You should not breed indiscriminately. Both the mare and stallion should be proven in their field and have good conformation and temperaments. Ideally, breed from registered stock. Consider carefully what you will do with the horses you breed. Bear in mind that it will cost a minimum of £1,000 per year to raise a young horse. Seek advice from your veterinary surgeon and well-established breeders before you embark on breeding a foal.
The successful reproductive care of your mare involves disease control, ultrasound scanning, the detection and treatment of any problems and pregnancy diagnosis. Only a qualified Veterinarian can provide this full service.
