I don't think the OP did say so or not.

IF the is in foal, I would definitely abort this foal, there are enough homeless grades out there that end up in kill pens.

I personally doubt the mare is in foal (if he was only with her two weeks after gelding) Just because it is possible dose not mean it's likely. And what is with advising someone to horsey abortions? That's just crazy to me. It's not your horse or foal. I really don't think any of you have the right to push someone in that direction, much less make it sound like it's the only responsible thing to do. How ridiculous is it to say "kill it now, because there is a chance it might be killed later". Just weird to me.

Most people are not trying to push her, they are stating their opinions. They are thinking future wise for the foal and mare. No one here said that they were right about her being pregnant just because she was with the recently gelded stallion. Many people breed their mare's thinking that they will give the foal a forever home, half the time this is not likely.Foals take a lot of time, patience, and money. I thought that once, I bred my mare and ended with a very stubborn colt. I ended up selling him, even though I told everyone I was going to keep him. I would say if the OP wants another horse, or a weanling to train go to an auction or a rescue center, you will find one. Save a life, don't bring one into the world.

My advice to the OP if they haven't, get the vet out, find if she is pregnant or not and think responisbly. Think of the future of the foal, mare, your finances. Be smart about it, there are many horses out there that would love a home, but unfortunatly those open homes are continually being stocked up by people breeding foals of their own.
