A think a lot, but it prob wont be a good stud, unless your very close friend has a great stud and offers a breeding for free because your her closest friend................... so I wouldnt unless I knew how good a stud it is......(and if I had a mare).......... but I still wouldnt breed just to breed.

Why does everyone assume when asking a question about breeding they think that people are going to breed. Plus if I ever did breed, and I mean ever bred it would never be just because I wanted to or to see what the horse would look like or anything stupid like that. I would breed to inhance the breed/abillity of the horse and to have a horse for life.....but I never said I was going to.

She never said you were going to either. You is not YOU in specific.

Good studs will often have discounted breeding sometimes. I've never seen a free breeding to one I'd want to breed to, but I've seen plenty of crappy studs bred for free.

Not very high if the stallion is really worth breeding to, unless you have a personal relationship with the owner.

Usually if someone is worried about how high stud fees are they shouldn't be breeding anyway. I doubt that if you cannot afford the stud fee you can afford all the necessities for the foal.
(and I do not mean you to be a personal you, just a general one)

Its not always cruddy stallions offering free breedings-- Occasionally a good young up-coming stallion (often who has been shown but has not yet been bred) will be advertised with free breed fees to proven, champion or champion producing mares. The stallion owner wants to get his stallion's first foals on the ground, and gives the incentive to the best mares possible so that his stallion's first foals are out of winners/producers.

Free breedings are not always enough--its a risk for mare owners, who can usually breed to their choice of proven relatives of a "new" yet to be proven sire, but lower or free fees can be enticing, plus if the stallion owner is demonstrating a good promotional and advertising pogram for his stallion and his get for the long haul, the mare owner will benefit with more exposure and marketing for the foal.

Here are some free breeding offers from stallions who are not "crappy" IMO--but you need a World or Reserve World Champion mare (or in some cases a producer of a World/reserve World Champion) to get that free breeding

Because you're asking a question about breeding. I think it's a reasonable assumption.

I got the breeding that resulted in my colt for free. My grandma had the nice TB mare and my friend is a really good friend of the guy who owns the stud. He looked at my grandma's mare and thought they'd be a great match so my grandma bred Brego for me. It was the stud's first foal crop and he's by the 2nd leading barrel producing stallion in the country. Sinsious Firewater or something like that is Brego's sire's name (I totally butchered the spelling). He really wants some good barrel horses from his stud on the ground and competing to promote his stallion. My grandma watched him do two barrel runs the other week and he got 17s on both.
