I am closing this thread. No one is being helpful any longer, and I will do what I want, when I want with my mare, thanks very much. If I don't find a suitable stallion, guess what? I won't breed my horse! NO WAY REALLY? Yes, really. No thanks for your help as I think it was a ratio of 20% help to 80% rubbish. I won't be posting on here my specific questions; I'd much rather get help from people who aren't going to be nasty about it and tell me I'm wrong and I'm this and that and I shouldn't breed cause your assuming my horse is some messed up badly conformed freak when she is most definitely not, unless you want to argue with people who know what they are talking about when it comes to Thoroughbreds. I will, however, thank Kayty.
