Oakley/GSR Breeding Thread (APHA horses)

Hi all. I'm pretty new around here, but I frequent other forums with the same handle, so some of you might know me. I'm going to share the same thread that I have on the other sites so you guys can get to know me and some of my horses a bit better.

I bred a horse for the first time in almost 10 years this year and I'm very excited about this foal. This was my first experience with AI and it was eye opening, for sure!

The mare I bred is named Spot Ya Dealing Dirty (aka Oakley) and was bred to the stallion Gentlemen Send Roses (aka Gus)
(Click the links to see their pedigrees.)

They are both Paint horses. Both are tobianos according to the APHA, but are actually toveros genetically. Gus is tested negative for HERDA, OLWS, GBED, and EVA. My mare has not been tested for any of those things, but I am not worried, since Gus is negative. Gus is also homozygous for tobiano, so we are guaranteed a tobiano foal, and could possibly have a homozygous tobiano foal. We are hoping for a filly to keep and show. If we have a colt, it will be for sale, but we are still planning on training and showing it until it sells.

I don't have too many photos of my mare Oakley uploaded right now. This will have to do for now:



See his Website http://harnishhorses.com/gus.htm


So far our main issue has been Oakley's hormones. She has been tested twice, and both times were low, so she had to stay on Regumate. Oakley just had her 60 day ultrasound and is still pregnant! Yay! But, she is also in heat, so the vet is sure that she is still not producing enough of the hormone on her own and will likely have to stay on the Regumate for a little while longer. We drew blood and will probably get the results back in a few days.

Anyway, just wanted to share. Thanks for taking a look!
oh vair oh, BrieannaKelly and MGTS like this.

Congratulations! So so so exciting, sometimes I have the urge to breed my mare, but I know it probably wouldn't be the most realistic decision for me, I would love to breed though, nothing more rewarding than watching those babies grow :)

I can't seem to find anywhere to edit my original post... are we not allowed to do that here? If so, this place is very strict!

Anyway, my original post was edited by a mod to remove the link to the stallion's website. I don't have any photos of him, and I don't steal bandwidth by hotlinking, so if you want to see him, just do a google search for"Gentlemen Send Roses APHA" and you'll find him.

Thanks RRP... I've waited a lot of years for this. :)

Oh, thanks SouthernTrails, sorry for the trouble I've been right from the start! Thanks for your help. :) It's good to know about the timer, I make a lot of typos, but I always reread and try to fix them so I don't look like a total idiot. Glad I canvfo that if I catch it early enough.

Thanks MyLittlePonies. Glad to be here.

I'm laughing at my last post because I was talking about typos and correcting them if I catch them in time and uh... well, I pretty much messed that one up. My home computer's hard drive went out and I was using my Kindle. That thing is almost impossible to type on!

I'm curious as I see this a lot in the stock horse world... And I am not being snarky or trying to be controversial at all, but why are injured unproven stallions kept intact and bred because of their potential for potential?
You have a lovely mare, OP :)

Thanks for the compliment on my mare, JustDressageIt.

I assume you're more on the Warmblood front from your name and that you're comparing the stock horses to that. If that's the case, then yes, you do see this more in the stock horse world and I think it's because of the difference in the registration processes of the two. With stock horses, there is no stallion testing for breeding approval. If the sire is registered and the dam is registered and you pay all the proper fees and submit your paperwork, the foal is registered.

So, if a stock horse stallion is injured before he gets a chance to prove himself, a mare owner is far more likely to take his pedigree and conformation into account. If he's good on those fronts and did look promising before his injury they would be likely to breed to him, especially since he usually stands at a lower fee than a proven stallion. In this case, the stallion has proven that he sires offspring that win in the show ring, so the stud fee is pretty high for the breed.

It's not unheard of in WBs for a stallion to get injured before approval and try to get approved on his offspring. Just much less common. :)
