My question is, she is 9 years old & I am in the position to where I can afford to board another horse, so why would I not breed her & raise a little colt, of filly? Do you have to have the vet involved? Can you not just put them in a field with a stud??
The biggest reason why not would be "That you are new to the world of horses" Your words not mine.
You haven't got any knowledge and you are a novice. From your questions you have no business even considering this. Why not go get some foal that can't find a home and get your baby fix that way. At least you won't be adding to the population of many babies that people like you have bred. Sorry to sound harsh but you really need lots more knowledge on horses in general let alone babies.
