So my first question is, are there any ramifications for her being bred twice so soon? 2 years seems awful young to be bred by my standards. She actually foaled when she was 3 years if that makes a difference, and will be 4 by the time she foals again. Could this potentially have "stunted" her growth?
Also, her owner plans to keep the foal when it's weaned next summer. If I were to come along and buy the mare, would I be expected to leave her there with the owner until she had foaled out and the foal was weaned? Would I take the mare and give the owner the foal back after it was weaned? If I did buy the mare (which is still a big IF), I would want to get her primed for being formally started under saddle pretty soon after foaling/weaning. This would involve lots of ground work, desensitization, etc. I wouldn't want to have to postpone all training until next summer! Should I forget it?
