so many beautiful big babies, I just love every one of them, Riley is looking like the beautiful boy that he is! Elena he does not look dirty to me, but remember he is a boy and boys like the dirt. As for my filly always looking clean umm I hate to say it but I take pictures of the cleanest sides giggle....but she does love the hose and I hose her every chance I get. Peggy looking forward to seein a picture of Boston he sounds huge, how tall are his parents? Thanks kim on the complement of my girl I think so too, but then again I love all of the babies...they do not come ugly as far as I am concerned. And you and everyone else here have so drop dead gorgeous foals to call your own! Hannah nice colt you got there and built! WOW!Sandy D

Jan H and everyone... Heres my Jericho at 2 months and 2 days old...hes really growing fast the last week...cant hardly believe it, he doesnt even have a baby look any more, he looks like a little horse! Tsaharah is fat and happy on no hay or grain,just pasture and gaining weight! as of now no babies for me next year, so i will keep tabs on all of your waiting! Jerichos legs are looking great! little to no bend now...i am so pleased, because now he is next to perfect!no (bragging "mom" i guess) I havent measured, but just by guessing he is probably over 44 inces now,which doesnt seem to big compared to an all QH, but for a 1/2 arab i think hes dong pretty good, his body has lengthened so much! He has a well baby vet visit on july 3rd for all his shots and his legs to be checked out. anyway heres a couple pics... this is Jericho and his big yearling sister Precious, she is 14.2 hands at 15 months. http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e222/krismoos/100_8168.jpg http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e222/krismoos/100_8184.jpg and here he is looking adorable!Hannah Mills

Everyone, My little boy is going to be 5 weeks old on Sunday, i have just been to measure him and he currently stands at 42inches (or 10.2hands) Is that big/small/average? Both mum and dad are 16.1hh, so i was hoping for around that, however some friends have told me he will only make around 15.2, is that correct. Have a look at him for yourself.................... http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g59/hkvmills/foal033.jpg This was taken at nearly 4 weeks. Would appreciate your comments?!? Thank youHeather Kutyba
Breeding StockUsername: Heatherck11Post Number: 257Registered: 01-2006Posted on Thursday, July 06, 2006 - 10:37 am:
Hannah, I have seen huge foals grow up to be small horses, and small foals grow to be 17 handers...so don't fret too much on your fellow. He is a striking young colt! There is one way to get some relative idea of how big he will be, but he needs to be close to 6 months old. This has been confirmed by many of the breeders in my area....and I've checked my boy as well since he's almost 6 months. When he's around 5 months or so, you can measure like this: Measure the length from mid-knee to the coronary band. Go straight down...use a string and set it in the middle of his knee (use the side of the leg, not front....) and take it down to the coronary band...no bend, just straight. Measure with a ruler and see how many inches. However long this is (say 15 inches), will be the relative expected heighth of the horse at maturity.Ruth

My filly was last measured at 1 month and she was 12.2hh. She's 3 months now, not sure how much bigger she is. At 24 hours old she was as tall as a Clyde foal my vet had been out to see, and heavier on the weight tape, although not as long.Jan H

Kris he is gorgeous! Such a handsome man Jericho is! I think he is going to be a nice height. Ruth would like to see your filly in a picture wow 12.2 at only a month old? unreal, what is her breeding how tall is the sire and dam? I bet she is nearly 14 hands by now.Kris Moos
Breeding StockUsername: KrisPost Number: 817Registered: 01-2006Posted on Thursday, August 03, 2006 - 12:35 pm:
Thank you Jan! I am guessing he should be around 15+, mom is 15, dad is 15.3. I hope for a 15-15.1. I think his wild man picture is funny, it makes me think of him grown up, if he stays looking good comformationally like that i'd almost think of keeping him intact, my neighbor has already asked, wnats me to breed her filly in 2 years...hmm illhave to think about that!Jan H
Breeding StockUsername: Jan_hPost Number: 393Registered: 01-2006Posted on Thursday, August 03, 2006 - 10:23 pm:
Kris, He has the build, next thing to watch is his temperment, some studs can be a handfull once the testosterone kicks in, but I do like him and if he is as nice in his actions as he seems in his physical assesment I can see him as a stud horse how is his pedigree?Kris Moos
Breeding StockUsername: KrisPost Number: 819Registered: 01-2006Posted on Thursday, August 03, 2006 - 10:38 pm:
his pedigree is good on both ends! he is out of an AQHA zan parr bar grandson and has 95%foundation lines on sires side(hancock, badger george), atheletic cow and performance horses, his dams side is also as nice, but from a halter pleasure side(you know arabs that is what they are most know for). His grand sire was Medallion stallion for many years at the fall festival here in MN and was shown across the country (Sanbara Tsalli, out of Tsalibration)VERY quiet and friendly man, he was gelded a year or two ago at age 24 or 27 and was turned over to a kids riding school horse...as sweet as can be!!! my mare was shown halter as a weanling, won 3rd several times at class A shows and then put out to pasture till i got her as a yearling. she is a docile as can be under saddle! (not real psture friendly but is an anyone riding horse, she has been ridden by many first timers, adults and kids). Jericho seems pretty level headed...much more than my full arab foals! He is real friendly and fairly well mannered for a 3 1/2 month old colt. My concern is he already knows he is a man! He likes to nip and mount my yearling, dropped and everything! hes a bit too short though. ( He has had both testicles dropped since birth.) he is a very mouthy boy, gets nippy once and a while with me, but from what i have read that is fairly normal at this age...we get after him real quick when he does! but he stands tied, trims, but doesnt like water...were working on that! thanks jan for the comfirmation on my thoughts...i thought he was very well put together...but i thought i may be just partial... good to know someone else agrees. Do you agree witht he thoguht that at 4 months old is a close assesment to adult comfirmation?Ruth
Nursing FoalUsername: RootyPost Number: 12Registered: 07-2006Posted on Monday, August 14, 2006 - 03:57 pm:
Jan, the kicker is her dam is only 15.2! She has these enormous babies, and with the difficulty she had delivering this one (I did not think the foal would be coming out alive) we have made the decision not to breed her again. Her yearling is already 15.2 at least. The foal's sire is Art Deco, and the mare is out of a CSH mare by Roar of the Crowd, but her sire is unknown - the breeder's neighbour's palomino. I'm not sure how big the filly is now, but she sure towers over our donkey!Lori aka " Raven"

Well for those of you who would like to know I measured up Chu kash last night on his pastern bone to the coronet band and he measures up to 16 1/4 inches. Which if I am correct in saying that Chu kash should top off to a nice heigth of 16.1h when matured. He is now 7 months old. Yep he has legs!! How tall are the rest of your foals coming alone?????Hannah Elizabeth Lough
Nursing FoalUsername: 20hannah10Post Number: 19Registered: 06-2006Posted on Wednesday, October 04, 2006 - 08:37 pm:
Thats great about Chu Kash!! can you explain to me how you did that i would love to estimate how tall she will be. She is only 3 months now, is it too early to measur her leg yet? I havnt measured her lately I will and post it. but she is really filled out and all muscle...the perfect barrel racer !!YAY!!Lori aka " Raven"
Breeding StockUsername: RavenPost Number: 449Registered: 03-2006Posted on Wednesday, October 04, 2006 - 09:59 pm:
Hannah, if you scroll up some and find a post from Heather she does explain how to measure the leg and at what age is best for it. But for fun you probably would be able to measure along the way and see if there is any change in the growth. If I am not mistaken then at a year old will be the final measurment of the leg. Correct me if I am wrong. You would appreciate Chu Kash's pedigree he has all Cash N Balance lines. Both parents were barrel racers. Good luck with your filly!Jan H
Breeding StockUsername: Jan_hPost Number: 427Registered: 01-2006Posted on Thursday, October 05, 2006 - 10:10 am:
well I measured that way too and Checota should mature out at 16.2 she is 16.3/4 inches from mid knee to coronary band I am going to need a five step, step ladder to mount her. gee whiz. They are growing like weeds. Lori if we ever breed Chu Kash to Checota, We will have no problem with any height differences they sound like they are going to mature the same height. Checota is 6 months old now.Hannah Elizabeth Lough

Raven, that is amazing! do you plan on barrel racing him? I love it! I have trained two of our foals born on the farm and they have turned out the best, they are soo willing to please. This filly will be my first quarter horse so I am very excited she defenitly has speed but it might take her a while to figure out she can be speedy with us on her back, she so gentle. Good luck with all the foalsLori aka " Raven"
Breeding StockUsername: RavenPost Number: 450Registered: 03-2006Posted on Thursday, October 05, 2006 - 04:56 pm:
Jan, do you think we would end up with some tall foals from that mix? Better start putting some money aside for that step ladder. (giggle) I have a two year old in the barn for training and Chu kash is just about the same size. Your godson is doing very well! Hannah, no barrel racing for Chu kash he will be shown in halter till he is able to ride than he will be trained for HUS. What other types of horses do you have on your farm besides qh?Jan H
Breeding StockUsername: Jan_hPost Number: 430Registered: 01-2006Posted on Friday, October 06, 2006 - 02:11 pm:
wonderful to hear that my Godson is doing well, of course they will be tall Checota is Dash For Cash lines on his dams side and Jack straw on her sires side, since Checotas dam is an appendex 1/2 QH 1/2 TB the height genes are there! Dam is 15.3 Sire is 16.1 I just love AQ and I love appendex horses. best of both worlds the endurance of the TB and the speed of the QH and manuverability of both. But each breed breeds so many wonderful qualities so I have to say I know very few horses I do not like. Hannah Elizabeth Lough

I had a nice description of all my horse types out then it deleted!!! **My current barrel racer is an all black TWH at first I was doubted but she really loves it she has great speed but most of all she so sure footed and can dig into the dirt and turn with all her might. She was born in our back yard and trained in our back yard i like to say...people ask me all the time where i got her. **Sky is an overo QH shes trained in western pleasure but she's the mare that just had the baby so we havnt shown her yet. she has the most willing personality. **Roxy is the filly she is 3 1/2 months (im going to measure her today) shes a sweethart she still like to lay down and have me rub her belly. I can't wait to start training her she soo muscular. ^^Thoose three are mine^^ **my mom has a 17.2 tri colored spotted saddle horse, we kick our selves everyday for gelding him. hes the type of horse that LOVES people and he was beat in a small stall when he was little and it crushed his spirit after we gelded him he is the biggest baby. ** My step dads horse is also a spotted saddle horse, he wants me to train him to barrel race but his legs are very small still so i'm going to watch and see how he developes. those are our babys we have some mares and board a couple other but we like having our own foals born on the farm and training them our selves. They have the best personality.Lori aka " Raven"

Hannah, You have quite the selection of horses there. I have never heard of a TWH that is a barrel racer. That must be something to see. Did not think they had enough speed. But I guess you have proven them wrong. You go girl!!Hannah Elizabeth Lough
WeanlingUsername: 20hannah10Post Number: 22Registered: 06-2006Posted on Saturday, October 07, 2006 - 07:01 pm:
a horse is the modle of what you train it to be, I bet a hundred years ago when all the quarter horse did was plow the land and race the quarter mile. There owners NEVER thought they would do that super slow almost fall like lope it is truely amazing what we can train them to do. and why we train them to do such unnatural things lol. What horse actually wants to go run around three barrels? none untill u train them too after that, they wake up thinking about it.

ok, i have just measured Griffin, and he is now 13hh at 4 months. Does that make him small, medium or large, im hoping he will end up being about 16hh-16.2hh. I measured his leg (i know its a bit early) and it read nearly 17inches from mid knee to coronary band!! Surely i must have measured wrong, that will make him HUGE!!Jan H
Breeding StockUsername: Jan_hPost Number: 438Registered: 01-2006Posted on Tuesday, October 10, 2006 - 01:14 pm:
Hannah Mills I think he will mature at 16.1 or 16.2 how tall are the parents? guessing between the two will give you a pretty close estimate to how tall he will mature. he is a sweet looking boy you got there.Please note that opinions, product information, advice or suggestions posted on this bulletin board are not necessarily those of the management at barisalcity.org nor does the maintenance of the post position indicate an implicit or any endorsement of that information, opinion or product.Further, although we have the greatest respect for the posters offering assistance here, you are advised to seek a consultation with your veterinarian prior to using information obtained from this board if it is of a veterinary nature.
