As per any repro vet you speak with, a broodmare's job is to have foals and if they need a year off, they will tell you very very clearly by simply not GETTING in foal and it will be that simple


Believe me - if this mare's health or well being was EVER compromised by being in foal, she wouldnt BE in foal. Period ...
That's too bad about the sale. But, about the repeated foalings....For humans, at least, while we are capable of having pregnancy after pregnancy it does put extra stress on the body. For humans, there is more risk of fetal death after the third baby or so. I am a nurse and do have a Zoology degree. I think reproductive vets are geared towards needs of those who want foals. I'm not sure they're geared towards needs of horses.

IMO, Female bodies need breaks even when we are able to get pregnant.

Well I am waiting very anxiously for this clyde cross foal.... be sure to post pictures, especially for me =]
Does this mare have the budweiser look?
What are the possible colors the foal would be if my mare was bred to him? (I'm not good at the whole color gene thing)
I saw that most of the foals bred to a dark mare turned out a light palomino.

Not per any repro vet. Maybe yours, but not all. My friend who breeds was advised by hers to give her mares a year off. Ideally every other year, but breed no more than 2 years in a row before giving them a break.

Then the breeder I got my haflinger from also gives her mares time off as well. I don't breed, so I just go by what these guy tell me & what they do. Just curious.

Anxiously waiting for our Thoroughbred maiden mare, Warrego, to go in season so she can be bred to Tomahawk (son of Seattle Slew)

This is our first time breeding, sooo much vet checking! I have learned soo much in a short time. But it looks like our mare is being finnicky about not having nice weather. Hopefully this month as last month didnt work out.

Reading the book 'Blessed Are the Broodmares', vet told me its a great book to get all paranoid about.....

Anyways, very excited and if all goes well should have a foal next year!

SpringWolf - is this going to be a race baby??? I would think so with Tomahawk as the sire ...

Are you going to keep it to race yourself or put it through the sales?

I bred my race mare to Alumni Hall last year and got a lovely colt in April. I am still debating whether he will go through the Woodbine or Keeneland sales in 2010 or we'll hang onto him ourselves to race ...

Good luck - hope your mare co-operates soon! We are SO fortunate to have the 2 stallions here. They let us know when the mares are ready to breed and the constant stimulus gets them cycling as well sooner than if the mares were on their own without a stallion in residence

yes it is a race baby, first one...and first foal ever! We studied stallions ALL winter long. And learning everything we possibly could!

We had it narrowed down to Alumni Hall, Weather Warning, Sky Conqueror and Tomahawk. I really liked Sky Conqueror, thought he would be an awesome match for our mare, the only thing that held us back was he had no foals...and then it turned out they pulled him from stud and back into racing. So that decision was easy. So lots more discussion....and it turned out to be Tomahawk.

She's booked to go as soon as she's ready. We are doing a trailer breeding, so our vet is keeping a close eye on her....lol good way to see the vet A LOT (which turned out to be a good thing as I had a horse choke and he was already on his way as he was checking the mare)!! She had a hotshot last month, but it didnt do much good....was progressing really slowly. I had a stallion on the property, we even used to tease her, she didnt care...lol But I just gelded him a month ago as I didnt have a use for him to be a stallion anymore due to getting into the race horses. I hadnt even bred him anyways (he is a purebred Arabian). He's my special riding horse...my baby. She actually seems to prefer this other mare in her paddock.....they are ALWAYS fooling around.....dirty girls!! Lol

We are not keeping the foal, once its a yearling it's being consigned to Hill and Dale farms and then off to Woodbine auction.....cause as it is right now, we are 'nobodies' in the horse racing world. Hoping to change that tho!

Have you ever raced your own babies before?? I was told not to get into that aspect unless I had tons of money to burn....lol But I guess sometimes it could be tempting.....

Good luck to you!!

Oh good luck getting her in foal to Tomahawk! One day if we talk, I'll tell you a story about Tomahawk ... its not for the public boards ...

I guess I will see how this colt of mine develops, what the market and economy is like and how his half brother is doing with Steve Asmussen down in the States racing (he actually runs again today) and then debate whether he stays and we run him or he goes. We've run a few in the past with very modest success, but always claimers - nothing we bred ourselves and if he DID stay, I have enough contacts that I get could him broke and going and galloping myself without relying on paying $100.00++ a day in "training fees" to get him fitted up

Hope that your mare co-operates soon, but with this ****ed freezing weather (and might there REALLY be snow on Monday??? ) its playing havoc with the mare's cycles for sure ...

Counting customers mares we'll be breeding about 15 to our stallions www.countylinefarm.net. I'm also breeding one mare to the reining stallion Jacs Electric Spark and my wife is breeding her halter mares to Meet Me Downtown and Champage Cadillac. If you google those studs their sites should come up.
