I Break Horses // Winter Beats


the shimmery synth arpeggio that opens i break horses‘ “winter beats” lays the foundation on which ascending layers of warm, translucent tones progressively envelope the listener in a ecstatic dream pop rhapsody. pierced only by singer maria lindén’s diaphonous coos, guitars, keys and drums jangle, swoon, crash, and, but for a hesitating breath, never cease rising until the track, in all its swelling fullness, soars to a thundering stampede. their debut lp, hearts, is out now via bella union.

    is that they are believed to be pubeererd. (You don’t know that great-grandpa was really a Lab without that AKC pedigree for the dogs.) What makes a puppy worth at least the price of caring for they mother before during and after the pregnancy, feeding and raising the puppies and paying for their intial shots and orming (done before they are ready to leave their dam) are these things:(1) Both parents (and their parents and grandparents etc) have all been examined for hereditary health porblems and cleared of any of the conditions. These include hip dysplasia elbow dysplasia, patellla displacement (kneecaps that pop out of place, cardiac, eyes, and thyroid. And yes, a dog can have these problems and not yet be showing symptoms. That is why he health checks are done. They aren’t cheap figure $750 or so PER dog for the parents.(2) They or their immediate parents and grandparents have earned their AKC conformation championship and or field trial titles (or for local buyers if they or their relatives are actual working hunting dogs)Unless the dogs being breed meet those two standards, you are talking pet puppies from a dubious genetic background with respect to their future health.You will have at least $75-125 in each puppy just to provide it with minimum care after birth. Start adding on the costs of the health clearances and even just the special food for the dam while pregnant and nursing, and makeing sure she is current on all vaccines Consider that Lab Rescue adopts out purebred Labs (already spayed/neutered) for around $150 -250, (And they have hundreds of pet qualtiy Labs around the country in need to homes.) A shelter charges less usually $50-75.Puppies in that breed who sell for $600 and up come from breeders whose dogs hold all the AKC titles listed and who have done all the health checks and in 43 years of training and handling,, I have never known a single breeder who does all that and sell their puppies for that kind of money who has ever MADE money on their dog.As a business propostion, it is a really bad idea. You will lose money on every litter unless you don’t take care of the dam and don’t provide the care needed for the puppies after birth which means they are liekely to be weak and not well.Call the local shelter.Contact Lab rescue: Talk to your vet about possible homes. You may get $100-200 for a puppy who had been wormed and vaccinated per the schedule for pups (3 sets of vaccinations by 13 weeks or so.) That would just about cover the cost of providing the puppies with minimal care so they stay fairly healthy.Remember, anyone who comes to see the puppies will want to see the parents in top condition healthy, well fed wih gleaming; coats and, if they are an informed buyer will ask about hip zrays at minimum; and virtually all buyers will want to know itf he puppies have been wormed and had their shots needef for the age they are at.You can’t make money to just break even on raising them withou spending money; and you can’t get a higher prices without spending a LOT of money on health screening test; and you won’t get the upper range prices without spending thousands on dog shows..,
