Ok, so this year I am looking to breed my first foal but there're a few things I'm not to sure about, I was wondering where people keep their mares after they've been served (in a paddock obviously!) but with other mares? Are they able to go in with/next to geldings or will this cause the mare to come into season and loose the foal?
I have a very nice Tb mare that I want to put in foal, she has a wonderful temperament, good breeding/conformation and is great under saddle. The stallion that I have selected is a Stockhorse (and the sire to my current competition horse which is the main reason for going with this stallion). I know a lot of the offspring from this stallion and all are very nice horses (nature and conformation wise).
I am breeding for myself and if all goes well the foal will eventually replace my current horse. My mare is a maiden mare and I understand the complications and risks (I'm a vet nurse) and have a lady up the road who breeds sport horses who is happy to help....so I guess my biggest question at the moment is can I put my mare in with geldings? I have no other mares on the property and she has always lived with these three geldings.
