I agree completely with Smrobs. Breeding should be done very selectively and with purpose. Just because a horse has the reproductive organs, doesn't mean they are good candidates to breed. There are thousands of unwanted grade horses out there as it is, most finding their way onto a kill truck, why on earth would you want to make more?

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

None of the above.

Both of those stallys would make only mediocre geldings. They certainly offer nothing to the gene pool that we can't find in hundreds of other mediocre horses, especially the ones in kill pens.

Done nothing, fugly stallions, and your mare is neither registered nor breeding quality. Truly a match made in hell, unless you're deliberately breeding for the kill pens.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

what is your reasoning behind wanting to breed your mare at all? Once we know that - what is your reasoning in breeding to either of these studs? Just because you're getting it in trade or am I missing something?

Once you answer that - take two steps back from the situation and honestly look at it and rationally determine if this choice is good in any way. If you can't say yes 110% this is the best decision I could make for myself and the horses involved - don't do it.

Just my two cents.

Crimson, I couldn't care less about the human in this equation; it's the potential foal I'm worried about.

The human won't be the one sold down the river because of behavioral problems, euthed because of genetic defects, or sold to slaughter because of crappy training or soundness issues. Unfortunately for the foal, any of those scenarios are possible, especially since the human who's responsible for its birth has no more thought to putting a stallion to her mare other than it's a trade for something else.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Well thank you for nothing.

This is likely the only horse I'll ever have (thanks to my parents) and breeding her will be my greatest joy. And unless I die, the foal will not be sold.

I has hoping for some construtive critisisum telling my whitch stallion would result in the best foal but I see I was wrong.

If you are young enough that you need your parents support to own a horse, that likely means you have a lifetime to find a nice mare to breed in the future. What makes you think that since your parents will only allow you to own one horse they will also pay to support the foal?

Many of the posters who posted here were trying to be constructive by telling you your mare, and those studs, are not breeding quality. Not all were trying to be insulting, just trying to prevent the production of poorly conformed horses when so many out there already need homes.
