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.
    The age did not matter.

    I just did not see a reason for incorrect information about AQHA.

    I learned sometime too.

    I was not sure of the cut off age with AQHA age, I just knew I had mares older than 19.

    Blue, you have nothing to prove to any of us. After all, we are all just people sitting on the other end of a computer keyboard.

    That should have read, I learned something too.

    I just noticed it.

    We don't oblige requests to close or remove threads, but in this case TBlue98's question has been asked and answered more than sufficiently, and any additional discussion about AQHA cut off ages can take place in a new thread about just that.

    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.
    Sorry, Ripper, but how you could reply to this post of TBlue98's post the way you did, where she is clearly justifiably upset about the way she's been made to feel by certain members in this thread, is appalling.

    Generally speaking, if people don't treat their fellow horse keepers in a community decently, whether an online community or in "real life", and have some regard for the way their words make others feel, there eventually won't be a community. The Horse Forum Team will not allow this to happen here. This is not a matter of making it a "rainbows and butterflies" community, but of keeping it a place worth visiting in the first place.

    TBlue98, I am truly sorry for your experience in this thread. I sincerely hope that you give the community a chance, because if you do I'm sure you'll find that the great majority of members here are friendly, warm, welcoming people who are interested in helping others and sharing their love for horses. Please know that the Horse Forum Team is standing by, and while every member here gets a chance, those that prove toxic to the environment are ultimately shown the door.
