Your new thoughts show a lot of maturity-so glad you had this breakthrough. Yes, buy the horse you want ready to go, it's really much more cost-effective, & you can shop for the color, sex, size you want, among other things. Yes, we'd like to see more foal pictures!

I had to look the MFTHBA. They closed the stud book in 1983.

Sounds solid to me.

Thanks for the invitation.

lol! The $2000 stud fee made my eyes pop out of my head. The fox trotter stud I love only has a $650 stud fee! And he is one of the more expensive ones! Oi if you love the blue roan...

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~

In the long run, even if your mare was breeding stock worthy, it is still more cost effective to buy the horse you want, especially as a weanling or yearling. In most cases, not all mind you. Let the breeder take the risks & have the worries, they have the experience & know how, the rest of us are limited, and so many things could go wrong starting with just getting the mare settled & in foal. Even that could run some serious coin & the foal isn't even a glimmer in the stud's eye yet! You made a very wise & responsible decision, I admire you for that.

I wish more people looked at breeding this way.
We've taken on 4 rescues in the past 5 years, and we aren't even in the rescue business.
There are so many unwanted horses out there.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
