Well, my cousins have 'given' me one of the mini's to do with as I please, but I can't sell it because it originally belonged to their young daughter and they are just going to tell her that i'm training it for her and taming it down, so she won't get all upset...
Honestly, I kinda wish they hadn't given me the mini, but at least with me, he'll get better care... gelding him at the moment is a no-go, I have way too many other things that I've already planned for that have to get done, such as dental bills, a saddle for my seven year old gelding, breeding my mare, and a new computer... but he will be gelded eventually.
He's super hard to catch... I had him in the backyard small paddock, but he managed to get out back with the mares around dark... >.<
It's a little annoying that she gets attacked for having her own plans and agenda when these horses are really none of her concern. She's trying to help and everyone here jumps on the bash band wagon as soon as she mentions breeding her own mare (which won't happen until later in the year anyway).
I know all of these people personally, outside of The Forum. She will do all of this work with the mini and then have it taken away when her cousins realize their daughter now has a cute pony for their kids to play with again. It isn't a good situation to be in, IMO.
You aren't making any sense, TheNinja.
Her first post she said these aren't her horses, and that's fine. But then her succeeding post apparently one of them is now hers and
Nowhere in her original post did she mention that her cousins GAVE her a stud mini.. AND he managed to get into the paddock with the mares.
That is when all the "attacking" (which isn't attacking at all, it's common sense to keep studs away from mares and the OP should know this) happened because she said she rather breed her own mare than geld the mini stud.. to which I said "It'll happen sooner than later free of charge if you don't geld the mini."
So because you know the details and the situation better than we do since we are on the internet and the OP wasn't clear, you will interpret it as "attacking" which again it is not.
There are too many backyard breeders either doing it deliberately or doing it by being ignorant (and ignorant only means you lack the knowledge/experience.. it isn't an insult.)
We are passionate, at least I know I am passionate, about gelding and seperating studs and mares. And only breeding if you feel this horse will benefit the horse world.. not just because 'it's a cutesy wootsy foal'
