNTIL they experienced their first success ;) I always hand breed, and my stallions know if they are not polite... they go for a long walk. And there was one mare I tried through several cycles, she was just...

    AMHA new Halter Stock Horse Division!

    Jody, I am sorry you feel this way...Here are some of the issues we looked at. First of all, there are very few AMHA horses that can compete in the classes with the ultra refined, extreme type that they are pinning. Since they feel they can't compete they don't come... we hope this will draw...

    I lost a beautiful yearling filly last year in a mini round pen panel. I have graphic photos ... her leg was almost torn off...when I found her she was still alive but barely... It was horrible. Do I still use the panels, yes.. but am I more careful with how I use them... Definitely. Unreal...

    Weaning by the Almanac

    Thanks, YUP... we do cold turkey here.... babies stay up where they are comfortable and have been... Mommas go to the back of the farm... they can't see or hear each other... works great!

    Twisted Cord

    We lost our first foal... a filly about 3 wks ago. The cord was twisted tight. I did a culture on the mare the other day.... there was no infection, so we are sure the twisted cord is what caused the foal to die prior to delivery. I have photos of the cord... pm me or email me if you would...

    I Can't Stop Crying

    Thank you all for your prayers and kind words. I have had a rough day. I have photos of her leg, I just can't even imagine that a fence panel could do something like this. I wanted to see her leg without tears and panic... It is so hard to think of her in such pain. But it was clear to me...

    I Can't Stop Crying

    I can't stop crying. I went out to feed this evening and everything looked "odd" up in the shelter where several mares and fillies are turned out. I had used some of the mini gate panels in the paddock, the kind that are like round pen panels and a "pin" secures the panels top and bottom by...
