And if you buy a foal already dropped you do not risk your mare.

Here is my 2 cents, it looks like your mare is stalled with the foal. It would be more likely that the colt could be stepped on when in that small of a stall. Normal mare/foal stalls are considerably larger to allow for safety and movement of the mare. If you breed again, would it be possible to keep the mare and foal outside in a pasture?

The mare and foal being stalled was due to his contracted tendon which required restricted turn out. If that hadn't happened they would have been outside much more, if not all the time. She was a fantastic mother but sadly things can happen. I had a lot of anger toward her for it but I realized that she didn't mean to harm him. I've decided to not breed her again as the world is already full of horses that are not wanted and I don't want to bring another one into it knowing this. Not that the foal wouldn't be wanted, but I'm sure you all know what I mean. Thank you all for the responses. This forum is such a fantastic resource.
