I'm planning to put my mare to a stallion in spring next year as she has to have a full year out (vet has said she's fine to be put in foal next spring) and am looking at suitable stallions. She's a 15'1 cob mare (mom is IDxTB and dad was a coloured cob). I'm looking at tb types mainly but am not sure about size for the stallion - I don't want her to end up with a huge foal she'll struggle to give birth to. Is this something I need to be concerned about, as in stay with under 16hh or would a larger tb/warmblood type, like 16'2 - 17hh be ok?

Anything else I need to consider (aside from ensuring the stallion complements my mare nicely)? I do have a good idea of cost and risk etc but this is my first breeding and the mares first foal.

I bred my 13.1 hh Connemara mare via a.i with a nearly 17 hh Hanoverian stallion, she had no problems with the colt which was small at birth. He is about 15.1 now, and a stout cob. She had one previous pony foal though.

The foal will only grow to the size the uterus allows even if it is going to finish much larger than its dam when mature.
