    Thumbs up Responsible Breeders Challenge

    This was discussed on Fugly.
    A listing of all breeders who are willing to accept responsibility for what they have produced.
    In this hard economic time, we should not be producing any lives that we cannot accept some responsibility for.
    I challenge everyone here to step up and add themselves to the list.

    http://www.horsereunions.com/welcome.html
    I am there.
    Who will accept the challenge next?
    Karousel Farms, Breeders of Fine Trakehner Sporthorses.

    Done. I just took two of my Blue Who's sons (yearling and 2 yr old full brothers) from a lady who bred them and then found herself in terrible financial shape. She is greatful for them to be raised here at Sugarbrook. I would never NOT take a pony born here or by one of my stallions if they cannot be taken care of properly. Its the responsible thing for me to do.

    I signed up-but I was wondering if there was a way to update my post. The more I thought about it there is a gelding I got off the track a while ago-even though I didn't breed him I wouldn't mind finding him, and I would like to add that to my post I there. I will try to contact someone...

    Derby Lyn: I did the exact same thing. I just contacted them and they (Cathy) said to just resubmit and they would use the 2nd. one!!

    Done for me too! We only breed 2-4 ponies a year but would be happy to have any of them back.

    My mom used to breed TBs and we are looking for that special filly (Whirling Isabella) who spent time at the vet school as a weanling. We would love to take her back!

    I was happy to add our farm to the list. A great idea - I hope all responsible breeders will participate.

    Done here too a few days ago. I even added a horse I didn't breed to my looking for list. Hopefully all three turn up someday.

    Happy to add my name to the list.

    The following question came up over a dinner among sport horse breeders.

    As a (former) dog breeder, I am required to be sponsored into the club and to sign a list of ethical commitments to be a member of my national breed organization--including, but not limited to: not breeding animals with known genetic faults, testing of breeding stock, full disclosure of potential issues to buyer of pets, spaying and neutering of those destined for pet homes, and taking back or replacing those who don't fit their new homes. In addition, most dog clubs have rescue organizations connected with their breed. Since I'm no longer breeding, the latest addition to our family is a rescue from our breed that was placed through the rescue group.

    Where do our equine registries position themselves in this regard? Is there such a code?

    Done. I know at least one foal I produced is being wrecked by its current owner, but they refuse to sell her back..... I'd love to get her full sister back, tho....

    Absolutely done. I always offer a full money back guarantee for any reason for up to two years; and I always ask for first right of refusal. I also agree to take back any horse that is *temperamentally* unsuitable, for resale or just to keep.

    Life changes. I had one that was quite behind in board, and by contract I did not need to buy it back in full, could've done the whole default thing, but I returned full purchase price. I was blessed to be able to, it was the Right Thing. Life had changed, the priorities had changed... ended up being a blessing in disguise for me.

    I never breed if I haven't sold what's for sale. (but you can't SELL if you don't HAVE anything for sale ) I also am fully prepared to offer ANY foal I produce a home for life should it be unsuitable for sale.

    But then again, I'm just a backyard breeder, two mares and all...

    As one who works for a Thoroughbred adoption program, I thank all of you breeders who've stepped up to the plate and offered your help (and contact information).

    Thank you very much!
