Horse breeding can look real glamourous but for those of us who have tried it, we know that there are a lot of challenges involved. Death, injury, illness, dissapointment and waiting can be a very real part of the journey. And when that happens it can be really tough. Mentally and financially. We hope this conversation will help lighten the mental load.
Shelby and her family have been breeding horses for years, at one point having over 100 mares on pasture. She has amazing insight into what it takes to raise horses. Brad and I have been breeding horses for 15 years now and have also had our fair share of experience with both the fun times and the struggles.
In this episode we shed some light on common (and some not so common) but unfortunate challenges you may come across when raising horses. When those things occur it can be easy to get hard on ourselves, blame ourselves, feel overwhelming guilt and frustration. Although it's important to keep learning and improving your system, no matter how much you try, there will be times when nature takes over and horses come up open or injured, or ill. And it's important to keep reminding yourself that it's part of the process and doesn't mean that your failing or not cut out for it.
Keep your head up, focus on the good and get after it. Breeding horses is magic.
