My pony has beautiful conformation and stellar bloodlines, but I love her too much to risk breeding her. I would never forgive myself if something happened to her.
Plus, there's no guaranteeing that just because you love your mare, you'll get on with her foal like two peas in a pod. They can be fickle buggers, no telling what their personality OR their conformation will turn out like.
There's so many wonderful horses out there that need a home... where do they go if you just make yourself a new one?
It's your choice, just think it over slowly and carefully.
