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.
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...
