Would you breed her?

I want opinions (Whether it be confo. Or just input).
I have been wondering for a while, would there be a market for this type of horse.
I have a 7 year old mare, she is in training and hopefully soon will be a gaming/reining horse. And if all goes well with training/showing, possibly breeding?
I want to know everyone's opinions.
The only problem is that she is grade (I am told she is registered, but as of now I have no papers). *I am not saying I am going to breed her, I just want to know what everyone else thinks*
What do you think?




*Wanted to add, she was not born with her knee all funky like that, the old owners didn't get her knee treated as it started getting bad, and she has arthritis (What my vet is thinking as of know) so that wouldn't get passed to a foal*

I don't know much about horse conformation, so I can't answer you on that aspect. I do know, I personally would not breed a grade mare. Now, saying that, you said there is a possibility of getting papers on her. If you can do that then I would think about breeding her. I only say this since there are so many grade horses out there for sale. She is a lovely mare, though.

^Yeah, I am currently saving my $ to get my vet out to make sure what is wrong with her, but my vet is thinking arthritis.

I am currently talking to one of my friends that knows the mare and the old owners she told me Demi is registered, but I don't know if that is true.

I would not breed a grade mare ever, especially in this market there is just waaayyyy to many grade horses. Now im not saying grade horses are bad, don't everyone jump on me, im just saying that I PERSONALY would not. But even if you do get papers, I would still not bred her because of her leg deformity, she could pass that to her foal.

quarter horses.....simply the best

There isn't a very big market for grade foals so just considering that, I think you're better off buying a foal than breeding her. On another note, I like the QH stallion but I'm not a big fan of the paint.

Breed her? I don't even know her!!!


I wouldn't breed any horse with a bad joint. If it's genetic I wouldn't want to pass it on and if it was from an injury I wouldn't want her to have to carry the added wieght of a foal.

^I get where you are coming from 100%. But even if she is a proven show horse? (not saying she will get there, but there is hope!)
Her leg deformity my vet told me will more than likely not be passed to a foal. But we will know for sure when I get the second test done on her leg.
