I would suggest putting an electric fence around the mare and also the stallion. Alot of stallions do not get along with other colts or gelding and will fight to the death. As for the mare, here you cannot put someone elses horse down unless you have pemission. Even if the horse is severly injured, a vet will not put it down unless they have permission from the owner.
I personaly would not breed that mare, because what she does to people, she will pass on to her foal and the foal will most likely do the same.

I would consider surrending the horse to some kind of spca and let them deal with her. I would stay far away from that mare, due to potential law suits...

^^i think the OP said the mare already killed 2 of her foals so breeding probably isnt factored in any least I hope not.

I dunno about this mare but I can say that my mare, and my 2 hiefers def. Got a little crazy when they were preggo because of all the extra hormones raging lol. So I can only imagine what went on wtih that mare.

If stallions don't fight if there are no mares around and the other two stallions are kept together and get on very well but they are kept in a separate place away from the yard and only brought down for breeding or riding perposes and never together

I would like to apologise to my friend as this is her account and she might get in trouble. I live in Manchester and work for a breeder there so please don't punish my friend

This mare may have gotten away with intimidating people, long before she arrived at this place. Someone with a lot of experience needs to dish it back to her with as much zeal as this mare doles it out. She respects no one. I had a mare charge me and she got as hard a slap with a stout rope as I could muster on her neck. It was enough to turn her away. She tried again and got it again. That was the end of that issue.

Did I mis-read? No one has commented on the statement that because the one stallion fought with other stallions and gelding he was put in with the mares? Hello? How is this responsible?

Tack that on to the dangerous temperments in a couple of horses and the place sounds like it's only been luck that 1. No person has been severely injured, 2. No horse has been severely injured and 3. No lawsuit has been issued. I find it difficult to believe that there hasn't been an accidental breeding either.

While it's not the BO's fault that a horse may have an illness, it IS the BO's responsibility to keep all horses and people safe. It's not happening. Is there anyone in your family you can talk about this with? I don't think it would be wise for you to approach the BO.

I am questioning the breeders sanity....why in the heck would you want foals from a mare like this (assuming she isnt some fan-freaking tastic- poops rainbows, show horse)????

She may be a looker, and she may be popping out looker foals, but dang..a terrible personality is not something you want to continue on!

She should have learned from this. He got out again a few weeks later and attacked two 5 year old geldings who were very expensive show animals, one of them had to be put down because his injuries were so bad and the other one is badly scarred physically and mentally, he can't go near another horse he takes off as soon as he sees them.
This is an absolutely, over-the-top inexcusable way to manage a stable!! I don't blame you for being alarmed/concerned one bit, and am pleased that you came to the forum looking for some guidance. Do not feel guilty that you are concerned - This is NOT a safe place or situation. I would leave, (you don't owe an explanation, but could make excuse due to your age that you have a lot of homework, etc...) This stable owner will meet with a bad reputation all of her own (as if she hasn't already!) so don't feel guilty for caring. I would leave quietly, safely, and be glad you aren't the next to be injured. God Speed! You'll find somewhere better I'm quite certain :)
