Don't have enough extra money to get them gelded.

If you don't have enough money to geld your boys, why are breeding one of your mares? I'm just curious because taking care of a pregnant mare is very expensive.

Maybe its time to thin the herd a bit? No offence but when it comes down to not having the money to give them the health attention they deserve such as a farrier and gelding then its time to thin the herd.

You have beautiful horses, I love appys but if you can't afford maintenance and continue breeding you need to step back and re access things.

Agreed. Slipper foot can be nasty. It can even lame a horse - I would advise a good trimming for all of them.

Some beautiful horses there though. What do you do with them all? I could never keep that many, I don't think I'd ever have enough time and money!

Edit: It seems you also don't have the money... That doesn't seem like responsible horse owning. You should have enough money to properly care for all of them. It may be beneficial to sell a few of them (also to have extra money as an emergency fund)

I should probably add that they aren't all my horses just Angel and I have little to do with what happens with the others other then I help train them. And we usually don't breed anymore but I wanted one from her.

I can certainly understand the financial strains that come with having horses - but if you are short of the money necessary to geld the horses you have, perhaps you might want to reconsider your other thread in the breeding section where you are talking about having yet another foal added to the load.

They have been trimmed so no worries and none were in pain....And I train them then sell them but I was really sick for a few years and so they weren't worked with much and there for not sold so I am back on my game and training and stuff again.
