So she would be bred three times in a row.
1. What is your opinion on this? (Please no fights just your honest opinion)
2. Is this healthy for the mare? The foals?
3. Would you do the same?
Now after reading the above.....and answering the questions would you answer differently if I told you that-
a) She is breeding to a unaccomplished, not shown, champagne paint stud colt that has bad (not terrible but undesirable) conformation. That she has been trying to sell for over year.....unsuccessfully.
b) The mare is 5 or 6 and is not trained except in basics, only ridden for a month or two before being bred the first time.
c) There is not market for her breed and her "rare" color.
d) She has been trying to sell the first foal since it was born, and has failed to find a home for him.
e) She has a total of 4 horses for sale including the stud colt and the first foal.
She breeds for color, not conformation even though she claims to. Yes mom has good conformation, but the stud doesn't. Plus she already has too many horses, shouldn't she try and actually sell her horses and geld her stallion so he will sell quicker?
He is really sweet and he gives it to his foals but he would make a better little show gelding for a little girl (or boy) than a stallion who no one wants.
And most importantly.....is breeding yearly a good idea on a young mare? (Who may or may not be getting the nutrients she needs! After her first foal she became very skinny and has only recently recovered.)
