Question Wanting to Breed 15 yr old Arabian Mare. Not sure how to go about things...

My mares name is Forever Muscatta. I have her papers tucked away somewhere (just have to find where I "put them where I won't forget" LOL). She has had three foals previously by former owners and did great, but I want to make sure she is not too old to be breeding and how I should go about picking a stud to breed her too.Just found her pedigree online.. here it is... http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/forever+muscatta
Anyway I will post more pictures of her as soon as I get home. I would just like your inputs on if it should be done and so on.. THANKYOU in advance!!!

If she's not maiden, 15 is definitely not to old, but quite honestly I see very little about her I'd be eager to pass on to a foal. She has a nice head, but her conformation is severely lacking in the stability department. Why not buy instead?

I agree with Macabre, she's not too old if she isn't a maiden, heck my friend bred her 20 year old mare as a maiden, and she did wonderful. But I see a very weak top line, pretty straight gaskins, fairly upright pasterns, that I would not want to pass onto a foal, I think that buying a young foal instead may be a better idea. What do you want to do with the foal? What are your goals in having one, is it just for you, do you want to sell it, are you just wanting to breed because you want a foal out of your mare? These are all things to think about. If you do decide to breed, find a stallion with a better top line, shorter back, longer pasterns, more angle to his gaskins, and a bigger butt. Good luck with your hunt.

I think the point of breeding is to improve. So on that note sure she may have some flaws but that just means she needs to find a stallion that's strong in those areas where she's flawed. Not everyone can afford a perfect conformed horse but they can breed to a stallion to get an improved foal. Good luck finding a stallion. :) If you want help I love looking at them! Just let me know what your looking for! Personally I think she sorta looks like an Akhal Teke! Pretty!

I really like her, leggy and lean(then again Im a TB person, probably not an ideal arabian?)

What are you hoping to use the foal for and are you wanting a PB Arabian or are you considering registerable x's like Anglo Arabians and Quarabs?

She said the mare has had THREE previous foals :) I don't like her hind end for some reason...or her neck. I personally wouldn't breed her,but obviously she is your horse and you will do as you please regardless of input. If you do breed her find her a good stud that compliments her faults :) She has a cute face anyway and looks sweet...

I wish they had conformation shots.

I don't know where you're located, or what you want to do with the foal, so I'll post a few different stallions..

I like that one the most so far.

Overall, I like her. With a stronger topline her look would greatly improve. I like the leggy, dainty Arabians versus the smaller, stockier types.

Paired with a more compact stallion, I think she will produce a nice foal.

Are you sure she's pure Arabian?? She's got an uncanny resemblance to an Akhal Teke.... You could breed her to one of those and have a very leggy athlete! :) Hard part would be finding a stallion... The breed is hard to find.

What do you plan on doing with the foal? If I knew I could find you a nice stallion :)

ETA: If she's registered, she is absolutely arab. Also, she has a very arab head. She is very leggy and lean, like a teke. :)
