    I still think you should just buy a foal. Theres too many horses that go to slaughter. But hey that's just my opinion.

    Foal
    Its perfectly ok to express your opinion! One of the other reasons were breeding my mare and not buying a foal is my daughter is right dead in love with my mare and wants to have a part of her. She also picked out the stud. The foal and my mare wont ever be anywhere near a slaughterhouse in there entire lives! Don't worry, none of my foals, mares, studs, yearlings, ect. Have ever ended out in slaughter.

    No I was talking about the add to the population and the other homeless horses. Never the less, it's your mare and if you think it's right go ahead. :)

    I can understand why you want to breed your mare. She's part of your family and you've had her for a while. I wanted to breed my mare when she gets older, but considering she has HyPP, i'm not going to.

    I think your daughter will have an amazing bond with the foal because she'll be with him from day one.

    The tricks also seem cool. Not so much the rearing part of it, but the sitting down, shaking hoof. That's so cute. I taught my mare how to bow and she'll do it on command. It only stinks when I pick her feet because she thinks I want her to bow. But its so cute.

    Foal
    Awww cute. I taught my old filly how to bow, its what got her sold. Ya, you have to be VERY careful when rearing. I like to only have them rear a foot and a half or so off the ground. Not huge high strung ,feet kicking rears. That's scary! Lol

    Foal
    Wow, how many forums have you two joined in the last few days Maber and Deja? I guess you have to keep on posting the same nonsense over and over again to see if just maybe you'll get a different response than what has been repeatedly said?? This is nuts!

    ^^^^^ who cares??? Maybe she is looking for as many opinions as she can get. I really don't think its any of your business whether she asks the same question in one or six forums.

    So heres the objective response she may have been after: to those who carry on about cross breeding, im getting so tired of hearing it. There is nothing wrong with selectively breeding two different breeds for a specific purpose especially if the horse is going to be a forever horse. Even if not, cross breeding is becoming more popular and there is NO problems with doing so as long as the people breeding are responsible when choosing the parents. Anglo arabs! The ever growing wb tb x etc etc people need to stop judging a possible breeding couple based on the fact that they parents are different breeds. The slaughter issue comes from backyard breeders who breed any old poor confo horse with another and end up with an ugmo that no one will want. The difference between the two needs to be recognised and people who are responsibly doing these things need to be left alone. Personal opinion is fine but some people need to watch how they express such opinions as many of the comments made border on put downs and that is not what this forum is all about.

    I agree on all points. I think if you are planning on keeping the foal as part of the family you can do whatever you want. I have a couple of dogs (reg. Scottish terriers) that we bred for us and a couple of other people who wanted puppys from my male. He is a real manly man, intellegent dog. Of course there is no cross breeding involved but the premise stands about all the unwanted dogs in shelters, why didn't we just adopt one. I do support my local Humane Society and have a couple of dumped mutts that are just as wanted and loved as my registered "kids"
