I agree very irresponsible but it looks like the OP agrees, so what point at you all trying to make?
Yeah she could have left them alone or separated them before she had him gelded but like she said its her responsibility and her fault if the mare gets pregnant.
I think its time to, like Luby said, to stop beating the dead horse...and I think that is what the OP is trying to say as well.
I am new here but from what I have seen/read from the OP in other threads she seems very knowledgeable and responsible so I think it was a little unfair of some of you to accuse her of lack of care for her animals.
I hope she does update us with the news he has been gelded and the mare is not pregnant but until then I think everyone needs to chill out.
Why get mad about something that has yet to happen (that we know of).
Also, drumrunner, as her friend I feel you should have allowed the OP to answer NdAppy's question first. The OP may have not wanted that info out there yet or whatever...I know I would have been upset had someone spoke for me.
sierrams1123 I hope the gelding goes good and your cute little guy is okay. I also hope your mare is not pregnant but if she is that you decide whatever is best.
