boarder rant

Alrite, so I was boarding my mare last year at another persons place because I had a stud colt at my place, and a bunch of other horses to break, and pretty much no room for my mare. She was only 2, and had about 30rides on her, so I was going to leave her for a but and work on the others. I was continuously phoning, and they assured me everything was fine until a few months later I phoned, and the lady notified me that there was a good chance my mare was bred, and about 5months along. I was less than enthused. And to top it off not only was she bred at 2 years old, she was bred by her very fugly Paint/Quarterhorse/Percheron mix. So fast forward to this year, my mare had her baby about a week ago. Now, not only have they informed me that her family was going to name the foal, but they've told me that I can't work with my mare or her filly for another 2weeks, so they can bond! I've always handled foals when they were a day old and have never had any negative effects from it. Now, she is dropping hints that the foal is hers, since it was her stud that made half of it! grrr i hate ******s! Anywho, here is the filly, at about 4days old, fortunately didn't get her moms plain and big head, but she did get her dads fugly front end and long pasterns!

Yeah, mare and baby would be going somewhere else and fast, and said people, friends or not would be told up one side and down the other and (whether you could or not) told that a lawyer would be contacted with possible legal action resulting.

What are the chances she will be bred again as soon as possible by those people?

Seriously. If you said that you didn't want to breed her and she is still your horse, I would seriously sue. I am not joking, I would REALLY sue! That is so awful those people should be ashamed of themselves. They obvilously have no knowledge of horses. I am very strong about horse breeding and that is SOOOO wrong. Move your horse, take the foal if you must and dont talk to them! stupid stupid people!

Sounds to me like these people "let" your mare be bred accidentally on purpose. Listen to everyone else and move them both ASAP before things get worse and another "accident" happens! May just be my paranoid floyd side showing, but still...

hmmm... how do you 'accidentally' get someones mare bred. Surely anyone would realise what would happen if you board a mare with a stallion lol Or if the stallion got out of his yard somehow, its still not very responsible.

i agree with alstaxidermy - they bred her 'acidentally on purpose'. get both of them out of there before the situation gets any worse

rockydq, I too have never seen any ill effects of handling a foal from day 1.... tell this person to go stick it where the sun don't shine and take your mare and foal outta there!

I have had alot of babies and have always handled them from DAY ONE, and I have never had an issue. I would be taking mare and baby out of there right away and telling them...well I will leave that part out, but you know what I mean!

In our contract, there is no mention of me requesting a breeding or permitting one for my mare. She however let her 16month old colt run with my mare...and surprise...they bred! When i first dropped my mare off it was about 6 months before I could see her again, and I've been out there more recently since the lady has moved closer to me. But regardless, I was planning on selling my mare, and finishing her off, but its a tad difficult when she's got a foal at her side. It's hard to come by any land for rent in my area, and I still have no room at my place, which is why I decided to sell her sooner than what I wanted. My mares papers are in my name, so I know she can't claim my mare is hers, but the foal isnt registerable. It just makes me really upset, especially when she was constantly nagging me to geld my colt!I have some people possibly interested in buying the mare, but the baby is another issue.

Edited for poor spelling!
