    Foal
    Question Finding a good stally...

    I want to breed my Shetland/Mini pony. I kind of want a taller one but would it hurt her? Otherwise I'll breed her to a mini with some color and sell the foal. What breed would be a little taller but won't harm her?

    What, exactly, is the point in breeding her? So you can spend hundreds of dollars on stud fees, vet bills, and food only to get $50 for a foal nobody wants?

    Foal
    I bred my mare with a stailiom 2 hands bigger then her and she had no problem with him and recieved no problems. Is your shetland mini registered if you breed it with another mini that is registered it will proebebly be worth more. For teh stailion it depends on his build and size. You don't want a heavy pony on her if she small or anything that is well endowed as it can do damge my firend staillion was big and he damged her mare internally. Could always do AI if you worried about her being covered naturally. Maybe do some resaerch on breeds that would be suitable search studs and see some stailions. Remember breeding is not cheap you have to play for stud or ai. Not all breeders will give your fee back if she does concieve a foal. Also have to ask why breed if it is for yourself or to sell depending on bloodlines of the parents the foal will not sell for much.

    Look for studs that are good at what you want the foal to be good at. If he has won driving, or in halter, baby has a better chance of being good too. Look at the conformation faults your mare has and find a stud that is strong in the areas she's weak in. Make sure he has a good temperament too.

    Sad but true - everyone like the romance of breeding but it is money drainer. Unless you are breeding for a very specific horse for yourself, don't do it. There was a lot of breeding and now folks are forced to give away their stock away to survive.

    And I don't know why people can't just answer other people's questions.

    If she wants to breed for color, then dang it, let her.

    Sure, I mean we can't stop her...
    But we can tell her what we've learned the hard way so she doesn't have to. Helping her.
