    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.
    And if that is the way that it has to end up, then so be it.


    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?

    OOOOOOOOOk guys maybe quite with the slinging match now? It's getting no where, is entirely off topic, if you want to insult/abuse/slander each other go for your lives, but do it elsewhere not on someone's post.


    To the OP, No I don't really agree with your way of going about this 'breeding' business, but I'm not going to shoot you down for it, I will simply give my opinion and leave it at that, just to give you something to mull over without having to dredge through 5 pages of 3 people trying to knock each other off their perch.

    There is not a great demand for miniatures/shetland's unless they are of superb quality and temperament. And even then, there is still far less demand for them than a riding horse. You CAN breed 'up' for height, but if she's a mini/shettie, you're not going to get something that anyone bigger than a 5 year old kid can ride.
    Unless your mare is of fantastic quality, and you pick a suitable stallion, not just any stallion that is cheap and willing to 'give it a shot', there is little point in breeding unless you intend to keep the foal for your own purposes. But even if you did want to breed just for yourself, it is MUCH cheaper and MUCH less stressful to simply go to an auction and purchase a foal, that will probably be of better quality than one you may breed. There are so many unwanted horses going to the doggers due to over breeding, even the quality horses are being dogged because of the lack of demand.
    My last words to you: Before you commit to breeding your mare, go onto google, and check out the number of horses being dogged or being sent off the auctions, and check on the reasons WHY there are so many going. It may just change your mind about breeding, save a pony's life rather than breed another one that may await the same fate.

    Anyway, I chose to involve myself becaus ebeing a debate student I am naturally drawn to confrontation whether I am in the fault or not. However, this topic I have a lot to say about so I am even more drawn to it. It amuses me, in all honesty. Just because its summer doesn't mean I can't have some practice turning around the argument, even if it doesn't always work for me.

    And we never said you don't have the right to post a comment. But we also have the rights to post a response to your response.

    She's not going to learn anything by breeding her mare for S&G's anyway, so I fail to see your point.

    In defense, almost the ENTIRE reason Tennessee even started posting here was to inform us we needed to stop "hating" on the OP for not saying "OMFGZ< DO ITZ". And while I can appreciate you had a valid argument, you got caught up in the mud slinging me and Tennessee engaged in.

    I can appreciate having a good debate with YOU. However, children like Tennessee tend to muddle it up with their attempts at being intelligent and having zero idea what they're talking about it.

    And with that I will digress from this now boring topic and hope to debate with you in another topic where we can actually DEBATE and not get caught up in melodrama.

    Have a nice evening.

    That's nice. Just a little fyi....It's not just the internet. I qualified for nationals this year. Breezed right over the bigger schools. You know, I may not be the most mature young woman in the world but at least I'm not making fun of those younger than me behind a computer screen. I surely hope you don't treat kids like this in real life. I'm sure Macarbe already covered the whole "I treat people the way they treat me" argument, but personally, I don't find it very valid. I highly doubt you are both this unpleasant when there isn't a screen between us.


    EDIT - Goodness, it seems we keep posting at the same time. I appreciate that comment Macarbe, but unfortunately I don't agree with your side of the argument. I will agree many points in this argument are invalid, I still don't think calling a teenager stupid is going to help.....considered teenagers are a rebellious sort and that would probably just irritate the argument more. I know from experience

    ROFLMFAO.

    You'd be amazed. A friend at work told me the reason I shouldn't be allowed to be a resource officer is because I scare people.

    You may deem it unpleasant... but I have a low bullshirt tolerance, whether there are keys or vocal chords to be used.

    What was I trying to help? If you're going to act stupid, I will call you stupid. End of story. Regardless of age. You want to fight with the grown ups, learn how to act like one.

    Oh, this is normal teenage stuff. Every single adult deals with it.....consider it a test of your patience. I know I can argue with the big girls, even if I'm not always on the winning side.
