Previous owner told me and my boyfriend the wrong age.

Ive seen horses with allergies that have been bred and it not get passed down to the foal, yes there is a chance.

Previous foals were sold for certain reasons.

I am keeping my mare and she will be started on barrels (during summer) but i cant really start right now.(school is big for me right now and having a job)

No im not saying you called me that. Im saying some people are making me feel like that by assuming.

The foal would be used for a trail horse and MAYBE barrel racing.

I have good intentions for the foal and I know what could happen during pregnancy with a horse. I very aware. Even if some people dont think I am. Yall are not perfect and neither am I.

I'm not perfect but I am responsible with my horses and I only do what's best for my horses, not somehing that I want to do just because I can. That's no reason to breed. Period.

Its also not a great idea to start a horse on barrels while pregnant, it's possible but not smart.

I can see that we aren't going to get anywhere with you but I honestly hope you don't breed and if you choose to, by a slim chance, the foal will have a nice life. I hate to think of what can happen to the foal just because someone was selfish and back yard breeding when there are enough of those horses on he market anyway.. it's just breeding for the kill pen.

Be responsible.

What happens if the foal cant be ridden later on? This seems like the only reason for keeping it. My friend has a gelding and they cant even talk about riding him til next year because of nerve damage in his leg and something is wrong with his back. Also, I personally would run away from this... 'stud'.

you can do a simple colour check on google. type in coat colour calculator and you have to type in your mares colour and the stalloins, also if either one has the gene for grey or is greying out. this will give you percentages of what the foals colour will be.
