    I would of worried about Sunshine's soon to be foal. I wouldn't be introducing a new horse with a baby on the way at all. God only knows what kinds of conditions it might expose the foal too. A good friend of mine just lost her yearling filly to bloodworms because a "friend" put a "rescue" in the pasture with her filly. Turns out the rescue was full of bloodworms and got into her filly. Her and the vet tried all they could once they found out the actual problem, but it was too late.

    Well she just called me excited. They are bringing her a gelding tomorrow :*(. I am hoping that her sis in law backs out of the deal. Cause I have visions of soon to be 4 horses I'll be dealing with by myself and only two will be mine. With me working, 3 kids, college.... Yeah cause my other mare that's out here I was told by my other sis in law she's not moving her with her any more.

    Wow. That really sucks. I hate to add pressure or stress you more, but you should be making plans on how to deal with Sunshine having a new foal any time now and a gelding being tossed in. Like I said before there have been many times that geldings have killed foals! PLEASE don't assume he is safe because he's gentle, or old, or whatever! They can turn in an instant!

    And don't take care of their horses, make them take responsibility for their own animals. Don't enable them.

    I just asked when the last time it was wormed and coggins pulled. She said I have no idea about that stuff.... :(

    I've tried. All I can do I guess it fence my back yard double so they can't touch or what?!? Well my back yard is an acre. Mil says she let me put a horse out to run so she can't really say no to another.

    You do what you have to. I would keep them separate for now, then down the road slowly introduce them and go from there. But either way that gelding should not be brought on the property with a mare in foal without having coggins and vaccinations. What's the rush why can't they wait to at least have this done??

    I told her it wasn't coming in with my mare without the test! :) so she called and they are doing blood work tomorrow morning. It's a cart pony they take it around and race it, so no telling what its been around.

    So, they brought the PONIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the pouring rain!! They have already went through my fence that I had fenced off where we sowed grass seed!!! Yes I said ponies! They brought her two geldings! So on top of me getting suspended from work I can't go back until the 25th if I even have a job then. I now have a fence to fix in the pouring ass rain. And the &$^*@^#$* other mare out here has gotten so hurt from trying to kick them she is probably going to have to be put down.
