I have a filly who will be three next spring. She has been down to be bred to a new up and coming stallion since she was born and was part of her purchase agreement. I am wondering this, i plan on showing her next spring for the first time in halter, would it be too much of a conflict to have her bred in the spring and start her showing career at the same time?

She would be four when she has her foal, i am just wondering if it will be two stressful for her at the same time.

NOt too stressful but if showing her is your goal you will ruin her chances by breeding her, it ruins their physical appearance. Why not just show her then breed her when you are finished with showing.

Thanks Cathy,

Thats another thing I was wondering about. I just have to be careful as in her sales contract the breeding will expire by her fifth year. But i might as well wait one more year. I will have other baby's to worry about next year anyways . Here are a couple older pictures of her. FTA's Shamira Malik

Kali, your filly is beautiful. I agree with Cathy, it will change the way she looks so I would wait one more year if you want to show her halter.

Also if she is doing well the people who you owe the foal to may extend your contract so she can keep showing for it may be worth it to them to have a foal from a mare who was good in the ring.

Tracy, What a beautiful filly, love that head on her!!! I would definitely be in communication with the stallion owners. They should be really supportive especially if this was one of their babies. Good Luck!

She's not my filly but I agree she's gorgeous I do breed Arabians though so I'm definitely partial to them!
