Your mare is nice, and I like the studs (especially the first one), but I'm with Dunsjump on this. As much as you like your mare, she hasn't done anything notable (you haven't even ridden her) and she's not registered, which means that the resulting foal would be next to worthless in the general marketplace if you had to sell (things happen). You can easily get a weanling in this economy for dirt cheap, so unless you're set on having a baby out of your mare, it would be great to consider that. Why add to the pile when you can save a horse already here from ending up in a Mexican slaughterhouse? I'm not trying to be mean or discourage you from breeding, but I do want to state things in bald truth. If you do decide to breed, make sure you know both the sire and dam's status as far as HYPP, OWLS, and HERDA.
Peace, Love, and Ponies of all shapes and sizes.
