Breeding a maiden mare that you love is always a very difficult decision. There is no right or wrong, and it sounds like you know the risks. We had always wanted to breed one of our trail mares, but we were also concerned with the risk of losing a well trained horse. We decided to buy the dam of one of our mares (a proven broodmare) and breed her instead of risking one of our good trail horses.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
