Oh okay. I thought that your stallion was "Mastercard" and I was like OMG now that is a horse that is justified to reproduce, but then you said something about winning a raffle... Yeah.

He's cute but weak in the back, post-legged, and slightly wasp-waisted. Are you getting in to the breeding business for the profit?

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

Oh, I see where you got confussed. I knew I should of explained that more. Lol

I won Mastercard's breeding throug the auction. I don't ever win the breedings. lol If I didn't win sh wold of been bred to my stallion.

As for his small conformation faults, he out produces himself there. I'm going to go ahead and attach some pictures from my FaceBook page for those interested in seeing them. They are gorgeous and I am proud to own such a great sire.

But yes, I am looking for both profit and the glory of raising my own foals.

Here's a link to my stallion's foals if they're interested.

back to the original question. It depends on the mare. The older they are the better it is to breed them year to year without years off. Some mares done do as well being bred back at an older age if given a year off. I bred my 16 year old maiden mare last year and she took first breeding in february. we are literally waiting for the foal any day.

I'd suggest a breeding soundness exam by a vet. maiden mares that are older can sometimes have their own issue.s
