I would have to agree with the decision not to breed this mare. I have doubts that you would be able to make any money from selling the foal, if that is your intention. Breeding can be a high risk for both the mare and the potential foal, so much can go wrong and you have to go into the process with the knowledge that you can lose both the mare and the foal. When things go wrong they can go wrong very quickly. It is also expensive to breed a mare, once you figure in the cost of the stud fee for a GOOD stallion, extra feed and care, as well as vet fees, you will see it is difficult to come out ahead moneywise. Also not saying this to be mean, but that mare does not have the conformation I would consider acceptable for a broodmare.
