Wells, im going to go ahead and say CONGRATS!! I hope all goes well for mare and baby :)

It seems the stud throws correct and colorful foals, even if he is a little camped under. And your mare is beautiful. I love that heavy build and she passed all those good looks to her filly. :)

I don't recall the OP asking anyone's opinions on her choice of breedings. Grow up people.

Rude much?

The OP had to agree to the following to make this thread -
Please note that in many cases, breeding a horse is a controversial topic. Many feel that, with the number of horses going to slaughter and the economy in the state it is, breeding unregistered, unproven horses, who's foals would be without inherent value and would therefore have great difficulty finding new homes if necessary, is irresponsible.

If the horse you would like to discuss breeding has any specific accolades (awards, pedigree, etc.), please share them at the outset so that others understand that the foal in question has decent prospects and can reply accordingly.

On the other hand, if you are simply looking to breed a companion animal you are fond of or the like, you are of course welcome to start a thread, but please be advised that, because this is a public forum and posts invite replies, you are likely to hear from people who consider it irresponsible to take on the risks and expense of bringing a foal with dim prospects into the world when there are already many fine companion animals going to slaughter.

While we don't like to see anyone's feelings hurt at the Horse Forum, we would be remiss if we did not allow members to educate those who's plans to breed tend to contribute to the collective suffering of the horses we all love.

By agreeing to this and creating a thread in the Horse Breeding forum, you acknowledge that your thread is subject to criticism and understand that you have the option of not creating it.

My bad I'm not a horse forum nazi, but for people to be saying and I quote "I like the stallion, but your mare..." is really pretty rude.

Just seemed rude to me. I understand constructive criticism, but that was definitely not constructive.

No it wasn't.

OP, your mare is very cute. And while I can completely agree your plan to breed her & keep the baby for yourselves is a valid reason (sorry faye, but something could happen to any of us at any time, does that mean none of us should get a horse? But I completely, 100% agree with the poor excuse of breeding a mare just to breed a mare).

Anyway OP, I can see why you like that stud and not just for his color. BUT, what about finding one similiar that has stronger conformation to compliment your mare? There are quite a few QH or Paint studs that not only would compliment her confo, but that have just as desirable personality as the one you are looking at. That way you kill 2 birds with 1 stone, you get the baby that you want and also get one that may more desirable in the resale market should you ever need to find it a new home?

Not bashing you in any way, shape, or form. I think your reason for breeding your mare is a valid one (you're not doing it to make money), but just wondering if you've looked at other possibilities.

Rude, petty and completely unnecessary. This could have been worded a thousand other ways. Even an ounce of tact will take you far in life....

That being said, I'm no expert, but even I'm wondering why this pairing? It seems like there are many people in the US at least who bred their horses because they love their particular horse, and she's awesome...I wonder how many of those unspectacular babies have no where to go now?

I THINK that if someone is choosing to breed, this should be something that should be considered. I always hear people saying, "my cousin/aunt/uncle/sister will take Precious in if something happens to me"....but I'd submit that given how fallible people are, it may be better to have more than one "back up plan". And if you can't ....maybe it's better not to breed something that won't be desirable to others.

Busy - the OP is across the pond in the UK and I don't believe that there are as many APHA or AQHA type studs available there like there is in the US.
