Broodmares

 

When breeding horses, the stallion is normally highly valued, but the mare is   even   more important, since it is more transmitting, the X chromosome (female) is larger and carries much more genetic information, so the mothers of offspring are fundamental in the stud farm.

It is necessary to assess their conformation and morphology, their character and temperament, their rate of success in gestation and their ease in calving. It is very important how good a mother she is and how she raises her foal, since she is the one who feeds and teaches him in his first months of life.

It is not only essential to feed the mare correctly during her pregnancy, the foal's lactation and weaning of the foal to achieve maximum quality and health for both, but also to control deworming, teeth, hooves and their levels of activity and exercise.
