There are other factors with the 20 y/o mare that made me hesitant to rebreed her, though I would still love a foal from her.

I'm actually leaning towards buying, I think... as I really, really want a foal by this particular stud...

Also, I just revieced the payment booklet for my truck and as far as that goes, I'm not gonna have any or much extra money to spare for the next three years, so yeah, thinking of just buying in three or four years...

Britt if you are going to breed that mare do it next year. Every year she is barren increases the chance she will not conceive. At her age if she is healthy and with good nutrition she should have no problems. I have mares in their late teens and early 20's that I will still breed.
Glad you are learning more about breeding but some of the other members have brought up very good points.
IMO if you cannot breed that mare in the next year or two save your money and buy a younger mare the type you want to show. Show her THEN decide if you want to breed.
Good luck with whatever you decide. Shalom
