future breeding

Hi all!
Iam going to be breeding my mare in 2011, and was looking for some ideas,
I had planned on breeding her to a race bred QH, but now am being "pressured" lol into a warmblood or tB



she is a Secratariat grand daughter, and has Man O War on her sires side, her QH goes back to Wimpy and and TON of ohter nice foundation QH

her drawback is that she is only 14.4 hh, but a NICE mover and EXTREMELY FAST!

thoughts anyone?

ps her first foal I will be keeping for 4 years, doing some light shows and then selling to the show world.... when I breed her for my own I will be breeding her to a quiet on the short and stocky side.. lol

There is no such thing as 14'4 height. It can be 14'3 or 15.

I'm sorry for the dumb question, but what breed is she? Appendix? Secretariat is TB as well as Man O War, but then you are talking about foundation QHs... I'm confused...

Oh, I see. You really want to post some pics to get suggestions on what stud fits her the best. It's nearly impossible to suggest anything without seeing a horse.

Would love to see pics...

As a general rule, height doesn't matter (IMHO) in regard to how well a horse will move, rather how WELL he is built.

However, if your mare is slightly built, I would not even consider breeding to a stallion more than a hand or so taller than her...the risks to her health, from having a much too large of a baby are too great. Same with a stallion who is really 'broad' in build...Just be careful of what you breed her too, especially because she is on the smaller side.

I totally and completely agree with this post.

Well, what are you looking for in the foal? Depending on what you want, will determine the type of stallion you are looking into. My opinion. If you don't want a Warmblood, or a Thoroughbred, simply don't breed her to one. Although, if you breed her to a Quarter Horse, and the outcome foal is not what you were breeding for.. Then you shouldn't breed her to a Quarter horse.

What is it you want to do with the foal? What discipline. The mares breeding is all over the place. These days if you are going to breed you need to breed with a purpose in mind.
