Who run the world? Girls! It’s an introduction we frequently use on posts or articles about mares. Why? Stallions in our industry receive a lot of advertising whereas the mares usually are overlooked a bit. People tend to forget that a good mare is just as crucial in getting a nice foal – if not even more as she is the one who raises the baby, the character will reflect on it. Responsible breeders however, have cherished their broodmare bands for a long time, knowing what they add to a future champion. We have talked to two German breeders about how they choose their broodmares.
It’s getting colorful again: This Sunday, we will introduce an AQHA/APHA stallion called The Original One. We have talked to owner Freja Olsen about this multiple European Champion stallion.

Everything in the horse industry is full of challenges. Some are harder or annoying, some are fun. The one we are going to deal with in this article definitely one of the latter: finding the perfect name for a newborn foal. You want it to sound good, be creative or funny, bear meaning and – ideally – match the horse’s looks or personality. While some people tend to create a mix out of the sire’s and dam’s names, other breeders are more free and creative. We have talked to three breeders who have each told us how they choose show and barn names for the newborns.
