I have a 10 year old maiden mare that i have decided to breed.
Her past is pretty colorful
She was a race horse, barrel horse, jumping horse, pleasure horse, roping horse and then a barrel horse and trail horse.
I bought her 3 years ago from a roper in Washington. He did well with her but informed me that her previous owners were very abusive to her.
they twitched her ears and beat her face and body. she also may have been roped because she has a nasty rope burn scar on her back fetlock.
I bought her knowing what i was getting into.
She was very headshy and ear shy and would not any man come close to her except that roper. (im a woman so gaining her trust their wasnt too bad.)
She was also terrified to walk through gates (a couple little girls walked her through a bowgate and she got caught up on it (horrible accident)
Anyways, i wanted to give you guys some input on her before you gave your opinion on this stallion i have chosen for her.
Here is a couple pictures of her:

I know it looks weird me breeding my speed horse to a sport horse but i think i would get a really good cross. i plan on doing whatever the offspring is built for and what ever its heart is set out to do.
