What's your budget on this foal? You know that if you breed Slick's Left Print, you are paying $1200 for two tries, plus the cost of hauling to a vet and shots. You can buy a live foal from their farm for $1500.

His stud fee is $600. $250 booking fee included. First shipment if free. Additional shipments are $175. Where are you getting $1200 for two tries?

Slicks Left Prints

Yes there are the costs of vet but "if all goes well" She could very well by under $1000 depending on what her vet charges and how many shipments she may need. She's obviously got her heart set on breeding. Let's leave it at that and try to help as much as possible.

Everyone is jumping and saying "breeding's bad, breeding's bad, buy a foal" Well, ultimately it's not our decision. The best thing we can do is help to make sure that the OP does everything she can do to have a safe and successful breeding.

Oh and, the cheapest foal from their farm from him is $2500.

Foal
Thank you for understanding it more from my side idk where she got those number prices from she needs to do her reaseach before she starts bagging on me and I do rescue and rehabilitate horses so far I have trained and placed 4 horses to have been neglected to new homes one is even being used for a junior rodeo heal horse.

Sorry, I did not see first shipment was free, so I counted the 175 twice. And I wasn't bagging on you, I was being serious and expressing serious concern over the price. And there are TWO horses for sale, one is 1500 and the other is 1800... but they are Patch the Buck babies. Sorry.

And I don't care how many horses you have "rehabbed" or how many horses you have trained - breeding and foaling is an entirely different game. I'm just showing you the cost of breeding vs. buying. It's not a bad thing to be aware of pricing. You can see for yourself in my breeding thread exactly what we're doing and what we're expecting, and that my opinion is valid because, like it or not, I do have a lot of experience in this area, whereas you have not bred a foal before. Please do not criticize me, a simple "Yes, I'm aware of the costs and am willing to take on that financial responsibility" would be polite enough.

ALSO I am just going by what I see on the website:

"Stud Fee: $600
Book now ...$250 per mare
First shipment included (overnight air)
$175.00 each additional shipment
"

I do not see where is says the booking fee is included. I have had mares that have taken on the first try, and I have had mares that took 4 times to catch. You never know exactly how good your vet is, or how quickly you can haul the horse to the vet, and things can become very costly very fast. It comes with part of being a responsible breeder and is something you should be very aware of.

Foal
My budget is 4000 or at least I would like not to go over that. And I think I am deciding on slicks left prints he seems like a good sire for a solid all around horse. How tall do you think the foal would be? Safire my mare is 16.2hh and slicks is 15.2hh Safire was an early bloomer but idk about slicks. I will post a pic of Safire on this Friday.

How you feed the foal in the next year will make a big difference.
