Is this "Camilla" dame insane? Never mind the fact she is putting a stud in a pasture with a bunch of horses, she was going to put him in with a strange mare! Mares can kick the crap outta stallions if they are not fully in heat & he gets fresh. The land owner has some decent brains in his head. Any 1/2 way knowledgable horse person isn't going to turn out a stud in any old pasture w/o making sure it's studproofed. I sure the heck wouldn't. Who would be liable if a kid rode her mare who happened to be in heat past the field & the stud broke thru the fence? I throw out this scenario because it happened to a friend of mine when we were kids. She was riding her pony mare down the road, a stallion jumped the fence & mounted the mare & during this commotion, my friend was knocked to the ground & stepped on & broke her arm. Her parents sued the stallion owner & the property owner. After the lawsuit, the municipality in which this took place made a new bylaw about stallions & 6 ft high fences. By the way, the little mare didn't have a foal, that would've been another lawsuit.
