The Mare

The mare... Feminine, protective, gracious, gentle...

The female horse passes 50% of her genetic information on to her foal. However, a significant additional influence is due to non-genetic maternal influences, such as nourishment during gestation, milking ability of the dam and the strenght of the dams maternal instinct. Research has shown that an approximate 70% of the performance outcome of a foal is contributed by the mare. Hence, although the stallion often receives most credits for producing a great foal - if only by naming the foal after its sire - it is clear that the importance of selecting the best possible mares for a breeding program is critical to its success.

At Hulislaum, we have been and continue to be very picky in choosing each and every mare we own, as many of her foals will look, behave and grow up to be just like her.
