I'm Breeding My Mare! :)

So we were looking around lately for a nice stud to breed my mare to.. Our neighbors mare just had a foal and we were talking about the foal with our neighbors and got to talking about breeding my mare! So my neighbor has a nice smokey buckskin colt, only 2 years old, hasn't been bred yet, that has incredible breeding. My neighbor said he would charge a $350 stud fee for us. We went back to go look at him and he's gorgeous! They call him Mojo, but his papered name is MP Thrifty Driftwood, his sire's MP Thriftwood. (go to Potter Ranch Quarter Horses for more info on his sire, under "stallions")
We're either going to get a shot (forget the name?) from my vet to give to my mare to get her into heat or just put the two together and.. let them figure it out.
I'm really excited! We're planning on doing this pretty soon so my mare can have a late feb/ early march baby!
Of course, pics of my mare, and a pic of Mojo's sire because I don't have any pics of Mojo at the moment, and pics of their new foal for the fun of it xP
(first four are thrifty wood, sorrel mare is mine, and the bay foal who's about 4 days old :) )

imo, it's not the greatest idea to breed your mare to such a young stud...because you don't know what kind of foals he throws, for instance her could give the foal some sort of default as he's so young as you said he's 2yrs old and hasn't breed yet....but this is just MY opinon

The stud's daddy sure is a looker! Your mare is pretty and I don't see any major confo flaws. Good luck with the breeding! Be prepared for lots of questions because some people decide to tell you not to breed and try to make you all for adopting a baby instead but don't listen to them, its your choice if you want a baby or not.
BTW, That baby is ADORABLE!

I agree with Macabre's question... Why?

You seem to only want a foal because your neighbors have one (and sorry to tell you this, but they sound like BYB's)

Has your mare proven herself in the show pen?

And while no she doesn't look like she has major conformation flaws, those aren't conformation shots either - and those are the angles a lot of people use to get mediocre horses looking like decently built equines.

I wasn't looking for you all to critique my mare, I already know she has good conformation. My neighbors are NOT BYBs, they know what they are doing and breeding horses for better performance horses, for roping, team penning, etc.

Thanks icrazyaboutu, it IS my own decision to breed my mare, and I want to go through the experience of it all.

I really don't want to hear everyone else's opinions, because I have my own and you guys aren't going to change it. I have had SO many experienced horse breeders, owners, and trainers tell me that I should breed my mare, so I'm not the only one that thinks I should.

I don't need to explain all of the reasons why I should breed her because I don't care if some of you don't agree with me.

You're on a public forum that is filled to the brim with very knowledgeable people. You're going to hear opinions, and you're most likely going to get critiqued. That's the consequence of posting.

And on the why not - Uhm, have you been to an auction lately?

you were asking what we thought, and I didnt say that you shouldn't breed your mare..i was saying I "I" were picking a stud for my mare it would not be a 2 year old because they aren't fully developed, they haven't proven themselves has performence horses(other than genetics), and you don't know if they will have a foal with any deformities because of his young age. and you don't have an idea of what his foals look like beacause he is so young, as you said he hadn't bred yet, this is an IN MY OWN OPINON!
