I have been thinking about buying a foal in utero and have started doing some research on it. I know colour and gender aren't guaranteed (unless colour testing is done, then it can be predictable, but gender is still a 50/50). I also know that there must be a contract in place to make sure that if the foal dies while in the mare owners care, I get my money back or something else we both agree on, etc. But what else should I be thinking if I decide to do this? Pros and cons of buying in-utero? The reason I thought of this was because I was considering breeding my mare, but I don't have any experience with foaling and newborn (first 24 hours) foal care. I do have experience caring for broodmares and experience working with suckling and weanling foals, but I thought until I get more knowledge on everything, I better leave that to the experienced breeders. I still want another foal project though. I got my 2 year old filly as a weanling, and my 6 year old mare as a yearling, both untouched. So there is no worries there about what I am doing training wise. Does anyone have experience with buying in-utero? Any pros to buying unborn instead of at weaning time? Any cons? Any good articles online I should read? Please share any and all experiences!
