    Hard to believe, but I think she's gone even crazier since she was banned from CoTH.
    Not only does her elevator not go all the way to the top - I think it's stuck between lower floors.

    Lisa at Frog Pond has surely dealt with her share of crazy loons. I am not on Facebook much these days, so don't follow closely; but, I am a fan of Lisa & Frog Pond. I'd assume that if the right way to geld Ollie was at the vet's facility that that is how it was done.

    I agree! I noticed this morning I was no longer banned, so I guess she let me out of time out?

    After the whole mess with that poor dog, I cannot imagine caring less what bayou/elysian/whatever has to say on any subject whatsoever.

    It's hilarious that she deletes posts that she doesn't like but still responds to them! You scroll down and it's nothing but post after post of her arguing with nobody over who knows what!

    Oh - I spoke too soon - I'm banned again!

    Laurie - it's funny, isn't it? It's great entertainment for folks like me, who don't sleep at night!

    What rescues have the facilities to handle a stallion? Very few that I know of. They usually get gelded because many rescues 1) don't support breeding and 2) are largely staffed by volunteers, who may or may not be able to handle a stud.

    And I say the latter despite having known nothing but very sweet, perfectly sane studs. It still limited their turn out options and where they could be kept. A rescue is, by nature, worried about finding good homes for the horses they have and not breed conservation. Be angry that he fell into a rescue's hand to begin with, for goodness sake. He has foals on the ground SOMEWHERE, the genes are out there.

    Draft stallions are often more difficult to manage -just due to size. We have had two Percheron stallions and have been around probably hundreds of draft stallions at shows-they are not for a rescue type facility. Gelding is completely appropriate for that situation, even if there was risk. People safety should ALWAYS come first!

    But having been to Portugal, i do know that not all countries geld. Portugal does not geld their Lusitano stallions. They only work the stallions (or at least 90% of the horses ridden are stallions, 10% mares). They use temperament as a huge criteria in who to breed. Using temperament as a criteria for breeding, sure can produce some amazing stallions. Stallions that are used for group lesson horses, for children, etc. So different than other stallions I have met. It is one of the reasons, I love the breed so much.

    So, I can completely understand why not gelding is done also and why some might be against it...

    It's such a shame, it appears that Frog Pond Farm had to shut down their facebook page. Maybe someone can help her set up a page that postings can only be made with permission.

    That would stink to have to deal with putting your horse down, and then getting bashed because you had the horse gelded. Some people just suck.

    A friend of mine is looking for a home for her 16yo pony stallion that doesn't fit into her breeding program, she'd give him away if someone could use him if not she'll keep him till he croaks.

    People keep saying that he needs to be gelded to find a home, but we think that a 16yo green gelding is worth less then a 16yo breeding stallion. Plus the surgery complications are just not worth it.

    Her property is set up for stallions so keeping him intact is no big deal, and I don't think that a 16yo stallion gelded will suddenly be able to be turned out with a herd without causing problems.
