    Barren Mare with Stallion

    Hi everyone, I have a very healthy and happy 23 year old mini mare. She failed to settle in 2013 & 2014, but had a successful run as a broodmare in her younger days. She was sold to me as barren and I have no plans to try and get a foal from her, but I do plan to breed her pasture mate. Would it...

    What age did you breed your mare?

    Who have you bred (or not bred) for 2013?

    Those who have followed the forum for awhile likely know of our horrible foaling luck, as we have more dead foals over 6 years than live ones. But for this year, we were blessed with 3 healthy foals (and 2 fillies!) from 3 mares that were bred. But we swore that no matter what happened this...

    Problems breeding with a stallion

    To my mini horse friends and breeders, I need some advice with a problem I am having breeding one of my stallions. He is having problems getting his hand in the glove, so to speak.

    Trouble Breeding Mare

    Okay so I would like to get some advice from you all knowledgeable breeders out there.... My mare Allula is a young mare who had a blue eyed bay pinto filly in 2011. We had lost the filly due to my now ex-husbands cruel heart (long story) and she didn't get out of the bag in time. I didn't...

    Best Time to Breed

    Hello All!! I am wondering what you think is the best time of the year to breed your mare? I am just starting out, and I want to be the best breeder I can be. I am only starting out breeding 1 mare at the moment, as that is all I have and plan on having for atleast this year. Thanks
