To me that's a "just because" reason- it's a "good deal" not thought out enough. To breed with a set purpose in mind is one thng, to breed because of a deal on the unridable broodmare with a breeding to this stud is another. I don't think that in this case the broodmare should be bought or any other horse bought or bred.

What would you do with the foal? That's a very important question when it comes to breeding.

ETA: life changes, and you never know if you'll end up having to sell the foal. You said there are no colts near you, are you hoping to get a colt in breeding and not a filly?

umm Banman.... "he is a reining horse, not shown yet do to lack of time and too many horses at the moment but he will be shown this year" equals unproven

I'm not being rude...I stated the obvious.

The stud you want to breed to is unproven..He hasn't even started his career, much less won anything...And pretty isn't anything, it's a plus but it doesn't mean you'll have a nice foal, or even that it will be pretty.

Then don't breed. Go out and look for a nicely bred foal you can buy. Not just breed to get a mediocre foal because you want a cutefoal experience. That's just selfish....and you don't know that you'll be able to keep the foal it's entire life....You're already taking horses to the sale so you can buy more. You could get the mare, breed her, and die a few weeks into her pregnancy. What happens then? What if you end up not liking the foal? Are you just going to drop it at the auction for a kill buyer to pick up too?

How can you even say that? Again you obviously have no problem trading out your old horses to bring in new ones... how will this foal be any different when it gets older? And again I will say.. their is a difference between breeding & selling as a buisness compared to breeding & selling because you can.

if your set on having 'the foal experience' why don't you , instead of breeding your grade, buying a mare with the sole purpose of breeding it, do what some of the others here have done , and rescue a mare already in foal?? There are many around, or many horribly cheap and in a bad space that will go to the knackers yard .

Surely that is a better option if you are set on having a foal . There was even someone here fairly recently I think that bought/rescued a mare with pretty decent bloodlines for what they wanted (or so I understand , I have little knowledge of bloodlines as they mean nothing to me).


Isnt to say I agree with the predicament at all , was just a suggestion that might be a better option for all involved?

Scoope, I think you might be thinking of Ladybug2001 and her mare, Lena, that recently foaled? She did rescue her pregnant. I think that's a great idea. Saving lives instead of creating new ones.
