I agree with the people who breed a mare(or stallion) because she's no good for anything else.
If the horse has:
1)a mystery or conformation related lameness
2)a terrible temperment
4)a huge conformational defect affecting functionality
It should not be bred. PERIOD.
Yes, that means the mare that's perma lame for no diagnosable reason, the miserable b**** that has the "beware of horse" sign on her corral gate, the loopy mare you've always suspected of being a few bricks short of a full load and the hammer headed, splay footed, roach backed nag are banished from the breeding shed. Not even the award winning stallion down the road can save those genetics.
