why breed when you can go online and for $150 buy a foal because "we have to many horses and this one HAS to go>"
Just like the cat and dog population, lets keep breeding our cute little critters to another cute little critter just because they both have such wonderful coloring and we'd love to see what they could produce. Oh yeah then when can call it a NEW breed (like the dog people do, Labordoodles, yorkie poo's, etc) and try to sell them for $3000. :roll:
So, I will never breed because there is just to many horses out there looking for a forever home and with the market prices today its cheaper to go and buy a nice riding horse.

This is a 15-20 year old mare, and she will NEVER be bred!

I will never breed my mare :) Why? Well not because she has bad conformation or any issues, and NOT because of her personality which is awesome...but because she came from a place where she was neglected and starved and used as a broodmare and I never want her to have to go through that again!

Hoofprints: That's an excellent reason. Poor girl- she's beautiful though.

She's a cute little mare tho!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I will never breed either of my girls.

Sonya
4 yr old 14.2-3 Appy/Welsh (I think)

Why?
Number one reason is simply because she is a grade. I don't believe in breeding grades. Another reason is because she got pregnant when she was 3, which was too young IMO. She also ripped while foaling, and would most likely rip again if she were to foal again, and I don't want her to go through that pain again. I also don't want her training to be set back farther. I was planning on showing her this year, but couldn't because she had a baby, and was out of shape when weaned. She has ok conformation, but is definately not even close to what I call breed quality. I think she is absolutely the cutest horse I have ever seen, but you don't breed for cute, just like you don't breed for colour.








Rumour
5 month old 12.2-ish (and growing) clyde/welsh/appy

Why?
Again, because she is a grade. She will not have perfect conformation, I can already tell you that. She is a tad sickle hocked, and her chest is growing out to be like her daddy's, which sticks way too far out. She is going to be a nice mare, but I want her to be my show mount, not a broodmare. If I want a foal, I'll go out and buy a weanling, or a breeding quality mare. Not breed whichever mare I have laying around.







Also, I do not have the funds, or the facilities for another foal, considering I board.

thanks...you should see her filly...beautiful palomino with white socks and a blaze :) but my girl has had enough breeding for one lifetime and I think she much prefers her life now of exciting shows and cross country courses and being pampered by me ;)

I also remebered another reason why I will never breed my girls... I am just plain scared. They are my daughters. I have had Sonya for almost 3 years, since she was a yearling, and Rumour since she was born.
I was watching Unstable (horsie show in CMT) and the mare foaled and the foal died, and I started balling my eyes out, not because the foal died, but because that could have happened to me, and my foal is already born! I know that can't happen, but I just kept imagining that happening, or Sonya dieing. I was terrified when Sonya was foaling. I just wanted Sonya to pull through it. I kept checking her, making sure she was ok.

That alone has scared me away from breeding these two. I may get a breeding quality mare that I don't feel so connected with, and breed her, but I don't know.. What I do know is that I am not breeding my girls, EVER!
