Oxer, I'm certainly not only breeding to a stallion soley on his hair quality nor did I state that in my post. I was saying that I'm not interested in breeding to a friesian that has poor hair as so many do not. I'm wanting to produce more of a sport horse foal & that's what my mare is, also she is registered with FHANA/FPS. Thank you for all the replies, several important facts have been brought to my attention so I appreciate it! Fiona is my first friesian & I've had her 4 years now, this is also my first experience breeding & choosing the stallion myself.

I never said you did. I just had never known that you could breed a horse for their hair.... and that a person would be looking for that particular type of thing in a stallion. That's all I was stating.

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

Honestly, if you have an FPS/FHANA mare, I'd breed to an approved stallion. If you're not looking to register with the main book, you can always consider our boy. ;) He's got more hair than the one you showed, has done exhibitions world wide, rare Age lines, excellent personality. Oh... and he's alive. Lol We also ship semen.

I'm sorry if I sounded grumpy in my reply, after reading over what I put it did sound that way & I didn't mean it to )= I appreciate people taking the time to reply to my post.

Take a critical look at your mare. What's her biggest area that you would like to improve upon? Find a stallion that is exemplary in those areas first. Give that foal a chance of receiving the best of both. How does the stallion's pedigree complement/work with your mare's? I would find an experienced breeder that can tell you how that mating would work out. Certain stam lines work better with some while others result in more average foals. The stallion owner will most likely approve or reject your mare based on her breeding as well. Don't be offended if someone rejects your mare. She could just be too closely bred or not well matched for that individual stallion. They want 1st premium foals out of their stallion just like you do.

There has been a recent influx of more modern young approved stallions to the US. They might only have one foal crop and a limited # but you might get a super stud fee because of that but you also can't go wrong with old proven sires. I'd go only with fresh semen. Know the motility rate of the semen and the conception rates before you put your $$ down.

Just a red flag about the ad IMO- Friesians are relatively rare in Florida, and I live fairly near Palatka.. It's a very tiny town and I've never heard of any Friesian farms there, or near there. Ocala, I'd believe- that's horse country..

Here are some that may meet with your approval.. the last one Zeus, is also listed on SHN Payback..
FRIESIAN

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

He is absolutely stunning.

I would LOVE to breed him to my mare, if she was breeding quality. :/ Haha, absolutely gorgeous.



No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.

Don't even bothering looking at any of these stallions. None are approved. Every approved stallion in FHANA/FPS will have a one word name followed by a #. There are probably upwards of 30 stallions in the US and Canada to choose from. You're better off going to FHANA to get information.

If your mare is FHANA/FPS approved, she'll lose her approval status if you breed her to a non-approved stallion.

If that's not something you care about, then go ahead. If it is, and I can't imagine why it wouldn't be since approval is very important, then you can only breed her to approved stallions.
