I have a neighbor around the corner. The back of their property shares a fence with the west side of my property.
Last year, they got a yearling stud colt for free. The idea was their 12 yr old beginner daughter would train it. (eyes rolling) The yearling is now a big, strapping, two year old stallion. It is not even halter broke.
They never mess with this stallion, he is totally wild. I know he has not been vaccinated or wormed either.
Last night, I came home and he was in my pasture breeding my nice show mare!
I went over to their house, and only the daughter was home. She came to my house to help me catch the stallion.
We tried to bribe him away with grain, it didn't work. I went and got my mare, to get the stallion to follow her out of my field and he was trying to mount her as I was leading her! I had to hit him in the face with the lead rope to get him off of her.
I got him in his field, closed the gate and he immediately jumped back into my field!
I put my mare up, and told the girl to go home until her parents get back and can come over to get the horse.
The dad and the kids come back and remove the horse. I told him he will have to do something to contain it. He said he would run a strand of hot wire. Sorry, but that is not going to keep your two year old stallion out of my field.
I strongly suggested he have it gelded, which he dismissed.
He ended up putting a couple of panels where the stallion jumped the fence. But, my entire west side fence that borders the stallion's field is crappy old woven wire that is sagging and falling down. Sorry, I don't think a strand of hot wire will help to keep him out.
I think the horse is going to have to be gelded, got rid of, or they will have to put up a suitable fence.
I am sick over this. I don't know what to do. I made a police report about the incident. I called my vet and Margo will have to have a shot to abort. My little pony, Pete is covered with swelling from being kicked.
I can't believe my horses, who I slave over, who I live in the country to have, who I spend all of my money on, are both now injured and Margo possibly bred, because of the irresponsibility of my neighbor!!
