OK. There is truth in that. Florida is the location. Perhaps there is more to this than meets the eye? While I do not think Florida is mentioned at his webpages or in facebook... it may be in his stud listings at various sites nationally.... where anyone could find them. Mayhap I should do a little checking on my old stud...
Or notify the ranch in question. What name did the poster use? Any specifics in the thread such as names of people or other horses?
Well, there is truth in that, then. The location is Florida. Was a ranch name mentioned or personal names? Other horses? The poster's name was? Mayhap I should contact the ranch.... or go check on my old stud.
Yep. The ranch is a full board facility. Hmmm... the last known owner (last known by me) was a young woman rider... who posted a video of Comanche "jumping" a small ring jump (couple of feet) and was quite proud. I'd not the heart to tell her that he jumps easily over a small sports car or a 4-5 foot fence get to his girlfriends pastures and off of small cliffs in Maine into the sea. Or that he is really as wild and crazy as he really is. A true bulletproof nutcase of a stallion who also loves going through the drive-through at Burger King for hand fed fries from the gals..... fights regularly (and always wins) with any stallion or gelding that offends him other stallions. Been in two such fights on open ground in the saddle... he's also a timber runner...races hell bent for election through deep forests dead-falls...knocking down small tress in the way.... carrying back out huge broken limbs to the pasture for an assist getting them off his back and neck...and it's best to ride with a full-solid trapadero rig almost always. This hoss broke the side of a small barn down...not just kicked out the stall or a few boards...but dislodged the entire wall. His nickname given him by the locals in Georgia is "Bulldozer". A true wild cowboy's hoss in every respect. But I've always thought it best to back away entirely from any stallion once a new owner steps in. But it would be still be quite the stretch of imagination as to the actual logistics of such revenge breeding. It seems to carry human connotation. Yikes.... no shrink am I... just an old hossman.... who talks softly to his hosses.
Well, I had read the thread and what struck me as rather odd if this indeed had any truth to it, was the liability to the stud owner. I am under the impression if your stallion gets out and breeds a mare without the owner's consent, the stallion owner is responsible for all vet bills and pays for the mare to be breed again to stallion of the mare owner's choosing as well as any punitive damages. Why would any boarding facility or stallion owner open themselves up to that? To give the poster of that thread the benefit of the doubt, she said it what was "her friend" told her that happened, she said she had not boarded there nor ever seen the stallion. She also said another boarder who left the barn also turned up with a mysteriously pregnant mare. Of course, all of this could be easily proved or disproved with DNA tests.
And one thing for sure....old Comanche would never engage the favors of any mare for revenge.... all pleasure for him... and he's quite respectful of the gals. Gotta give credit where credit is due. One of my better hosses he was. And a real fireball to ride.
