" So... has anyone on here ever had a planned breeding 'go wrong' so to say?"

I believe that was the OP question. So to answer your question, no, however we brought 3 horses home and by winter it looks like we will have 5. We knew one was pregnant and had a beautiful chestnut colt May 2. The other mare already had a 6 month old filly but we were told she was not bred back, well if I didn't know better I would say she was due to drop any day!! She is huge.

Good luck with your mare, I hope you get your filly and I'm glad there are people that understand accidents happen and it's not the end of the world.

I really need to commit myself for evaluation for asking this question.
There is a good possibilty that the breeding was not successful.
Which stallion is he going to use to tease the mare now?
OP you are the one who implied that the breeding was a "mishap". Either you do not know the meaning of the word or you knew fully well that the title would get some attention. Negative or positive attention .
There are better ways to make friends on this forum. Instead of posting threads that seem to invite criticism may I suggest simply asking questions. In a less dramatic way.
Is the mare now going to the proper stallion or the new wonder boy?
You do intend to have him cover her more than once. Right? I hope also that the stallion and mare are properly cleansed before and after.
Your experienced breeder of 50 didnt forget that either. It is important to prevent infections in both stallion and mares. That's where the attention needs to be centered on. Shalom

A person can be a "breeder" for as long as they want and still be a moron about it. I would be livid if this happened to me.

Quite honestly I'd be embarrassed to admit that I let that happen.....there's no chance I'd invest any money in a live breeding for a mare from my neighbors stud and not be there and have my mare prepared/cleaned and watch to make sure everything is in order.

I'm not sure if you stated you were there or not OP, but it sounds to me like poor planning, poor forethought and could've ended up being a very dangerous situation teasing with a breeding stallion, even if he was 'retired' from breeding....retired from breeding means gelded to me.

You youngsters just wait til you get older and start forgetting things, like putting your pants on over your underwear instead of underneath them! She said the breeder is old and forgets things, but he still knows how to handle horses, he was doing things by rote, which we all do sometimes. If you are dealing with an elderly gentleman that isn't as sharp as he once was, mistakes will happen, but the OP likes the stallion that bred her mare, she said it was a better choice.

How rude.

If the gentlemen is too old and forgetful to do the job correctly and safely then surely it leads on to us questioning should he be performing the job at all? Stricks me as backyard breeding tbh.

Amen to waresbear! The OP is not upset, so why should all you be? Crap happens. If it were a stud she DID NOT like then it would be a big deal, but she DOES like the stud, so no worries :) hopefully mare and stallion were cleaned beforehand, but that being said I do know people who breed without cleaning first and haven't had problems thus far

^^ then why did the OP bother posting at all? Especially such a flamatory post likily to gain responses or why did she go into such personal detail about the situation?

To raise your blood pressure. And just because the breeder is older and does things by rote, doesn't mean he does them dangerously, although I don't know for sure, just commenting on what was posted. You just wait Missy until you get older, you will be changing your tune.

My take on it. From the sounds of it this elderly gentleman is retired from breeding, but was willing to 'help out a friend' and breed to her mare. Yes a huge mistake was made!! And maybe this is why he retired from breeding in the first place, my guess is it was such a routine thing for him, from previous years that when he teased the mare and saw she was in he absentmindedly then bred her with the horse he happened to be holding. I don't know his normal procedure, but I'm guessing his clients generally didn't live next door, and normally he may have been able to tease with the breeding stallion. In this case, from my understanding, he used this teaser stallion because he was easier to handle. Now as long as op is happy, I'm happy for her! I hope she gets what she wants!

As for me, depends I guess, if it happened as I think here, a favor to me from a forgetful elderly neighbor doing me a favor, I would be disappointed, as I aborted and tried again. If it happened with a professional breeder that I paid for the service, I would be hopping mad!!

I don't think this thread was started with any malicious intent, when I read the title, I was thinking it sounded like a thread to show what could go wrong (w/ actual experiences) when breeding, a good learning thread for new breeders or someone considering it for the first time! Give them something to think about! Although the first story didn't quit go along with that. I still think it would be interesting to hear of others 'breeding gone wrong' stories.
