[Info] Cross breeders

Finally a post just for us cross breeders. The purpose of this topic is for cross breeders to have a place to discuss their crossbreeding programs and to share crossbreeding secrets and advice with others who may be interested in giving crossbreeding a try. Feel free to talk about your crossbreeding programs and your achievements and failures in crossbreeding.
Please remember to follow the rules of the forum and be informative and helpful. default smiley :-))

Reminder to all.

Please do not advertise sales or items wanted in this topic. I can turn a blind eye to the covers being offered (as long as they are not blatant advertisements) because we are, after all, trying to help each other progress and there is no filter on public covers for searching for crosses, but items sales and items wanted do not belong in any of the public forums and we have a sales forum for horse sales so please, lets keep our topic clean of the ads.

Thanks everyone

There are reasons for rules and everyone is expected to follow them. There will be no posting of advertisements in this topic and everyone is expected to be respectful. Any disrespect towards fellow players or moderators will not be tolerated. Anyone posting advertisements will receive a forum ban without prior warning. If breaking of rules continues to take place in this topic I will delete it.

Thank you

If anyone has personal issues with another player, or needs something back from another player(items/passes), other than covers/fills-please take it to private pms...anymore posting here will mean an instant forum ban without a warning.

A reminder that this is not the place for trading/buying/selling BMI, horses or advertising or asking for someone to train your horse.
If any of these things occur, you will be forum banned without prior warning.

You're welcome darl

You need to go to your horses' page as though someone else is looking at them, otherwise it will only bring us to our own "my horses" page default smiley ;)

On my old account, I was a crossbreeding junkie. default smiley (lol)

Does anyone else here breed crosses that excel in all areas? I tried that once, it was a wonderful horse. Not quite sure how many stars it had, probably 15 or so.

That link doesnt work... Try this...
Shifting Lights

I too have a 17... All star - I wonder if they would make a good combo?

I wanted to try to do that Limonada! But i gave up default smiley xd

My foundie mare is an Arab... I wonder if I should start crossing this early on. Arabs seem to be more well-rounded overall, but I like the dressage numbers on the IH's and Morgans...
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 01:41:38
if i were you i would wait a few weeks, so you have a good amount of $$
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 01:44:11
I mainly just breed my horses for the heck of it. I default smiley (l) them all. But sometimes I'll breed purebreds.
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 01:48:35
When i finish the mare i posted aove, I think i might breed her to paint, does that sound like a good idea?
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 01:49:26
*nodds* Yes COC! a paint / morgan / irish hunter would be Great!
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 01:52:30
OK Awesomedefault smiley :-))
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 01:54:16
I find arab/paints to be very nice comp horses.
I've skilled quite a few from foals my latest is #1 in the Stamina skills for Paints.

One thing that I did is a Hanoverian/Quarter Horse. Look at my horse Chase. default smiley ;)
I plot my breeding combos in a spread sheet. It was way too confusing and time consuming otherwise. I find all category breeding to be fascinating and very challenging. It helps to use the best gp pure breds or cross breds that you can get. I spend way too much real money and equus to achieve my results.

Thanks for the nice comments about my lad (previous page). I'm only seeing them now as I was working on my next monster morgan, K-T Boundary. She's bolded at 1011 and I'll finish her and cloud her tomorrow. I love crossbreeds default smiley (7)

I agree with you Dr Zig, someone told me they were mutts. Then I got really mad at them and told them I have some cross breeds that could beat your pure breds. Of course then that player stopped talking about them like that - and my best crosses died. default smiley :(
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 02:07:22
Aww! Im sorry chicken! I do admit to calling some of mine mutts , BUT i mean it as crossbred , not in a bad way!
There are a lot of mixed-breed horses out there that are mutts, where any old breed or combination of breeds seems to have been thrown together. They can be fun to try to blup, yet head-wrecking at the same time. The trick to cross-breeding, I suppose, is to identify the specific skill(s) that you want to be top and then mix compatible breeds.

I haven't tried yet but I would imagine that hanos and morgans would work well together. Both are really good in jump and the dressage boost that the morgan would bring to the mix would give you a very nice showjumper, if it was a hano-morgan rather than a morgan-hano.

I very much like the mustang stallion with paint mare cross and have produced some fun horses with that, including my mare Trespass, who is unbeaten in 142 barrel races default smiley (7)

Dr Zig, Soaring Eagle is one sweet cross.
I love cross breeding. Especially if I am trying to achieve a better howrse in a particular skill.
It is so interesting to see how the numbers twist and turn.
Trying to raise the trot levels in an all category howrse is rather challenging to do without losing other skills. I am hoping that I have that almost under control. It is such a balancing act to raise certain skills without causing the others to drop.

I've found that Paint/Appy crosses (stally being appy) do very well in Gallop comp.s in general.

One of my Paint/Appy horses got all 20 wins before he was 5 default smiley ^)

Anyone else tried that cross?
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 02:21:25
I think I would like to cross breed my arabians or quarter horses sometime. Just for the heck of it default smiley :p

Any other breeds go good crossing together with Arabians or Quarter Horses?
Horses in all skills categories were originally referred to as the SuperMutt project before the event of them being on the game actually occurred default smiley ;)
