    For what it's worth, I think any horse who excels at what they are asked to do can tick off the "proven" part of breeding requirements, even if that proof has been shown out of a show ring instead of in one... the thing to remember is to set a 'goal' for what you are producing, and to improve on the parents.

    I can see both sides of this fence.

    I am holding off breeding my favorite mare because I don't know if I will be able to care for the baby and train it during its lifetime.

    On the side - I had my pony bred when I was a kid and kept her baby until she passed away at the age of 30. It was always a good feeling to see in the daughter the same physical traits and some of the same personality traits as the mother.

    I'm really going to miss not having a baby from my mare I have now but I feel that since she is 22 years old she is too old to take a chance with. I'll just enjoy her all I can while I do have her.

    Reiner, Belle looks quite a bit like your Gracie, only heavier muscled.

    Your golden is gorgeous!

    Here is my male, Sly. He just picked up a horse poop and gave a horrible face!

    One of my girls, Luckee. She's my all around buddy girl- loves to go horseback riding (she walks!) and rides on the 4 wheeler with me. Has helped me herd sheep and move cows.

    He is a cutie. Too bad you are not closer. It is so hard to find dark Goldens.
