This thread has already gone through it and come out the other side - twice as far as I can tell, as everyone seemed to arrive at an understanding only to have another member choose to harp on a tangential sentence and arguably antagonize the OP for it.

There is no need for it to happen again with an insinuation that the OP is lying or leaving out key details. TBlue98 has obviously put significant effort into describing the details of this situation despite having no obligation to. If you have a specific question, by all means, ask it, but please keep nonconstructive comments like this to yourself.

You may not care if new members become non-members because of unrelenting, unwelcoming posts, but many of us here do.

So I had to get her papers up to date and prove she was in fact alive in order to help them register the foal. Otherwise, they would have never been interested in her papers, never was from the beginning of the sale. After all, we were under the impression she would never take or could ever become pregnant, not to mention she was in her golden years. They simply wanted a pasture pet. Something they could put their kids on to ride around the farm.
Not sure what you meant as to something seems off, but hope that answers your question.
AQHA would not list her as deceased at the age of 19 or, before.

Many of my broodmares were older than that.

Kay's Joy had her last foal at 24. That was the superior performance horse
She Is No Joy.

Some think the old gals are the best producers.

Some place there was a mistake.

Aqha marks horses deceased 25 unless you send proof of life with pictures every year.

25 is fair.

I think Kay lived until 27 but, I retired her after her last foal.

Then she wasn't getting around well, so I put her down.

Ok, I guess I need to go find my old, dead mare's registration papers to see exactly how old she was at that time. But in the whole scheme of it, is it really that important and relevant to this forum?? She was OLD! When we went to register the foal, AQHA had her as inactive or whatever you want to call it, we took it as though they had her as deceased because of no activity with her papers. I am not lying, I have nothing to hide. I simply posted on this forum because I wanted to know if others have had an older mare unexpectantly get pregnant by a young stud colt and how they would handle it. Apparently I'm the only idiot that this has ever happened to. But you know what; to heck with what any of you strangers think about me. I'm a good person, I LOVE my animals and I know I do my best for them.
This is getting ridiculous.

I just saw no need for incorrect information about AQHA to be posted.

Have I had any mare get in foal "accidently"????...no.

Give me a break. Exactly how many points do we want to pick appart in this thread? As far as I can tell the original question has more than been answered, so why don't we all find another thread to pick on?

Ripper, please .....


TB .. you really don't have to defend yourself to anyone. The administrator is right. This insinuation that you are somehow not being truthful is non-constructive and unwelcoming.

Thanks for sharing your story and please stay around and post. There are many many many friendly people on here that are fun to get to know.

Welcome.

I feel sorry for the OP. Some people need to get off their high horse. Hope they stick around after being insinuated that they are an idiot and a moron. We all learn and none of us are born with the answers. That's why we come here. I thought the questions they asked were legit and after reading the entire story, more legit.

I hope you get the foal when it becomes a yearling. I'm sure in hindsight you would have changed many things ---------------as all of us would.

Foal
I looked her up for the sake of argument and mainly because I didn't do my homework on an irrelevant issue such as the "exact" age of my old mare when I began this forum. Didn't think it really mattered because the fact is, she was an old mare that we could never get pregnant. She is dead now. The point of her exact age had nothing to do with the question or reason for my post.
But go ahead, rip me a new one and chew this subject to bits within this forum against me.
But because you must know and mainly to prove I'm no lier, she was a 1984 mare. Yes, far cry from 20, I know, what a moron right. Shoot me for not taking the time to look that up when I began typing. I'm not as perfect as some.
If you need her registration number as proof, I can provide that for you too. Along with many pictures of my beloved horse. But honestly I could care less at this point. I'm thinking if I would have looked it up to get her actual age from the start, I more than likely would have been discriminated for the fact I had such an old mare and accidently let my young stud colt get in with her. After all, that seems to only happen to people like me. I never claimed to be some professional horse breeder from the beginning.

My apologies. I'm a little upset at this point and want to be done with this forum. My question has been answered, the constructive posts were greatly apprecaited. My mare is gone, the foal is gone. But at least I have one good horse, this foals daddy. I've learned many lessons by this forum.
Thank You.
