I would appreciate any comments on my situation.
I have been approached by a friend that wants a foal out of my mare and from my son's stallion.
My Mare is from good breeding, not great, but is doing very well in the show ring. The Stallion is from a very good bloodline but he is not proven yet. He has just started competing and is doing very well. Beautiful animal and a head turner. Both are running bred.
We had discussed breeding her to him, just not this soon and pretty sure we would keep the foal as we still have her last, now 3 yrs old.
Our families are friends and I would like to keep it that way. He is looking at this as an inexpensive way to own a horse.
Not sure what is customary. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
