Friesian horses breed

Frisian breed was bred in Friesland (in other languages — Frisian) — the Northern province of Holland. This rock was formed during the occupation of Holland by Spain (XVI-XVII centuries). Therefore it is not surprising that the Friesian breed was produced by crossing local heavy draft breed with the Spanish breed of horses.

Exterior features

The legs of the horses Friesian hairy so expressive that all the other horses excessive vegetation on the legs are called friezes. The suit Friesian — black. Friesians are famous for fabulously long, magnificent mane and tail. When you look at the picture of this horse, it seems that the animal fell with the illustration of a children’s book about old castles, knights, dragons and princesses.

Friesian horse is characterized by a high-ranking neck with a light, a beautiful bend. The head of these horses are long, large, with a strong long ears and almost straight profile.

One of the main features of the exterior of the Friesian horse is a very dense and long brushes that cover the powerful bony legs from the hock and fall into large black hooves. This feature of the horse has become called freistatt.

All Friesians have a long and lush tail and mane. A “hallmark” of the breed was the black suit with no markings. Although it is worth noting that in the early XX century almost half of the frieze had a chestnut colour, and in medieval times it was possible to meet even Chubar representatives of the breed.

Friesian horses are different swinging and high speed, which makes them very effective at the trot. According to one version, because of the steep turn those horses considered weak — they spend too much energy on lifting the legs.

Remember that geriba the Mare should not experience shortages in the stern, and the food itself must be of high enough quality. This depends on the condition of the offspring of your horse.

Go for a walk?

Jeremie mares can be used in the works, but it is worth remembering that the work should not be difficult, exhausting. Let it be something light and casual responsibilities. And the closer to birth, the less should be of such duties and more just walking. Oddly enough, Jeremie mares love to walk in the pasture or in the paddock. Indeed, walking in good weather it is natural and good effect on physical and emotional health of the horse. However, walking is recommended not in isolation and not among stallions. For pregnant mares is considered best to choose as companions… such as pregnant mares is considered. Horses can feel more comfortable if the pregnancy will be the same period. If you have a small herd and pregnant mares is considered not, can come the old womb. Let the experience of bearing offspring is passed on from one generation to the next. If not in the group and the old uterus, it makes sense to release for walks horse under the supervision of the old gelding (necessarily extinguished sexual characteristics).

Pre-take care of the necessities for the future of the foal. Of course, they may not be necessary, however, if the demand for them is still there, it will be hasty and looking for them in stores can be cruel to the baby.

So, pick the foal a small bottle with a nipple, a few small waffle towels (waffle fragments of tissue), soft, rubber enema, the wool and the brilliant green (or hydrogen peroxide) to disinfect the navel.

In order to obtain a healthy, strong foal, it is best to prepare for the procedure vizerunki.

How to determine the approaching birth a horse

Mare with foal. Photo from argorus.ru

The duration of the period of pregnancy in mares depends on several factors: time of year, nutrition, sex of the foal, breed and is usually 11-12 months (in exceptional cases — from 310 to 412 days). Throughout this period it is advisable to be quite sensitive to the condition of the horse. And in the last month, the owner need to be especially careful when handling their Jeribai Mare. Please note the contraindications for pregnant mares is considered.

So, how to determine when direct delivery of the horse?

With the approach of the fetus swells the udder and from the nipple starts to separate colostrum. The horse begins to show some anxiety, refuses the offer of food, often looks back on his swollen belly, lies down and gets up again, starts sweating profusely (perhaps only sometimes) and push. This is the signs of approaching childbirth. At this point need to prepare the room: clean it and lay fresh bedding.

Riders experience shows that the delivery of the horses come mostly at night. Just most of the horses it is much easier to relax and give birth in the dark than in the light. Directly child last 20-40 minutes and usually disappear on their own, without complications. But if you care, you can insure, inviting veterinary specialist, who due to incorrect position of the fetus will be able to provide timely quality health care.

Immediately after birth the newborn foal with a cloth or small waffle towels clear the Airways of mucus. This is required in order for the baby to breathe. Usually a foal is born white in the fetal membranes in which lived the whole period of gestation, from the moment of conception. The baby was not breathing, a shell should be carefully broken right hands. If the fetal umbilical cord, which is associated with the foal and his mother, is still intact or broken at a distance of more than 10 cm from the abdominal wall of the foal, then her tie a durable string at a distance of 2-3 cm from the stomach of a newborn, and the rest is neatly cut processed in alcohol or prokipyachennymi scissors or a knife.

After the cut the umbilical cord of a newborn, first wipe with a towel, napkin or anything like that if not at hand, a straw plait. Typically, mothers have their own desire to lick the baby. Not worth it for her to interfere, after all it is instinct that is hard to fight.

Foals, unlike cats, are born with sight. Despite the thinness of the limbs, within hours, the foal is trying to stand up and get to the maternal udder. You should help him for the first time to find the nipple. Colostrum for a newborn is a true balm of life, so it is very important that the foal has its first portion in a timely manner.

How to deal with bad habits horses

How to deal with bad habits of horses

Views: 79308

Studies have shown that the increase in time spent feeding increases the likelihood of the horse’s abnormal behavior, which used to be called stall vices, and now — stereotypical behavior. It is defined as “the manner of behavior that a horse acquires, in a state of stress in an unnatural environment.” If you want to save a horse from such bad habits in the first place you should… more the horse for a walk!

Indeed, walks in the paddock largely normalize physical and mental condition of the horse. If your mentee is forced to spend long hours in the stall, you will have to create more comfortable conditions than we have now. It will have to make some changes in the equipment your stable.

First and foremost, at the opening of the door of the stall of the horse set of V-shaped metal bars. The bottom edge of the grille will prevent the rocking of the horse’s head, restricting movement. Yes, of course, this measure only saves the horse from the habit of shaking his head, jamming it in the open part of the door, however, does not relieve from the stress that caused the unwanted behavior. And some rocking horses head and behind the grill! Because the bars are not able radically to improve the situation.

Even if you smear with tar or other substance with an unpleasant taste door of the stall and all the other places that are gnawing from the horse, it is only going to protect these places, nothing more! A bad habit will remain and will manifest in something else, maybe in some more terrible form.

Some breeders against prichoski use special pricacy collar with metal arc. When you try to stretch your neck to prichoski the collar bites into the neck of the horse, creating painful sensations, thereby tokiwa from bad habits.

If you go to the vet with a complaint of go, then he probably will advise some antacid medications.

All of the above and similar methods and tools are good, but they correct established habit and not the cause habits. Because most experienced horse owners prefer to deal with bad habits is quite simple way — more frequent strolling horses in the paddock. However, if this is unavailable, e.g. due genikologa written content, then try to make sure that your pitomtsa had continuous access to silage and hay. After all, in nature the horse, and both in abundance, hence formed the habit of pinching the grass almost all day. So try to make your horse’s hay was enough!

Modern industry does not stand still and today to some horses to help special toys from bad habits. There is a very interesting (from the point of view of the horse) toys, of which food may fall when they roll on the floor.

Other bad habits horses read our next article.

Remember that no toy can not compare to human contact on pasture or in the paddock when training horses!

Draught breed: Brabancon

The dogs were bred in the late XIX century on the basis of two draught breeds: the Ardennes and flandersui. It is known that in the XX century the dogs were imported into the United States, Canada, and Russia.

Brabancon

Beginner breeders should immediately say that in equestrian literature found two Russian-language spellings of this breed Brabancon and Brabant. But they meant one and the same breed — the Belgian working draft horse (belgian brabant draft horse, belgian heavy draught). My dog’s name glorifies prigorodnoy Belgian province of Brabant, where was bred the horse.

The history of dogs goes into the middle ages. One of the ancestors of Brabancon — horse’s a Flanders — were then used in knight’s cavalry, under clad in heavy armor warriors. This breed is characterized by low withers (140 cm), but strong bones. It is with such qualities of horses needed for heavy rider: low growth, to be able to lift and throw over the horse’s back clad in heavy armor leg and good bone below the spine and legs of the horse did not break under the monstrous burden of a rider in armor.

Exterior features horse

Brabancon

The most common suit the Brabancon is made, but sometimes they are also red and Bay suit. A little less in the rock you can see the gray, Dun, or Palomino color. The light stripes on the legs grow long “stockings” of dark hair. The head of Brabancon not very big, expressive, stretched out a little stronger than in other breeds. The breed is also characterized by a wide forehead straight or slightly flattened profile; muscular hanagami, straight ears. Eyes too small, soft and expressive, the lips are thick and fleshy, nostrils wide. Strong neck, short and strong, broad at base, curved and well set. The back is powerful, muscular, long. The withers are low and wide, pinophytina line short, which is characteristic of the draught breeds, the back often caved in, the loin is broad, short. Croup is very developed, rounded, and double. His chest expanded and massive, the abdomen is broad and deep, with broad, rounded ribs. The dogs, like most other draught breeds have short legs with wide, strong articulation. It is thanks to your feet the dogs are characterized by great endurance: forearm muscular and powerful, pasterns wide in diameter and strong; hocks broad and thick, with a good bend angle, the tendons tight and lean. Grandmother the legs are short and covered as putevye joints, lush bangs. Hooves large, round, slightly flat, with a horn light shade. Unfortunately, some owners of dogs find the hoof rather fragile for such body mass.

Brabancon XX and XXI centuries is strong, tall and strong horse. Height at withers: average individual is around 160-170 centimeters, however, as an exception, sometimes there are dogs with the growth of 180 centimeters and above. Weighs Brabancon is also decent, as a rule, from 800 to 1000 pounds.

Application

Brabancon in Europe, the extremely popular farmer’s horse. In agriculture they still are used as working cart-horse. Indeed, these animals require less feed and care. In the mild European climate, the dogs are not prone to cold. Good owners of these horses are characterized by a calm disposition.

In world history, breeding Belgian dogs were used to breed the Soviet heavy and a number of West European heavy draft breeds of horses: Dutch, Rhenish, norisko, chairski, Suffolk and Clydesdale.

In conclusion, I would like to note that, in the opinion of many breeders, Belgian draft horse is one of the best and important (from a historical point of view) heavy draft breeds, and is considered to be one of the oldest breeds in the world.
