Buckpasser - Sporthorse TBs - Possible Breeding
 
I have a TB mare I'm looking to breed for 2013 she is out of a Buckpasser line on her dam's side and a stallion I'm looking at, that is registered RPSI, also carries Buckpasser on his dam side farther back. Was wondering what people thought of this cross or if you had any other suggestions.

My mare is 16.1hh, very well put together, jumps the moon and has a nice natural elevated frame but I'm looking to add a little height and bone to her for a jumper/eventer prospect. Here is her breeding R Mischievous Lady Thoroughbred

The stallion I'm looking at is RPSI, he's 17.1hh and is standing with Flying Colors Farm. He is a son of Voltaire and is a pinto. I don't usually breed for color but I like him and his breeding, the color is just icing on the cake. His name is Colaire and his breeding is Colaire Rheinland Pfalz

Thanks in advance!

We need pictures of both ;-)

First of all, the stallion was never approved anywhere before he was gelded so you will only be able to get a certificate of pedigree on the foal. We do need pictures of the mare (I know what the stallion looks like) before saying yea or nay to the match.

I like seeing Buckapsser in a pedigree, but it will be so far back in the resulting foal, it probably makes no difference with that amount of linebreeding.

Hoping to one day breed my TB mare for a sporthorse, so subbing to gain some knowledge. :lol:

I like that he has TB, especially the Buckpasser line, as well as that he's taller. I'm not looking for anything upper level, I want something that can jump 3' and maybe do 2nd level dressage. I want to breed something that if for some reason I can't keep it then it will interest someone else as a project. I'm open to other stallions but I would like something taller, something that's not going to kill my budget and color would be great. This is my mare like I said she's 16.1hh and fantastically athletic although has some OTTB wear and tear so dressage isn't her forte as she likes to get tight on the flat and can get a little shorter in her stride if you let her.

Nittany, I would think very carefully before breeding this mare - would you think about purchasing an OTT Tb? There are just so many stunning Tbs out there who desperately need a good home. Unfortunately re homing Tbs is not easy s people tend to want warmbloods for competition and many steer clear of Tbs because they think they are 'nutty'.
Personally I would not breed this mare. :-)

I would also be worried about breeding this mare. To me it appears that she has a roach back, I may be incorrect, but then again with the right stallion she could throw a beautiful foal.

I bred a mare with roach back when I didn't really know anything as to what it was and she had a very nice foal. Knowing what I know now I wouldn't have bred her, it put a lot of strain on her.

That is my concern also Roundpen. The roach back combined with the fact her back appears to be very short also for a Tb mare.

you should try a few of the auctions or rescue in PA. you may be able to find a weanling or yearling with the lineage you want, for less money than it takes to breed, and care for a foal until it is two or three and ready to start training.

I would second what Stevenson said. As much fun (and pain) with raising a foal, to keep your mare sounder over a longer period of time I would pass breeding her. With my mare after she foaled she was no longer sound for even a medium type riding, very very light was all she could take.

I must say that your mare looks kind and you two make a good pair though ;)
