[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

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.

Three things I just did:
1. Bred a Hera’s Pack’d set of my current favorite Reining cross (50/25/25 MW/GV/TB) with 11500 GP and over 3500 IBS
2. Bought a 12220 GP TB mare for use in breeding higher GP of those crosses (it was a steal- full BLUPed mare only 300K e)
3. Bred a TB/GV cross with 12100 GP- time to BLUP her and breed back to a Marwari! default smiley (l)default smiley (l)default smiley (l)

I have some elements from the last event and I want to use it on a good horse. What crossbreeds would be good for air, water, and earth elements?

What comps do Morgans do? Would they make good crosses with Marwaris or TBs?


There's different lines I find that can do either Show Jumping or Cross Country. I actually have a Morie (Morgan x Marwari) project, if I remember right I think it did decently for either Reining or Cutting. If bred with a TB, you could end up with something that's decent for Cutting, Barrels, or Reining.

So I've been breeding gypsians (friesian and vanner) and their stamina is decent. When I choose western, they do well in Western Pleasure, but what would I show them as in Classical? My laptop died and is currently charging so I am unable to post a link. Thank you in advance for any and all help.


If not answered already (had to go back a page to catch up), Going Classical they'd do well with Cross Country since both breeds have Stamina and Dressage in their top 3.

With Water, I'd do any that either has low stamina or high stamina. Earth is decent for most breeds as Dressage is a common skill. Air, I'd do low or high jumping breeds.

Sorry if it seems like I'm spamming. I could use a bit of help with naming a foal. I'm trying to keep it in a similar fashion to her predecessors. I have Legacy, Comeback, Promise, Prequel, Beginning, and Pride. But I'm at a loss of what to call her. Harwell's End would not suite her as she's part of my 'All Breed' project and that's obviously going to go on for a bit.

You could try anagarams? Write out the names of parents and grandparents and rearrange the letters themselves until they make sense or sound interesting and fun.

Whelp.
Wanted to see how Khal could do. 15k isn't awful. It's funny to see a Thoroughbred not strong in Gallop though.

Would anyone be interested in a foal partnership? If so please PM me. Looking for multiple breeders default smiley :)

I want to say Lusitano?

It'd be fine cross, both breeds have the same skill set and I couldn't tell you what has a higher GP.

I've got a long line of Connemara crosses and I just won my first rosette with my own crossbred!
Arizona Sky
11186.70 GP, 66.9% Connemara with GV, PP, TB and PSH in there at different %'s

I just got a 11726.85 GP filly out of her here which has some super promising genetics, but I didn't tear her. Looking for opinions/suggestions for future breedings/constructive criticism that could help my crosses out.

Thanks!

I'm very excited about this guy:

Fools Wish

He's all set to beat my top Marwari in the reining prix this week, which could put him in the top 200

Also have a few mares who are suitable mates (next step: raise the stamina and dressage without loosing the gallop!), so give me a little longer and I might be after rosettes and top 100!

Ha! First thing I would have said would be do the same again with tears, but I see you already did that (Fool's Wish has an older sis who didn't quite have the IBS to beat my Marwari last week!)

It being my current obsession I can't help noticing she's nicely targeted for reining! Don't know if she'd beat pure connies though?

That's a nice foal you've got there!

I plan on making her Western as its been several generations since I've had a good Western skiller. I'll definitely try reining! her current GP is only a couple hundred under the top Connies so with her being skilled, she should be able to beat out unskilled purebreds (hopefully)

I crossed a pure paint and a pure Spanish and was wondering if anyone knew if it was a good cross. I also take suggestions for names.

Fools Wish made it to 208th place in the reining prix this week. I'd have liked a little higher in the rankings, but he's young, so maybe next week!

Hello. I am currently starting crosses. Well I'm trying to figure out if I want to stay pure or cross. I did do my first cross of a Shetland and a Kerry Bog pony. Not a lot of pony's have trotting as their main skill, in fact the Kerry Bog pony had it as it's 4th skill, better than all the rest i suppose because they all had it as their 6th or 5th skill.

anyone have any good ideas for crossing pony's? Should I try experimenting on crossing a pony with a horse?
