Tell us about your 2010 foals!!!

Well ... I hope to have 3 on the way for 2010, once these guys all foal out, get re-bred, get bred for the first time ...

Puchi Trap back to Guaranteed Gold for the 7th straight sibling in a row ...



And:



(and please excuse the dust. They really and truly do go OUT clean, but she has also never met a mud puddle or dust patch that she didnt love ... )

Pearlescent back to Guaranteed Gold for a repeat of this year's first foal for her: (her baby shown at one week of age)



And finally ... this one came rather as a surprise ... ... Faux Finish is being bred to Redwine for her first foal which we hope will be Redwine's first dilute foal out there!



And:



So ... crossing my fingers that all girls co-operate fully and I have 3 wonderful foals to look forward to in 2010 ...

Who else has stallions picked / mares in foal / mares about to be bred for 2010 babies?

What do you do with all the foals? Are you breeding just for color?

Uh no ...

They get sold and go on to performance / show careers. I show some until they get sold, others like Faux Finish go down to my trainer in the States where they show on the line, under saddle and over fences as they get older and others are bought in utero and go in whatever direction their owners decide to pursue with them

Nothing at all wrong, IMO, in breeding fancy, coloured, good moving, good performing athletes with excellent conformation that can stand up to the best that North America has to offer and they just happen to come in fancy colours and markings as well ...

Faux Finish, pictured above, finished as the USEF Reserve Champion 3 year old in 2007. That was against the best 3 year olds in North America that year - Warmbloods, WB crosses, TB's, etc. THAT is what we are accomplishing in our breeding program - breeding athletes that just happen to be very very pretty, with eye catching colouring and markings as well ...

So ... the colouring and markings are the added bonus - not the SOLE reason we breed our mares to our stallion ...

Hope that clarifies ...

TrueColors, I really do like your breeding plans, from what I have seen on this forum and others, you are a very confident breeder that knows the ropes. Congrats! I wish you a very successful breeding season, and healthy babies in 2010.

Me myself? Hard to breed a gelding :P

Yes a mare with a jump and movement like that is obviously getting bred for colour.

Again, hard to breed a gelding :P The breeder I bought my horse from who I am really close friends with is probably re-breeding her jumper mare to the stallion she had an 08' from. That foal was sold before it was born :P I know she has two on the way this spring. And she is hoping to get the lady that half owns and shows her one stallion back riding at Spruce just to get some more breedings booked. She had a baby by c-section so the stallion's been doing dressage for a while :P And she's got her dressage stallion coming out to some shows this year, hopefully they do well and get some breedings booked as well.
I think my mare that I sold as a broody is getting bred this spring, hopefully to a Weltmeyer line, it depends on what semen they get in this year.

You still can try hard!

I have 2 mares, but no intention to breed them. MAY BE I'll breed my paint down the road if she'll be successful at the shows.

KV, I'm not sure anyone in their right mind would want to breed to this:




God he's ugly standing still.... he looks awesome when he's moving though!!
