I have 6 mares & practice birth control with them by keeping them away from Studs when breeding isnt desired.
The best birth control is to geld the colts.
It started out as a joke. A friend of mine might get to rent 5-10 acres dirt cheap, and we were talking about moving our horses out there. I have a mare, and he has a stud, so I told him to let me know when he knew if we would get it so I could get my horse on the pill if we did get it.
I did a google search, not expecting anything to come up, but I found out about PZP, and it seems like a good idea. I'm sure we'd be able to keep them seperated, although I wouldn't mind my mare having a foal, especially with his stud, but I wouldn't purposely try to breed them. Anyways, I was just wondering if I could actually get it or not.
