Speaking of the 10 acres, since it is not their's and actually belongs to the Grandmother, can you mention something to her and see if she is willing to require they get rid of some? She should realize since they are on her property she is legally responsible for them. If one of those 7 studs gets out and gets into and adjoining pasture with mares-her fault, if they become emaciated and animal control comes out-her fault, etc. Maybe bringing up those issues would encourage her to take action.
Just a thought.
I'm shocked also that the studs haven't been fighting and I'm going to warn my grandmother that since they're on her property she's responsible I don't think any of us looked at it like that but I will definitely bring it to her attention.

My grandma's house? It's fine, it's not ran down or anything it's a normal house nothing fancy or elaborate.
Or my aunts house? They live in an apartment again not ran down or dirty.
Is that what you were asking?
Or the horses housing? They have a pretty good sized barn and a lean to the fences around the pasture are good. There is no grass but they always have available.
Not quit sure whose house you were asking about.
