i actually do know "the birds and the bees" i know you cant keep them together but i was just asking how long i can keep them together until the colt is gelded. Thats why i am asking questions so i know what i am doing before i get any horses. Everyone starts some where
If they have been running together then chances are that the mare is already in foal.
Also they need to be apart for several weeks after the Colt is gelded.
my mother is the one funding it. She is allowing me to get a horse and she wants sheep and cattle. I have well done my research and i know alot more than i show. I know about medical expenses (like teeth floating, and things like cuts and scrapes etc) what hay and nutrition , what i want to do with the horse and what discipline, how to fit a saddle. And we will have our own pasture a stable to keep them in. I only want to trail ride so i don't need long lessons. Trust me i have been doing my research watching tons of videos on how to care for a horse (like how to pick a horses feet, how to bathe them) and we are trying to find someone so i can get used to at least riding one. of course will learn things along the way (i will have a trainer to help me along the way) and i do know how much horses cost in the long run that's why i will be getting a job. (we will be moving this summer btw)
this on its own says that you are not experienced enough to deal with young horses.
You can watch all the videos, read all the books, talk the talk but unless you have hands on experience it is a very different ball game - horses have the potential of being lethal certainly 99% of them will take advantage of novice people without an experienced person to help.
After all, they have never read the books or watched the videos.
wishful thinking. Just gettin ready for anything. I already know the basics like grooming, leading, feeding. Just getting a more tips. Ill be getting a horse round late this year so i have lots of time
Keep it as wishful thinking and take hours and hours of lessons and as many hours again learning how to handle them.
As a child my wishful thinking was to own a stallion and to be galloping him all over the place with the wind blowing through his mane and my hair.
Fortunately my parents sent me for lessons and by the time I was in my early teens all thoughts of owning a stallion had disappeared.
