Are you lecturing me? Because it sure sounds like it. Anyway's the hole getting beat up happened in the same night...
I don't know how it happend exactly, wasnt there...
And if I had lots of money I would get a blood test, but like I said I don't trust the vet that comes to my little town.

An ultrasound here in Alaska (I am sure more expensive than elsewhere) is $115 including farm call. Those kind of costs should be expected in horse ownership.

I know that I haven't overstepped any of the bounds of this forum, nor have I even been rude. Profanity certainly does just that. I have always been polite and refrained from foul language in my posts, and have had numerous rewarding conversations with other members here.

Not everyone ultrasounds their horse, I understand that, but I was simply stating that it is certainly affordable. I also believe that it is irrisponsible to own horses and not expect unexpected expenses, and be financially prepared for it. I went on a trail ride one day, my horse got cut on a culvurt that was hidden in some brush, a few hours later, I had a $500 vet bill. That is life with horses.

I never lectured you, but in fact tried to make you feel better, and look at the brighter side of a possible unwanted/bizarre breeding that was certainly avoidable in the first place.

As for your horse getting what she wants when she wants:
Being bred by a miniature horse while injured?
Having a pitch fork thrown at her?
Not calling a vet because you don't trust him?

What kind of a response were you exactly expecting from posts like those?

I do believe a moderator should come clean up or lock this thread so that the young readers and all other readers for that matter don't have to read disgusting profanity while trying to discuss horses. There is no excuse for that kind of language on a forum like this. Express your displeasure with my response in another way.

No problem.

It sounds like you are really bummed about the situation. I hope it all works out okay. She may not even be in foal. If she is, you may fall in love with the baby as much as you love her.

Good luck. Feel better.

Why would YOU have to go if it was a stallion? Or was that a typo and it was supposed to say IT would have to go? That's too bad. Hopefully she didn't conceive and isn't pregnant after all.

hey there

Don't be too depressed about it. It should be a happy time for you if she is pregnant :) new life is a wonderful thing and even if it isnt planned, sometimes things can work out brilliantly :) who knows, you might get a beautiful little fella that can be as good for you as your girl is :) and if you can't afford to keep it when it grows up you may be able to sell it and a) make a little extra money ;) and b) make some other person very happy with a new little crazy cross (thats what I call cross breeds that you wonder 'how it happened' :))

On a more serious note and I really hope this doesnt offend but I think you really need to insist that things like pitch forks etc arent thrown at your horse. The list of reasons for this is long but the main one is its just not right, cruel in fact. I know you don't do it so im not having a go at you but maybe you can try and make sure you are the only one that deals with her if you can. If she is with foal then the the last thing she needs is any added stress.

Can you explain what you mean by beaten up? Do you think the stallion did it or someone else or even she did it by going nuts or something?

But hey, chin up! Its not so bad really :) foals are wonderful if not time consuming :) I hope things get better for you and im sure your mare will be A-OK :)
