GH.. it seems you have figured out the cost, the risk of losing your mare or losing the foal, you could go and purchase a foal by the stallion of your choice, but the con to that is the dam would not be your mare. You might be able to find a yearling or 2 yr old that is registered with bloodlines that you like. You could also save one from auction/slaughter .
Someone had commented that it was no ones business, which seems quite odd, as you posted the original comment asking for opinions. Good luck to you , in whatever decision you make.

Goldenhorse have you seen the arabian stallion Matt Dillon? He is a very good reiner. Shalom

If you consider a half Arabian, why not talk to Pat/ Dreamcatcher Arabians on here, she's got that REALLY nice cremello QH stud who would produce a buckskin with Emmy......

Register the foal half Arabian and sell, at least started, for GOOD money, from what I notice.

You see that is what is funny, I know that I could breed Emmy to Empres, and get a really nice Arabian, but I have never been able to convince myself why I would want to put another Arab, even a beautiful one, I have enough beautiful horses and couldn't justify that breeding.

Breeding a using horse, that I can see, and yes it would probably net me a better return, to have a part bred Arab rather than a pure bred.

Goldenhorse you can have a purebred arabian that is more than a pretty head.
All mine are functional. Stay away from certain lines bred for a pretty head and you will find plenty of good correct and functional arabs. Now I too breed half arabians and the Qaurabs here are athletic and we use them for ranch work. They have the power of the QH and the stamina of an arab. When working a hundred head of cows and their calves in pastures of 100 acres or more they get the job done. Check out Matt Dillon if you want a reiner. Al Marah arabians has more stallions too.
