    How long ago did this happen? Has it been long enough for the vet to confirm a pregnancy?

    I would be inclined to say to the BO "you have mentioned this to the mare's owner haven't you? because MO needs to know if the mare is pregnant."

    It is such an obvious no brainer for the BO...

    Dude, find the mare owner and tell her!

    I could not fathom, not telling her. That's just cra cra.

    Ditto ahf and dilligaff. If you saw this transpire, I believe that you are morally obligated to tell the owner. Too much is at stake to ignore it. Also, if the barn owner would truly try to cover this up, they have no business running a boarding barn, especially one with a resident stallion.

    If I was the SO I would have called the mare owner and paid for the vet visit. My stallion's sperm is valuable to me and if said mare is unacceptable in quality to him I really really don't want said result foal. However if MO wants the resulting foal she can pony up the stud fee and all the impending costs of that foal. To me those two options are it. If I was the MO I'd also call the vet or pay the stud fee.

    Aren't there horse diseases that can be transmitted as well?
    Have another barn to move to and tell mare owner. If it blows up you are prepared to move.

    whomever is responsible for the fencing (the BO) should tell the MO and pay for the vet call and Morning After shot (well it is a week after shot...) but ya get the idea.

    THIS!!! I would be furious if my mare was bred without my knowledge and I wasn't told about it in time to abort or at a very minimum check for twins and ensure proper prenatal care.

    What about the mare who SHOULD NOT be bred due to a history of breeding or foaling complications?

    o.k.
    I looked all over the barn for contact information for this mare's owner and there just is not any posted. I could not even find her owners name.

    It is completely in the stallion owner's hands.

    Mooonie, did you ask the stallion/barn owner of she contacted the mare owner? Maybe you can ask another boarder on who owns the mare.
