Re: APHA Stallion TWO EYED COMANCHE
& the concept of so-called "Revenge Breeding"
I was informed of posts carrying the title or inclusive of the term: "Revenge Breeding" and so listing Comanche and his ownership as perpetrators of this mysterious event.
What makes it all the more interesting is that the Stallion in question, Two Eyed Comanche, was sold during 2010 as listed on the website. Never updated the site to place the word "SOLD" on the page. I do know where he is at present, but not of what activities he engages in on a daily basis.
I do know the ranch is reputable and also carries a "Horse Rescue" certification (although it is rarely used as such any longer). It is unlikely any such activities would be condoned by this upscale ranch ownership.
To my knowledge the ranch in question has nothing other than a longstanding superlative reputation.
I have never heard of this so-called "Revenge-Breeding". How might the owner of a high dollar foundation stud exact revenge by creating a foal of considerable value which then would belong to the owner(s) of the mare(s)?
As well, breeding indiscriminately to grade mares (not APHA or AQHA registered) jeopardizes the value of the bloodline and the stud, while simultaneously increasing the value of the stock (herd) owned by the owner of the mare. Also, and probably most important is the notion that how would the stallion owner know the precise days of the estrus cycle (heat) of any given mare?? Plus: the breeding requires that both horses be placed together either with or without handlers... since this also carries risk of injury to both the mare and the stallion... then how does the stallion owner prevent this? Add to all this the fact that this particular stallion weighs in at over 1,200 pounds at any given time and is wide chested and massively powerful.
Seems as though the entire ranch would need be part of such a collaborative effort at that may be easily deemed criminally illegal in most states, and certainly be actionable in a civil court of law. Breeding is a difficult project if it to be successful. Mares are not readily available whenever the stallion (or it's owner) decides to have a go at it.... and many mares are rather difficult to breed successfully to any stallion due to inherent problematic issues with the mare. And finally: any stallion bred to any mare without proper pre-breeding veterinarian testing procedures is at risk of internal jeopardy and death. The owner of the stallion would not be likely found placing his prime stud at such risk. The entire concept seems ridiculous.
