Im not from America so our economy is nowhere near yours horses are selling decently enough here and I am not looking at breeding for anohter season maybe 2 depending on stallion quality.
We have bred before I stated that so we have all the night cameras extra extra large breeding sheds and 24 hour vets on standby so not sure where you are getting your information from. Its HER first time breeding, I like a longer back in a maiden after dealing with short backed ponies and horse I find they carry easier when they are longer.
Her weight goes down in competition season die to the fact that she only picks at her hard feed as she is in a full 25acre pasture 24-7 however she is in good health throughout the season,
The pictures where she is larger are when she gets her 2month holiday every year she piles the pounds on. She is a naturally small weight carrying horse she has never been "fat" per say the vet has looked at her nad her feeding and said everything is in the right order basically.
I am essentially breeding for an eventer myself and not planning on selling the foal though I know situations change I am sure I know of at least 5families who would definitely buy from her as an exceptional hunter and eventer.
The stallion I currently have in mind is 16.2hh 10 year old Irish sport horse out of Clover hill his stud fee is highly reasonable I am also looking at a lux z off spring
To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable
