Heute habe ich wieder die kleine Santi besucht.
Sie war total anhänglich und verschmust. Wer sie kennt, weiß dass das eigentlich untypisch für sie ist. Ob das wohl an der Trächtigkeit liegt? Heute sind wir bei Tag 79 von 336, damit ist noch nicht ganz ein Drittel geschafft...
Ich frage mich ob ihre kleine Plautze ein Babybauch oder eher ein Weidebauch ist? 😂
I’ve gotten quite a few uninformed comments lately, so I wanted to open a discussion about breeders and the decisions we make. No, it isn’t all cute pictures and babies. Your favorite retiree gets sick and you watch their bodies fail them. That mom you were so excited to have babies from? She had complications and you lost her and her litter. That tiny baby who isn’t growing? He’s a failure to thrive and will never be able to process nutrients correctly. Mom had 18 babies? Unfortunately she will never be able to feed them all. That buck you were growing out for months? He’s displaying hormonal aggression now. I wish breeding was easy, I wish it was all cute babies. But it isn’t, and breeders have hard decisions to make to better their lines and provide those amazing pets you see cute videos of. Not every animal is cut out to be a breeder, not every animal is stable enough to be placed into a pet home, not every animal will be able to live a healthy, happy life. It’s up to breeders to put in years of research to understand their animals, to make the decisions that will keep them healthy, to be the selection pressure on their animals instead of just making willy-nilly pairings with no regard to how it will turn out or how it will help better the species. It’s up to us to make sure our animals are safe with people, and that those people are safe with our animals! We put in hours of work every day, months of planning, and years of research to make sure we’re making a positive contribution to the species. Then you have people, who have no clue about breeding, come onto your posts with generalized, uninformed statements about how cruel you are. About how “they don’t get how..”. Well no, no they don’t get it. They haven’t put in the years of research. They haven’t had the first-hand experiences. They haven’t had to face the decisions that we have. They haven’t known the heartbreak behind every line of healthy, well-tempered pets. It isn’t easy, it’s not for people who aren’t willing to put in the endless work. And we as breeders? We just wish people would stop bashing us while enjoying the benefits that have come from hundreds of years of breeding.
Billy (Bandaras x Pomeroy) acted like a true gentleman for his first photo shoot.
Breeding horses always has its ups and downs however when you have a healthy foal on the ground...it sure makes the whole process worth it!
