    Filly has a Rash on her Nose?

    Hello, I wanted to see if this is normal or should I treat it with something gentle? My filly born Aug. 7th., who we have named Sky has developed what I would call a rash on her nose. It's not visible in photos, so not bad, but I don't want it to get bad. I was told to put Tea Tree Oil on it...

    Heat while pregnant?

    How common is it for a mare to come into heat while pregnant? Like the month following first time bred. My mare is definitely pregnant, but she's showing signs early. Her mom normally carried late and only took one time breeding every time, so I don't know if my girl's early or on time. She...

    Few questions??

    Finally brought my baby home today!! >.> I actually stuck him in the back of my car and drove him home. I only lived like 1/2 a mile down the road. We made a tiny paddock for him and he's got a barn/calf barn to keep warm in. I have him in there as of now so the other horses can get used to...
