Ohh I Just read pulling from auctions. No, I will not. First all I went to ONE auction I my life. I didn't stay for the horse auction part (they had items before they auctioned the horses). It was the saddest place I have ever stepped foot in. I don't think I would be able to emotionally handle it and myself. I would end up with 100 horses and no where to put them .. seriously I would. I am getting upset just thinking about that day and it was years ago. As I write this though ... I want to go to an auction and rescue one lol! It's just so hard to pick one and leave the others =/
And barnprincess, you really did want to breed your aged mare, for who knows why and even if you decided you no longer do you still DID, and that is how many people DO feel. No, it's not right but don't put others down for feeling that way when you felt the exact same way about your mare.
Personally I don't like mares, and will probably never own one, so I will have no urge to breed haha.
