    Default Beautiful TB mare and her 2 month old colt in MD

    I have a client that is insanely aggravating. I advised him not to buy a broodmare but he did. I advised him not to breed her but he did. I advised him not to breed her back after she foaled but he did. Then I sent him a bill and his check bounced. He told me he bounced six checks that day. Great. So he asked me if I could "dispose" of the horses. I told them they were not garbage to take to the landfill but that I would help rehome them for him.

    The first thing I did was call the vet and abort the current foal. I have not had him out to check yet to make sure it was gone. A few days later the mare's papers arrived along with a bill of sale for both her and the colt stating I purchased them for $1. So apparently he has "disposed" of them by dumping them on me.

    The mare is very nice. She has a fused ankle but has been sound on it for the year I had her. I think she could easily become a pleasure horse. Maybe even a show horse with some training. I also think she would be a great cross with a nice warmblood. She is 16.2 and solidly built.

    She came back from the breeding farm very skinny. So far we haven't had any luck getting the weight back on her. I am guessing that will have to wait until she is weaned. The first pics are from when I dropped her off to foal three weeks before her due date. The second pics are the day I picked her up from the breeding farm. Documenting her condition as it were. I can get some current pics next week when I get home from California. For right now PM is the best route to contact me. I will add my phone number when I get back home. Please help me find them a good home. Use your contacts to spread the word. Needless to say someone else's mare and foal were not in my budget. Especially after the bounced check!

    Is the colt registered or does he come with the paperwork?

    I do not know for sure if the stud fee was paid. I will do everything in my limited ability to make sure he gets registered.

    Oh no. I'm so sorry you've got more unpaid horses dumped on you

    I'll spread the word around down here.

    This nicks the foal back to Northern Dancer on both sides of the pedigree. Hope you can find the mare and foal a good home, Laurierace. What a jerk the 'owner' is ... and smart AND considerate move, on your part, Laurierace, to get the vet to abort the existing fetus.

    Just wondering if the mare's breeder might take her back?
