Who cares? The people with money that buy horses and feed them. The people that don't care are the ones that neglect them. No, not all grade horses are neglected & yes, lots of registered horses end up as rescues as well, but that's not the rule. As a conscientious horse owner, I would never, ever condone a willy nilly breeding unless it was too late. I couldn't do it. But again, it's your horse, your choice, good luck.

I'm sorry if I'm being rude but I've grown up with all sorts of mixed breed horses and they've all done really well and have always had healthy foals.

If your just going to be rude and judge me and my horse for an accidental breeding then please don't post. I'm keeping the foal. Not selling it. So that means it is going to be taken care of and it is not going to be neglected. Stop judging others for there mixed breed horses, it's dumb and rude. I know tons of people who love the horse for them and not for there breed. Sorry not everyone is picky about there fancy purebreds/registered horses.

There's nothing wrong with my horse having a mixed breed foal. I don't kill foals just for not being purebred, it's wrong.

Registered, pure or not. Have you considered that having a baby could kill your mare, what will you do when (if) that happens? How old is your mare? You don't know that she's had babies before, so it could be incredibly difficult for her and the fact that she was starved before you bought her does increase her risk.

How did your mare get in with the stallion anyway? Maybe you need to look at your fencing...

We're not judging you because you're breeding a grade horse. Yes, that is a bad decision with the current state of the horse world with over population. The biggest concern we have is that you know nothing of your mare's history. Has she or the stallion been tested for frame, HYPP, HERDA, or any other genetic disease? Have you heard of OLWS, HYPP, or HERDA? They are all genetic disease that can kill a foal. THAT is what we are most concerned about with your mare. If she is bred, and she and/or the stallion are a carrier for any of those diseases, there's nothing you can do to prevent the foal from getting it.

there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

I know it can kill her, she's 5 and she got through the fence. I'll just get rid of the baby to satisfy you guys because obviously me and my horse are the two dumbest things on earth. Sorry she's not purebred and sorry no one was home to stop her. Can't help the fact it happened. I'm going to bed so I'll finish this tomorrow. Sorry for being rude I just feel like my horse isn't good enough to breed and it's not my fault she got in with the stallion. I just hope now she's not pregnant that way no ones freaked out about a neglected mixed breed foal.

You had to check off the box stating you understand that breeding is a very touchy subject and you will get mixed responces and reactions to any thread in breeding. Sorry its the way it goes. I do not condone any reckless/oops breedings when they can be avoided or caught early enough

You sound young. You have lots to learn. But what would happen if something happened to you and the horses need rehomed? Do you not want it to have the best possible chance for a good home and reduce chances of ending up in the kill pen?
