    Lilmamabergie, welcome to the forum.

    If you haven't already realized it, breeding or even owning a stallion is a hot button. The truth is that owning a stallion as a first horse is a very bad idea regardless of the occasional success stories you may hear. They need to be handled differently then a mare or gelding and they can be particularly hard to handle when they are around a mare in season.

    Breeding is another hot button. Too many members come on here with the "Black Beauty" syndrome and think it would be so cute to have a little one without thinking several years ahead and what care is necessary to make the foal worth the effort and expense. Without thinking, also, of the consequences of having to sell a foal that no one wants (yes I know that they always say they want to keep them for themselves and forever but that rarely happens in real life and the foal becomes another animal that no one wants).

    An old saying that comes to mind is that a good stallion makes a great gelding.
