    Breeding a maiden any further down the road

    This is kind of a silly question as it's been answered probbly billions of times. With my mare turning 13 this year and being bred in march, would I be better off being at foal heat so long she's ok through pregnancy and foaling? But then if I breed her on foal heat, being 15, that would make her due january. Now with that being said, would I be able to gve her the year off and start of the following year without breeding problems? She's currently a maiden. I wanted her to keep her figure as far as no sway back as I still want to keep showing her through the breaks, but is it safe to give her a couple breaks being a maiden right now? Meaning get two foals then give her a year off then breed the next year?

    If everything goes well with the first two, I see no reason for there being additional problems if you give her a year off. Best to check with a vet for breeding soundness before each breeding though

    Nothing updated. Just a show picture from a few years ago.

    There's some pictures on there. It was taking too long to load up :)

    We're getting into the breeding business. The first one is for me, my show baby, the second is to advertise our stallion. We would of bred her to our boy but I won an unexpected breeding in the auction. :) She's the only mare I have right now and I believe she'll be a great mom as well.

    Hm. What does your stallion have to offer? Have any pictures of him? I'm confused :\

    How are you confused?

    I do have some, but they do him absolutely no justice. This was taken at an AQHA show. We're also getting our stud back into the show pen to promote him here in Indiana. He's a proven producer already. These aren't by any mean stud pictures.

    We're standing downhill in this picture(up)

    I've got to get him fit and get much better pictures. These were just our album pictures and this is his first show in 11 years.

    As far as offering, he's an excellent producer with Futurity Champions, Regional Experience Champions, Circuit Champions, AQHA & NSBA Money and Point Earners. The also ride in many different events too. He has a small show record.We've only had him since 2010 so we didn't decide his 2 ad 3 yr old year, but he's a futurity champion himself. He's got an awesome temperment for a stallion, not studish, but he knows when it's appropriate. Very smart, great mover, has a great pedigree, an easy rider for a novice. He doesn't have any vices either.
    His sire, Radical Rodder, is a multple world champion and producer of congress champions.
    His dam, Oh Me Too, was a successful broodmare.
    His full sister is a very succesful show mare. I'd have to look her up for her name and all the accomplishments.
