I have to say I agree with Texasgal ^^. I've personally seen/met DBA's mares and they are very well cared for, are in great condition, great momma's and love their owner! As for the nutritional aspect, I will leave that to someone more qualified than myself.

If your mare is maintaining weight & health and producing healthy foals which are marketable/fit your program, I'd have no qualms breeding yearly.

I've worked with 3 large scale breeding programs over the years (Standardbred racers, Paint halter horses, QH reiners,) and none had scheduled downtime for any healthy broodmare, since foaling is their job. Sounds like you have lucky mares, DB!
