You have to buy that pony OMG and you could just have him as a companion little buddy.

He’s 500 dollars, and I already have 5. Stop encouraging me.

Hello! I found a really cute foal a couple of hours away from my house and I'm totally obsessed with her, and I'm seriously considering buying her. The problem is I've never raised a foal before, the youngest horse I've had to handle was a yearling and my mom was doing most of the handling at the time. The little filly I'm looking at is 5 months old. Could you give me an idea of what taking care of a baby might entail?

at 5 months it’s just been weaned so it is no longer dependent on the mare’s milk and should be eating grain by now. Foal’s will typically start to eat grain within the first few weeks of life. You’ll need to buy feed specially made for weanlings/babies her age. Your local feedstore can help you with that since there’s all sorts of brands. Feed according to weight, you can use a weight tape or an educated guess, most feed bags have weight to feed ratio on them somewhere. If it doesn’t consult a vet. They need plenty of good quality access to hay and grass. You can add supplements like grow colt into the feed as well. Babies are more susceptible to parasites and must be dewormed on a monthly basis. Ask if the foal has been dewormed and had her vaccinations. The first worming should be 30-70 days after birth (I recommend 70), waiting till they are weaned or older to deworm and then deworming with the wrong type of dewormer can cause roundworm compaction and cause the foal to colic. So it’s very important you find that out. Use this website to know when to vaccinate and what kind of dewormer to use at certain stages of life. Babies need exercise and affection, but too much affection can be bad cause they’ll start to see you as a herd member and will get pushy, nippy, and try to play with you. It may be cute sometimes, but a disrespectful foal will turn into a disrespectful horse. And hopefully the filly is already broke to lead, cause it’s not going to be fun if she’s not. I wish you the best.

If anyone is looking for an incredible hunter/jumper prospect on the east coast diaryofaworkingstudent's employer is selling one and it's kind of a dire situation. If he's not homed he might be put down due to financial stuff.

Or you know, they could donate or ask a rescue rather than putting a horse down for such a stupid reason, their exboss is not bright. 

diaryofaworkingstudent tag me in a post, or submit me some pictures of him and I’ll help spread the word to get Buddha a home.

Are these horses for sale?

most are, but I will usually not link if someone asks cause I don’t remember where each and every one came from. I usually only add links to underweight, emaciated, and horses I feel like need immediate homes.

I don’t think I’ll ever understand halter horses. Or why people would want to breed an N/H stallion.

craigslisthorses, thoughts? Their whole breeding stock is built like this.

I think they need to take all those straight ass toothpick legged trainwrecks and geld/spay so they will never reproduce.
