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.
