Breeding Help

lynnehall67. I agree. This person sounds very inexperienced. And has, in the near past, asked questions that only a novice would ask. I have nothing against novices - it's how we all begin. However until very recently her profile stated she was an instructor, horse trainer and horse whisperer. Someone questioned that and the profile was changed.

Given her past questions I would emphatically say NO she should not breed. Mainly because I think this requires more thought and planning than has been done.

OK so they have good conformation... No horse has perfect conformation, so what are their faults? if a foal were to get all of the faults from both top and bottomw of the breeding, would it be marketable?

There are a lot of well behaved stallions, and a lot of stallions who can jump. You should NOT breed on those two criteria! You never answered anyone about bloodlines, so I am assuming it is an area one or both are lacking?

I am into QHs, so I am not to familiar with Arabs, but I know MANY people who will NOT buy a horse that has a grey parent because of the high chance the foal will turn grey. There were a lot of greys being sold as blue, and at least QH people want color. I know color is not something to breed for, but it is a consideration in the marketablity of the foal.

I know this is very controversial. but I AGREE COMPLETELY with BUMPER! she has excellent advice and words. that is the best you can do. I say. no breeding, unless the horse is EXTREMELY special. if you just want a horse, go adopt a baby. i am sure you could find a newborn-weanling for sale.

OK, i dont think i made my question clear. My main question was Should I breed my mare that I've only had for 3 months or would it be to stressful on her? I dont think i made my question claer.

Any ways we bred her last night around 7. She did fine during the breed, so i hope it worked [Angel][Angel] !!

We in hand bred them, instead of pasture like i wanted to. We did tthis cause the stallion bulldozes really hard to get the job done, so we wanted to supervise so nothing bad happened to her.

Well, since you already bred her, it might be too late. I would say that nobody is in your situation except you and you know if she is comfortable. If was just giving advice over the internet, I would have to say NO since I am not there.

Palomino

Pinto

Grey

Appaloosa Colour

Dun

I didn't think those were common colors for Arab bloodlines, but who knows anymore. I don't, I guess.

From the color mix on the pedigree, I'd say either another grey or anything is fair game. What are their bloodlines?

Palomino, pinto, dun, and "appaloosa color" are not accepted in the Arab breed. So either the horse in question is not purebred arab or those are guesswork colors.
