Anyway, when I am browsing through the for sale ads, there are mares that are brood mares.
I know what they are, mares that have foals, but why would you breed a horse that has not proven it self in any other way, except to be a great mum or throughs great colours?
There was one horse, 12 year old never been broken and people were trying to sell as a brood mare because she had already had a foal.
Why would you waste a perfectly good horse just because you can't be bothered training it?
Sorry I am just really confused by the whole brood mare concept
