Just for fun...
Out of boredom today hubby and I discussed breeding Gracie. We both realize that is not the best idea even though the both of us thought of doing so.
She has been about as tough as they come pulling cattle that weighed as much as her and out pulling horses much larger than her. She was raised in a feedlot and as handy as they come for sorting and will line out after one when it comes to roping outside. She does get a wound tight in a roping box but can do that too and been shown a little.
Anyhow the argument came when the hypothetical question came what would we breed her to? Hypothetically we would like a colt/filly with the same disposition with just more size. After all, she is a delicate little flower at 14.1 and about 950 lbs....LOL...so just pretend if this was your mare and you wanted a baby that could do it all, ranch work and do a little in the show pen who would you breed her to?
(just remember you may be saving a marriage or causing a divorce...LOL...no pressure....)
Here are some pics(not correct conformation pics of course!) of Gracie and a link to her breeding.
