    Foal
    I'm very sorry this thread has alarmed you all !!
    You see, when my little sister told me that she had posted something in my profile in the middle of a fight, I instantly freaked out and demanded her to tell me where it is...
    My sister loves horses right, but she is quite young and doesn't know enough to have her own and of course she wants a foal, so she has her heart set on breeding my mare! And she figures I can just look after it for her.
    I have taught her a bit but she's still learning....

    I will try to keep teaching her things so she doesn't have to ask you all silly questions, or i'll just learn to logout!

    I'm sorry you all wasted your time answering!

    My comment isn't in regard to being purebred anything, it's in knowing the history of my mare, her lines, their attributes and achievements. I don't care if she is half whatever, I just want to be able to trace it back so I can know reasonably what to expect. It is also a hell of a lot easier to sell a papered foal than an unregistered one, but you can always register a paint or some other kind of cross.

    The value isn't in the papers, but the reliable information and knowledge.

    To the OP, I'm glad you don't want to sell your mare willy nilly, but I don't think the question is a silly one. The only way to learn is to ask. :) I'm glad she had the forethought to go onto this forum and ask for opinions on the correct procedure. It speaks volumes for her future. :)

    Your right the value isn't in papers, it's in ability, training, conformation, and the heart of the horse and rider.

    This is a poor comparison. Both the AQHA and APHA allow thoroughbreds as approved outcrosses and both registries have always allowed the influence. Completely different than breeding a random QH cross to a random stallion.

    That's exactly what I mean, you can cross them and still paper them. How is it different your still getting a cross, some crosses are good some aren't.

    I don't think you understand how the registries work. Do you understand outcrosses or advancement out of the appendix registry?

    Oh I do understand how the registries work. All's I'm saying it's still a crossbred.

    Oh, I think most of us "understand". But registration policies don't change the fact that a QH crossed with a TB is a mixed breed cross. The fact that TB's are part of QH roots is not relevant. At this point in time they are different breeds with different muscle composition and different conformations. Arabs are part of QH roots as well, but not recognized as a registerable cross. Registration policies do not supercede genetics...never have, and never will. I don't oppose Appendix Quarterhorses - I like them in fact because of their versatility. But a cross is a cross nonetheless...

    It's not a waste of time. Remember that for every poster there are scores of readers that don't post - some of whom may be considering breeding at some point. It is never a waste of time to have informational discussions where people can access information and opinions to help them make breeding decisions...
