That is fine... I love some mutts and my own horse is grade. BUT I would never think about breeding him. The owners that did breed him planned on keeping him forever...guess what? It didn't happen.... I bought him when he was 9 things happen and he could have easily ended on a dinner plate.

I have heart problems ... the one thing I insured was the placement of my horse if I don't outlive him. He is my boy and I love him without papers but that sure wouldn't help his placement.

I see you are at least rethinking your breeding. As far as the designer breeds? What do you think they are getting out of it? Lining their pockets is all that I can see. Very sad and who pays the price?

Well not technically a mutt. Unless the APHA has changed their breeding one parent can be a TB or a QH and the horse is still able to be registered an APHA

ok - all I wanted was a decent horse that I can have fun with and to be my buddy. I spent almost a YEAR looking at horses before I (purely by luck) happened across my colt. And you know what - he's still nicely put together and will be registered within the month. And i'm pretty sure I spent only a fraction of what it would have cost to have bred a foal that i'd have no idea what it was going to turn out like.

The OP did say she was going to look into a horse for sale on craigslist and will not be breeding her mare.

Hopefully this is the case since obviously if all you want is colour, you should just buy it.
