Wow. Imon page 22 of the thread that you posted(thanksfor the link thinktwice), and Iam not even going to say anything. Based on how much you cussed on there, I think theyshould ban you beforeanything else happens. Just MHO though.And you never listened to anyones honest opinion on there, anyway. Just threw rude comments at them and they responded back. They tried to fight fire with water and fire with fire. Nothing worked.Maybe the big extinguisher should come out before it happens again. BTW, you should have put a third option on your poll:Buy. Because I don't breed( last time I checked my gelding couldn't get pregnant or be a stud), and I havent found anything I like at rescues, I bought. :)

You are so full of BS. Just the other month you were talking and talking about how you just had to BREED your mare, and GOD FORBID you take in another rescue. Make up your mind and stop lieing!!!!

Uh never did I say god forbid I take another rescue. . And to every one else I honestly don't care b/c every person on that other forum were all rediculosly rude.

I think the god forbid bit was her opinion about you taking another rescue. I read that and other people got rude after you got rude. They pointed out conformational faults in your mare that you seemed blind to and the fact that she had been sold because she was no longer suitable for breeding should have been warning bells to not breed her. Like it has been said how can you start something like this and insult people who breed when you wanted to do the same thing?

The biggest reason I wouldn't is because the rescue barns in my area insist on maintaining ownership of the horse, even though they expect the person taking the animal to pay for everything for it... So I wouldn't technically own an animal I rescued... Not cool... If I have a horse on my property, he's either mine, or his owner is paying for his care....
This is the sad reason that I wouldn't take most rescues either. To me, it's like buying a great piece of land that has restrictive covenents telling you what you can/cannot do.

WANTED. Key word. Meaning no longer interested in doing so.

But you were quite prepared to even when people had pointed out how unsuitable your mare was but to get back to the original question I would do neither, don't like auctions because it is rare to get a really good quality horse out of them and don't want to breed because I don't want the responsibility of raising a young horse and teaching it everything. I'd buy one suitable to my needs.

Alot of them are on here also

And I hate to brust bubbles, but you really shouldn't bash breeders, eps ones that breed good horses, when you where going to do the same with your not-so-decent confo mare.

She was banned on HGS, which is why she got on the bunny trail and skiped on over here I would guess. If you have time, you should go and read the other threads, just to see why kind of stuff she will *try* to dish out next.

I think it depends on what type of work you do with your horses. Here are a few perspectives.

Leisure Rider - wants a nice quiet horse to have fun with. Maybe rides a handful of times a month. If I were them I would rescue.

Racing Trainers/Owners - Obviously most of the time you cannot rescue one and bring back to full race training. So breed. Most also have mares they used to race that are now retired so they will breed those.

Competitive Riding - Might need/want a registered horse. So may need to breed to prove lineage. Also might want a younger horse and bring up in the training. If you are a lower level competitive rider than rescuing can be an option aswell.

As for me, I took in an aged gelding that was over used as a lesson horse. I also bought a young yearling from a breeder. I was going to adopt but the fees were outrageous and it was difficult to find a place that wasn't crazy with paperwork and rules. Must be within 50 miles, will NOT sign horses over, has the right to take the horse whenever they please if they feel like I am not taking proper care of said horse. To me buying my yearling was way easier, I know he is sound and sane.

Now, my next horse .. I will probably rescue. I bought the yearling because he will be my all around show/pleasure horse. I wanted a horse that was not scarred (both physically and mentally). However my next horse will probably be a rescue.

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.
