Friesen losing registration for crossbreeding?
I thought that Friesens lost their registration when bred to outside breeds? Do you still get to tell people they're registered? Or is it just that she somehow hasn't been caught yet? Or am I wrong all together???

Looks to me like she just hasn't been caught yet or she's lying. Seriously, who advertises their 1st Premium friesian stud in frigging Kijiji?

Depends on the registry.

The Dutch Registry is VERY strict, and it's not just the stallions who lose their registrations, but purebred mares can as well if they have a partbred foal.

The German Registry discourages cross breeding, but the horses won't lose their breeding rights/registrations if they do.

Because we live in Manitoba and 90% of the people breeding/owning stallions are a friggin' joke.

Thanks for clarifying!

It's sad. We do have a few REALLY nice operations and good stallions but we unfortunately have a very small time show scene so it takes money and travel to really prove a stallion. It's kind of sad how many people think winning a $3 halter class at Selkirk Rodeo is a determining factor in keeping a stallions nads. Heck, at least they TRY! It's more sad how many people pimp fugly stallions for nothing but color and pedigree. I swear, no statement infuriates me more than "OWN SON OF BLAH BLAH BLAH". OWN son? As opposed to a disowned son? Unowned son? Stepson? It only EVER seems to be a precursor statement to "because this stallion has done literally nothing but eat and crap it's entire life so hopefully someone remembers that his sire won that reining class like ten years ago." LOL

I guess all areas have that, it just seems the "norm" here compared to people who actually know what the heck they're doing and actually campaign a stallion!

I do not agree with cross breeding any mare from a rare breed and IMO can see no reason to cross a Fresian with anything.
Whats the big deal? Cross breeding does not harm the purebreds and as a stallion owner recouping the cost of a stallion and breeding operation .
How the owners make their money is no business of the registries if it is done ethically. Shalom

I will defend advertising horses/stallions on kijiji. Our prairie provinces are huge and kijiji has become a great medium for advertising anything for sale. Good stallions are often many miles apart so by shopping kijiji one decides if travelling so many miles is an option.

Actually advertising on Kijji makes sense, especially if you are aiming for "multidisicpline' market. We all look at it, and we do not all look at all the breed or discipline specific websites(half of which are chronically out of date), alot of horse related events are advertised on it, so again people are on it browsing and it is area specific.
The stud is registered, inspected and actually being ridden which is better than half the stallions people breed because they are a pretty colour or have a big name ancestor 5 generations back.
Freisians aren't my cup of tea so I have no idea which registeries pull breeding approvals and which don't.
