Oh my. I support everyone's right to breed as they choose, so am not criticizing you, but out of curiosity why did you choose to breed a mare with so many conformation issues?

Do you have the experience or facilities/income for a foal? Just curious, as they are a lot of work.

Your mare looks like a sweet girl, but I agree with what has already been posted: She is not very nicely conformed, and in my opinion, breeding her was a mistake, but like I said, just my opinion. I do hope you found a decent stallion with very good conformation to try balance out your mare.

Do you have a plan for the foal, or is it just a "foals are so very cute and I want one!!" type of breeding? If you have a plan for the foal, I hope you have someone to help you, and if not, then I think keeping it would be a mistake. But if it comes out with conformation like it's dam, you may have a very hard time selling it.

Best of luck.

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

I don't know why you think that hopping from forum to forum is going to get you a different response the mare's injury doesn't surprise me at all considering her conformation, and I hope by a stroke of luck the foal is more conformationally sound than its dam. Had you not already bred this horse, people would suggest you buy a foal already on the ground that can better suit your needs. There are plenty out there. As it stands, I hope you are prepared to provide for this foal even if it doesn't prove capable of meeting your expectations.

Since this is supposed to be a critique about the mare, I'll add my piece. Very long back (may have problems carrying a foal so you should monitor this with your vet), calf knees, sickle hocks, a steep shoulder and a long ewe neck. She also looks a tad wasp waisted in that photo. I know she's been laid up for six months, but I can't see conditioning doing anything to change bone structure. Her build and overall muscling suggests she works a lot on the forehand, which puts a large amount of strain on already weak front legs, however the long back will make it more difficult for this horse to work off her hind end (a slight downhill build - though it may just be the photo - exasperates this). Long term soundness is a huge concern for this horse.

Which comments are ignorant? The ones telling you that the mare, for whom you solicited a conformation critique, has quite honestly awful conformation and that it was irresponsible for a person who wants to produce quality, marketable stock to breed her?
