What is going to happen to the foal. Well, it will be majikal. They will have a great bond from the start, she will do all the training herself, and they will be inseparable. She's going to show you guys fo sho.

My suggestion would be to stick where you have support. You will get none here. Since you aren't twelve, I won't sugar coat anything. There is no use defending yourself. People with years of experience breeding and training know the realities of breeding and training and you won't get any support from us.

Its not that she is 11 and has no issues NOW. We are talking about emergency issues that come up.

For heaves sake, can you predict if she is going to slip on the ice while she is really pregnant? Can you predict if she is going to abort the foal? Can you predict if she is going to colic and need emergency colic surgery?

These are all things that NO ONE can know. And these are things that you should be prepared for.

Also are you prepared that she might be pregnant with twins and need to have one pinched off? That is not cheap. And it is very rare for a mare to carry twins to term and deliver them both safely. Which is why you pinch one off.

Okay well is seems like its not worth my time trying to talk some sense into your decision.

I wish you, your mare, and your foal luck in your breeding. I hope everything turns out well.

Simple. Stop replying and don't mention it again for the reason of it not being a good idea to the vast majority of people here. This is a great place. Just don't talk about breeding when you have no idea what you are talking about.

Then act like it. Simple. Its really a shame that I teach lessons to 9 year old kids who are more mature and more well spoken then you are at almost 18.

Not much, unless you can come up with some responses to placate everyone. You haven't given a reason for breeding instead of buying other than you want to be there from day 1. That's not a very good reason, considering all of the other horses and foals in the world who will be sent to slaughter or something unless they are adopted. You are 17, and most 17 year olds (Despite what you are saying) are not financially stable. You are still in school, and quite honestly don't seem mature enough to handle breeding a mare. We don't know the conformation of your mare. Or the stud. And there are TONS of people on here who know the nit and grit of breeding. Like it or not, none of us think you're doing the right thing.
