Hi Guys

Anyone here experienced with breeding Clydies?
I have been told by a few breeders they are easy to breed, like rabbits, someone else has told me they are difficult breeders.

Also, what is the usual cause in the breed for a failure to get in foal? When they are given a breeding check is there anything that should be especially looked at?
At what age does a Clydie mare usually retire from breeding? (eg an older girl, maybe 20, only had a couple of bubs... to try or not to try, is there much point? Very healthy old duck, apart from her extra greys and a tiny bit of loss in the top line you would never guess her age. If she was an Arabian or one of the ponies I would have no hesitations that she would get in foal no worries and be fine with the birth.

Another of the mares I am told was run out with a stallion but never got a foal on her, it was never looked into, they are all owned by an older gentleman. She very well could have been utterly obese for all I know as they have the run of 100 acres only shared with a few cattle on good dairy country.

Vulva conformation on them all is fine, nothing slightly out of the norm to report, health wise without having a vet out I can't complain, they needed to go on a diet as they looked like sleek fat seals all ready for winter. Dietry wise I believe everything to be in order with them, their coats and eyes are very bright, don't look at all wormy and not a spot of sun bleach, hooves while in need of trimming are hard, no signs of thrush ect

If there is anything I can rule out or check for that doesn't require anything internal by a repro vet that would be a useful starting point please do let me know, they are big girls (for Australian standards) and the one who never got in foal I believe is a teenager now, never had a halter on - so as you can imagine I want to make friends with her before I subject her to all sorts of poking and prodding

This may all very well be a stupid post, but as I have never had anything to do with the breed and all breeds do have their differences it can't hurt to ask



I don't know what the super phosphate history is for the property but would hazzard a guess that if it was treated it would be back some time in ancient history - does any one know the length of time treating the soil thus has an effect of pregnancy?
