    Foal
    Breeding my mare!

    Hi everyone. I have a 16.2hh percheron mare. She is 7 years old and has foaled before as she was a PMU mare at one point. Anyways Im breeding her to a BEAUTIFUL sport horse type stud this spring. He is a black and white tobiano and throws 80% colour. I don't think Ill get colour because my mare is dapple grey. I've never seen her past foals,but everyone keeps telling me it will grey out. O well I just want a healthy baby to raise. It will be trick trained after its weaned as a coming yearling to sit on a bale of hay,stand on a platform, bow, shake hoof, rear on command, ect. Stuff like that. It will be offered for sale but if I keep him/her I will use it as a pleasure horse for western and english displines. Maybe some low level jumping. Any tips on anything ?

    Lol.

    EllaEnchanted...what exactly are you wanting from a draft and sport? Are you wanting a heavy built sport horse? I'm not sure....

    Lol, any specific reason why you want to do tricks and stuff with the baby?



    I've seen a few draft horses crossed with sport horse types.
    There are some on dreamhorse [just for examples, lol]:

    Just say no. There are plenty of PMU babies you can buy if you want to raise a foal. Don't bring a draft cross mutt into the world just for your own gratification. In doing so you will be denying another foal or horse a good home.

    Foal
    This mare is being bred to a sport horse for a heavier sport horse foal. The foal is for my daughter to raise and train. Im doing trick training on the foal for fun. In the future if we take it into dressage it might come in handy. My daught also stated she wants to try trick riding. Not a fan but I wont stop her. This stud has been bred with other drafts mares before and has produced (surprisingly) VERY refined foals. Some of his foals are drafty as babies, like little tanks, then grow to be a good built horse. Im not so sure If I will take any offers on the foal because it will be for my daughter. It will be reg with BEHA ( not a 'real' registry but good enough to show)
