When she stops cycling, could be due to age...not cause she is pregnant, are you going to put all that extra supplements/vaccines/feed into her because she hasnt shown a heat cycle? Therefore, she must be pregnant. Right?
So then 11, 12, 14, 16 months from now, you will be back asking why your mare is overdue for her foal and grossly obese due to extra food, and no baby.
When all of that could have been prevented by a simple 75 dollar maximum vet visit to ultrasound her and see if she did infact conceive?
This is why backyard breeders get a bad reputation. Because they do not do the responsible thing and a-not breed and b-get the proper vet care before, during and after breeding.
I have bred 1 foal, im not experienced, but I did every single thing I could and spent hundreds of dollars and thousands of hours of effort to get my foal on the ground and ensure my mare was safe and healthy from before she was ever introduced to the stallion.
Like what was stated in a previous thread of yours, with the same subject of breeding your mare, I wonder if you thrive on the attention/drama that your threads create.
I personally know a lady that I was related to through marriage that lost numerous foals and mares due to irresponsible breeding and improper vet care. Its not pretty. And very easily avoidable.
