    If you're after warmbloods, look on the Horse Deals website under the stallion tab and it brings up everyone who has advertised their stud. Lots of nice looking boys on there

    Alot of mares throw good foals in there 20's. As long as your TB is good and healthy I see why not. If your not planning on selling the foal I think a TB/Arab cross would be really nice. Just have the vet check your mare and give the okay. I see no reason why not to breed her.

    Foal
    We bred my old qh mare for the first time at 17 yrs old after a vet check to make sure she was healthy enough, she foaled out my now mare who is 13 yrs now..with no problems, and foaled 3 more babies without too much issues and was an incredible milker she could have raised 3 babies at a time with the amount of milk she produced..we always laughed that she was like a milk cow...

    It's not the catching so much as the actual dilivery. But do a vet check to be safe, a wide back end (I don't mean muscles, I mean actual hips) in perportion to her height at what you're looking for. If you're worried, I'd suggest breeding to a stallion that is smaller that her. I would go with the arab. This way the foal will probably be smaller, and you'll get an anglo. It's easy to breed to a local stallion for your first baby too. This way if she doesn't catch, its easy to get her recovered.

    yeah the delivery is what I am most worried about but then im a worry wort at the best of times :) there is no reason she should have troubles but I worry anyways :) and yes, im trying to look at stallions around her height and if they are bigger, im trying to make it only a little bit. And yeah as I've said, she will have vet checks before and around the clock vet attention if needed so im not to worried about that :)

    All the stallions im looking at are within a 2 hour drive. The place where the qh's are have a deal where she stays there until its determined she has caught. I don't want that though so they said if she doesnt take I can take her back. Its a great place and im leaning towards the more refined qh at the moment but I've also been looking at another couple of nice arabs. I still have a few months to decide to im still looking until I find the "one" :)

    Reviving an old thread....


    Im in the same situation with my old girl. She is 20 now, and a maiden, and Im a little worried about her giving birth.
    She is a 14.1hh Aussie stockhorse. She is very strong, fit (well bit podgy atm), healthy and has never had any health issues since we've had her, but she's precious. I can't help but worry.
    She will be going to an arab, which will make for a lovely fine foal, and she will get regular checkups by our vet (including a pre-service check)

    So what do people think about this situation??
