    If you get messages like that forward them to a moderator and let them deal with it.

    You can't delete posts on this forum, only the moderators and admin can.

    Blue turned two in the fall of 2012. He could have very well bred the mares this summer/fall. Which means you would have more foals on the ground next year.

    Most colts can and will breed shortly after turning one.

    The farmer just had them vet checked again for my concern of them being larger (fatter) 32 days ago and were all neg but Rosie..no he has bred no one and in spring we have our pasture divided already for him to be put in with the other 3 boys and mares on other side with 4 strands of hotwire and horse fencing....so have and will take precautions as I have been since he was a yr and vet checked him!

    Agreed with ND forward to a moderator those messages. :( personally I don't think your a back yard breeder and if the horses were to become pregnant honestly its not going to end all horsey kind. Granted I'm very against breeding horses willy nilly but I've heard of much worse problems than this. And we don't even know if these mares are bred and its not like she is out soliciting her grade stud for profit cause he is pretty (which people do). Want hear a bad horse knowledge breeding story I'll give you one.
    The lady that I'm buying a half arabian Pinto filly from was telling me that this guy called her wanting to buy the filly because his two year old grade stud is getting hard to handle and he thinks that a filly will calm him down.... Can you believe that??? When she asked him what breed his colt was he said black with a white stripe. He said with her filly he's going to make all kinds of money breeding this stud colt. Now that's a backyard breeder!!! I like what she told him though, she said no I will not sell you my filly and geld that stud colt and hire a trainer. Good response in my book.

    I'm glad you have the pasture set up to separate the mares from the colts. Having two young studs together where they share a fence line with mares can be a problem. They can injure each other with play fighting or with real fighting. They can also injure themselves on the fence trying to get to a mare that they can smell/touch. You might want to consider adding an 8-10ft buffer area between them to reduce some of these issues. Nobody wants to spend money on the vet unnecessarily. Can I ask which clinic you are using? There are certain vets in our area that are better at equine reproduction than others. Plus doing an ultrasound is almost always more accurate than a manual palpation.

    The other thing I thought of was that you could maybe call/email UC Davis or Animal Genetics to get a re-printed copy of your boy's genetic test results. I bet they would even email it to you. I have found those companies have been really great to work with!

    Wow people are seriously PMing you and putting you down. WOW the gull of some.
    I am sorry Panda

    Its funny when some one starts a thread about a horse they think it being mistreated everyone is posting saying it is none of there business to just leave it alone. But they will sure get into the business of telling some one what the need to do with there horse. *shaking my head* sorry again for the rude people here
