What's a good breed to x w/Kuhalian Polish Arabian mare?

I've been considering breeding a little Polish Arabian mare I own. Her site is Ganges. She's 14.3 or 15h. Would like to breed her to a larger Irish Sport Horse but it doesn't work that way does it? You want the sire to be the smaller of the two so te baby isn't too large for the mother's pelvis. Curious as to your alls thoughts. Wanting to add her good temperament, intelligence and athleticism/endurance to a larger horse with better jumping abilities and a little less sensitive to extraneous stimuli.

In case you didn't already notice I know NOTHING about breeding.

My personal opinion? If I had a mare like that I would stay pure, IF I would consider breeding....there are so many Arabians and half Arabians, needing homes....and quite a few in the feedlots.

As much as it would be wonderful to have a foal of your own (believe me, I keep having the same thought with my Arab mare), DH is right. There are WAY too many unwanted Arabians and half-Arabians out there in need of homes. I'm relatively sure you'd be able to find an unwanted youngster to fill your need for raising a little one.

Thanks, I agree about the breeding. Just fun to daydream. Thanks for the reality check.

I, too, would stay pure. BUT....before I'd make any suggestions along those lines, I'd want to see a picture of her and her full pedigree. Since she's Kuhaylan, I picture a more muscular, masculine looking horse, typical of the older pure Polish. So, off strain alone, I'd recommend a Dahman or Saqlawi in strain stallion, but really you need to see the horse in front of you and the pedigrees of all concerned.

I liked Ganges very much when I saw him, considered breeding my pure Polish mare to him but never managed to make it happen.

You do not need to make sure the sire is smaller then the dam for the mares pelvis/foaling issues. Nature takes care of itself and very rarely will a foal be too big to come out. Clydesdales can be bred to regular sized mares or thoroughbreds without any complications. Males are larger then females in most every species of animal. Nature is funny that way.

I also would love to see a picture of your mare :)

I'd rather see one well thought out arabian foal...than someone pumping arabs out like a puppy mill.

Here are a few pics I've taken of Sophie in the past 2 months. I'm trying to get the ones with her getting used to wearing a tarp - poor thing. But her confidence level has really gone up. Especially after she conquered the creek. She was so scared to go in the creek her legs and whole body shook. We almost aborted the lesson early but when the trainer got ahold of her she calmed down and went into the creek, even splashed around and played in it. She walked back to the barn that day like she owned the world. Has been a different horse ever since. I love her. <3







This one below she's kind of standing at an odd angle because we were all just getting to know one another and she was tense.

She is such a pretty girl and of very good, carefully planned breeding.
If she was mine and times ( read "market") were different, I wouldn't hesitate breeding her, but, as I stated earlier, I'd stay

I notice she has wrapped you around her little hoof already
