Welcome to the forum!
I looked back at some of your other posts and based on what I've read, I think you are making a huge mistake with that mare. From what I gather, you've never owned or, at least, took care of a horse. You don't have a barn or shelter, and in taking care of a pregnant horse, then her foal, you are going to need one. In fact you should have one in any case even if they don't use it.
Horses are social animals and rarely do well alone so you need a companion. A goat, a pony, or a retired horse will work well but a pregnant horse as your first venture into horse ownership is not a good choice. BTW, don't think of a foal like that as an investment - it is a terrible investment and a certain money looser.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
