    There is nothing on this earth that keeps a stalion in his correct mindset than pasturing him with a witchy bred mare. This idea of isolating stalions is one of the main reasons so many are rank and hard to handle.

    It must be nice to be able to sit on top of your ego and look down on all the other people who are just trying to learn....I suppose that you have never learned anything the hard way?????

    By treating people like this..... you end up just driving them away from this forum and other places where they can have an opportunity to learn ..maybe they might have done some research etc beforehand but it does not change the fact that at least they are looking and trying to learn to avoid making further errors that could hurt themselves, their horses or others....are you helping by talking to them like that?

    I didnt say stallions should be isolated. Stallions shouldn't be housed with mares unless breeding is the perpouse. A bigger stallion with a mini mare is extreamly dangerous for the mare.

    So true! I was agreeing with the irresponsibility quote. I have no problems turning mine out with my mares once they are bred and the girls certainly do keep them in check. I wouldn't however turn them out with a mini.

    My problem here is that there seems to be a lack of research or knowlege. Stallion ownership isn't something that is for everyone who wants a pretty horsey and shouldn't be taken lightly. Mine that are absolute gentleman would probably even take advantage of someone not versed in handling stallions.

    Newowner did not say you were being rude. It is more the OP is trying to learn lets help her without chasing her away. I am not for keeping Stallions by themselves either. I think it is better to have a companion. The mini would not work obviously due to the size difference and difficulty with breeding.

    I agree, my issue was with others. But it seems that I have turned into the type of poster I abhor.

    I guess the bottom line is that as much info as I have learned from this site I have avoided posting questions etc due to the tone that very often comes through in responses....the sort of "what an idiot you are" tone which does not help those of us that are learning.

    Well I will go back to my lurking and avoid posting for the reasons stated above.

    Can you tell us more about your stallion? I am unfamilliar with the breed. How big is he? How long have you had him?

    I don't think anyone is trying to run anyone off. Stud ownership seems to be one of those "hot button" issues.

    I apologize if I came across with that "tone". It wasnt intended. I have just seen too many bad situations over the years with inexperienced stallion owners. I am all for learning and seeking help, but it should be done before you chance putting yourself in a bad situation. I don't think a web forum is the best place to learn about owning/handling stallions. Typed words can't give the hands on needed. Seek out a local breeder and observe, ask tons of questions and get some hands on knowledge with an experienced stallion owner.
