PaintsPwn, I have complete respect for her as well and I do get on with her fine normally, but frankly this topic is rubbing me the wrong way.

And Macarbe, seriously? You think I don't know about the economy? I'm certainly no expert, but I know about breeding horses and I know all about the expenses. The horses I have are in my name. I may be a teenager, but if the hors ehas my name on its papers I pay for everything. Tack, feed, stud fees, vet bills, farrier bills, and everything they need. I go to work every day and work my butt off to create the cash I need to pay for my horses. Yes, I take care of my Mom's horses and my Trainer's horses too but the ones I own I take care of. If I want a foal, Mom could care less. She gives me her advice, tells me what stud she likes best, and sends me on my way. The first foal I bred I was in seventh grade and I worked all summer to pay the $1000 dollar stud fee for my mare, and then the feeding expenses took every penny fro me but I did it because I wanted the baby. Then I paid the $700 for 30 days under saddle. Then I bought it tack, paid for another 80 days after that, brought it home and worked on perfecting the turnarounds my trainer had pretty much already covered. By the next year I paid to have the first sliders on and showed in a backyard reining show that I paid the entry fees for. I even paid for the gas to get down to the expo, because I couldn't drive then. Now I have a permit. granted I don't have a license but I take my truck that I pay to put gas in.

Honestly, I do respect your knowledge, but you shouldn't make false assumptions based on stereotypical teenagers.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead

I will NEVER understand the complete stupidity it takes to not understand that posting on a PUBLIC FORUM leaves you wide open to any and all comments.

Here's a novel idea - don't post if you can't handle the commentary.

OMFG I NEED TO WIN AN EMMY FOR BEING A GENIUS!


Hey, have an opinion about whatever you want. I'm not gonna sit here and tell you that you can't have one because that would be dumb. But, the OP asked what breed of pony would be suitable for her mare. She did not ask people to give her reasons why she should not breed her mare because the economy is in the ****s.

Who said I can't handle it? 0.o

And thanks for calling me stupid. :) I think my IQ proves otherwise, ma'am.

Being able to answer a few math problems hardly equals having actual common sense.

I think everyone has this mindset "It's just a pony! It'll be fine! They get fat off air alone!" There are already plenty of ponies. There are too many ponies to be frank, because they take up less space, meaning people can crowd more of them onto a small piece of property and breed the heck out of them to make $200 here and there, and less for 'pet quality'.

I took the actual test. 140, thank you very much.


And I have common sense. It's pretty darn hard to live on a farm your whole life and not have common sense. Once again you are making assumptions about me. Please stop stereotyping me.

I agree. There are WAYYYY too many horses. But, if the OP is more than willing to keep the foal no matter what and care for it properly, then I really don't see a problem.

Sorry, not quite.

My mindset is this girl wants one foal out of her mare. And we aren't making the decision whether or not she should breed the mare. I could flap my jaw all day about how she shouldn't do it but I bet she won't regard me much.

Seriously. She isn't running a "Horsey-mill" and breeding millions of low-dollar ponies in bad conditions. I think we've already adressed that.
