Talking I appologise..

I appologise if i made it sound like you can grab two horses of spots and splashes and if i they have a good temprement you can breed a great horse...
Thats not really where i was coming from- obviously i didnt represent myself well in first post. I dont under any circumstances suggest that anyone should start breeding horses of inferior confirmation. That is no place to start! I would never do that.
I know i mentioned temprement ALOT because thats something that was important to me, and a great characteristic in my paticular horses. I bred two horse of great confirmation and type, as well as temprement. They have good backgrounds of family health etc. The mare is my own that i also bred, i know alot of the background and history there of grandparents etc. The stallion, although i made it sounds like it was some horse from down the road, was a qaulity stallion from imported cutting blood lines well known from throwing good comfirmation, solid bone and quiet foals. I was lucky--- he only happened to be there as some people in my local area had just sourced him from out of state to open a paint horse stud. The blood lines were qaulity some of the best in this country and there was little chance of the leathal white gene.

Alot more thought went into the whole affair than the way that i made it sound, sorry if ive given anyone the wrong idea. Of course you need to do research and put alot of thought and planning into breeding any horse. Including your facilities, your own abilities and wheather or not you are capable of, or have access to some one who knows how to handle young horses - including the breaking in process. Too many people breed horses that they and incapable of training.

A good horse, is any colour. BUT it needs to be physically and mentally capable of what you your going to ask of it.

This is a horse that is about to enter middle school.

Cannot be registered as any given breed.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
