I have a mix too!!

I have 3 Percheron mixes they are all crossed with Foxtrotters. Last year I acquired The mother (already bred) and her 6 month old colt (now gelding) and this year she had another colt. The colts both are full brothers and 3/4 foxtrotters since she is 1/2 and 1/2 and the dad is full foxtrotter. Here are thier pictures. I guess I don't have any decent pictures of the mom but she is a brown pinto. So I guess just the boys for now

I don;t really have any experience at all with breeding (I would love to own a foal, but will one day purchase/adopt one and not breed my own mare), so take this as just an opinion please. I also know diddly squat about conformation, so I won't make a comment on that. My only comment would be to consider her dust allergy. Have you had her worked up for this at all? My concern is breeding an animal (any - be it horse, dog, cat etc..) with a medical condition that requires special needs ie..can't be around indoor arena due to dust or in a winter dust paddock. I know you currently have grass pastures and the ability to keep the mare and potential foal there, but what happens in the future if you need to sell? How would you be able to board either horse? If you did have to sell the foal, it would be a turn off to a lot of people if she had a breathing issue. Personally, I would not breed for that reason alone.

You could obtain Pinto papers very easily. All you have to do is pay the undocumented, meaning unknown parents, price of $125 plus a $40 membership, so $165 total for papers is pretty cheap. I wouldn't specifically tell them anywhere that she may be 1/2 draft. I would just check hunter type and if asked call her an American warmblood cross. The reason for this is it will open up more potential show opportunities as not all pinto shows have all the "utility" (draft) classes.

Pinto registration can be done completely by email too. You fill out this form http://www.pinto.org/information/12_registration.pdf using the credit/debit card option and then print/sign/scan or even take a clearly readable photo of it then email it to photos@pinto.org with the subject line being "Registration of _____" the blank is your 1st name choice. Also in that email send 4 separate image files (left, right, front, and rear or the horse). All you have to write in the body of the email is "attached is my registration application and photos. Thanks. Name & address"

As far as testing for frame, it's a great idea and inexpensive as well, but if you only breed to a negative tested stallion, you wouldn't have to pay for that test.

As large as she appears to be, you may also want to consider AI because it will be easier on a smaller stud, and will open up a wider variety of stallions to choose from. Getting papers for your mare may also get her approved by more stallion owners than not having any at all.

@livestoride, Her breathing is also one of the reasons we are only considering the option of breeding her. We know for a fact her breathing problem isn't genetic, (it is from long term exposure to dust) but before we get really serious about breeding her we are definitely getting her checked out by a vet to see if it would be too risky to breed her. Trust me, I love this mare and wouldn't want to do anything that could potentially harm her. I do appreciate that you pointed that out though.

Btw here is a stallion I found that I kind of liked. He has the low hocks that blueeyedpony mentioned. Any critique or ideas? Im just looking around right now for horses I may keep my eye on. Your not going to hurt my feelings by stating your opinions :)

I don't know if anyone mentioned possibly a national show horse stallion My mare tango is a cross with a belgian mare and NSH stallion the cross is always a nice cross. Here she is 9 months preggy.

I don't really believe in absolutes about breeding anyhow, but I cannot imagine a less true statement. Crossing two opposite types rarely works out. Occasionally you may get lucky and get a nice horse, but saying that it is "always a nice cross" is patently false.

Shoulder could be a lot better, back is long, and hocks aren't actually low, it's an optical illusion caused by the very clever but very obvious trick of photographing the stallion while he is standing on a hill.

Head and neck are nice though.
