    Maybe you should calm down and save some of that energy for your slaughter babies?
    I'm no expert, but I'm aware. I watch the news just like every middle aged American in these great states. :)


    And I like how a grown woman is sitting here trying to put down a sixteen year old. That's very mature of you, isn't it?

    Calling you down? I don't believe I did much more then speak the truth. Don't wage wars if you're not equipped to fight them properly.

    Sounds like you know a lot about me, considering you've never met me.

    There have been a good number of nice mares with owners who have the best intentions for the foal (i.e. Marketability, knowing what they want, not just breeding "for the experience" but to produce a foal that will be a good addition to the world) in the recent past.
    The problem is that a lot of people post here who, in all honesty, don't have the best mares, or don't have a great plan for the resulting foal. It is my opinion that trying to educate these posters (through nice means) is good because it might mean that one less unmarketable foal is brought into the world.

    The OP is looking for opinions on what to breed her little cross mare to a stud with color to possibly sell the foal in the future -- it is my honest opinion that the OP should do some more research before committing.

    *****

    Breeding horses is like starting a business. You are venturing into something that is completely uncertain. To start up said business, you need a plan. Steve might say "well I want to make lots of money, and I want to sell stuff." That is a very basic business plan, but it doesn't incorporate any details, nor does it give the investor any idea as to how well this plan is going to work. If Sam does his research and comes up with a solid plan (i.e. What is Sam going to sell? Why is his product better? How can he advertise this product? How much is he going to invest? How much is he expecting in return? Etc etc etc) he is going to be much more informed, and Sam can step into that plan with confidence and your business is much more likely to do better than Steve.

    The OP is Steve right now. The OP knows that the might want to do something, but has a very vague "business plan" that, if she goes into it blind like she is right now, will more likely than not, produce an undesirable foal. If she does her research and finds out EXACTLY what stallion might compliment her mare, and do LOTS of research, she will be more likely to succeed like Sam.

    I have no idea if that made sense. Bedtime for me.

    Eh... Tact is for people who can't use sarcasm to their defense... against utter BS.

    I find Macabre a nice and enjoyable person, to be honest. If the person didn't want to be up for discussion/hated on - then she should not have posted here. Simple as that.

    No. She probably shouldn't have.


    God help somebody just want one dang foal to raise out of their mare and post about it on here. People on their high horses will just come and step all over the OP.

    She can go buy a foal for $50 at her local auction, I'll just about guarantee it.

    As opposed to your happy sunshine world of rainbows and lollipops where people only ever agree with you and nobody is allowed to have their own opinion?

    I will NEVER understand the complete stupidity it takes to not understand that posting on a PUBLIC FORUM leaves you wide open to any and all comments.

    Here's a novel idea - don't post if you can't handle the commentary.

    OMFG I NEED TO WIN AN EMMY FOR BEING A GENIUS!
