done a lot of breeding over the years, I'm sorry to say I think you are crazy. Keep that lovely senior mare happy and healthy and don't breed her. Yes, maybe you can get her in foal and maybe the story will have a happy ending, but the reality is at the very least, older mares have a much harder time getting in foal and carrying a foal to term is harder. The risks of her losing the pregnancy, late term even, are greater. If you are really serious about getting a foal from her, consider embryo transfer.
