Unfortunately at this point, you are just one more empathetic victim to someone elses pure stupidity. Regardless of how thin the animals may seem, unless they're being visibly starved or abused, animal control doesn't have the right to do diddly squat.

I would do my best to talk to her, and if that doesn't work, distance yourself from the situation.

And for the record, Haflingers, like almost EVERY breed, contains a hearty portion of Arabian blood from centuries ago when they began developing the breed. If she's trying to show off how smart she is, she's failing miserably as it's a pretty lame argument as to why to breed your mare to one - they obviously look nothing like Arabs at this point for a reason.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

If that were my friend, my response would depend on if I wanted to remain friends with that person..... I would totally express my concerns, give examples of how many young horses go to slaughter because of no owners, and then be prepared to lose the friend..... put some ideas in her head that a horse lives into their 20s or longer and that someone has to be picked to rightfully care for them. If she just needs a fly in her ear to tell her no, then say no everytime she asks or brings it up..... no, I don't think the baby will be cute because (and come up with reasons) or no I don't think you should breed her because (and come upwith reasons the mare is not perfect) or give the economy as a reason.... take her online and show her how many cheap horses are for sale or free..........

Sadly enough, I don't care so much if we stay friends or not. It's just that I'd like to do what I can for her critters. I mean, the one dog that stays in the crate all the time is a pit bull, something terrier, I don't really know. He looks like Chance in Homeward Bound. But he is a SWEET dog, just loves to be petted, loves attention. He's intact, and is apparently aggressive with other dogs, which is why she keeps him in the crate. But seriously, he only comes out to go pee. Ever. I would LOVE to take him, get him fixed, and work with him, because I think he'd be a great dog.

Sorry that's a bit off topic. What I want is to stop her from breeding her horse.
