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 I've learned so far is to trust your vet. I've 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
