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.
