I was thinking after smrobs grade horse thread. How well do you know your horses you breed. Im talking like blood, past problems, the way the sires foals are, the way the dams foals are. What is a good cross and a bad cross for them. Do they have a good chance of making it in what you are breeding them for?
My mare has old bloodlines. She has ncha money but not much, and has aqha points and is a great penning/sorting horse. She is a lenas jewels bar, and bob acre doc grand daughter. Her sire was a good cutting horse in the area, BUT his foals arnt good cutter they are way to cowy, and want to chase the cows instead of holding there line. They make amazing penning, sorting, roping horses but not cutters.
Her dam don't have alot of foals yet but they are making great roping, and working cow horses.
There historys don't have any hypp or herda. And my mare has been tested.
But if I bred her for cutting the foal may not work out and be worth as much, but I did breed her to a highbrow cat son that has aqha points in penning and sorting. And the foal will be aqha incentive fund foal. So she will be well looked for in the aqha world because of the incentive funds.
