I'm pretty sure that Sierra knows what she's doing and if she's made the decision to get the mini she'll be responsible for he and the mare...The mare won't be bred. End of story.
I personally know Sierra, Dodger, and Dodger's current owners..I have for YEARS. Sierra is a responsible owner and I'm pretty sure she knows what she's doing. Her mare gets along with any other horse she's ever been with. Including all of my horses, she has never tried to hurt any smaller animals either. Her mare has been around smaller ponies at my house and our dogs running around in the pasture. She has a "whatever" attitude and will just walk away from a horse trying to play with her. Dodger has been turned out on grass pasture with no problems that I know of for years. He has also been out with a good sized herd of mares and geldings. None of the mares have ended up in foal and Dodger doesn't exactly act like a stud, he almost as the attitude of "doesn't know" what he is and that he still has all of his equipment.
I see NO problem with going to get Dodger tomorrow and letting him meet Penney. Dodger lives less than a mile from Sierra and maybe two miles from me. We are good friends with his owner and both have worked with her and her horses before...I also know that if things don't work out with Dodger and Penney, that his owner would take him back.
Sierra, if you need to you can borrow my trailer to go get him...Actually I'm not doing much tomorrow and I could go with ya! Just call or text me whenever..
I understand she is gelding him but it didn't sound like she would be doing it immediatley or why would she mention the height difference.
Lots of people put a mare with a horse that doesn't act like he knows he has the equipment and then we get the threads," could my mare be pregnant".
Not sure why it is big deal that I pointed out that a mini can breed a 16H mare as I don't think most people would think it was possible.
Not sure why my posting my opinion is an issue for her and why she is getting huffy about it.
If you don't want people to post do not ask for advice on here.
