    I meant to ask about your other mare anyway, since I haven't seen you around here much lately.

    But look into the stallion I mentioned, he seems to produce well.
    And I thought you meant again as in "someone wants to breed a jug head and people are going to go on a jug head hate rant" lol. Or an "again" with someone wanting to breed a made that shouldn't be bred. I was starting to think maybe I truly have lost my mind by entertaining the idea of breeding this mare. I am hoping I get my internet back soon(hurricane arthur did a number on my area still over 80,000 people without power so I can't complain about no net haha). But when I can get on my PC I'll post videos of her. In the mean time I'll snap some better cell pics.

    I love standardbreds and think they are amazing and versatile horses. That said, I don't think crossing standardbreds with other breeds works out well. More often than not they look like train wrecks. The sad fact is that standardbreds are an under appreciated breed and as a result have very little market value. To the point where, several nurse mare contracts, which require the mare is returned to the company in foal, will not accept a stallion as a father/stud. Mostly because they see the crossbred foals as having no value.

    The traits you describe, willing, calm, athletic etc are not traits unique to your mare, that is the standardbred breed. Which is why if you really like the traits of this mare when you are looking for a eventing horse. I would suggest going to sales and buying a young prospect that has the conformation to support eventing. I would not breed I would buy a horse already on the ground.

    Out of curiosity who is your mare out of?

    Told you
    Friend of mine in Germany had a couple of Standie mares and a pure polish, race proven Arab stallion and that combination turned out very well every time. Don't know about eventing, but they're highly appreciated for endurance there.

    I am still head over heels in love with trekehners. But I'm thinking that wouldn't be the best cross for a standie.

    What about Simba Twist?

    If this did happen it wouldn't be for two or three years at least. So who knows what talent will be out there then.

    I really wish I could have bred my old girl. But some recent breeding horror stories scared me away from the risk with her being 21, which would mean she is 22 when she foals. She is enjoying life in semi retirement and is taking my 11 year old student in her first over fences show doing cross tails in a couple weeks. A much better life for a 21 year old mare. She's earned her easy life. I'm trying to buy her last foal. She's 5 now and a beautiful mare doing well in local shows.

    I have a Standie mare. I am not a fan of Arabians, at all. BUT if I was going to breed her, which I am not, I would breed her to an Arabian. That would likely take care of the jug head, anyway. Also, Trakehners have Arabian bloodlines. Just so you know.

    Does your girl have a freeze brand? I am curious about her lineage, and how well bred she is...

    I'll start with I know next to nothing about breeds outside of my own, but this guy gets my vote, nice conformation, great movement, a fantastic head that would hopefully fix the mares head and he has compete successfully is show jumping, dressage and three day eventing. He has a great reputation in this country (and they do do frozen seaman and ship to America) and produces fantastic foals, as an added bonus he is also perlino and homozygous agouti so you would only get a buckskin or a palomino. He is an Akhel Teke.

    Yep I know Trakehners are Arabian blood lines. I just prefer them over Arabs. Btw I honestly love the jug head lol

    Emmy is branded. Her reg name is Emily Putnam. She is out of Cookie Dough Boy. She didn't race much due to an injury and her owners didn't want to freeze fire her to make her sound to race again. I love the owners she came from. They have the horses best interest at heart. Once the horse is done racing they retire them at their own farm until they find a home they like for them.

    Foal
    Personally, I feel like if she's not the best if the best, I wouldn't breed her. Especially if you were planning on selling the foal.
