True enough. One of our neighbors keeps horses this way. They were actually surprised when they went out to their pasture the other morning and found that one of their mares had foaled. :roll: What did they think would happen?!? No plan whatsoever for the foal... they didn't even know the mare was pregnant. Neither the stallion nor the mares are of breeding quality. *sigh*

These are just newer owners who tried to be responsible by separating thier stallion and thier stallion got the best of them.
IMO, the responsible thing to do would've been to get the stallion gelded, if they aren't planning on breeding...

Just because these people aren't experienced enough to handle thier stallion, doesn't make them bad people.
You're right, it doesn't make them bad people. If they're not experienced enough to handle a stallion, however, I don't think they should have one.

But, I digress. I'll get off my soapbox now. It was truly a funny story, debates about overpopulation aside!!

Oh, soapbox away. I don't mind. And I agree with all of those points. Wholeheartedly, actually.

But there isn't much you can do for folks who apparently know it all. We all know those. I see vents on them all the time in the GD. Heh. I'm going to start posting on those to just laugh at them when they eat thier ignorance.

Just so long as that stud stays on his side of the fence, we are going to stay out of things. Thank goodness for our Dad did them they'd have all thier mares in foal by April. Not much else we can do.
