OMG! Alot going on!

So getting another horse, a 4 year old broken gelding for my
hubby to ride. He's a beautiful blanket appaloosa horse. The
bad news is I sorta gave my grandpa my colt for LETTING me
get this other horse and now he's talking about moving the
Stallion in the pasture with my mare, Chava. I do not want her to
Get knocked up, she has always been JUST a riding horse and
I don't want any grade foals, so I am probably going to have to trade
Her to my great uncle who I'm getting the gelding from for a
broken RED stallion (beautiful), but HE WILL BE A GELDING
WhenI bring him home (if I get him...)

There is no talking my grandpa out of his decisions....I haven't
Even had Chava long and I wanted a riding horse to event on,
Not a pregnant horse and my grandpa is PENDING on gelding
Stormy...people can be SO STUPID!!! The Red Stallion is
Definitely a looker though and very well built and I know Chava
Would be taken WELL care of, I'm just so confused....

The good news is my great uncle is letting my keep the app
For a few weeks to ride just to decide if I like him and want to
Buy him or not, so that's nice...

Anyone got any advice?

I did read just didn't know how to reply...

Try talking thru it with him. It's pretty late in the year for a baby, be sure to tell him that. Tell him you would really like it if he didn't put the stud in with your mare because you don't want her breed. Who owns the pasture? Is there some place else that you can move Chava?

Well I would start by telling him that you want your mare to be a riding horse and not a grade producing broodmare.
I would also tell him about the slaughter rate of grade and even reg. Stock.
What are his intentions on this colt? Is he planning on using him for breeding purposes? Showing? Or ?

I would be upfront with all your concerns of this matter and hopefully your grandpa and you will come to a reasonable resolution.

Good luck!

Just a thought... are you putting two stallions in the same field? Or one recently-gelded gelding and a stallion together?

Does he want to breed them or is he just wanting to use that field? Maybe you can split it? You'd have to use a sturdy fence and probably add electric though....

We are making one big pasture in the back yard, my grandpa
Said he is going to bring the stud home so he can be taken care
Of and gain some weight (he NEEDS to), and he knows I don't
Want to breed them and he's like "Oh well, I'm sorry if he does, he
Does..." and there is no where I can move Chava at either.

Quite Frankly I don't know what he wants to do with the colt,
I believe he would like to breed two of his mares to him. He
Wouldn't understand all that stuff about grade horses and slaughter
Rate, he doesn't know too much about horses as he thinks he does
And I doubt he would care about horse slaughter, though I am very
Against it.

NOOOOOOOOOO I am not putting two stallions in the same field,
IF (and I do mean a big "IF") I get the red stally he will be a gelding
When I bring him home.
