No one was home to stop it. I will have her checked for diseases and twins. I will have the stallion checked also. I will keep everyone updated if she is pregnant and ask questions and get advice. I have 2 homes for the baby to go to if money is to tight.
My comment wasn't directed necessarily at you, Serenity, but to anyone who breeds without knowing anything about the horses they breed.
I think I'm missing something here though. I think you said in a previous post that you bred another grade mare you own, to this same stallion. What happened to that foal? I was also under the impression that the stallion belonged to a neighbour, but now I'm thinking you also own the stallion, correct? This since you said you would now geld the stallion. That seems to be a responsible thing to do I think. I'm sure he will be a happier boy. Just remember, after gelding, to still keep him away from your mares for six weeks.
What do you do with your horses, other than breed? I see you are in California where we have tons of great shows in all areas and almost every weekend. And of course, great trails and mountainous areas to ride.
