Horse Bloodline critique (:
 
Since we have miss Brandy's official papers...how do you think her bloodlines are? http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/jesses+poco+surprise Do you think she would be good as a broodmare if/when we retire her from riding?

If you don't already know it, she needs to be tested for HERDA if you are considering breeding her. She's heavy with PB both top and bottom.

If you want a foundation QH foal I see no reason not to breed her judging by her pedigree. good luck. Shalom

Totally forgot about that, Left Hand! I think her previous owners had her tested, but I'll text them to make sure

Stichy 03-08-2013 12:11 PM

Thanks, dbarabians!

I usually like to see the "bigger" horses closer on a pedigree when breeding but your mare definitely doesn't have bad bloodlines, I love the foundation bred horses. Have you done anything with her showing wise? Just because a horse has nice bloodlines doesn't mean they should breed.

Stichy 03-08-2013 12:34 PM

I don't know if she was shown before we got her, but we are training her to be a show horse..I was going to do halter, but I can't cut her mane...It's gotten so long D:

DrumRunner 03-08-2013 12:46 PM

Lol I know the feeling.. I'd show her a good bit before deciding anything, see if she can pass on any skills to a foal, there's just a lot to consider before breeding. Especially if you're wanting a foal you can show in the future.

True. I just joined 4-H so hopefully we can start practicing for shows and stuff.
