I have researched for years for this year and am excited I will finally be able to do it though there are a few costs I have not been able to come by while searching. I have no intentions of selling this foal whatsoever. My intentions are to eventually do some Eventing on him or her. I want to get a foal or two before she gets to an age that I won't feel safe about breeding her and I don't want to do it back to back either.
My questions are about the costs of the check up that happens the day after foaling and to see if there are any other costs that I need to look into other than the the ones I already know about.
Costs I know about:
-Coggins, Pre-breeding Shots/Dewormer/Hoof Trimming
-Gestation Supplements/Shots(Months 3, 5, 7, 9, and 10)/Dewormer/Hoof Trimming
-Foal shots(Months 6, 7, and 12)/ Dewormer/Hoof Trimming
Is there anything else I'll need to pay for if it is a normal Gestation/Foaling? I will be setting money aside for if other problems occur.
My mare is a beautiful half- Quarter Horse lady with loads of Stamina, speed, strength, sense, and will that is truly the type of horse I would like to continue experiencing, even partially, long after she is gone. I have my reasons to breed her, and I do know that breeding any horse for Sentimental reasons isn't right. This is not what I am doing though it is part of what pushes me forward. Attached is a picture of my lovely girl in a confirmation pose. Stallion I'll be breeding her to is a Registered APHA Overo Stallion.
Comments on her Conformation are Welcome. :) Thank you!
WARNING: Please keep to answering the question. I'd prefer any overly negative opinions to be witheld as it can get me worked up and things can get pretty nasty pretty quickly. Thank you.
