I wonder if proximity to accidental breedings is related to the circles one runs in.
I suspect you are on to something there. I have, in the past, boarded at barns where stallions were kept, and there were never any accidents the entire time I was there. Stallions were kept in appropriate facilities, and colts were weaned and gelded before it could become an issue.
I know one person who bought an unexpectedly pregnant mare. She was quite new to horses and got taken advantage of by a sketchy barn. No surprise there, and probably not an accident, either.
