For someone with such a high IQ, you seem to forget the fact that things add up, and keep adding up. I'm sure the useless pony who was born 'just because she wanted a foal from her ky00t little mare' might make someone a nice steak somewhere in life.
My family takes in rescues all of the time. I've been to the auctions and sat right next to people who will openly admit that they are kill buyers. I've seen the nearly bombproof six year old registered mare go to a kill buyer for $150. I'm not oblivious to how bad the economy is. It's especially worse in the south where I live.
But us telling someone who seems pretty set on breeding their mare that they shouldn't do it is not going to help anyone. She'll probably read this, learn absolutely nothing, and then go on and breed her mare anyways. Instead of griping, we could be helping her find a stallion that compliments her mare in some ways.
But, speaking of the OP, she doesn't seem to be posting anymore?
