Danged if id help the sorry individual. All you are doing is enabling.
Actually, he‘s starting to figure out that breeding ever mare in the world to his stud isn‘t a very good game plan. He‘s down to 5 horse mares and the two ponies. All left are fairly nice crosses with this stallion. (Every year 2-3 mares are left open) This is overall a major improvement from previous years where he was putting 10 foals on the ground.
The problem with the care is around here is it's perfectly acceptable. Even the most respectable breeders tend to let their horses sit until two and only visited by a vet at gelding time. This man is an old style horse breeder and he‘s very set in his ways. The biggest problem now is he sells all his worst horses and holds onto the best. He‘s waiting to get their worth, but without at least one of his horses out there showing and proving itself and the stud, nobody wants to pay 1500 (there are a few worth that much, but nobody knows about them. They only see the lesser quality ones he bred in years past) Posted via Mobile Device
