If the mare isn't registered in YOUR name, you can't register the foal..Also want to point out that when/if you do get the mare's papers you will want to have her DNA tested to make sure they even ARE her papers. If you breed her, they'll want to have DNA from the dam and sire when you register the foal...If the mare isn't who you think she're stuck.

Oh gosh. Don't encourage me! I have a very specific goal in mind now, so I have to stop getting starry eyed over all the pretty ones. Gotta get these training goals accomplished.

I HAVE indulged in a foal crop next year, though. ^_^

I got her from a roper, who got her and her sister as 2 y/os. He knew nothing about her papers, gave me the contact info to the couple that he bought them from as 2y/os. That is who I've been in contact with about them and they have her papers, just a matter of figuring out where they are house/barn/storage/etc. Turns out I am friends with a relative of theirs, who also remembers het to have a nice set of papers. Whether that is true or not, we shall see.

Thank you Yes this is why I've been holding back and currently just looking and getting ideas SOLELY based on how their build/mentality (hot, lazy, athletic, etc) would cross on eachother. When I get her papers, like you said IF they are what they are said to be, I can already have some ideas and some knocked out of the way. I guess just a curiostity thing? And seeing other suggestions way way way ahead of time.

1) has your mare foaled before? If not she is getting a bit old for a first foal.
2) she is pretty mare and he is a pretty stallion.
3) what do any of his foals look like ? And most importantly
What are the basic temperments of each horse? Willing? Stubborn ?
I read that you would not breed until you got her papers , which is good, but there are MANY papered two year olds for sale online, in auctions, etc.
You may want to go look first, you can go to online sites and some have bloodline searches. You may come across the deal of a lifetime and not have to breed

I have just one question:

If you breed and get a foal, and that foal turns out to fizzle when it comes to barrels, what then?
As long as you plan for every scenario, and have a home for that foal no matter what the circumstances, I don't see why you shouldn't go ahead and breed your mare.
You don't sound like a backyard breeder or an idiot. People are pretty sensitive about "Should I breed/Who should I breed to" threads because many of them are started by folks who have no idea what they're doing.

Don't let that deter you. If you would prefer to breed and raise a foal rather than purchase one, do so. Do so responsibly... and you will be fine.
I can't really weigh in on a stallion, I'll leave that to others.
Also, your mare is stunning!

Arrowsaway that's the problem though. You can't garuntee a foal would have a "forever" home with you. Things happen.

I didn't say with her necessarily.
I just said a home.

I have a bigger problem with farms that churn out a dozen babies a year when the market is in the crapper. This person wants one foal. As I said before, as long as she plans for every scenario, to the best of her ability, then why not? It's her horse and she can do with it as she sees fit. All we can do is give her advice and hopefully she will act responsibly.

If the Op takes the time to train and care for the horse, until it is sold if it ever has to be, that is as responsible as anyone can be.
Just because you buy a barrel prospect doesn't mean they will be any good at it. She might as well breed her own mare if she wants to take the time and money it will take to do that.
It is her responsibility alone and therefore the OP's decision. Good luck Shalom
