I have a mre that I will be vary busy with this next year or two with with reining training, shows and clinics. As well as starting two of my own colts and putting miles on other people horses. Have her bred this year will give her a break and alow me time for the rest.
    Wait...you say you have too many horses..but you are going to breed your mare. Now, I know your not stupid, but you do realize that will give you ANOTHER horse. If I were in your situation this is what I would do..Give your mare a little pampering, some spoiling, and time off..work with a few of the other horses and if they do well I would sell a few..That also gives you money...and if you sold some of your other horses you would A. Have a good bit of money to go and BUY a killer little prospect that you already know all about it. B. When the other horses were sold you could spend more time with your mare and the new really nice prospect.. That is a WAY better idea to me..

    K sorry, I am selling my two two year olds as soon as they are started, and my other mare once she is startedo n the brrel pattern and has some miles on her. Then I will just be left with Bazel and dooly. So then I will have plenty of room for one morelittle guy! :)
    And yes as much as I agree with your idea, the hole point of this foal is that I want one from this mare. For my self

    I can respect that..and I do understand about wanting to breed your mare, I want to breed mine too, but it is a long way from today and you can already see I have very high standards...I have to have it down to a T perfection lol.

    As long as you've seriously considered everything that could go wrong..I'm a very cautious person when it comes to breeding and it seriously bothers me when people just jump in because they love their mareand want a cute foal so it can be just like her - not..seriously doubtful that's going to happen in most cases...and it irked me a little that you even said that you were against breeding grades but you want to yourself..Bazel is your little mare right? If you do breed her I would just be on top of everything and make sure she is getting the BEST..from vet care, feed, hay, minerals, supplements, pasture care, and having everything ready when she's getting close to foaling..I mean perfect..I would be prepared for ANYTHING lol especially if something goes wrong...If you do go ahead and breed her I wish you good luck and I truly hope everything goes well for you...Just do a ton of research and look at many different stallions before making your decision..not picking the first one that came along and he's pretty..

    K.... this entire situation makes absolutely NO sense to me... if you already have to many horses and none of them are broke why and the heck would you want another one, and risk the only trained ones life? I can't be to hypocritical because I bred my APHA mare when she wasn't regisetered but in my situation that's what worked for me... I can totally relate to your " I want a foal from her" way of thinking but when you literally say you have to many un used horses already... I just can't understand why you breed. You should probably rethink your entire plan.

    Awe thanks DrumRunner :)
    Banman if my post came off as a bashing... my apologies. I have no doubt your mare has the potential to produce a quality baby, its just when you said you already had to many horses than you needed you kind of hurt your own cause. I agree with DrumRunner, that this is SUCH an important decision and should be EXTENSIVELY thought out. I know how easy it is to get caught up in the potential thought of a cute little foal from your favorite mare.

    I just have a few questions. What do you want out of the foal? What is your goal when you think of breeding your mare?

    Your mare is very nice, but she's a barrel horse. And your wanting to cross her to a western pleasure horse? Is your goal to get an all arounder or are you looking at using the foal for western pleasure or barrel racing?

    Personally, I wouldn't use that stud on her if she was my horse. Because, for the obvious reason that she is a barrel horse and he is WP. If your wanting a pleasure foal out of him/her, chances are it isn't going to happen. And if your wanting a barrel horse out of her/him, chances are that isn't going to happen either. My thinking is that your going to end up with a mediocre foal that isn't really going to excel in anything particular because it doesn't have the right breeding to go in a specific direction.

    I guess I'm just confused by the stallion that you have chosen for this specific mare.

    Ok they are green broke, when I say broke I mean like finished work horses. And lika I have said many times, I have had foals before and mares bred, good quality registered mares. I am selling all my horses but two of them. And I do not need to rethink my plan, this was not AT ALL spur of the moment I have bin debating this for a year or so now.

    I just want to add that breeding to a stallion that is homozygous for a pinto pattern does not in any way guarantee colour. All it guarantees is that the stallion will pass on the GENE for the pinto pattern he is homozygous for. There is no way to guarantee that the resulting foal will have loud colour - plenty of horses that have a pinto producing gene have it restricted to just "normal" white, such as socks or stars.

    Good point CLaPorte, What are your plans for the foal?


    BTW - CLaPorte, I despise typing your usernae..I always have to retype it like three times..and scroll back up to make sure it's correct. What the heck does it mean?
