I went to see this little 5 year old mare the other day, and she is such a sweetie!
Full of personality, seems well trained to lead, ride and offer her feet, and is quite the puppy dog mare. She was busy nudging my coat pockets and giving me kisses. Just the kind of horse I'm looking for.
I was told she is paint and saddlebred. (her father was a paint and mother was a paint/saddlebred X. )
I'm thinking of getting her, but there is one thing I'm a little concerned about. When she was being born, her mother had to be put down because her uterus tore and she was bleeding to death.
Could this be something that is hereditary? I'm wondering if in a couple years I decide I'd like to breed her, is it possible that she might have the same problem?
