    I totally understand what "carrier" means.

    My point was that, at worst, all my horses (and the horses behind them) could be is carriers.

    What I meant was that, given all the evidence &...

    Also: I don't think you are an actual breeder, are you?

    I ask because mares who are a touch long in the loin usually work well as broodies; there is lots of room in there for babies. ;) Just an...

    And this is why I like to see a stallion move at liberty to judge their gaits. And bad riding won't effect the stallion's ability to produce.

    A friend of mine just came back from Germany & saw...

    OK, just for "fun" I am going to stir the pot abit.

    ALthough my "foundation" mare is PB Arab (the one whose pedigree is posted on this thread), the WB I was using has crosses to Ramzes, who was...

    Well, I've bred some mares to Kathy & Jos's stallions & taken equine repro courses from them as well...but they didn't need to show me a naked man on a horse for that to happen.

    Yeah, that ad actually appeared last year for the first time and COTH had a thread on it. Some liked it, some didn't. It made everyone look though.

    DY: personally, I think the risk is so small as to be fairly close to 0%; it's the old story about "hybrid vigor".

    But if you have money to burn test for all of them and rest easy.

    Breeders talk among themselves. You are obviously not really a student of the breed if you don't know the Bask history. He is a legend in the breed and you thought he was born in WWII.

    So I need...

    Stripes, thank you for this. I was beginning to think I was losing my mind. Even to this day Bask-bred horses are some of the toughest and most athletic out there.

    And the people I know who don't...

    One researches what needs to be researched. If I had been breeding PB Arabs I would have done that, but I was never interested in doing the PB Arab route. Too much junk out there.

    You know, one of the hardest lessons COTHers seem to struggle with ('cause they've all been innoculated with "breed best to best,") is that the test of a breeding animal is NOT what they are, but...

    She was never bred to ARABS. As I noted in the other post, I've owned this mare pretty much all her life & she will be 22 this year. My main riding horse. So, as I mentioned, I can be assured she...

    This is not correct. Bask was purchased at 3-4 yrs of age by Gene LaCroix in the '60's and brought to America then.

    Well, I suppose testing might be prudent, but the PB Arab in question is...

    SS has lovely gaits, but he sure doesn't...

    Ohhh, Pick Me! Pick Me!

    :lol: I bred Akhal Tekes for years and still have 2 -- both over 90% Teke. Neither have ever worn blankets & don't even come in the barn at night.

    The foal I had that was born mid-Feb. (with the...

    Like so many others, I would never use a draft. Yes, they can turn out some nice babies, but those usually are only 1/8 to 1/4 draft. 50% is too much in my mind.

    Not sure where the idea came from...

    Holsteiner pedigree

    A lady sent me this pedigree of a Holsteiner stallion that stands regionally (who I don't think is approved) and asked me what I thought.

    Holsteiners are not really my breed, but it doesn't look...
