| || | Why do you want to breed her? Pregnancy is hard on the body. Is she registered? Is the stallion? What is her conformation? The stallion's? Do they compliment each other? Will the baby be registered? Can you afford the extra feed, vet care, foal care, baby training? What happens if she gets ill?

There's an awful lot to consider. I'd not breed a mare unless her form and the sire's form is excellent. There are so many foals and yearlings who are being given away or sold for less than $500. Even if you don't pay for the breeding you'll have more than $500 in the foal.
Breeding is something people should do only after careful consideration.
