Elle, 1997 Oldenburg mare
Yeah I sure wouldn't want to risk it either! Especially when the plan is to geld the colt anyhow. This is a limited number of horses, too, and so big group herd dynamics aren't going to work the same way here.No. Just not your experience. I was guardian for a very troubled teen that had sex with a 12 year old. In the school bathroom. She was 14 had only started her womanhood a couple of months prior. Not regular. Well, 9 months later we were up walking the floors with a baby. Every one matures at their own rate. No matter the species there will be those that mature early and those that mature late. What worked for you won't work for others as the situations are different. You can't ignore the possibility. Especially here in the states in less rural situations where there are few privately managed herds.
