you absolutely have the right to refuse to breed a mare.
neglected, wormy, diseased, sick, hooves too long, average conformation, train-wreck conformation...the list goes on and on.
I know some stallion owners that wont breed to any mare that hasnt proven herself in someway...no record...no stud service.
people will get ticked off, but its about breeding quality...not quantity.
a stallion owner i talked with about breeding Rumor to this past spring, had to see clear...well taken photographs of her and her pedigree before approving her and sending me a contract for breeding. no approval = no contract. people were ticked and the stallion owner posted on FB a big response to all those that were ticked off at her for not approving their mares...well, they just werent quality enough to cross to this stallion. and the mare owners were mad. but that was the stallion owners choice and right to produce quality foals from quality mares, not just your average, neglected mare down the road.
