Understand you completely. I used to breed Arabians in Germany. And couldn't get myself to sell my foals,because I felt people weren't worthy of having one of my babies....not that I bred for super show horses, since we weren't part of the clique ....just family horses. My vet told me to repeat a breeding right away when he saw the filly at her first check-up and looked at me crazy when I said I wanted to see her grown up first and then decide if I'd do it again. It was a young stallion's first foal out of a proven mare. By the time she was old enough to be started we left Germany so I had to sell them anyway. Then the situation wasn't right, not enough space to raise a foal, and now being here, having all the space in the world, I just can't bring myself into it, seeing all these discarded, abandoned horses. I might take in some very needy ones and help them find good homes after they get back up to decent weight. I figure come fall I'll have my pasture well stocked...

With this drought, I have no doubt you will have some very well stocked pastures. Because of the drought, I have sold off all but 2 of my purebred mares and 1 of the partbreds. I gelded the Arab stallion, there's just no market right now and if I'm not breeding him, no need to keep a stallion. He's really quite happy out on pasture with his 'girls'. I have 3 foals, 2 pure and 1 part bred, they're all pretty nice and 2 are for sale to the right home, if that's to be found around here.

After dealing with drought and all the hassle of dispersing an entire herd (not mine, a friend's) last year, and having to deal with people and their assorted buying tactics, I got very tired of the jealous and negative who always have to say something negative about a horse, breed or discipline. I had pretty much decided to get out after last summer, so when this year went to Hades with a worsening of the drought, I just decided that was that. We decided we're not getting any younger and want to enjoy the horses we have and maybe breed one or 2 more, just for our enjoyment. If we decide Skippy isn't needed as a stallion, he'll get gelded and we'll just show and ride him like we're doing with the other usedtobeastallion boy.

I like Skipper W temper in all my horses, whether QH or not, and since Skippy is such a nice fellow, he's a keeper. To me, pretty is as pretty does and if the temper isn't sweet, it isn't all that pretty!

Agree! And I know exactly what you mean with the "negative". There are a lot of hawks out there who seem to have nothing better to do than sticking their nose in somebody else's business. I take it you get what I mean
