Love lilly so much But you knew that anyway ;)

The stud is pure class and I have known some graded sires who should not be stallions as they are completely unsuitable!

Yes I am in Canada. I did put some thought into the breed of stallion I chose so that the resulting foal eill be registered. I could also register if she was bred to a pure bred Arab but stock type horses are definitely more popular in my area than Arabs so if I ever did have to sell, this foal should still be marketable.

My plans for this foal are to compete in lower levels of English and dressage as well as just pleasure riding. Lilly is currently at my parents' farm about an hour away from where I live. Once the foal is old enough to wean, I will be boarding closer to where I live and Lilly will remain with my parents as a horse for them in their retirement. She is very beloved by my entire family and so I thought long and hard about this. This is the only time I plan to breed her and so I want to make sure I do everything I can to ensure this baby has the best chances. I'm really looking forward to the experience of training from day 1.

You are clearly a wonderful and considerate owner who adores her mare, you don't need to explain yourself to anyone xx

Also, what would you define as grade? I always think of grades as unregistered and/or unknown lineage. Both Lilly and stud are registered.

I apologize for the double posts and the delayed replies. I am currently on my way to Banff for some weekend skiing and my phone is a little clumsy on this site. And speaking of fiance, I told him this morning that I started a foaling thread for Lilly and his response was "a what?" So I explained it to him and told him as we get closer to the due date there will be udder and va-jay-jay pictures too and his response was "did you say you were posting on horse forum, or horse porn?" My fiance is not a horse person at all, so he doesn't quite understand lol, but he's still supportive anyway.

what registry will the foal be eligble for?

I consider a grade that is any unregistered horse. Or registered only in a color registry (buckskin, pinto, palomino) because its purely based off of color, not breed. But that's just my opinion. If its double registered APHA/Pinto, sure, but just Pinto...Not so much IMO.

Half-Arabian...Im kind of on the edge about that...Its still a 'cross-breed' But there are high quality horses there. (as well as in the color registries, but...you get what Im saying...Right?)

Totally get what you're saying. Lilly is registered pinto, however as you can see, not by her coloring lol. Her dam was an Anglo-arab and sire was registered as a paint and it was the paint that let her into the pinto registry. Even though she is registered pinto, her lines are documented and traceable to the beginning of time... or something like that. Nonetheless, she is a good solid mare with a fantastic mind and just enough Arab sass.

ETA - if you really want to get into the nitty gritty of her breeding, her dam was actually 7/8 arab and 1/8 thoroughbred. Lilly is technically 1/2 paint, 7/16 arab and 1/16 thoroughbred. ... but that is a considerable mouthful.
