Trakehner/Arabian Cross

Hi Everyone,

I am going to be breeding my purebred Arabian Mare to a Trakehner stallion by the name of Hadrian.
I have attached some pictures. What do you think?
The stallion is 17'2, the mare is 15'2.
Thanks!! Sarah

I know nothing about breeding...other than what I've read on here and the little bit of research that I've done myself within the past couple of weeks, but that is a beautiful stallion.

ooooh...i don't even like chestnuts,but he really caught my eye. Very flashy! Don't know about trakehner bloodlines at all so I have no idea on the cross. Just wanted to say he is perty :)

What do you think?
What do I think about what? The compatibility of mare and stallion from a conformational standpoint? The idea of crossbreeding? The idea of breeding at all in this economy and current state of affairs? The idea of the possible outcome of the pairing in terms of athleticism, discipline, color?

You've already decided to do it, so the opinions of others is irrelevant. So, I'm really not getting the point of your post at all.

I know how you feel, and I agree. But OUCH.
I'm sorry and I don't want to stir the pot, but I also believe if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all. What truly WAS you poin of even replying?

By the way OP, the Stallion is Gorgeous.

Ouch.
Just wanted a conformational opinion...I don't think there is any harm in me asking.
I don't understand why you are so harsh. Are you Mercedes from The Mane Street? If it is you, I have heard terrific things about you and your knowledge of horses - I would expect that you would want to share your insight, not be rude to me.

If my initial post was not clear, I apologize, yes, I would like a conformational opinion.

Sorry..I don't have any comments regarding conformation or about the trakehnar breed, but I did want to say while I'm not a big fans on sorrels/chesnuts, he's gorgeous! Congrats.

I should also say this horse is just for me - an amateur dressage horse - I have no plans on breding again or selling the baby.

I think that that was uncalled for Yes, she could have made her post more clear from the beginning but no need to bash her so harshly right off the bat.

BTW, OP, the stallion and mare are both good looking

Nothing I said was 'not nice'.

I asked relevant questions of the OP so as to,

1) get a better understanding of what exact opinion was being asked for,

2) to get a better understanding of the motivations of the OP, since it seemed contradictory and illogical to ask opinions about a decision that's already been made.

Now, what was your point of posting a completely irrelevant, and off topic post? For someone claiming to not what to stir the pot, you've sure dipped your spoon in, eh?
