Both me and my husband are both keen to look into breeding our thoroughbred mare. She is one in a million for a thoroughbred and would love to carry that sweet, gentle quiet gene through to a foal. Her abilities as a dressage horse also makes me want to get offspring from her.
My biggest concern is that she is already nearly 14 and has not yet had a foal. I am planning on showing her for the next year or so. Will she be too old by that time for a first foal??
If not, what should I put her under? The obvious choice would be a thoroughbred but I am not planning on selling the foal so I was thinking about possibly crossing. There is a stunning arab stallion available the would be ideal. There is also a nice quarter horse with very desirable attributes.
