I'm still confused as to why you want to breed her . You said you want to keep the foal, I got that, but for what?

Wouldn't you have better luck at getting the personality you want by purchasing a young horse that's already been born? It'd be a whole lot less expensive too.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

And save a life as opposed to bringing a new one into the world. Just our 2 cents though.

I WHANT TO BREED MY MARE BECAUSE BOTH MARE AND STUD ARE IMPRESSIVE FREE. I HAVE LOOKED IN TO BUYING A FOAL BUT ALL OF THE ONES THAT I CAN FIND THAT ARE REGISTERD HAVE IMPRESSIVE IN THEM. I DON'T LIKE THE IMPRESSIVE LINE THAT IS WHY I AM BREEDING MY MARE.

There are tons of non-Impressive quarter horses out there. Can you expand your search?

I second that. What don't you like the Impressive line? (Im not familiar with QH's that's why I ask).

Im sure if an expanded search was done you could find one. If that's totally off your list than onto to which breeding. Personally none of the pictures are of good "confo" shots so giving detail will be hard to do. Also breeding for "personality" I find is pointless if that has anything to do with it. It has been said that a foals personality will be based on the dam. If your dam is a grouch the foal will be a grouch (yes I've seen it but no not 100% fool proof obv.) If your breeding for colour id go with the paint if your breeding for value id go with the chestnut.

A Dog looks up to a man,
A cat looks down on a man,
But a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal

I don't whant the impressive line because of the muscle problem that alot of the foals have. I am looking for a foundation breed filly. I don't whant to pay over $800 on.

Not if they're NN, but do what you want I guess.

I personally don't think that either stud is worthy of breeding for 2 reasons. 1. They're very young 2. They have not done anything with their careers (show wise) to be worthy enough (IMO) to be a stud.
