    She looks stock type, which covers a wide range and not just AQHA horses...
    NdAppy this is not necessarily true in all cases. My mare Spice is not technically papered yet, but that doesn't make her a grade... and just because your not sure on your horses age doesnt mean anything either. I mean I had to look back on Spices breeding report to make sure. I thought she was 13 when really she was 14. Even though I didnt know her exact age doesnt mean I don't know 100% of her breeding.

    IMO No papers = grade horse.

    OP also does not know for sure the horse's breeding, only hearsay. I can say my horses are uber special highly breed horses with no papers.... does that make it a reality? No. My mare Phoenix is by a well bred racing QH and out of a grade ranch mare. Does that make me think less of her? No. Does that mean I think she is worth breeding? Nope, not only because her conformation sucks, but she has no papers. You may not be able to ride papers, but papers tell people what a horse should be able to do. Those self same papers tell people if a horse may be predisposed for a genetic disease, etc. Breeding anything without proof in hand what a horse's bloodlines are is asinine. Ther are exceptions to this, but IMO they have to be extraordinary individuals, which IMO for stock horses is extremely rare...

    Thanks for explaining what you meant! From your first post I definitely did not get this from it... but its probably just how I read it. I agree with everything you are saying... as a horse owner it would be irresponsible to deny your horse its best chance possible in life. From where Im from papers unfortunately mean squat, so I have learned alot from this forum, and can definitely see the importance in registration. I thinks this is why I now regret my decision in breeding Spice. Its definitely something I have been beating myself up over. Its a little to late now so I guess all I can do is learn from my mistakes, and make better decisions from here on out.

    P.s. OP sorry for the off topic post :)

    Honey has made no progress towards foaling... she's still looking the same as last time I saw her.

    How far along is she? Do you know when the last day of being bred was? Hope she will decide to drop the baby on the ground before you have to leave for a week again

    I sure hope so!
    I'm not sure of the exact date but it was roughly mid january 2011.

    Also, I thought of something, that I sort of hope hasn't happened. Is it likely (or how possible is it) that our minature appy stallion is the sire and not the pally QH? Honey was running with the cows and most of the horses (including nugget, the mini stallion) up until November.
    Do yous think nugget could be the father? And if so, how likely is it? =O

    So roughly in mid-January she was bred? If so, you might want a vet to come look at her. If it was the mini and she was truely bred, she definitely would have foaled by now. Although it is possible for horses to go a year before foaling, I would still have her looked at. Though my guess at this point, she isn't pregnant.

    So she's going on 12-1/2 months? Are you sure that she's even bred? Was she vet checked?

    And absolutely she could have been bred by the mini. You just never know unless you were with them 24/7.
