If you want a palomino, the simplest solution is to buy one.

I dont want a palomino that was an example.. I thank one person for being FRIENDLY for once. So many rude comments to a simple question. I probably wont even breed her. `She won't end up dead. She has a beautiful conformation and a good temperment as well. If you have something rude to say keep it to yourself mkay.

Not one single person has been rude, or said she's going to end up dead :roll:
However since you want to claim palomino was only a example how about you post a complete post stating what you'd like out of her instead of very few details...people might be more likely to help you in the way you want.

One more question...


Is your other thread about the 'starved arab mare' the same horse you now call a quarab? Because I'm against breeding 'rescues' of any sort.

Which one? She was starved WAYYYYYY back when I first bought her but now she is plump and healthy. I dont care for your opinion on rescues anyway.

That may be, but you did ask for opinions, and I'm giving you mine ;)

FRIENDLY opinions. Not how you are against breeding rescues. People breed hideous starved horses all the time in South America and Mexico and im sure somewhere here in the U.S. I don't understand why everyone is coming on me for a little question on what would bring some color into my barn.

No one is being rude, except for you. If you want guaranteed color in your barn buy a foal from the auctions and that way you know you wont lose your mare giving birth, or lose the foal...or end up with another plain sorrel.

so while this statement might be true.. does your saying that really mean you consider yourself on the same level as people who do those things?

people are "coming at you" because they see you asking a question about doing something they consider unwise. no different than if you said 'i want to jump my bicycle off the roof of my house. what kind of bike has the best shock-absorption?' imo (and those of others here, it seems), that action is just as inadvisable as breeding your mare would be.

you said your mare has good conformation and a great temperament. that is wonderful, but that isn't even the minimum requirement in my opinion of what a horse needs in order to be bred. what skills does she have that make her the best of the best and show she deserves to have her genetics passed to the next generation? what kind of show record does she have? have you tested her for the common genetic defects (often recessive) in her breed to make sure you don't continue the problem?

my suggestion to you would be to continue to love and ride your mare and not breed her. if you want a young horse, buy what you're looking for. no risk for your mare and you know you are getting exactly what you want. also much cheaper to buy a young horse than to breed one.


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

i couldn't agree with any of this more. there is an abundance of horses out there on the market currently flooding this country (we won't even go to the rest of the world as the OP already mentioned) and i believe the OP would be best served to spend her money on a foal that at least some real history is known instead of breeding a horse for no better reason than "adding color" to her barn. i say this with the best of intentions - just buy what you're looking for instead of breeding in the far fetched hopes of getting something even remotely close to your goal.
