    What do you have in your foaling kits?

    I'm a first time breeder (although have had horses all my life) and my maiden mare is due to foal mid-July (give or take). She will foal at home and I'm just starting to get everything sorted so I'm well prepared. Can I ask what do you have in your foaling kit? Thank you

    Who is expecting what in 2015?

    Lovely to hear about people's impending arrivals. My graded Dutch mare (by Kimberley KWPN) is awaiting her (and mine) first foal by Midnight Runner (by Contract Law). She's not due until 18th July but I'm feeling scared and excited all at the same time!

    Serano Gold

    I had a couple of goes via AI with Serano Gold on my maiden mare. She didn't take but my vet was extremely impressed by the quality of the semen (chilled), fantastic motility and density! I would have loved her to have been in foal to him as I was very impressed by him but sadly we had to go...

    Tell me about Richelshagen (Rubinstein) x Purioso breeding

    He stands at Week Orchard Stud, not far from us, here in Cornwall. It would be worth calling them and having a chat. ��

    Broodmare rug...

    Another vote for Amigos, my rather large WB mare still fits her nicely, despite the ever expanding tum.

    Dever Saddles - Any Reviews??

    I borrowed a Dever saddle when I bought my new horse. Personally I wasn't impressed with it, I thought the underside panels were rather small and didn't spread the pressure well. I also found it bloody uncomfortable. Personally I wouldn't recommend them.

    Moving to Cornwall, need vet and farrier recommendations!

    Firstly welcome to Kernow, best place in the world to live! :-) Another vote for Harleigh Vets, although they are now called Kernow Vets as they have merged with a couple of other practices. Particularly recommend Ron Fraser there. Can recommend Andrew Prout farrier, although he is based...

    Danish Warmblood - Graded?

    One of the best horses I ever had was a Danish Warmblood gelding, he was by Don Schufro. I don't know if it's any help but Don Schufro's dam was called Fiesta. Here is my boys pedigree, not sure if it's the same Fiesta.

    Arena Builders - any recommendations (Cornwall/Devon area)

    Wonder if you guys could help me. We are in the process of doing our research for a decent company to build our new outdoor school this summer. As it's a huge financial commitment, we really do want to find the best people to do it. We average over 80 inches of rainfall a year, but last year...

    Dressage stallion suggestions

    I really rate Don Schufro but he is not cheap! Also Woodlander Supertramp, but it really does depend on your mares strengths and weaknesses. I am using Serano Gold on my mare this year, but he's by Sandro Hit, so no good for you. What about Wenkenstern (by Weltmeyer) he's standing at...

    Tell me about Saluki/saluki crosses

    There is a reason those Co Durham Salukis are cheap, the words "bargepole" and "don't touch" spring to mind!

    Saluki cross moulting!

    Was your saluki cross living outside? I've had a few saluki cross lurchers, who were rescues and used to live outside, it took a while for their coats to adjust to living indoors with central heating and the moulting was rather copious! My short haired was the worst so I used to put the...

    good saddle cloth&half pad recomendations?

    Im not impressed with Lemieux half sheepskin numnahs right now. My husband bought one (with shim inserts) for his hunter. It was only ever washed on a wool cycle with Woolskin wash and allowed to dry naturally. The sheepskin is unglueing and coming apart from the numnah. Won't be buying one...

    Mare poss in foal with toothache for sale...

    With the greatest respect to everyone (especially to OP for bringing this ad to light), it might be better to say no more about this ad as it is 'in hand' and I'm sure no-one would want to jeopardise the case. :-)

    Tell me about Saluki/saluki crosses

    Lovely to see a thread about Salukis (and crosses). I've had a few saluki lurchers over the years, all rescues, and all quirky in their own way! I now have a saluki x sloughi rescue Lurcher who is very firmly bonded with me but is pretty straightforward as long as managed correctly and I also...

    how sad and shameful

    Ms Knight has always sailed pretty close to the edge when its come to her horses, money has always been an issue, but common sense was in pretty short supply. She should have stuck with the one horse that she started with (the lovely Kira) but once she manage to rent that field for a cheap...

    Thinking WAAAAYY into the future but stallion suggestions?

    What about Serano Gold, Although he is by Sandro Hit, he is not a typical Sandro horse. I'm putting my mare to him next year.

    Best vehicle to tow with??

    We had an L200 and had to get rid of it! it was, as my husband stated, gutless, very unimpressed with it. We bought an Isuzu D-Max, and although truck itself is great, we've had problem after problem, mainly electronics and software with two new trucks in a row. If you are thinking of a pick...

    Anyone recommend a stallion ....

    My Dutch WB mare is also long backed and can be sharp (but she knows her job). I did a lot of research to find the right stallion and have gone for the lovely Serano Gold (Sandro Hit x Futuro x Grundstein), although he is by SH, he has a super temperament and is not your typical SH type. He...

    Getting late in the year?

    Im a first time breeder to and due to complications my mare only came into season a few days ago (had to have an op in May). Despite having paid for an AI package at my vets and the stud fee for my chosen stallion, I've decided to put a hold on things and start again next year. We live on the...

    Anyone using Serano Gold (Oldenburg) this year?

    I was planning to use him on my Dutch mare also Brooksmarle, but unfortunately she had to have an operation on her foot and it caused her to go into anoestrus, so no AI'ing for her this season, but have spoken to Jennie and will try again next year. Just to frustrate me further, she came into...

    Follicles not growing - experiences please

    Spring Feather, thank you, that is helpful. My mare was cycling regularly and obviously before the op, but I think that combined with the box rest has not helped.

    Follicles not growing - experiences please

    I'm a first time breeder and my mare is a maiden mare (12 yr old Dutch WB mare). I have a great AI vet who is very experienced and has a high success rate at AI. My mare had an internal scan to check everything was as it should be and it all looked healthy. She had her first Prostaglandin...

    DRESSAGE: what are your thoughts on this mare? any potential?

    She looks nice enough, but doesn't make me go wow. She doesn't look like she steps under herself particularly well and she isn't particularly uphill. I guess it really depends to what level you want to ride at.

    what breeding lines?

    I very nearly went with Woodlander Supertramp as my stallion choice for my mare, lovely looking stallion, nice modern type. I had a long chat with Lynne Crowden about him and liked what I heard, but when it came down to it, as a first time breeder I decided to go with something proven, so went...
