Is your problem that she is already bred? Looks like a nice mare and foal.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Yes, please explain...

I'm not getting it either. Why poor mare? She looks well cared for.

I think the idea of the mare having a foal at side and being bred again is the big idea.

I think.

But, that's a normal thing. Lots of breeders do it.

I think they are pointing out that not only has she been re-bred for 2010, but they are offering a 2011 breeding in the price too, so the mare will have had 3 foals in as many years. Again, common practice by some breeders, but it can be tough on the mare.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

You don't see many mares that look like that with a baby on their side. She looks really well cared for in my opinion.

Like the others have mentioned, it is a common practice. If she looked horrible and ill kept, then I would take issue. But not with this particular mare.
