This is what made us think you felt entitled to a stud fee. You're not. It's your fault the mare was sold/given away in foal, no matter at which angle we try to see the situation.

Glad you see it the same way, since if I were the mare owner I'd be highly peeved that I had to pay extra for a foal I never expected.

if you really want the foal, explain the situation and maybe they would sell him to you. Otherwise, yes you handled it well. Its unfortunate for you that she finally had the foal you wanted, accidentally, after you sold her. Unfortunate for the new owners because of the extra expense, hassel and potential vet bills that could have resulted. If you sold her to someone else farther away, you likely never would have even known.

acually in many states if they owned the mare at time of breeding even if it was an accident they WOULD owe the stud fee OR the foal back.

I understand and that was wrong of me to say. I'm glad I have never brought it up. Just a little bitter because I know they will never do anything with it and that is what is upsetting to me the most. That's what you get when you have dealings with friends. But, it seems I was lucky that it was a dealing with a friend! Otherwise, they could have asked me for a lot more!
Thanks all.

Really? So all these people with foals on this forum who got mares that they didnt know were bred could possibly have to give their horses' babies BACK to the morons who sold a bred mare in the first place? What states are these??

They didn't own the mare at the time of breeding Ghost wind, the OP sold them the mare long after she was bred by their then stud colt. They turned a stud out loose with the mare before they gelded him because they could never get the mare in foal, she sold to friends, the mare ended up pregnant..
OP, you are not entitled to a stud fee, the foal or even training the foal. The foal and mare is theirs not yours. Plus, it kinda sounds a bit to me like maybe, just maybe, you "practically" gave them a 19+year old mare, and you are a tad bit jealous because they got the foal they wanted.

That's what some fellow horse owners are telling me, hence my desire to post my situation and ask many others.
Its just a bad deal and like one person said, it was my fault and I just need to let it go.

I can understand that completely. To finally see a foal from your beloved older mare, but not have ownership of it has to be frustrating.

They're in love with a cute little baby horse right now. Those feelings may do a complete 180 when they're faced with an ill-mannered, untrained yearling, so I wouldn't give up hope just yet.

Doesn't matter if they are friends or not, you sold the mare, they owe you nothing. I would get over the "bitterness" you feel. I don't understand why you said" that's what you get when you have dealings with friends".. What in the world did the friends do that you would make that statement? YOU sold them a pregnant mare they did not know that, nor did you.
Get over your hurt feelings and bitterness. They owe you nothing

Ok, how do I delete my post? My question has been answered and it seems this idiot/moron did the right thing and is very lucky to have a decent friend. I've tried to be polite but now I feel I should just delete this post all together.
