    I also have to agree with endiku, over the summer I worked at a vetrinary clinic specializing in reproduction and I was shocked to find out how much can go wrong. Proper care during pregnancy is VERY important, honestly its a wonder horses give birth at all haha. The amount of infected mares that came through the clinic was astounding

    I have been quite as well but because sometimes its easier not to reply to post were it is obvious that they don't care about what is best for the horse, all they care about is what they want. I am sorry if this considered rude by the mods but enough is enough.

    Rodeoqueen77 - To be honest with you, your mare isn't well-built at all. And I don't have power over what you do, but I would strongly recommend not doing hard riding on her, like barrels or poles.

    I work at a horse rescue, and we had an older horse come in that had a long back and wasn't well-rounded. He'd been ridden in his younger days, and guess what happened? He got extreme sway-back to the point where I hurt for him. And so many horses come into our rescue that have poor conformation because of careless breeding.

    If you truly do have 43 horses on your ranch, why not ride or breed another horse? I'm sorry, but it's ignorant to have the foal suffer the same poor conformation and future back pain - just because you want a foal.
    Just my honest opinion.

    But wait, don't forget this is a $50,000 barrel horse we are talking about. Of course, her foal will be worth the same amount I am sure. I feel sorry for the mare and the future foal, not a good life to live.
    I am surprised if you watch the videos posted on this same area about " my gymkana" she rode this mare in about 5 or 6 different "classes", then talks about how she needs to get her into shape because of an injury.
    When she was talking about how much this horse is worth, and the various reasons, including I think 15 second barrel runs, it was funny to watch the videos and if you time them from the video timer, this mare is running 20 and over barrel patterns.
    Poor mare, poor foal.

    I think that since the OP has not come back to this thread that she has heard what she can and will, and enough of the "you should not breed this mare" opinion has been expressed. Not sure what value there is to leaving it open any longer. Going to close 'er.
