Hey everyone

I have been thinking the last couple of days about putting together a file with the different stages of pregnancy and udder deveploment. I do not know how it will end up like but I would like to try it.

Here is what I would like to know and have:
-Pictures of the pregnant mare (side view) and udders from day 320 on till foaling.
-Please include with the pictures how many days the mare is.
-Is she a maiden or season broodmare.
-Had she been on fescue or not.

Please email all this too me at ravenhurst@bellnet.ca I will keep everyone updated or at least try as I am putting this together for your opinions on how it looks.

Thanks

Hi Rebecca and welcom. The age of the mare and stallion really depends on the horse itself. But most people dont breed a young stallion until at least 2 years old and sometimes they even wait until 3 or 4. For mares they can have a foal pretty easily most of their life but me personally I don't like to breed a mare until they are at the very least 3 years old, I have one mare that is 3 now I thought about breeding her this year but decided to wait since I think she needs another year to mature more. And if they are a maiden and old that just depends I would talk with a vet about that, I have a maiden mare we bred this year that is 13. If they have had foals before usually they can have them until later i life. Some people even breed up in the 20's. But I would say talk with your vet about your personal mare. All cirucmstances are different and each mare is different. Hope that helped some. What kind of mare do you have?

Rebecca, first of all congratulations on your baby. Second I know just what you mean about being a city girl and turning country lol. I did that exact thing about 5 years ago. I had always loved horses but my family always lived in the city and I could never have one for that fact. As soon as I got maried I told my husband (also a city boy) I wanted to move to the country and I wanted horses, and lots of them lol. So about 5 years ago we moved out here and we now have 9 horses, 3 stallions, and 6 mares. I am still learning things but I have come a long way. We have foaled out 3 foals so far and next year we are expecting 5 (all in one year I am stressed about that lol). I have found this board is a great place to talk with ones that have a lot of experience and know more than me. Afterall the best way to learn is ask questions, even dumb ones lol. I know I asked my share of dumb quesitons, I still have some too . And WOW foaling at one awful. Thats like a baby haveing a baby.
At least she is old and more ready to foal. If you breed her now she will be 5 when she foals, that is a good age.

I have quarter horses also. And one Paint Stallion. We raise Champagne horses. I have always loved the color and that was what I always wanted. Will this be your first foal?

HI Rebecca,
You would be welcome to join this forum,
http://groups.msn.com/Stallionhandlingandtraining/_whatsnew.msnw
it has more "conversation" type talk and lots of EVERYDAY discussion about stallions; fencing, taking them away from home, socializing, feeding, promotion etc.
It isn't like this group as a source of repro info, but fun and helpful on other topics...
Lori

Rebecca thank you. I am busting my butt today getting ready for a horse show. We are showing our Perlino yearling colt. he did really well at letting me get him ready but when it came time for the ears to be clipped, boy he did not like that one bit lol. But with a little work he eventually let me clip them and they look good now. I plan on getting some nice pictures of him while he is clean, I know he won't stay that way long lol.
Do you have pictures of your horses you can post?
