    I would find this a valid point to really put your foot down.

    I personally am not a pushy person. I hate conflict and rarely ever force my way or opinion on anyone. Yet one time I was boarding at someone's property and they had told someone who was not horse savvy that they could bring their newly bought stud to the stables and place it in a pen with a 2.5 foot tall fence.

    It was spring, my friend's mare was in season and was being currently kept with my gelding, and another mare on the facility was about to drop a foal. In short, I raised hell. Soon as I heard the stud calling out of the trailer when they drove up I went into protection mode. There was no way the stud was not going to jump that small fence with the four mares on the property in season. My gelding was the only male and I was worried for his safety, the mares safety and the foal who shared a fence line with him

    In the end I managed to convince everything that it was a horrible idea and the people had to load the horse back onto the trailer and leave.

    I talked to her and my sis that has the other mare has talked to her and told her that her mare has a bad leg so she can't carry the extra weight of a foal. So B has decided to not get this mini. She is talking to her sis and brother to see if they have a mare mini instead they would be willing to give her child.

    Not to mention the fact that the mini could be at risk too. I know a breeding could technically happen...but when I asked the vet about my stunted shetland, he said he'd be ok (testicles haven't descended) to be with my draft cross filly when we move (implying he would not be able to reach). BUT that his studdy behaviors will likely irk her, and it could end very badly for him.

    Thank goodness they aren't getting him!! My main concern would be the foal Sunshine is about to have. A stud will most assuredly kill that foal, even geldings have been known to kill foals. If they aren't experienced handlers they have no business having a stud anyways, regardless of whether it's a mini. Our mini was a stud when we first got him, and OMG what a handful! He had one thing on his mind and one thing only. Needless to say he was gelded within days of his arrival on the soonest available appointment. LOL. It's unfortunate that ignorant people don't understand the responsibility of owning horses and think it's just as simple as having a dog or something.

    Anyways, SOOO glad it worked out and they changed their minds!

    I mean even I was like, I know nothing about a mini! So I knew better. At first I thought it was a mare, and I thought well, we may could handle that. Our fences are good. But, then I was like holy cow ! Really!?!?!

    Honestly right now I wouldn't want any unfamiliar horses brought around Sunshine. It's a lot of stress, but it also introduces possibility of disease and illness, which she definitely does not need right now. Can they not wait until she has foaled and the little one has enough time to get his feet under him?? I know it's hard because the property is shared, but they need to understand there is a defenseless foal on the way any day now (Seriously Sunshine, ANY DAY NOW!!! LOL) and that it's a horrible idea to throw another horse into the mix.

Do you only have one horse? If the land is YOURS just fence off your acre and keep your horse there maybe?

    I would try and get her to look at the pros and cons of things. Minis are a whole different ball game in my opinion, just as it is owning a QH vs a Draft.
    Hahaha baby stallion minis are crazy xD the few I know

    Yeah, it will be awhile now. They was bringing him Friday! With the change of plans if she does get one, which I talked to her about founder wormer and different things you have to watch with a smaller horse and she didn't seem thrilled. So she may not get one period.

    A stallions a stallion, I don't care if its 8HH or 17HH.. and nobody has the business of owning one unless they know what they are doing and understand that you have to be on top of them 110% of the time.

    I envision this being said by the 2 horses in your avatar pic, while smoking cigars and nodding in agreement about how unruly and obnoxious stallions are
