    Your absolutely right....its quantity and not quality. What was I thinking. That's typical these days.

    He wouldn't be able to afford to keep that many horses, let alone breed them, if he wasn't having success in selling them.

    I beg to differ. I've seen many backyard breeders that manage to breed and sell horses. I won't argue though. If he wants to breed unproven horses at a young age more power to him.

    Although I completely agree that breeding 2 year olds is careless, the OP already stated there's nothing they can do about that - not their mares. I think a breeder has to keep their mares pregnant to make money, but I'd have started by buying older broodmares...hope the breeder can afford possible vet bills having that many maiden mares. I'm assuming these are registered mares, if they're not proven performers, then the breeder must be after bloodlines...

    First, there are very few horses that have problems foaling on thier first foal or tenth foal. Backyard breeders don't have to manage 60 horses. These mares look like better than average quality and if the goal is to produce quality using horses then I would bet that he is very successful. At any rate I hope the OP will post some pictures of the horses when they foal and when they are sale ready.

    Yes I understand it is a breeder that has decided this and I'm sure he's not running 60 horses either. I know of a ranch that breeds high quality quarter horses that doesn't breed their two year olds.

    Its an opinion that he shouldn't be breeding such young horses. That is all. Like I said if he wants to breed unproven young horses more power to him. Even better if he gets good money for them.

    I've seen backyard breeders with 40+ horses.
