A question for you.

Hi, my mate wants to put her coloured mare in foal next year but her mum has asked her to try and find a stallion now, she is based in essex. She wants a coloured. Stud fee anything around 500. The horse must be able to be a good shwjumper, must be at least jumping 3ft. Thanks

Foal
Hi

Can you get hold of a copy of Horse Deals magazine? There is always a stallion feature in there, and often a coloured stallion feature.

The stallion guide is really useful!

Bigger Tesco stores and W H Smiths stock Horse Deals. It's a great magazine.

www.horsedeals.co.uk is the website, not sure if the 'stallion feature' is on there though.

Breeding for color is not a good idea. One should breed for conformation. Is this mare registered? Exceptional conformation? Purpose of the foal? Does the mare jump?

You realize that it's going to be more expensive to breed a mare than it would be to purchase a foal, right? Unless you have great experience breeding, training and caring for a foal then this is probably not a good idea.

What will your friend be doing in five years? The foal won't be ridable for five years if you breed next year. Think about all that time and expense. Will your friend be away at college there? Able to afford an unridable horse for five years?

Yeah she has already thought about it, she's leaving school next year, and she is not staying on or going collage or universcity or anything so she will have a load of time. I will be helping her with the breeding and I am very exsperience as I have worked on a stud farm, and I have just breed my mare its self and that's not the first time. I know all the ins and outs and when to phone the vet and not. There mare is coloured its self and jumps around 3'6ft. The mare has a wonderful confimation.
The girl is breeding her horse has loads of money, her family are rich. She can afford anything she wants.( she's selfish, whats she wants she gets) she is loaning a horse on full loan so she still has something to ride....
