QH breeding

So I'm starting a new thread, that is going to stay on topic! Thanks

I'm planning on breeding my mare, now I've been thinking and I would like to breed her to another QH, either a racing type (to give it the edge), or a more uphill build. Oh and we live in CANADA.
Here is the link to the pedigree: Royal Badland Sprint Quarter Horse

And here are some photo's:

Didn't you get at least 3-4 pages of people saying that your horses conformation wasn't worth breeding?

O my god give it a rest. She isnt going to change her mind if she wants to bred her mare than that's her choice. Her mare is what alot of foundation QH's look like! So just because that's what most look like they should just completly stop breeding foundation QH's and wipe them out??! Hmm im not finding any race bred QH's in canada but ill keep looking.

All I want to say is no, it's not because she looks Foundation QH bred. I really quite like the foundation look.
She has what I call "fatal flaws" for breeding; that is, conformation that in my eyes should be avoided: in this mare's case, she is back at the knee, downhill, and has a weak hindquarter. 3 "fatal flaws."
That is just my explanation, and I will not be replying in this thread again.

I think she's got some suitable foundation QH conformation. I don't understand why people bother with this whole, OMG there's already enough homeless horses crap. I'm all for adopting, but come on now. Once a person has their mind set on breeding, it's their decision and ultimatley we can not change that. It's not like she's breeding some fugly QH/TW/Mini cross.

I really like your mare.
I really like this stallion for her, he's got an uphill build, nice shoulder, and on top of that he's pretty! Proven 1D son of Fire Water Flit-AFFORDABLE Breeding Fee | Equine.com

Here's a cute hunter TB sire I like as well.

Okay, you know what? She is a nice looking mare, however, as the horse market stands I don't think you should breed her.

I can deal with her being downhill and weaker in the hind end (I've seen both of these breed out with responsible breeding) BUT when it comes to the legs they have to be NEARLY perfect. Those aren't something that you don't want to mess with. Also....sorry to say but the pedigree just isn't that hot.

Did you see the colt that I posted for $600 out of the champion, $40k+ money earning sire? If a colt of that caliber (sp?) is only selling for $600 (less than half of his breeding fee) what do you think a foal from your mare is worth?

I'm not saying any of less to be mean/harsh/judgemental whatever you want to call it, I'm saying it so hopefully one less horse goes to the meat pen.

SFMoney, it is great to see that the mare is at least paperd. More that what alot of people take into consideration. However, still less than diserable pedigree. I've seen wonderful performance horses that have terrible conformation but they at least have excellent breeding to give them that edge in competition.

And I just had to add that I don't think that she is actually weaker in the hind end, although I would have to see some more pictures to be sure of her standing square and the camera angle straight at her.

Sorry for the double post.
