Where are some good sites for checking for quality mares being free leased for breeding?
I'd like to find some good quality appy and arab mares to breed, really would love to find a Baroque or Warmblood type but I'm not getting my hopes up. I don't want to buy right now as I have a couple of mares I need to sell first and if the mare didn't work out I wouldn't have to worry about selling them but return them back to their owners.
I can provide excellent references from my vet, farrier, and other horse people... including the local feed stores who get all my money
. Con is that my stable is still a work in progress. I have a barn per say for the mares when it's close to foaling time but otherwise keep them outside 24/7 with blanket/ flysheet/ nothing depending on the weather.
There would also be a detailed contract stating everything I planned and what would happen in various circumstances. I would also get insurance on them.
I also wanted to know if you were selling a mare what would you think if someone offered to lease them? This would of course be for an older well bred mare.
