He is a stallion and will behave like one. I have owned horses for 46 years.
This is my third stallion
Country boy is a young man and his father is an equine vet.
Probably has more knowledge and experience than any of us on this thread or forum.
What he and I do with our horses is none of your business.
You are trying to be disruptive. That is uncalled for. Shalom
I'm not going to sit idly by and watch people make comments about how if their stallion gets a few mares pregnant, it is NBD and they'll just sell the foals. That right there should tell you how much experience this kid has.
It's easy to be whoever you want to be, or whoever you want your parents to be on the internet. I would hope that the son of a vet would have more common sense about horse care if that were true.
I seriously doubt that he has "more knowledge or experience than any of us on this thread or forum". He is a teenage boy who gives the impression of being a pretty novice owner.
The funny thing is, I've spent time around stallions, known of which have leapt over pipe fences (that was you, wasn't it?) or gotten out to attack other horses. They are also able to be around other horses and don't have to be kept in isolation.
There are few things that get me riled up, but poor basic horse management, unnecessary breedings, and horses getting injured in ways that could be completely avoided are right at the top of my list.
