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.
Well I know who I am, and who db is, but I don't know who the heck you are.

I am as opposed to poor equine management as anyone, and as a long time former breeder feel very strongly about responsible breeding, as everyone on here knows, but this is not the venue to jump all over someone about their parents' breeding practice - over which I'm rather sure Countryboy doesn't have any control to begin with...there is a breeding topic for that with lots of threads about accidental breedings and irresponsible breeding practices - or you can start a new thread. This is a laid back "neighborly" thread to say hey, have conversations, and pick on Jewish cowboys...not to judge others. After all, the thread title is Texas Horse Friends...

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
I hope he was successful.

spurstop I do hope he was successful.
After being in a roundpen and getting hung up on the fence I do hope something good came out of it.
As stated in the thread he was there while His 3 acre pen that is enclosed with steel pipe and is 6' tall was being cleaned.
as also stated in the thread he is fine and bred another mare the next day.
Succesfully I might add.
And yes I now laugh about the accident. Probably for the rest of my life.
Your deisre to disrupt the good feelings and friendships nutured on this thread is somewhat disturbing.
With the amount of posts and views this thread has received why would you want to be so negative? Shalom

oh yes, i hear it - the band practicing in the early morning - the jets that fly in formation over my pastures on game days - I see the wrecks at every intersection for the first 6 weeks of school while FISH are trying to figure their way out around town....

they all look like 12 yr olds to me - way too young to be going to college. I don't understand - but then I think it is because I'm just getting older and the restaurants here are so LOUD you can't have a conversation with the people sitting in front of you.......oh the joys of college towns!

Try driving in downtown Austin the first 6 weeks of school.
Now that is dangerous.
Or any time during the school year on 6th street.
I do understand about the loud music in places.
I am hard of hearing and have two hearing aids so if I can hear the music it is WAY TOO LOUD. Shalom

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 lord! I live on a Ranch and have been around horses for all my life. Just because I don't know every blasted detail doesn't make me a novice. I've bred him several times already (all of them went great) we keep him away from the females and other geldings as well. It's no use to held him now; he's 9 years old.
