Yes, definitely make sure you are well prepared and well educated on it before you do. My mare was not bred intentionally but out of the negligence of the BO. It scared me to death to learn about everything that could go wrong and possibly kill her.
I'm not one of those that will pound you into the ground and say you shouldn't breed unless you have spotless papers on them both and they crap gold nuggets, etc, but it's not something to be taken casually or without a lot of thought and planning. It's definitely been an experience that's for sure! It would have been a lot better if I would have had her on my own property too, that way I could have installed a camera and popped it on mare stare!
