So here an interesting predicament. OK mare at our barn last year, Friesan stud escapes tries to breed but no take. They tried to breed again and again vet said not pregnant. Mare was there for training and went back to owners as unbred. She went home in Aug last summer. Later that month she turns up at auction and then a horse rescue they pick her up saving her from slaughter. October she gets adopted still no one suspects she is in foal. Come March this year she is getting quite the hay belly and after the vet comes confirmed in foal. May 9th she has foal. Meanwhile my BO is trying to find new owners to see if she is in fact in foal, no one responds. So baby foal (so cute by the way) arrives BO finds out. Question is now who owns the foal or should there at least be a stud fee?
