over breeding

Its not just in racing where there has been overbreeding, i gave up breeding welsh mountain ponies a good few years ago now due to so many people "starting a stud". And im sure its not just in race horses and welshies but covers a lot of the breeds.
Ponies being dumped left right and centre, welfare centres over flowing with unwanted animals and with things going like they are it will only get worse.
I do not think i will ever return to breeding as i would be too worried to sell them.
