Because Whiskey has been such a stellar horse and I had been trying to breed her I asked if this could be genetic or hereditary. Sam said there hasn't been much in the way of research done on the topic it is likely something that can be transferred. Being the type of person I am if there is any question of potential complications I won't breed her. Even though she meets all the other criteria: great disposition, athletic, trainable.
On that note, I had stumbled across a broodmare for sale on Kijiji. While the mare is not broke she has pretty good bloodlines. So now I'm on the fence trying to decide if this mare would be a good purchase. I'm not sure if I can give up my dream of breeding my own performance horse, even though I know there are tons of babies for sale and people need to have very good reasons for breeding to help reduce the glut of unwanted horses.
What do you think?
