Re: [RC] Breeding your mare...sheesh guys - Maryanne Gabbani

I've bred a lot of my horses based on my knowledge of their parents and prospective mates (and sometimes grandparents and great-grandparents). I breed for sound, sane, friendly riding horses, not super athletes. I prefer to have someone that I know from the ground up to train. I started with two mares, got their two sons, now have the son of one of the sons as well as a number of other youngsters from good parents. My expectations are relatively low, but I've been very pleasantly surprised by quite a few of them. And I don't sell horses (though I have been known to give one away on occasion) so the ones here have a home for life.

   Nat (lighten up ppl...all those "rescue" horses are total unkowns often too, without papers, histories, possible bad upbringing, lack of nutrition proper/health care, who knows what....etc...so are even more a crapshoot than breeding a mare you know to a stallion you know)


"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming.... 'Wow! What a ride!' "
