no offence, but though I love all my horses dearly, love has little to do with the reason for breeding.
*Mare has good cutting asnd reining confo and bloodlines
* I have every intention of boarding with Trainer on site for up to a year of working cowhorse training
*I own the first foal, and he is a wonderful booy
*Doc Bar this close in a pedigree is hard to find
*Hickory's Indian Pep has NCHA earnings, and has sired money winners, and has the best pedigree match for my mare. Conformation wise, he is strong where she is weak, and vice versa, though neither has GLARING defaults.
*If for some reason it becomes necessary to sell or lease the resulting horse, it will have the breeding and training to easily find a loving caring financially stable owner whether it be bloodstock auction, or private sale.
BTW the reason her first foal was not shown was due to needing a year off as a 2 yr. Old for Jumping a 6 foot stud pen, he skinned his rear legs completely dehiding them. He is now perfectly sound, and being used, however he missed out on his 2 and 3 yr old seasons and wasnt sent to a trainer till he was almost 5. He is now a very smart trick horse, trail horse, and team penner, but will only be shown on a local level and as a kids horse because that's what he likes. BTW he was gelded soon after his accident and would have been gelded after training had he not injured himself.
I know this is lengthy, but I do not want people to confuse me with somone who just wants "a piece of my awesome pet to live on", I am keeping the mare for her whole natural life,( she has paid her own board for many years, I can pick it up now) as well as the 6 yr' old.(He is being leased my neighbor as a trail horse for the spring) I plan on keeping the hypothetical foal it's whole life IF the horse is a good solid using fun horse, otherwise I will sell knowing that I made **** sound judgement in the choosing, training, feeding, and general husbandry of my horse to offer him the best chance at a long happy career.
