OP do you realise what it really takes to bring a foal into the world? What breed is your mare? Has she been looked at by a vet and deemed breeding sound? Has she been tested for any possible diseases that could be passed on? Are you capable of affording the vet bill should something go wrong? Do you have a vet or a few vets lined up? Etc... there is eay more then just putting a mare and a stud together so much can go wrong.
Please please think this through do not just breed because you want to see it happen. If that's the case volunteer at a rescue or breeders.

Breed if you have the knowledge, time, resources, and money.
We study sexual education in school at 17 but that doesn't mean we are capable of caring for a child.

So is your mare a haflinger as well? If not why not choose a stud that is her breed.

Honestly you do not sound educated enough( especially being 17, I am 17 as well) to be able to properly handle and afford a pregnant mare and foal. It is not all flowers and rainbows. Of you have never handled/ trained a foal or dealt witg a protective mare you could be seriously injured and havw one seriously unrulely baby.
Also please spell check your posts it can be quite difficult for people especially if their first language isn't even english.

I don't know... the latest fad seems to be having babies at 15 and 16. So 17 is kind of late. You are so behind the times!

Seriously... I recently heard from my friend about this 15 year old girl who had to find someone to lease her horse because she was having a baby. If I was pregnant at 15 I wouldn't have a horse to lease... heck id be lucky if I saw the light of day again before I was 20.

I've never been one for fads. LOL.
I love my nephews but I couldn't imagine having a kid now, let alone that young.
Having a uterus doesn't mean reproduction, human or horse!
