Outside opinions on stud for my mare!
I am so beyond excited! I've been trying to breed my Z baby for three years! I wanted a sport horse, so I was breeding her to a big Waps Spot horse. But then decided I wanted a working/ranch horse. I looked for 2 and a half years to find the one I'm looking at now! And everything is already lined up, and I really can't back out now. My mare, Impulsive Lucy, is 12. The last year you are supposed to breed a maiden mare. Plus, her injuries from birth are starting to catch up on her, she's already retired and she only showed for 2 years heavy. She's out of Impulsive Zipper, champion pleasure horse on the Appaloosa circuit.
The horse I'm looking to breed her too is a registered Quarter Horse, from Oklahoma. It is a acceptable breeding, even though I'm crossing breeds, I already checked! I can't remember his lines at the moment (Darn short term memory issues!) But he's owned by a friend of mine down the road. I see him every week at least twice a week. He's built AMAZINGLY! I fell in love with him! Teddy bear ears, BIG soft eye. Can't even tell he's a stud! He's a soft flea bitten grey color. No arthritis issues, lamnitis, back problems. He's as sound as my 4 year old at 28!
I haven't had much of a outside look on this whole breeding though, and thought I could see what you guys thought of him since everyone on here has had amazing insight for me so far on other things! So what colors you might think it could produce? Tips for breeding with maiden mares? Good idea/Bad idea?
I only have pictures of my mare, as I am not on my home computer.. I will add some tomorrow of the stud!
Yes, I know her hindend muscles are lacking in these photos.. I got into an accident and was unable to work her like I normally do!
Thanks ahead of time for any tips/ ideas/ thoughts!
