Has she seen a vet at all? Do you have a safer place away from the stud? I've known of studs to reach over a fence to get at a foal. Plus in some of the pictures you've got barbed wire and that's not a safe situation for a foal.

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.

Yes she has. She's not near the stud now :) We have four pastures, so they are separated by an entire pasture now. We do have barbed wire at certain parts, but the foal will not be near all that!

EquineBovine-- Thank you! :) Here's a pic of the stallion, trying to come inside! Lol :)

Army Wife-- She is not bagged up yet, but I checked her today and it looks like she might just be starting to! Her utters are warm and I thought I saw some wax (it was a crusty yellow substance).

I would also like to say THANK YOU to everyone who has replied to this. You guys are pretty much the only few who haven't said anything rude about me or my horses on here. I really appreciate that, a lot. :)

Because I really do wish the baby well, but I can't think of anything polite to say about breeding a rescue mare, of no particular merit apart from a pretty color, to a stud who is much the same without the abusive background.

So I will not add anything else, just I wish the baby, and the mare all the best.

What are the other options involved in breeding an unproven grade rescue mare with a mild roach back, and an unproven stud?

Nor did I, that is your assumption, I just said that the mare was a pretty color, which she is, and the stud is also colorful, that is fact.

Certainly nothing was said by the OP about any registrations, accomplishments of either the mare or stud, so my question would be the same-as well as again, OP-has the mare had her appropriate shots, seen the vet, etc? Or are you pretty much just crossing your fingers and hoping for the best?

It will be interesting to see what the foal looks like for sure-Hopefully it will get the best attributes of both mare and stud and will be healthy.
