I'm sure this has already been addressed but i want to know WHY you keep breeding pointless horses?
Now please, don't get me wrong. If your mare or stud has amazing lines, temperament, skills, confirmation, yadda yadda , please go ahead breed your horses and give the world back a nice quality breed of horse. no more saddlebred thoroughbred crosses or miniature ponies with with donkies. please, give us something useful! (btw nothing against those breeds and i dont even know of any miniature / donkey crosses hahahaha)
But seriously, if you want the pleasure of having a young project, go to horsetrader.com go to horseclicks.com go to dreamhorse.com and look for young horses, i've found a free 2 year old TB not broke yet and just halter broke. you want a project? go find one. dont go breeding pointless horses for one.
If you want to work with babies cause theyre just so **** cute? Go work at a breeding farm.
If you want a horse that YOU trained that YOU worked with and that YOU "created" go work at a farm like i am. plenty of yearlings and young horses to be broke. Yea you didnt "create it" but you will be making it who its going to become.
If you want to breed your horse to get a "mini my horse" thats bullpoop. Odds are it will be nothing like your horse. it wont look like her/him and it wont act like her/him. horses are like humans. sure they'll get some traits of its parents, but it wont BE its parents....
I know i'm going to be jumped on for this post but you know what? im ranting. so RWA! come and get me guys. hahah this is my personal opinion and every one is allowed to have their own opinion and feelings on any subject. these are my feelings and my thoughts. just remember if youre going to breed i hope you know what your doing so your mare, foal, stud doesnt suffer the consequences of your stupidity.
thanks. that is all.
