NDappy I dont know what tirade you are referring to. MOST mares do foal without complications. Thats an undisputed fact.
It is far more dangerous to ride a horse in any advanced discipline than to breed that mare. One is natural , breeding, one is not riding. Or keeping a horse in a stall for any length of time.
I state my opinion one based on 46 years of horse ownership 30 years of breeding.
I never asked that you agree with it. However when someone continually ask the tired question "are you prepared to......"
Any one so paranoid over losing a foal or so attached to the mare never needs to breed, or ride for that matter.
If you are not financially secure , or IMO own your own property, you should not breed period.
The OP is trying to learn here.
Giving her advice to prevent complications is all well and good. She needs it.
Trying to frighten her into your way of thinking is about control.
Taking offense because someone gives another opinion belies low self esteem. Shalom
