Meet Cheyenne!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
We just got back from picking up the second free horse. I am so in love. She is an 8 year old Quarter Horse. She has been ridden, but not for a couple years. The guy we got her from paid $1,000 for her after he saw her previous owner beat her over the head with a 2X4. She loves women but is slightly skittish with men. She's going to be so much fun to work with, she's so quiet and calm and easy to handle. When we unloaded her here at the house, the wind was blowing really bad and a tarp flew up and made noise right in front of her... she didn't even flinch.

She is beautiful!!! Good luck, she looks like a sweetheart. I miss my two horses, that I had while in high school. I wish could afford a horse now. I love horses. Keep us posted on her progress.

Congratulations on the new beauty!!! I wish I could have a horse - I haven't ridden in about 10 years, and I miss it terribly. It sounds like Cheyenne is very lucky to be with you. Enjoy her!!!

Question - does anyone know if mares ever get spayed? If not, why not? You castrate the stallions/colts so they can't breed.

They do spay mares but it's not as common as gelding the boys.

It's a very expensive operation to surgically sterilize a mare; so most people simply make sure to keep them away from stallions, which isn't too hard if you don't have one!!! Plus, mares only come into season a couple of times a year, too...so it's not like they are extremely prolific, like a cat...

Thanks - always wondered about that and the effect it would have on if she was never bred. Maybe its like people who never have kids - doesn't really affect them unlike a cat/dog that is more prone to cancer if not spayed and never had a litter.
