Does cross breeding lower the value of the stud?

My Grampa wants to breed his Shetland pony to my mini horse My dad (witch is not a horse person) says it will lower my horses value. Is this true? My horse is the great grandson of Boones Little Buckeroo And the grand son of little kings black velvet

the shetland is a mare ? the foal would have the decreased value by not being registered. Your stallions value would not change. that is, unless the mare hurt him while he was trying to breed her..

No it would not lowere the value of your stallion.
it might give you an idea about the type of foals he would produce.
Isn't there a mini horse registry that does allow this cross and the foal would be able to register it. Just curious. Shalom

It doesn't decrease his value, just the foal by not being registered.

The question is, why do you and grandpa, want to breed? There are thousands of Minis around right now and needing homes. Many with excellent show records are being given away.

Boons Little Buckeroo that far in the background, means little. Thousands of Minis have him in their background. We have one. He is gelded and did have a respectable show career.

What has your stallion done? How has he produced in the past? What is grandpa's mare like? Is she top quality and likely to produce a foal which would be marketable? Are both registered? With which registries? Has either produced a dwarf in the past?

If you know your pedigrees, you will know that most Minis also have Shetlands in their background. If your stallion is very well known and of top quality, I'd personally stick to breeding only Minis. According to the height of the Shetland, the foal could quite well go over the size limits. However, many do cross Minis and Shetlands.

The only registry that I can think of off the top of my head that doesn't allow crossbreeding whatsoever is for Friesians. If the stallion or mare is found to have crossbred, they're kicked out of the registry.

Honestly, I wouldn't breed like this. What would be the purpose other then "a baby would be cute?" I only say this as the risk to both the mare and the stud. Stud could get kicked and hurt during breeding. Mare could die during birth etc... There are so many ponies out there already. If Grandpa wants another pony, he could get one of them. If it is just for the experience, does the benefit outweigh the risk? What will happen to the baby? 35 years from now, where would the baby be? All things to think about.

Most of your breed registries DO NOT allow crossbreds whatsoever....Arabs, ASB's, Morgans, AQHA, JC to name a few.
