We got 2 broodmares this past April, 1 was 11 and had a 5 month old filly at her side and the other was 3 and due to foal any day.
After the 3 year old had the colt, the difference in how these 2 mares mothered their foals were huge. I'm glad the older mare was there to help the younger one, she was just too young mentally to take care of her colt. She actually left him in the pasture twice, we had to go find him, he was sleeping, she left him to go eat her grain!
I may not know much and am fairly new to this, but 3 is way too young to breed!
