Then we get the people you can only shake your heads at.

Quarter Horse For Stud, Minnesota, Waterville

Stallion...age 2 offered for breeding but looking at the description I notice that they have foal expected from him in the spring of 2009 which means it was bred as a yearling stud colt !

Nope, didn't miss the graphic. It was a highly illustrative anti-breeding slogan-- graphic, but not necessarily sarcastic, IMO.

I'm sorry that I didn't realize you were being sarcastic, as I was reading the words exactly as you wrote them, not attempting to infer or assume anything else.

One of the drawbacks of typed communication-- it can be pretty tough to recognize sarcasm without voice inflection, facial expression, or if all else fails, winky emoticons.....

Alrighty. Then.

Back to the original topic-- here are some pretty informative articles regarding breeding, that all mention the pros and cons and/or general guidelines of using of 2 year old stallions for breeding, among other things.

No i disagree. Photography of sexual content is prohibited here (if i remember correctly) to "keep it clean". sorry to ruin your "fun", whatever, i know kids can use the internet but i dont think the forum wants to support those images.

I think it's ridiculous to tell people to STOP breeding. There isn't an influx of horses, there's an influx of bad horses. Comparing BYB to quality sporthorses selling in the tens of thousands is somewhat ridiculous. Not to mention, the people breeding quality sporthorses have no interest in having a horse sell for a few hundred bucks after they spent thousands just producing the foal. They're smart enough to realize when to back off for a season or two.

And quite frankly, slaughter WOULD help. Slaughter was never the issue, the methods used were the issue. Right back to the old song and dance of everyone having the answer and nobody knowing the question. So now we have a massive influx of badly bred horses who are being abused, starved and neglected ANYWAY because nobody can afford to feed them, and can't even afford to put them down unless they know how to use a gun.

I would personally never breed to a 2 year old stallion. I don't have a huge issue with it, but I would just never use a stallion that didn't already have some accomplishments. And heck, those accomplishments could be just siring champions, I don't believe a good stud also has to be a good showhorse. A lot never get that chance because of personal reasons or injuries, etc. But I expect at LEAST some quality foals to look at before I'd consider using a stud.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
