Everyone has to start somewhere, if I were a breeding expert I'd much rather people started as you did than start as many other top "experienced" breeders continue to operate!
I'm assuming he'll be keeping his bits with such a lovely personality?
I hope he's the start of a wonderful new line! He really is 'best of the best'.
I have tried my best. I'm not the type of person to just jump in randomly. I enjoy the learning/challenge part of it actually.
Yes, there are always those who aren't the best examples, so it is imperative to find those who are.
His bits are still safe..
He is excellent quality to begin with, but his demeanor also earns him the right to remain intact. He would be a stellar cross with my mares in the future..which was my plan with this breeding to begin with if he did turn out as I thought he would. If he falls apart or becomes silly, then I will revisit this. I also hope he can continue his father's excellent breeding as his book is closed; there are not very many Phara- bred horses out there.
Thank you for your encouragement EHOD; I think he's the best of the best so far as well! Appreciate the kind words!
Here's his Daddy, Golden Ecstasy, who he inherited his brilliant movement and amazing disposition from. (Though momma Chevelle also is no slouch in those areas) Golden Ecstasy's owner, who is a friend, remarked that Psynny is actually better than his sire. A high compliment indeed.
