    I am financially set for the rest of my life and there are such things as wills and all the horses go to my mother, already made for the line of work I do and there are alternate inheritors in the family with instructions to never sell, I have no children nor will I ever have any. These horses are my life my kids, and if for any reason they are ever unwanted they go to the next family member so I got there futures planned thanks for the concern though.

    You really have to be careful about what you ask, because you will get truthful answers. I can understand you wanting a piece of your horse, but that's just not a good reason to breed.

    I wish you the absolute best.

    If you really are going to do this, I would contact local horse people. Tack stores etc. They always know of good stallions. Take the pictures with you so they can assist you picking out a good quality stallion.

    Here's hoping the baby is sound. :\

    She may not even stand up for riding after the breeding. That back looks like it might sway too much with the weight of the baby, which may make her unrideable after the birth.

    I give up to. Obviously you refuse to listen to reason, and will do what you want. IMHO you are merely creating a horse for sentimental reasons - and in the process you are ignoring the needs of said horse. Nothing I say will sway you, since you are so blindly stubborn in wanting to go ahead.

    By the way - asking someone in your will to not resell a horse is not legally binding. So no, you can't guarantee it.

    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.

    Like I said she has had babies before they did hurt her then (2 years ago)
    And they wont hurt her now

    Thanks though
