Not to be rude, but your last sentence scares me a little. You say you'd rather not breed than spend a lot of money on this "little project". Breeding ANY animal is not a little project. If you don't have everything worked out before hand, and have the money set aside in the event of an emergency, maybe it's best you don't breed your mare. Your desired end result is a happy and healthy mom and baby, and without the proper finances and facilities to do that, it's probably best not to.

I think she meant little as in the size of the stud! Not the size or importance of the mission.

Sorry I meant that I have no desire to shell out the same amount of money to breed to this stud as I would if I just paid the stud fee and got some shipped pony semen from a more recognized stud as I can AI myself. I didn't mean that I didn't want to pay for the pregnancy and the baby I just meant that I didn't want to shell out a lot of money for that particular stud but he's got good conformation and a good personality and I wouldn't mind breeding to him if I didn't have to pay a stud and booking fee, plus the expense of the AI kit etc. Hope that clears everything up.

My professor's donkey covered his 17 + HH hanovarian mare. I only wish I had been there to see it, no one knows how it happened but 11.5 months later out popped a tiny little warmblood mule, SURPRISE!!

They're pretty adapt little animals. Shay-la owned a 13hh Welsh stud and he had zero problems covering every one of her mares, from 14 - 15hh.

Elaine bred one of her 16hh+ Warmblood mares to a little Welsh stud, and they actually used the barn. Elaine had an additional section built on her barn, and it was a dirt aisle. They actually dug a trench for the mare to stand in, while the stud remained on the cement aisle of the old barn and he managed just fine!

The foal got big though His name is Pik Sun and I'm darn sure he's close to 16hh himself now! Third horse down:

I'm going sunday to look at the stud again. I will take tons of pictures!! He's more welsh cob style and my mare is more dainty TB so I definitely think he will add some substance to her whether they throw ponies or small horses. The market for well conformed youngsters is up and I have had people beg me to breed her and then they'd take the youngster off my hands. So I'm definitely considering this!! I will keep you posted.

With all the unwanted horses in this world, you're going to breed a mare that has a nasty temperament with a backyard stud pulled from auction. Doesn't that kinda make "rescuing" the stud from auction a mute point? The market for large ponies is not good around here at all. There are $35,000 large ponies with a mile-long show record and papers going for under $10,000.

I have to agree...sorry OP....there are so many people giving away great horses for practically nothing you could probably buy a foal for a lot cheaper....neither sire nor dam have a show record that you have mentioned and it would just make another cross breed (not saying there is anything wrong with grades...just there are already so many good ones needing homes....)
