A few weeks ago I saw that you had posted on here that you needed to free lease your Thoroughbred gelding. I even asked around to see if I could find someone because you sounded so put out. Then you put your mare up for lease.
Then you get another horse...and now your horse may be having a foal????
I'm a little confused.
Yes, I need to get rid of my TB gelding, and the sooner the better. My parents were paying for his board, and I got this mare and was paying for her myself, then my parents suddenly said that they were either going to pay for my board at school or my TB, not both, which is why I need to get rid of him so quickly. I can not afford two horses. I did not know that this mare had been exposed to a stud until I tracked down the last owners on her papers and they told me the whole story. The man that I picked her up from did not even mention that the paint out in the pasture with her was a stallion. I did not willingly breed her. I am rather upset about this but trying to make the best of it.
The appy was given to me by a friend who needed to get rid of her fast or was going to take her to a local auction known for having most of the horses go to the meat buyers. I could not let that happen and have a clean conscience, I know you can't save them all but she was just too nice to let her go that route. Thankfully she has all ready found a new home and will be leaving this weekend.
So there is my long sob story, back to the matter at hand...
Nrhareiner - yes, I hope the foal does too. I would not have picked Malibu as being breeding quality, even though she has Streakin Six and Little Dick Priest as her grand-sires.
I wish I could find pictures of her sire and dam, I want to know where they went so off track! I don't think Malibu is downright fugly, but everything about her is so long!
