A studmaster has told me not to bother with an unbroken 5 yo mare. He says mares like her have problems foaling .What do others think ?

She was never taught to lead,she just picked it up instantaneously and she has the most beautiful temperament you could imagine.

What does  "unbroken"  have to do with foaling ??  Confused  Wild mares,,,unbroken,,,foal all the time ????  No problems.    That sounds crazy to me.  Ermm
animals before people.

Is the studmaster saying she will have problems foaling because she's not broken to ride?  It sounds like she IS halter broke.

Or is he referring to something specific about her anatomy?  Was she never backed because of an injury to her back or pelvis, for instance?  Are her hips very narrow?

Ask your vet. They’ll know more than a studmaster

Maybe the hidden text is that the studmaster, for whatever reason, doesn't want anything to do with the mare.

Why would she have a problem foaling? Ask a brumby!
As SC says , maybe other issues.
