My irresponsable mother is looking to breed her appy mare. GRRRR...
As many of you know I am firmly on the DON'T BREED bandwagon. Well, my mother has got it in her mind that she wants a baby out of her "beautiful" mare Satin, just because she is pretty
. I will admit she has pretty good lines, is foundation bred, and a proven broodmare, but I just don't think mom needs to breed her. I asked her today if instead she wanted to go to the auction and find another horse with good lines really really cheap, but noooo she has to breed
. To say the least I am steamed. It is so aggravating that she can't see reason and logic and not breed. She doesn't even ride anymore, what the heck does she want a foal for? Right now the horses are in a barbed wire pasture without even a run in shelter, she hasn't the time or resources for a foal. Yet there is no way I can change her mind about it, period.
So I told her if I cannot change her mind, I am going to make sure she doesn't half ass it and breed to an unproven stud because it is close and cheap. If she is going to do this, I am at least going to make sure the foal comes out with a fighting chance, should mom (most likely) sell it.
So now I am on the hunt for a good well lined Appy stud near Poplar Bluff, Missouri 63901. I will post her lines and conformation pictures when she sends them to me.
If anyone has a well bred appy stud or knows someone who does can you please pm me or just post it on here? Thanks.
