[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.

I'm trying to get high gallop and dressage from them, while maintaining the speed... would thoroughbred/quarter horse be a good cross for that? Or do I need to tweek it a bit and throw in a irish hunter also??
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 16:39:58
I bred my foundie Arab to a IH and got an 8* foal. It has, I believe, 4 stars in stamina, 3 in dressage, and one in gallop.

So now I need to take care of the jumping, speed, and trot. Is there a horse that excels in at least 2 of those areas? Even all 3, possibly?
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 16:41:44
I think that the freisian or the standy excels in trot and maybe speed also...
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 16:42:28
Sounds pretty good to me, you could always add in a hunter if you feel you need to default smiley :)

Here is the link to her...

My Darkest Surprise- 8*

I'll check. I know the Freisian is a big trotter, but I want to see others, too... default smiley *-)
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 16:43:34
Friesians have low speed though, so it'd bring that down..

Limonada+City Kat- to get the link go to your page >> the howrse >> url from that.. default smiley :)default smiley (y)
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 16:47:29
Yaa we can't use the link. It takes us to OUR my horses page. default smiley ;)default smiley ;)

Ooh yaa, I forgot about freisians... I'd try the standys then.
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 16:53:48
default smiley (lol) Yeah..
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 16:59:54
Also I'm going to try irish hunter/paint horse. For a horse with high dressage, stamina and speed. Not really focusing on any thing like gallop, trot, or jumping for comps. Just for a horse with high skills in the top three skills... hopefully!! default smiley (y)

I've bred a couple of Shetland/Arabians for the shetland stamina board, the two with the 'Feelin Blue Shetland' affix were bred by me on my old account default smiley :)
I'm working on a morgan-paint cross mare called Chicxulub. She should be on the morgan speed table after the update default smiley (m)

How would you get a horse that excels in crosscountry and jumping? would an Arabian/Irish Hunter be good?
Shetland-Arabian would be wonderful for the shetland stamina table! Sounds like great fun!

I've only gotten two horses in the rankings ever before, and I didn't even produce them myself... lol I'm working on getting some breeds in their though. I'm going to try:

Barb/Arabian, don't steal my idea!!!! default smiley (lol)
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 17:10:12
One of them , and then there is also her son Hamish.. default smiley :)

They are! I do have another foal that I'm hoping to get BLUPed soon- once I have the aging points! default smiley (lol)
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 17:11:54
Chicxulub 18* looks great!

default smiley (lol) chickentender, I'll keep a look out for them.. default smiley :)
chickentender,
My Quarter/Paint crosses do pretty good in dressage. Depending on which cycle it is in, dressage changes between 2nd and 3rd skill. Not bad but does not compare to the Hunters or Arabs for dressage but if you add in a high dressage breed it tends to take away from speed and gallop.

Thanks zepharo.
It's better to get good advice from people, than to learn it the hard way.. I'll remember that. *Adds to breeder's book* But I really do have a Notepad page that has different notes/advice given to me. It's really a good thing to have, I suggest you guys get one it's helpful. Because on howrse things *can* get deleted... even if not meant to!!!

Lol thanks Guanaco!! default smiley (y)
