    Your friend was very lucky and It is not something that I would risk.
    Please quote your studies and information. Considering TrueColors is IN the breeding business, where are your credentials to be scaring the lark out of people with a bunch of information you "heard"?

    I also really like Don De Marco. He's stunning! And good lord both your mares are gorgeous! I just want to steal both of them!

    Psst...where are you at? I just might come take them off your hands!

    Haha they're in Pa and they're my princesses...and they know it! And for the right price and the right home both foals will be for sale in the Fall of 2012 =)

    Nittany I ope I have enough for a foal like you'd have in 2012. I'm 16 and me and my mom are always struggling with money but horses are our passion and eventing is mine.

    On another note. If don de marco's stud fee is only $500 I might have to buy the mare i'm training and breed to him. :)

    Live my dream! Breed one of them to this great Morgan stud:

    He's had a few thoroughbred cross babies that have done well at eventing.

    Here's one for sale:

    I own an AQHA and always always wanted a Morgan. Still do. So I dream of getting a little Morgan mare and crossing her with a huntery TB stud. You would definitely have different if you did that, I don't think there are very many Morgan TB crosses out there. I love the Friesian though, he is really something.

    I do like the Morgan. He's really cool!

    You should also consider Gervantus II. He's my mares sire. He produces horses wit amazing jumping talent, I can prove it by showing you some pictures of my girl. She is fearless too, never spooked at the flowers and jumped them like a pro the first time. Wasn't spooked by banks, or log/rock jumps in the cross-country course either.

    Beau, you could potentially do what's called a breeding lease with that mare if the owner were open to it. Basically, you pay all of the stud/vet fees and the care of the mare while pregnant and nursing, then keep the foal.

    Just sayin', you don't necessarily have to own the mare to breed her... as long as you write out a bulletproof agreement with the mare's owner.

    That's very true. I was thinking of leasing my mare for a breeding lease instead of breeding her myself but then I saw this amazing deal for a stud fee and got baby fever =P

    Thats a good idea Eolith. I actually have a training lease on a premium 1 mare out of Gervantus II and she's had a gorgeous baby so maybe one day I'll see about doing that.
