[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.

3 stars in each Should be possible but it wont be a 50/50 combo - Its going to have to be crazy - I worked so hard to get my 2 star's... Like about 12 generations of playing...

After a mad breeding dash today, I've got my first all-starred PONY!! Hooray!
[http://www.howrse.com/elevage/fiche/?id=9709872]Shetland SuperMutt[/url]

I kinda went the long way around to get her. With good enough purebreds parents, you can get a first-gen all-star off a straight Shetland/Friesian cross. But that's going to throw Friesians 50% of the time, of course. (Friesian crosses = love, don't get me wrong: they compete like a dream!) Anyway, I muddled it up a bit to try to get a breeding pair that will always produce SuperMutts that present as Shelties. She's not as good as she could be because good blupping practices were cast aside in the rush to get there, but oh well. She's still pretty nice!

This mix shows something else interesting: a foal's species is determined by their dominant breed, not the species percentage. My filly presents as a pony, even though she is 60.3% horse.
Yup, it is a lot of fiddling and tweaking. No easy shortcuts. The hardest skill to bring up is trot because the other skills go down when trot goes up. I am hoping to get 2 stars in trot in about 2 or 3 generations from Shifting Lights. I have to figure out how to get there from here first though. More time to spend with my spread sheet.default smiley (lol)

That's awesome Eponym!
It isn't as easy as it looks to accomplish a decent all star.

I was right about my mare, she will be good in Gallop when finished, and i believe she will do awesome in Show Jumping
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 03:39:14

CoC-I might need a twin if you breed your mare to a paint default smiley :-))

By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 05:21:03

I guess Morgans do not increase much in trot, she only gained like 30 skill!default smiley :'( She just got 1000 skill, but after rides and a few lessons-

Izy Fizy, I've bred a few of those with this affix default smiley (lol) - 5 Areas ★rd
I'm still going to be breeding those 5/6 ones as I wish to relax on this game and am quite happy with them. Most of the offspring will be up for sale when I start breeding them again default smiley ;)

My horses that I've previously mentioned, all have skills in 5 areas, therefore they have that affix. Might need to change it soon though as the higher GP'd purebreds are on their way to a greenstar in 5 areas. Have no idea what to change it to though default smiley :p
