I have never, ever, put anyone down to make myself feel better. However, I do make my thoughts known - as do many on forums such as this. If I had been rude, I could most certainly, have expressed my feeling much more forcefully. Many in fact, would have.

As someone who has rescued dogs and horse for many years, it still amazes me, that some horse owners, still produce more than one 'oops' breeding.

A very few oops crossbreds, do find secure homes, but millions don't unfortunately. They often end up in (again) uninformed homes where they are bred and/or in the killer auctions.

I think/hope, the OP has learned the lesson of what happens when the uninformed/uneducated, get into horses or any other animal. I believe she has. The breeding of any animals, to put forth the next generation, is not something to be taken lightly. If all adhered to that, then our dreadful killer auctions would be few and far between. Certainly in this economy, we are finding some well bred horses, ending up in auctions. However, the majority were not bred carefully and with much thought, placed in very carefully monitored homes and where the breeder contracted that any time the horse was unwanted, he/she would take back the animal.

There is responsible and irresponsible breeding. Only our conscience decides which one we wish to be.

Welcome to the forum, OP. It doesn't matter what you call her, I'd just call her adorable. I'm glad you have everyone gelded now, and she is a beautiful filly.

Technically she is a grade, but you would not be wrong to call her a Draft cross if she has draft in her. I believe more non-horsey people would understand that term better. It would depend who you are talking to.

It seems like the OP understands the point since she has had the stallions gelded. The horse would indeed be grade or draft crosses, whichever you prefer.

Aside from the neck, she's really quite cute.

Just as many registered horses end up being slaughtered as 'grade' horses. Interesting and true fact. They don't get to the kill pen and someone shouts out..."STOP THE PRESSES! This horse has PAPERS!"

While I am not all about breeding for fun or to see what happens...I think the OP did right by her horse.

I have heard of many race horses if they don't win so many races the get sold to slaughter it is so sad :,( and if I could I whould save them all.
Makes me tear up just thinking bout all those poor horses not being loved :,(

While it is undesirable to have an unwanted baby, it is certainly undesirable to have two unwanted and unplanned babies. However I am glad you have since gelded and corrected the situation.

I would be upset if you were saying 'help I cannot afford my 2 babies' but it sounds like you plan to keep them.

Every horse I have ever owned has been a grade horse (no papers, mixed breed) or an OTTB with nothing significant that makes them worth much of anything. I believe that there are more horse owners like me that those with papers on every horse.

I would not listen to the meat man argument unless you cannot afford to keep your horses, I have seen beautiful horses with papers go to the meat man. I don't have the money from more than one horse, but I like to still look - there are many many nice horses going every week.
It would have been nice if you gelded after the first whoops but I am glad you did so after the second.

Never say never, Vikki. I gather your 19, from your posts.
Not going off to college? Full time job? Family in the future?
ANYTHING can happen, even to us with the best of intentions.
Just sayin'.
