[Info] Cross breeders
Looking to do one that does well in Cross Country
Arab x Vanner are the best for this. Make sure Arab is the dominant breed so purchase a Vanner mare and cover her with an Arab stallion. ALWAYS get the highest possible GP available in sales and covers.
Check out the horses in my favourites box at the top of my presentation page. They're all Arab x Vanners.
The Legacy Project is really making some progress at the moment. I have been solely focusing on comping my 3 ranking horses. I am about 500 wins short of having all three in the top 100 and about 40ish wins short of having one in the top 50. I really feel like I am making some good progress towards my goal of one in the top 10!
I'm starting to gather horses to act as the foundations from my Arab-Haflinger project.
Here's what I'm starting with:
I'm not quite sure how far this cross will go as the Arabian and Haflinger's skill sets are identical in regards to the strengths and weaknesses in them.
If, in the probably very likely event, that I need to add a third breed into this breeding project what breed should I add?
Since they are going to be of the Haflinger breed they'll be put into the Western discipline, but since they have very similar skill sets I'm a bit worried that Speed and Trot will take a heavy hit
I've started a 'well rounded' project; I'm breeding howrse breeds together that have the top skills and making a 'breed' that had a skill set that doesn't have any low skills and can theoretically do well in both disciplines and in all competitions.
Here's the breeds I'm starting with:
Stamina: Teke/Canadian (1,654.96)
Speed: Fjord (1,654.96)
Dressage: Morgan (1,655.63)
Gallop: Marwari (1,655.63)
Trot: Paso (1,655.63)
Jumping: Shetland (1,655.63)
I would like to note that in the individual skill listed beside each horse there are 11 for stamina, 6 for speed, and two in jumping that I could have chose from, but these are the breeds that are cheap in direct sales since I feel that a project shouldn't stick you without eqqus. So these breeds are both fairly inexpensive and high quality.
I also want to note that Canadian is beside Akhal-Tekes due to the fact that they are a bit cheaper then the Tekes.
