I actually just found a great horse on craigslist in my area. A nice big palomino paint gelding. I think I will look into him a little more. He's a Quarter Horse as well. Hm I think about him. Thanks for the advice.

*tilts head* Just thinking this. You said you got her from a rescue correct? Don't good rescues have a no breed policy?

That was priceless! I am so against breeding of anything unless it is breeding the best to the best.

Honestly. I'm not sure yet. I still need to do my research. There is a Quarab registration program online if I could get the address and find one near I will go there.

To SOME mutts or half breeds are useless. To others they are their prized possessions. Such as mine. I don't care for the best of the best. I don't want a nice fancy horse. Something that could be my friend and show me the trails is all I care for.

There are waaaaaay too many 'mutt' horses out there for you too feel the need that pookie needs to reproduce. Enjoy her as she is, and buy a foal from the auctions... guaranteed color!

You just have to think of the what ifs. What if something happens to you? What if you have to sell the foal? Where is a grade foal going to go in this market?

I don't know. They obviously didn't mention anything about it. I wouldn't be posting this then. I'm NOT breeding her. I'm going to go buy some other horse to be her companion and to make me happy as well..

Then why not buy that?

My mutts are my prized possessions... Would I breed them? Not a chance in heck. It's not worth the risk of ending up with a horse I can't stand to "keep a piece" of one of my mares.

You can get a nice registered horse for cheap to be your trail horse. Just saying. My mare is a Paint/QH and technically a mutt, but they're extremely similar breeds and she's registered with the APHA.

If something comes up, it's easier to sell a registered horse than a grade.
