Generally stallions are thought to be the most influential part of the breeding process; they are the one in the spotlight. 

But what about the mare? 

Genetically speaking, foals are 50% mum and 50% dad, however as the mare carries and raises the foal to weaning we feel she has a greater impact and her characteristics weigh in closer to 60%.  

For this reason we place a huge amount of importance on the selection of our mares.  

They must pass a strict checklist before being the first impression on any Bellecara foal.
