Misbred Mare

My daughter has a neighbor who recently bought a mare for her kids. When they got up this morning, the man across the streets wild Paso Fino stallion was in their pasture, breeding their mare. He bred her 3-4 times before they could get him off of her, as I said, he is wild. They're looking for answers as to how to tell signs of pregnancy, How early can they tell, and so forth. I told her that I believe there is something called a "misbred" shot, but the thing is, there is nothing to keep this from happening again, as the stallion is not properly secured, and does anyone know the legal ramifications to the owner of the stallion? The constable came out and witnessed everything, and said if it happens again, to call 911, since he is a wild stallion and very dangerous. We live in TX, and I thought there were laws regarding the size of enclosure a stallion could be kept in. I think it is a 6 ft. fence, or am I wrong? These people are really upset. The man did get a ticket, his story is that the mare trespassed on his property and lured his stallion over there, and helped him break out of his enclosure. Yes, as if!!

Yes, the mare can get a shot of Lute whether or not she is pregnant, get that done right away. As for the stallion, there should be restrictions for proper enclosures, check with the bylaws regarding livestock and the mare owners can make the stallion owner responsible for the vet costs associated with terminating the pregnancy. As a constable witnessed the stallion loose & on someone else's property, the question of who is responsible is not an issue.

I dont know that there are any laws in the State of Texas that require a certain type of fencing. Your city and county might have some restrictions but I dont think that the state has a law. I have seen stallions kept in all types of fencing
I would think that the vets and local animal control might report someone if they did but I have yet to hear of any cases.
Get the shot and if you cannot secure the stallion move the mare to a more secure place.
Also once that stallion is on your property call the local animal control and DO NOT ALLOW the stallion owner on your property to retrieve his stud unless escorted by a police officer. That way there is a report of the incident.
Remember if her enters your property without an invitation he is trespassing and THAT I know is against the law Statewide.
Oh and after the vet gives the shot send a copy of the bill to the stallion owner via certified mail demanding payment before you get the courts involved. Shalom

Thank everyone so much for your help. The constable did tell him that the enclosure he was in was way too small.

Check with your sheriff's office first, but here in OK, if that stallion was on my property raising hell and I shot him there would be no problem. I think TX is pretty much the same. SSS and be done with it.

Yes, that's how it happened. She somehow snuck out of her enclosure, sprung him out of his paddock and then they came back to her place to do the deed. Who does this guy think he's fooling?

But on a more serious note, you can get a shot of Lute from your vet. I think the official name is Lutalyse. In a sense, the guy was right about the mare "luring" over the stud in that he will be attracted to her every time she comes into heat which is going to be a problem. I think that it's safe to assume that now that he's gotten out once and figured out how to get into her pen, he'll be doing it again. From what I understand of Lute, it's kind of similar to the morning after pill in people, in that it will induce an estrous cycle. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong on this, but I've also read that it is used to make a mare come into heat for breeding... which will defeat its whole purpose if his pen is not secure enough to keep him in.

I should think you would have no problem enforcing payment for any vet fees incurred with this. Whether or not the stallion was "lured" as he says is of no consequence. If his fencing was sufficient, luring wouldn't even be possible. I'm sorry to hear your friends are in this situation and hopefully they can come to peaceful terms with the stallion's owner without having to take further legal action. Even the most well-trained stallions can be dangerous. For this guy to have one that is completely wild is like keeping a caged lion on his yard IMO and is a risk to the people and horses around him.

If this is that very skinny Belgian type mare you posted in the other thread, then absolutely get the shot asap. That mare is in no condtion to be ridden, let alone bred. I do wish people with horses would be more responsible. We see this all the time.

I was going to post this exactly - if this is the same horse you posted in another thread then Id be calling the vet ASAP to get the shot.

Horses lend us the wings we lack;
