    I enjoy Dallas and am a city boy at heart. Except when it comes to my horses. Having them in the back yard and available 24/7 is the best reward for living in the country.
    Country boy I bet you liked all those girls in Dallas.
    Austin has more though so when you go to UT remember that Austin has more women than men.
    So even the nerdy guys can get a date. Shalom
    It certainly wasn't a town I enjoyed. I like the country and Austin way better. Has much better girls too.

    Well, now we know why you went to UT...

    I had the same situation, though. When I went to Mizzou there were 14,000 women and 12,000 men. In addition, there were 2 women's colleges there. Stephens College had 2,000 women and Christian College had 600. So there were 4,600 more women than men.

    Of course I didn't need those odds, but it wouldn't have been too hard for you to get a mercy date there just like in Austin...

    Too funny, and true, not to share.

    I can not believe that this is just ignored. Well, I can, which is sad.

    This attitude is absolutely horrendous. Geld the stallion. Why do you need a stallion? Are you a breeding facility? Are you trying to better a breed? I doubt it, because you sound like a very novice horse owner. Have a lick of common sense, for crying out loud.

    My stallion is a gentleman too but I do not ride him around other horses or allow them to approach him.
    I also keep the geldings as far away from his pen as possible.
    The mares can approach his pen and do but last year he attacked a gelding after his pen was left unlatchted.
    We had a palomino gelding that looked like a zebra.
    From the numerous long scrathes that ran the length of his body.
    That was when I made the decision to build a 3 acre pen of metal just for the stallion. Shalom
    Sounds like a fantastic horse.

    Spurstop, lighten up a bit...you need to read from the beginning (or at least several pages back of posts)most of our posts here are more sarcasm than anything (metaphor and innuendo, too)...not a reality.....I think maybe you jumped in and just took it at face value - these folks have been teasing and goofing off here for many many a post.....

    I have actually. And having read Country Boy's posts in this thread and others, I don't believe he is joking around. He's probably actually serious. And I've read db's posts here and in other threads, and I'm fairly certain he's not joking around either.

    I do read this thread regularly. Have you noticed how many "accidental breedings" this forum has? So no, I'm not going to "lighten up."

    Spurstop my stallion IS a wonderful horse. Excellent confirmation and disposition and pedigree.
    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

    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.

    Country Boys father is an Equine vet and I am sure he has more experience with horse than most of us.
    My stallion did not leap over a metal fence. The gate was not latched as I posted.
    He did somehow lift a metal gate off its hinges.
    If a stallion and gelding are anywhere near a mare and in the same pasture the stallion will attack the gelding.
    Its called instinctive behavior.
    Accidents happen.
    Your concern for the 26 other horses that I own is noted but not nescesary they are safe and healthy I can assure you.
    Now if chastizing a teenage boy makes you feel better then go ahead.
    By the way Shalom means peace and is not my name. Shalom
