Just wanted to let everyone know that I took my mare(Wilma) to the vet this morning! She was very cooperative and did everything she was supposed to :)

After a physical and ultra sound, the vet said that she would NOT be afraid to breed her! She is very healthy, has plenty of spunk, and would produce a wonderful foal.

Go for it! she looks more than capable of carrying a baby and i love her build. I woul say if the vet okays it, your mare is more than healthy and safe enough to carry a foal, and your comforatable with it and willing to put in the money, time,....sleep haha etc then why not.

i think she is gorgeous and not to old to breed. my 2 year old colts dam was in her 30's 2 years ago when she gave birth to him. and would still be alive today if it wasn't for unfortuante care on her owners part. she died about February of this year.
