I have been told a Thoroughbred mare would not be able to have a foal sired by a Percheron due to her hips not being wide enough..is this true?

Hi Jes

I have a number of Percheron crosses all of which have come from TB mares. These mares have not had problems foaling down at all. From my understanding of breeding, mares usually determine the size of the unborn foal, as it will only grow to the size of the mares uterus. Well that is what I have been lead to believe.

Hope this helps you out a little bit. But I probably wouldn't put a maiden mare in foal to a Percheron. Best of luck with your breeding.
