We're not judging you because you're breeding a grade horse. Yes, that is a bad decision with the current state of the horse world with over population. The biggest concern we have is that you know nothing of your mare's history. Has she or the stallion been tested for frame, HYPP, HERDA, or any other genetic disease? Have you heard of OLWS, HYPP, or HERDA? They are all genetic disease that can kill a foal. THAT is what we are most concerned about with your mare. If she is bred, and she and/or the stallion are a carrier for any of those diseases, there's nothing you can do to prevent the foal from getting it.
