Oh goodness don't breed her! Mares give so much to the baby, especially when it comes to manners and behaviors. As someone who has worked with mostly broodmares and babies for the last 13 years, I can rightfully say that if you can't train and/or work with this mare, you will not be able to properly handle a baby. Having a baby will not "calm her down" as I have heard people say about moody mares, and a mare with behavioral issues and a lack of respect will not think twice about attacking a person if she happens to be a defensive and protective mother. Even the sweetest mares can be flat dangerous when her baby is involved. This year our sweet and loving mare(first time mom) stomped the resident pig to death for walking by her colt. That and threatening everything else has transferred to the colt, who now has killed three cats and chases anything smaller than him. I can hardly wait for him to be weaned and gelded. Thank goodness our dogs keep their distance from the horses. Babies are great, if you know what you are doing. They are so much better when they come from great mares.
You cannot count on the stallion to fix the problems you are havibg with your mare.
I agree with the above posters about the mare hormibe supplements. If you can't work with her, and won't sell her(I have one of those by the way), keep her as a pet. I make ample excuses for my pasture pet. She is so lucky to have me.
