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 shes precious. I cant 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??
the one thing ive learned so far is to trust your vet. ive chosen a lovely arab for my girl and he just became daddy to a beautiful little girl born out of a 17 year old mum. it was her maiden foal and everything went beautifully. you can see that horse and foal in my "ive decided on a stallion thread" in the critique section
