Feeling at loose ends with Whiskey I'd emailed Roxy's breeder. I asked if they were interested in a free breeding lease. I just don't need a broodmare and don't want to breed her for no reason. Really, how many babies do I need? The response? Would I be willing to sell her?
Do I take the reasonable offer for a broodmare sound only horse? I'm relatively confident she'd be taken care of. I think she'd make a nice cross with their stallion. Or do I hold onto her?
Remember this is a horse I love. She's such a nice mare. She has a great disposition, personality and athletic ability. Even though she's permanently lame.
She'll never produce the cutter of my dreams. She's rather large for that. And ethically I can't breed her just cause she has a uterus.
What to do? What to do?
