    Foal
    *Sigh* Drama.

    Ok so heres the story. In 2009 I bought a yearling stud colt. I am boarding him close to my house. Anyways last year for awhile he was pastured next to a mare. He was gelded in March of this year and he's never, ever been studdy or pushig. He's never talked at the mare, and before I got him he was pastured with mares and geldings, clearly unaware of his manhood.

    So the woman who owns this mare recently moved her to a new barn. She calls me up the other day and tells me she thinks Kate ( the mare) is in foal because of some people at the new stable saying she is ''fat''. Apparently she's developing a bit of a teat. I don't nknow if that's true or not because She just moved the end of August and I looked her over before she left. She also was winking and peeing in the geldings faces in the middle of August.

    Anyways she thinks Dak ( my horse ) jumped the fence into her horses feild and bred her. Since neither the barn owner, Kates owner or myself had found Dak in Kates pasture, Im thinking its very unlikely that he jumped into her pasture, bred her, then jumped back out. Also I don't think he could have bred her through the fence without damaging the fence or himself as the pannels are metal and they're not the strongest in the world. They wouldve bent, and or he wouldnt scraped himself somewhere.

    So she's having a vet out the end of this week and I guess she will let me know. My question is how many of you think this mare couls actually be pregnant? Could it be hay belly or false pregnancy? She's only ever had 2 foals that Im aware of. Also, what sort of legal action can I take to be compensated if she turns around and makes 5000 off the foal? ( I live in Canada).

    Ugh.. I hate drama, anyways if you stuck through to the end thanks for reading

    If the mare is preggers and not just fat, I think you should be more worried about a lawsuit from her owner, than thinking you're owed something if she manages to actually sell that mutt foal.

    I have hard time to believe that he jumped in, bred her and then JUMPED BACK. I've just never heard about this happening. Through the fence - I don't know, I'm not sure how tricky it is.

    But if it is pregnant, you can always do the DNA testing to see if it's by your boy.

    Foal
    ...Uhm ouch on the mutt foal part. They're not bad looking horses. But I wouldnt be held liable from what I understand because I did not put the mare next to my colt, the barn owner did. I wasn't even aware of it until they'd been living next to eachother for amost a week, so If it happened it couldve happened before I even knew she was there.

    I recently went through a similar situation where my studdish acting gelding was being accused of 'breeding' every mare in the barn. In the long run, he was in fact a gelding but he did mount the mares. Either way....if he did actually manage to breed her mare you will certainly be looking at some vet bills. I wouldn't be thinking about how much she is going to make off of a foal (5K for a foal in canada...I am in the wrong country!) but about how much it was going to cost me to get her to go away.

    Foal
    Kitten_Val, He was the only ungelded horase on the farm at the time and she's been there since before he got there, so Im pretty sure it would just be a waste of money on the Dna test ha ha. But the timing would mean he'd of had to have bred her in like october?

    I agree, I would be a little scared she should be suing me for vet bills, not the other way around.

    Look at it this way, she didn't want her mare bred and now, if pregnant, she will incur vet bills and risk her mare's life and health. Hopefully she isn't pregnant though.

    No matter how nice Dak is, I'm sure the mare owner doesn't think he's God's gift to mares.

    Yes, Mutt. Do you like the term grade better. Not registered = mutt or grade. Not a dig, just a fact.

    I totally miss how you expect monies here.

    Foal
    Corino, 5k was just an example ha ha, im sure it wouldnt be that much. As I said before I shouldnt be held resposible if vet bills are involved because I did not okay my horse to be there. That was the barn owners move. Then again she could always try to come after me, afterall I was accused of putting him in with her when no one was around. But what does everyone make of the winking in August?

    To be honest I think it should be on BO. Many farms around here do NOT accept studs for that very reason they are studs and can breed. Unless the farm is appropriately occupied to handle the stallion (or dumb enough to just take it in and hope nothing will happen).
