To the OP, you have nothing to apologize for, so please don't. You have a beautiful stallion who is unpapered for now, who cares, I have always owned unpapered horses as they are all I can afford and I have had a lot of success with them. If you were talking about shipping out 500 batches of semen a year, it would be different, but you are not. So you have my 100% support, whether you decide to try for a foal yourself or geld. It doesn't matter, it is your horse and despite what some people might think, it is your decision. As soon as they start paying for that horse and its care, it could be their decision. I believe you to be responsible and I believe you care, so I support you in your choice. And poop it, I NEED more pics of him, can you get on that (you must in some way feel my foot on your rear
Blackjaq, I think your views are somewhat unrealistic. It is not possible for anyone to guarantee a horse a home for its entire life, anyone of us could die tomorrow.
My first horse was owned by me from preteens to late teens. Then we had a house fire, we were not insured for the amount of the damage and this bankrupted my dad. I could afford the board, just, but nothing else, so I gave me horse away when I could have sold her for a good chunk of change. I did this because I knew she went to a good home, what happened after that is unknown. If your notion is that we should only own horses if we can keep them til the day they die, then we are all better off not having them, as sometimes life just happens.
I don't follow fugly but from what the owner of this horse has expressed she is not some nut job, nor is she a breeder for the cash. I would suggest that you read her posts before you spout off anymore.
