I think.... if you are the main repro vet at a practice, maybe have your holidays before & after the breeding season?
Tbh, Our practice has 2 very good repro vets, so always one available with general equine vet also good at washing out etc. Lucky to have a decent local practice with plenty of...
Its a shame you hadn't got someone local with some chilled available for the mare that ovulated. Both my mares caught after ovulation this year.
Fingers crossed your other mare took.
I personally would go for something lighter, TB or TBxWB to produce a nice eventer type. I have an IDxTB (Embla) who is my horse of a lifetime. They sell well as have a nice brain usually & can turn a hoof to most things.
Mine are living out, bit muddy near the fence but not too bad.
They both definitely are looking in foal now. Even with nearly a month between their due dates. One due in mid April, one mid May. Looking forward to seeing what they produce.
Cannot wait to see all the foal pics :-)
I am hopefully breeding one for myself, a chunky mare with a beautiful head & movement put to a german sire. I'm also breeding a dutch mare to a german sire for a more moden type, fingers crossed. Although until next year will have no idea what we come out with.
I am not a fan of some of the...
I've just looked at both sides of both.
The chestnut mare has 5 chestnuts going back to G.dams/sires on both her & the stallion.
The bay has 3 chestnuts that are G.dams/sires.
Both have Donnerhall in the mix
As we are on the colour theme...
I have a chestnut mare, out of a chestnut mare by a piebald in foal to a black stallion.
I also have a bay mare, out of a bay by a black in foal to a black.... any ideas?
Won't hold you to it tho ;-)
Thankyou Kathy657, yes, I am looking for a certain stamp, with train ability as that's important for dressage, with a nice temperament, confirmation etc.., there are stallions out there with these qualities & stamp their offspring too.
I only asked on here on the off chance someone had...
I am aiming for a dressage foal, depending on what it is will depend on me keeping it. Have a few stallions in mind just wanted to see if anyone had any they know stamp well. There may be one I hadn't thought of..
If you search OCD on here you will find loads of advice and info. My youngster was also labeled as dangerous, so he didn't have the correct treatment for his OCD. He should have had pressage boots on but my vet at the time said not worth it... if only I had ignored him! He had both hocks cleaned...
I too have a sack of the sour BY, my two will not go near it. The new BY they have sourced it fine and both will eat that, so I am happy not to have to order form elsewhere. CM have been very good, emails flying back and forth.
If anyone wants the sack of the stuff mine wont eat, I'm near...
How interesting, I have emailed the company I get mine from as my horses will not touch the new stuff. They had sent the wrong stuff at first then sent a bag of the 'right' stuff which they will not go near. I have wasted 3 days of feeds as they will not touch just tip over and jump in it!
Hi there, my youngster at aged 3 showed lameness, he has OCD, in both hocks and stifle. He had arthroscapy and they cleaned up the hocks but the damage to the stifle is untreatable.
He is now rising 5, in gentle work, ie schooling 3 ish times a week and has started hacking again. He has been...
That doesn't look very nice, I would be tempted to speak to the vet that did the op, send them this pic and ask them?
Mine had a swelling, after castration, it went a bit manky. I cold hosed it and kept it clean. The problem had been he had tucked up the left testicle, making it really hard to...
Having read this post, I am amazed that some people think its too much like hard work to care for an animal with an allergy to midges.
My homebred developed this, much to my dismay. He wears a sweetitch hoody and a fly mask, when I can keep them on and has brewers yeast.
I wouldn't swop or...
