hmmm I think you need to think about this abit more. Alot of people really want to breed their horses because that horse is special to them. But I can't understand why you can't go buy a foal or adopt a foal looking for a forever home, they need homes and love too. I only agree with breeding for such bloodlines, for how to explain this um, making the horses build, body, confo and everything better etc. covering a thouroughbred with a clyde doesnt sound like a very good plan im sorry, I just can't agree with this. I think you should have alot more thoughts about this first.
Nothing I say is going to change your mind but If you do still go through with it, I wish everything well for both the foal, mare and you =].
My friends little dog got covered by a stray that was massive I think he was a um dane maybe? I can't remember what she told me I just remember he was a big dog and 2 out of 4 of the puppies died, the other two were okay though and grew up happily and lived good lives. Hopefully that doesnt happen often in horses. Good luck! :)
Theres so much to do with breeding, maybe you could go to a stud farm and ask them some questions, they could possibly help you and give you some advice.
