So yesterday I see that my neighbor has put a mare that she rescued in the land next door to us. It is over grown with crap, mostly mesquites and cactus, and really has no good grass or anything nutritional. This mare is probably a 1 or 2 on the body scale. She has had her for 2 months and I think the mare looks worse than she did when she got her...not because she isn't feeding her but she isn't feeding her what she needs to get her to a healthy weight. So we are talking and she said yeah we put her over here so she could get some good grass..whatever I think to myself and then she proceeds to tell me that they exposed her to the stud down the road
I bet the look on my face showed what I was thinking but I said "Why would you do that?? She is to skinny to be bred!!" She said that the mare wanted it
(umm she is an animal and that is instinct nothing else) and said she probably didn't take anyway. She said that she wanted to breed her other horse but her husband said no...so they bred this poor poor sad looking mare. I am just sooooooo irritated with her. She is the same one who won't get her cats fixed. So I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I have half a mind to buy the mare off of her. Hmmm maybe I should. Oh and I think this mare is in her teens. 18 maybe??? UGHH I AM JUST SO DISGUSTED!
