    Why do you think that?

    I could believe the mare is AQHA, or APHA, but I wouldn't make any big plans until you have the papers.

    I am in the "if you don't have papers you shouldn't be breeding" camp. However, I am not going to preach about that. What I do want to point out is what you need to test both her and the potential sire for.

    LWO, HYPP and HERDA. Test her for these. Once you know her status it will influence what stallions you can choose from.

    Just suspicions.. I'll say more when/if we actually see the mare's papers.

    Well I just want to add that she is gorgeous! And that I have my fingers crossed that her papers are legit.

    The OP has nothing to prove by showing the papers.
    I am willing to accept her word and see no reason to question her integrity. Good luck with the breeding. Shalom

    I am in that camp too. That's why I said I'm not breeding her until I have her papers in my posession.

    As long as you plan for every scenario, and have a home for that foal no matter what the circumstances, I don't see why you shouldn't go ahead and breed your mare.
    You don't sound like a backyard breeder or an idiot. People are pretty sensitive about "Should I breed/Who should I breed to" threads because many of them are started by folks who have no idea what they're doing.

    Don't let that deter you. If you would prefer to breed and raise a foal rather than purchase one, do so. Do so responsibly... and you will be fine.
    I can't really weigh in on a stallion, I'll leave that to others.
    Also, your mare is stunning!
    Thank you! That is a risk anyone takes breeding their horses, always a chance of getting a dink with any breeding. I could always use more horses around for every day riding if that was the case! I love and cherrish every horse I have had and don't use them as a commodity like some do. So there would deffinetly be a home with me as long as circumstances allow!

    No backyard breeding here, that is the lady that lives down my road! She has 2198472948794879478 horses, and breeds them all to eachother I guess just because they have the equipment to do it. I only have a son of Dash for Perks that I put alot of planning and money in to, and today I have the colt that is everything I had hoped for from that breeding.

    Thanks about the comment on "Jetta"! I felt like I won the lottery when he GAVE her to me for the price of riding 2 other colts for him.

    I didn't read the stallions ad, but by looks he's a nice looking stud with an awesome set of papers. Though with that stud fee you could breed to a bigger named stud.

    Your mare is a nicely built mare and alot of people like cow bred and running bred horses crossed together. Your obviously not breeding to just any random stud and you know what your doingof so I say go for it.

    Also wanted to add even if this mare was APHA (which its not as stated by OP) bred to a QH stud the baby would be registered as a Paint, Paint takes horses from Paint, QH, and TB breeding.
