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.
