    Looking for Daddy!

    I have a Premium Branded Oldenburg mare who has had one previous foal, and I am considering breeding her again. Should I be looking AI, or just at local stallions? Are there many of them out there? I do not show horses- this would largely just be an investment for me- I already have a very eager buyer for the foal.

    Let the buyer pick the stallion, but do a detailed contract.

    Dreamscape Farms is in BC and they have some pretty incredible stallions. You're lucky in that if you stay "local" you still have several great stallions to choose from in BC.

    I would definitely talk to the prospective foal buyer and find out what their thoughts are. For example if they want a jumper you don't want to breed to a dressage stallion. Always breed to the best that you can. If you post a photo of your mare (profile shot standing on level ground with the sun behind you)it would help us to see what areas she needs improvement in her structure to help choose a stallion that will compliment her.
