Hello, I have been thinking about breeding my paint mare to a warmblood stallion. This foal would then be my second horse. I have not ruled out buying another horse or adopting. I have plenty of time to consider my options because I am waiting until I graduate college to have a second horse (I am an adult student going back to school). I am in search of any knowledgeable people who would like to share any information they have.
I know that some stallions only breed to approved mares, is it necessary to have my mare approved? Any information along these lines would be helpful. I would also consider other stallions, not just warmbloods.
My mare is a 5 year old sorrel tobiano, one blue eye one partial blue eye. She is approximately 15 hands. Her sire is a paint, her dam is a quarter horse with bloodlines from Zippo Pine Bar. If I decided to breed her, her age would approximately be around 7 or 8. We are currently training dressage.
Again, I am just looking for general information about this topic and have time to consider all my options. If I did breed her I would keep the foal. I am not looking to the sell the foal. Thank you for any information.
