Going to breed to this stallion!!!!!
I have a 10 year old maiden mare that i have decided to breed.
Her past is pretty colorful
She was a race horse, barrel horse, jumping horse, pleasure horse, roping horse and then a barrel horse and trail horse.
I bought her 3 years ago from a roper in Washington. He did well with her but informed me that her previous owners were very abusive to her.
they twitched her ears and beat her face and body. she also may have been roped because she has a nasty rope burn scar on her back fetlock.
I bought her knowing what i was getting into.
She was very headshy and ear shy and would not any man come close to her except that roper. (im a woman so gaining her trust their wasnt too bad.)
She was also terrified to walk through gates (a couple little girls walked her through a bowgate and she got caught up on it (horrible accident)
Anyways, i wanted to give you guys some input on her before you gave your opinion on this stallion i have chosen for her.
Here is a couple pictures of her:
Here is my mares pedigree:
Ima Dimmers Double Quarter Horse
Here is the link to the stallions website:
I know it looks weird me breeding my speed horse to a sport horse but i think i would get a really good cross. i plan on doing whatever the offspring is built for and what ever its heart is set out to do.
Looks like it should be a good mating.
He sure is a looker - wonder what color you'd get with that silver dilute gene? Hmmm
thanks everyone!!!!!!! my other forum reall got after me about the combination......
With color (its only icing on the cake of course) if my mares tests come back and she is heterozygous agouti and homozygous black than i would get either
37.50% -Silver Bay
12.50% -Silver Dapple
Hoping for a silver bay but any of thoughs colors would be nice....
like i said, color is the icing on the cake for me...im looking at more performance and confirmation
Thanks again for your replies!!!!
I absolutely love him! He is very gorgeous and he looks like he has a great mind and it looks like he passes it on to his foals!!:D Excellent choice in my opinion:-P
thank you so much!!!! i think it is a good match too. im hoping to do some cutting with the offspring but since the stallion is sport horse bred, im not sure it will work, either way, i will love my new babay and would not trade him for the world!!!!!!!!
He is a looker and it looks like he is good at passing that silver gene right along also! Yep, I am a silver lover if you can not tell!
SOOO!!! I think you should still try cutting!:D Especially if the baby likes it when he is grown up. I
SOOO!!! I think you should still try cutting!:D Especially if the baby likes it when he is grown up. I have always wanted to do cutting! It looks like so much funn!:-P
i have been wanting to try cutting for a long time.....i would do that with my mare, but in her 10 years, she has been taught everything from lots of different people and i think her mind is shot. i originally bought her as an allaround but the more i work her, the more i am seeing that she can only grasp one dicsipline.... (i bought her october of 2005) oh well, i love her and she will make me an awsome baby!!!!
She loves cows too!!!!! too bad she cant grasp the cutting:-(
thanks for everyones comments!!!!!!!!!!!
