Breeding advice

A foal from your own mare?

We support you with this heartfelt topic.

Do you own a wonderful mare with whom you have already achieved impressive success? Or a mare that you have grown so fond of that you can hardly imagine life without her? Or maybe even a mare with a perfect mare line and an excellent pedigree, where it would be a shame if she were the last of her line? Then now is probably the time to raise a foal from this mare.

But what do you actually have to consider for this? The mountain of questions is huge, and finding all the necessary information takes time and nerves. You want a healthy foal from a mare that is prepared for birth in the best possible way - and we know what measures you should take to achieve this and when you should implement them.

That is why we would like to share our knowledge with you.

Years of experience

At the Behrenshof, well over 50 wonderful foals have already seen the light of day in recent years. Hopefully there will be many more!

Academic training

Marion Jennissen not only completed an agricultural apprenticeship, but also a degree in agricultural engineering at the University of Bonn.

Passion & Heart and Soul

No foal has ever been born at Behrenshof without becoming a part of the Behrenshof family. We would like to pass on this passion. 

With us you will learn everything you need to know to raise your first own foal. We share our experience of almost 15 years of breeding with you to ensure that you do everything possible to give your foal the best conditions to be born healthy.
