My reasons for breeding are because I help run an EQUINE facility. We raise PERFORMANCE horses. My colts are all trained to high dollar and they either stay with us or are sold to other competitors.
And, just to clarify, I'm merely saying that if something makes you happy you should do it. We've lost money on foals tons of times but I makes me happy to take care of a life and see that little face every morning so we do it anyway. I love putting the saddle on for the first time and taking the first ride on a colt I raised myself, or watching them grow. I still see tons of my baby foals (Well, not so baby anymore) on the show circuit and doing well. I love watching the grow into serious competitors.
And just for the record, there ARE people who have a passion for bowling just like we love the horses. I certainly don't, but someone in my extended family bowls competitively and we have wars. I babble about horses and he flaps his jaw about bowling all the time. To some people it is worth it, just apparantly not to you or me.
And you're right. This is a forum. People should be allowed to post questions witohut being attacked for it.
I respect you all and will always try your advice, btu I am going to speak up if I think you are all being too harsh.
