    BlacJaq, I believe that the OP has mentioned that she will keep the foal no matter how desirable or not it is. But I'm not yet awake enough (haven't had the morning coffee yet) to go back and re-read the entire thread.

    I just want to say that I believe you do have a valid concern in many cases, but in my opinion it is somewhat misdirected in this particular instence.

    Can I request more pics again? Or does that make me seem pushy???

    Perfectly said.

    BlackJaq, I can think of several instances/threads on this board where I would second your concerns and some where I would applaud them.

    Just not this instance and this thread.

    I agree!

    What the heck is happening to this board? It used to be so nice? Now it is toxic! No matter what thread I seem to look at. I too came back here thinking more pictures were posted. Sigh...OP, if you ever want to just send pictures to my home address just PM, I just love to look at lovely horses...

    I think the grand scheme of things, people going off the deep end this direction is better than the other direction though.
    If nothing else it makes people think before they breed.

    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.

    Alwaysbehind, I am NOT directing my "you"s here at you:)

    I agree with this statement, but if you want to "cause people to think before they breed" some consideration should go into the delivery of your comment(s) otherwise it tends to be counterproductive.
    A "horse forum" should be a place of education (is that not why were all here??). Owners communicating with owners...seeking, exchanging and gaining knowledge. Why not use your personal experiences, wisdom and express your opinions in a positive way, not use your opinions as a whipping stick. Do you want to educate or berate??

    Thank you to those of you who are actively participating in "educating" and voicing your opinions in a positive manner! You continue to make my experience here an enjoyable one! I'll keep the pictures coming :)

    There is no need for him to reproduce, someone give me 3 GOOD logical reasons?

    Why not just be happy with him as a beautiful and sweet gelding? He won't get any less pretty as a gelding.
