[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.

Not to brag but recently bred some crosses:
- Charmeine, Lipizzan mare, ranked 2nd for speed and 1st for jumping in her breed.
- Saoirse, Lipizzan mare, ranked 1st for speed and 2nd for jumping in her breed.
- Shaden, Lipizzan stallion, ranked 3rd for jumping and 15th for trot in his breed.

Currently I have the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best Lipizzans for jumping.

Hi guys, I used to play this game years and years ago under the username Liza, unfortunately I forgot the login details for that account years ago and because of that the account was deleted, but I'm back again, breeding my Marwari crossbreds as my main, but I'm looking into Mustangs and Trotters as well. So I've got two I'd like to show off now;
Eos, my Walker cross
Hectate, my Marwari cross

Hi, all!

It's been a long time since I played regularly. If I cross two purebred horses (as in, the foal will be 50% of each breed) will the foal have the breed of the sire or the dam?

Thanks!

Thank you, sherwood02!

westernsky; that is awesome! That must be so satisfying default smiley :) how long did that take you to do?

I just bred this gal today. She should be #1 in jump for Appaloosas tomorrow. If anyone is interested in her sister, let me know!

I am new to crossbreeding, and I was wondering if there is a certain other breed that is best to breed with Appaloosas?

Depends on what your goals are, but if you're looking to stay with the same top 3 skills, these breeds also have speed, dressage, and gallop as their top 3 skills (not necessarily in order):

Paint horse, Purebred Spanish, Chincoteague, Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, and Welsh

I'm back... after a long time... for obvious reasons of lots of sudden free time...

Last time i bred crosses i did a lot of jumpers, now i'm doing a (very small) gallopy project;

Snap Inferno was my first (TB x Paint) which I used a lot of my BM's for, I should kinda have done a practice run prior though, despite winning 6 rosettes they were difficult wins...

Then i bred Mineral Minded a Welsh x TB just for a bit of fun, didn't use any BM's as was just looking to sell on and she's currently on 27 rosettes..... (I only wanted to age her to 10 but then got carried away lol)

That's how life goes default smiley xd

Anyone have any gallop or speed focused crosses?

So I'm a little bit confused. I blupped and trained Atabey who is the twin of Pinga they are both in 60e lesson centers and are both fulled blupped but Atabey has almost 3000 skill points less?Does anyone know why that might be?

Is it possible Atabey was at less than 100 health for a period of time during training? Horses gain less skills when they are trained under 100 health and the skill loss is irreversible.

To me it looks like one was teared and one wasn't--you're sure they're twins and not siblings born the same day?

That's super weird, unless her health was low the WHOLE time, it'd be hard to get a 3k skill difference...

That's so weird, especially as the skills that are much lower are Stamina, Dressage and Jumping. Maybe did they have less that 100 health when you did XC comps?

I'm starting an Azteca project (Criollo x QH x Lusitano) and I cannot, for the life of me, find a Criollo foundie mare ANYwhere. I already purchased a QH stud (need a Lusi one too) but well I guess I'm kind of stuck for a little bit

*cue internal panic*

why did I do this
why am I doing this
Does anyone know of the whereabouts of a Criollo foundation mare I could borrow?

TWH are Western Pleasure, right? So you'd want to pick a Barrel Racing breed, probably either Marwaris or Mustangs (idk what the others are)

So I've finally finished setting up my breeding program (got my three foundies, all set to start breeding) and if anyone wants to take a look or is interested in helping out, there's more information here.
Currently on my first generation of foals, should move on to second generation soon!
