BlazingFameStables, please search out all the threads on breeding and grades and sport horses here. You are new and WELCOME!! We all aren't as harsh, especially when you are new and don't know everyone and they don't know you.

Lots of debates and opinions have been discussed over the same topics you are bringing up. It gets pretty heated because of the dire horse market and there are loads of people on here with incredible knowledge on these topics. What you are considering would take 100 years and millions of dollars to produce an actual breed.

Please don't take the snappy attitudes as being argumentative or nasty, just frustrated.

Welcome to the Forum!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

I just have to say, you aren't doing yourself any favors comparing your horse breeding goals to the designer dog craze. Anybody with any common sense knows those breeders that mix up mutts and slap a fancy label on them are interested in one thing and one thing only...dollar signs. 90% of these so-called "designer dogs" would have been sitting in a box at the flea market with a big FREE PUPPY sign on it not so very many years ago, until somebody figured out that a new fancy name was enough to con ignorant people out of stupid amounts of money. Breeding horses, and doing it properly, should not even be in the same category as that mess.

I'd rather the OP breed nothing at all, but I say start with something small. Like maybe seamonkeys.

Even those are hard. I couldn't keep my darn brine shrimp alive to save my own life...

Ants are pretty resilient, but I'd rather not have any more of them in the world. If they show up in my house they meet Mr. Can O'Raid.

lol I was the demented kid that waited on a good line to get going, spray them with hairspray, then light it on fire....They pop when they catch on fire.. Just insight if you're wondering.

Dang it, if I'd known that when I was young, I'da tried it! Now that I'm grown up and 'mature', I'm not supposed to want to do something like that. (Checks for hairspray and matches.)
