I wouldn't really worry about the horses as long as the fences are good. Most horses leave electric fencing alone. Small kids are a little more unpredictable, just keep an eye on them.

^^ This.

Also, are you aware of the fact that it costs way more to raise a foal from birth than it does to buy one that is green broke to ride. Plus you can pick out exactly what you want. What if the mare has another colt? Are you just going to keep allowing her to be bred?

Based on your posts it's pretty obvious that you aren't very experienced with horses. What do you know about training young horses? Or handling stallions? How about conformation? How do you know you aren't breeding horses with bad legs that are going to have all kinds of medical issues in the future, that will cost you thousands?

I'm assuming you have no plans to geld the colt? The colt will be old enough to breed before you know it and he WILL breed to his mother. He will also breed to his sister (if the mare does have a FILLY).... That is, if the full grown stud doesn't kill him first.

You may think this is all a good idea now, and that you've got it all handled. But I GUARANTEE, if you don't change your tune you are going to have some serious problems on your hands, and there will be 4 more horses on this earth that aren't being handled or cared for properly, to add to the thousands that already exist.
I'm serious when I say you are playing with fire, so don't be surprised when you burn yourself bad.

This is just sad.

After this new little one is born I am getting the stud and colt clipped.

Woodsman reminds me of my father so I can relate. Same lingo, same everything. The older values, they work, and especially for hauling logs and working in the woods I can see nothing wrong. Around here backyard breeders are people who have two great woods horses and need another. Big time breeders don't get much credit around our parts. As long as he has intentions of getting them cut when she throws another foal I think he'll have some good horses on his hands.

Alright to start this reply off I did not come on this forum to create and cause drama I am here to share and learn knowledge (period). I have been and still use a mobile device while useing the voice recognition app I apologize if any words have been / are misspelled. Secondly I took the response as an insult toward me of my horsemanship abilities. I know I am no Clinton Anderson nor Pat Parelli or any of those other big shot horse trainers nor do I claim to be. You know nothing of me nor my horses,but yet you made all these assumptions. Didn't you know assumptions is the mother of all boo-boo's. Of your snide remarks of this is just sad and that they will be 4 more horses in this world not getting the care that they need yada yada yada. As I replied to the other person once the little one is born I am getting the stud and the colt clipped and if the lil one is a colt then I'll get him clipped as well. As for the stud killing the colt well he is 17 months old and the stud hasn't done anything but play with him sure they challenge one another but that's as far as it goes. I do not train my horses in the way that everyone else does or the run of the mill people do. This does not make me any less experienced. You know people say if it ain't broke don't fix it well that is just the problem in itself a lot of people in the horse world continue to do the same thing over and over and over and over as for myself I do not believe in shoes on a horse, putting a bit in its mouth, stalling a horse, braiding its tail and mane, cutting its whiskers all these things that people do to the horses just to make them pretty in their eyes well actually keeping anything confined whether it be a fish in a fish bowl a dog on a tie-out a horse in a stall a bird in a bird cage 24-7
If the horse does what I wanted to do who's to say I'm done it wrong. But to keep from dragging this on out more than it needs to be I can assure you and you can be rest assured that my horses are taken care of I know I cannot sit here and and tell you with 100% accuracy that any horse being born is not going to have something wrong with it nor can any other just because it is the 15 world champion horse red with a 15 champion horse doesn't mean it's going to be a perfect horse
