Last night my sisters horse Kayla got stuck in a gate and tore up her legs. My dad's a vet but, he was out helping his friends horse foal, we called out abother vet who live about 2 hrs away from us. He's not an equine vet so he only could help fix exterior wounds like cuts and bruises. That was until about 1:30 am whe I finally went to bed. (so tired) My dad checked her out this morning and found out that Kayla is 2 and 1/2 months pregnant! Bullets the only Mature stallion soo... It looks like he's going to be a father. Bandit was born to my sisters other horse Blazeing Arrow. (long story)
I hope she will get better soon! It's so weird to read your post because my name is Kayla lol

The worst part is, the neighbor is a SHERIFF!) The second time: one of our mares was being ridden by a cowboy and he decided that he didn't like her and threw her out into a buddy's pasture. Needless to say, there was a stud in that pasture that got her. The baby's name is Whiskey Tango Foxtrot lol.
Haha! Love the name xD

Country Boy, is Bandit gelded yet? I don't know how old he is, but I know that young horses can get a mare pregnant. You probably already know that though and know your situation, just giving you a heads up! I bet it's going to be a cute foal, kind of sucks that it was a surprise one though. How does your sister feel?

BarrelBunny, if someone got my mare pregnant on purpose without my permission I would be so mad! I'm glad everything worked out though.

Bandit's not even a yearling yet, so I don't think he can get mare pregnant. I hate surprise pregnancies; they throw you for a loop and mess stuff up. This comes at a time when I'm in the middle of doing ground work (basic stuff) with Bamdit! Now we're going to have 2 youngsters running around The barn?! (help me!!) My sister's fine with it; she always thought that they should breed. (She didn't do this!)

AHHH so now I've had a spanner thrown into the works.

This mare that I want, I still want her, but another horse has come up closer for cheaper.. and he's a better size (16.2 rather than 16h flat) AND prettier/better put together. BUT, he bucks, and the mare doesn't. I can handle bucking, I've trained a pony out of it before no worries and my boy occasionally gets a bee in his bonnet and off he goes. I'm just not really sure... I mean I'm not bothered by a challenge but my confidence is pretty bad with unfamiliar horses. Course I would only ride in the round pen to begin with, and I have equipment that's designed to significantly decrease the power of a buck, but it greatly depends on what this horse is like... how big the bucks ACTUALLY are...

K so I'm stuck! I do want a project horse, and I know I can handle what the cheap bucker can throw at me (depending on how bad he is), AND buying him would leave some money aside in case something goes wrong... but the other mare is so lovely and would be a project but an easier one... I think the solution is to go look at both but that's easier said than done too...

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

I hope you can decide which one would be a better fit! I know I wouldn't want a bucker, but that's because I don't want a project :)

County fair starts on August 1st!! I'm so excited but also nervous. It will be Lookit's and my first "official" show together (the last one doesn't count because we only did one event :] ). I hope we do okay. I'm not looking to place, our goal is to just have control. Haha! :)

Mk so Satin's sale fell through (loooooonnnnngggg story, buyer turned out to have a slightly sketchy history) but I have another home lined up for her that is an absolute definite because it's actually my mother who has fallen in love with madam. Which removes the problem re getting another horse while things aren't quite perfect, because I said to mum she can have Satin for free if she pays for/helps pay for a new horse for me, and then helps with vet bills IF something goes wrong. I WIN. I always win.

At the moment I am leaning towards the bucker, because he has SUCH a sweet face (pictured below) and I just can't see him being a dirty bucker, just in pain or evading, either of which I know how to fix.

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

Go with the first thought you had. Don't over think things.

Bullet is the father! I get them confused when typing all the time. I'll call Bullet "SilverB" to clear that up.
