Why was he teasing with a breeding stud?
I believe i've already answered that. :) Though let me add this, the stud he was teasing her with hasn't been an active breeding stud in several years now. My neighbor hasn't bred any horses in a few years now, as he's essentially quit breeding horses.

Mistakes happen to the best of us, happy that you're ok with the whole thing! Hope you get that filly you want!

Hi Mr Policeman, I *FORGOT* I wasn't supposed to rob a bank.....

If you can't remember to not breed a horse, whose to say you can remember to feed them or give them water? Your neighbor has no business owning ANY variety of animal if his memory is THAT bad!

This is not an *oops*, this is not an *accident*, this is sheer stupidity and irresponsibility with all parties involved!

I suppose you do get what you pay for?

Still scratching my head. I'd be livid.. But there are a few things I'd do differently than the OP.

Who are you to judge whether or not this was an accident or not?

I've already stated that it was. Neither of us intended on breeding my mare to the stud that she was bred by, it just slipped his mind that I had picked out a different stud and the deed was already in the process of being done when I managed to remind him.

I do not mind her being bred by the stud that bred her. Like I already said, Bear compliments my mare quite well, IMO, and I already own one horse by him, my seven year old gelding Dakota.

I don't see how it was irresponsible to tease my mare before taking to her his place and getting all his studs up in a ruckus if she wasn't in heat. We were trying to do things to minimize the stress on all the horses, his studs, my mare, his mares, and my gelding. It's unfortunate that it slipped his mind that I wasn't planning on breeding to Bear and it happened anyway, but mistakes do happen and I'm not blaming him or myself. It just happened. End of story. I'll deal with it and I'm not upset with it because I already know what Bear throws with my mare.

Which one out of that 'stud ' thread is he?

Britt I hope that You have a healthy foal, that you do indeed get a filly from this cross as you wish.
In the future even if it cost you money to do so please for your safety, find another breeder and take your mare there and leave her.
If the gentleman is too old to remember which stallion and allowed a teaser to breed your mare he might have trouble handling the stallion.
You have NO experience handling a stallion and they DO tend to get very excited when breeding.
Please take this as a gentle warning.
As a stallion owner IMO you the gentleman, and both horses were in a very risky situation.
I am certain you do not realize the risk involved.
Placing yourself or allowing anyone in such a dangerous situtation is nothing short of foolish.
You got lucky this time young lady. Next time maybe not . Shalom

It was an accident. The wrong stallion bred the wrong mare because of ... forgetfulness. (Though other words could be used there.)

Was the stallion washed prior to the breeding that wasn't supposed to take place? The mare? I would presume that because the stud was just supposed to be used for teasing, some steps in regards to hygiene were missed.

Nope, no way no how. I'd be beyond furious; but again, I would do things very differently myself.

TBH the 'experienced breeder' is either a) irresponsible and shouldnt be a 'stallion man' or b) hoodwinking you. As for the OP, I am sorry but why would you breed to a stallion because someone told you that you are more likely to have a filly? You admit yourself the accident is better for your horse?!

    06-13-2013, 06:12 PM
If you can't remember what stallion to tease with versus the actual breeding stallion for the service he needs to retire. That can be very dangerous. I don't care if the guy had 50 years experience because the proper handler would remember who is supposed to cover the mare. OP I do hope you get your filly, but I couldn't imagine what the situation would be if he used "the third" stallion when or if you weren't there.
