I would never breed this horse. Sure, she has a great disposition, but she does absolutely not have the quality conformation that a broodmare should have. Her legs are not something you ever want to pass on. Along with the leg problems already pointed out, for a 1/2 Pench, she has fine boned legs. Again, not something suitable to be passing on.
The horse economy is down the drain and only going to get worse. If you don't have a quality horse to reproduce, don't reproduce. Im a firm believer of not breeding Grade horses unless they are money winning, outstanding horses. Show jumpers, barrel racers, reiners etc.
What has this mare done that would make her a good broodmare besides having a pretty face and is sweet?
I also don't think she looks very proportionate. He face looks very large and drafty, her neck is short and thin. Her hindquarters look weak to me. Stiffles are extremely weak looking. Back is on the longer side.
Also, her hooves look like they need a good trim. They are very...pancakey. Flat and wide.
