    Then go ahead and educate her. In very polite way explain all problems associated with the breeding, such as - horse can die while deliver as well as baby, sometime vet is required (which is $$$), special feed for the preggi (other $$$), foal very likely won't be sold, so she'll have to feed 2 horses (again $$$), etc. Very often people like that understand the language of money VERY well.

    This is what I would do.

    I would be like I wouldn't breed your horse in my opinion. There are so many horses out there without homes and that are going to the slaughter house because people are having trouble affording them in today's economy. If you were to breed your horse there are risks that involved,more vet bills,training,etc. If you were to sell her you won't know what kind of home she may have.

    I like both of these suggestions.

    Foal
    Nobody said to scream at her or tell her she was stupid or selfish. I SAID if a person breeds with no clue as to what they are doing or what they are getting .. or why, they are being very selfish in their act escpecially these days with the economy.

    I say educate her and if she isn't interested in being educated and does decide to go forward with such a breeding then shame on her. Sorry you read more into my post than was there. Maybe if you saw what we see on a very regular basis and rescue from deadly situations you would feel a bit differently.

    Although I did read a post someone put up that did make sense. It was that this woman may not even go forward with breeding as it will be a long while before the filly would be ready to breed anyway. Very true! Hopefully this owner can become better educated about breeding by then and make a better decision.
