    That said, ANY of you who come across a young big half arab warmblood type that isn't megabucks, please pm me!

    I bred my own - wouldn't have changed it for the world for the satisfaction,
    but wow, only my accountant knows for sure how much they cost.

    This time of year my thoughts turn to stallions and dreams, but no, absolutely NO.

    I did send my babies up to a ranch to run free and socialize with other horses,
    a key part of raising them, I feel.

    Ancientoaks used to post here and bred WB/Arab sport horses. All Anglos would.probably know as well, they are involved in the SHN breeding program which offers 50% off stud fees, many to WBs.

    If you decide to breed I would do a lease on the broodmare lease thread, preferably on their farm. I bred my mare this past year and my biggest concern is foaling her out... I will.be paying a professional to do it, I am just too worried. It would be wonderful for them to take care of it all!

    Have you thought about researching some of your favorite stallions and then contacting the breeder to see what they have for sale?

    If you want a foal of a nice quality, your are going to have to have parents of nice quality (and sometimes even that's a crapshoot) and either or is going to cost you. Arab or Warmblood mare. I'm considering doing an ET with my mare in a few years (so we can save the $$!!) but I'm being so, so, so selective about stallions. We aren't going to skimp at all, since we only want to do this once. The rough figure that we've come up with... I just don't even want to think about.

    I'm breeding because I want a baby from MY mare, not just a baby, but a Herself baby. If I didn't have such an attachment to her, I'd find a stallion that I liked and contact the breeder about offspring that they have for sale. The $$ is MUCH smaller and you have a rough idea of what you're looking at. I work on a breeding farm, and know what can go wrong. If you want to do it, that's great! Just make sure to really know what you could be looking at, as far as worst case scenario.

    I'm in almost your same boat, peek a boo lameness, and a nice mare. I am choosing to breed, as I have the horses at home, the time to wait, and I want a baby from her. I also don't have the upfront cash to buy a expensive prospect, but I have the ability to spread that out over the next 5-7 years. It also helps that I have others to ride in the meantime.
    I would also suggest arab mare to warmblood stallion as that is what my mare is. I am breeding her back to a warmblood stallion for a 1/4 arab, 3/4warmblood baby. The only thing that we differ on is I want a baby to mature to under 16 hands. I am a 5'1" amateur who doesn't want to carry my own stepladder anymore.

    hehe...fourmares you enjoy lookin em up almost as much as I do! Thanks! (and? I hope thats not considered advertising, mods?...but also, anyone can PM me if thats more correct)
    Will say: the ASB / National Show Horse cross is not a favorite of mine...I've seen a few that were beefy enough and not too long in the back for me, but usually not what I'd be looking for. And, wouldn't really be looking for anything older than 5-6 (that again is flexible a bit for the perfect fit)....then add in that I'm in VA so everything on the far west coast adds a lot in travel/transport. but I STILL love to look at em all !

    I'm in LURVE with that bay in the first set of ads. *drool*

    Aren't the Dutch Harness Horses some sort of Arab influenced cross? Probably not, but why do I think that they are?

    I'm not sure what your price range is but...

    After seeing what all is out there, it seems that trying to breed for that without some years of experience breeding or a mentor that has been there, done that, would be a daunting task.

    As a "consumer", it seems that there is already out there so much to pick from, already a known entity, not a years down the road guess.

    Unless breeding is what someone wants to do, whatever they get.
    They are not breeding hoping to get that one almost perfect horse.

    I came across this guy yesterday. He may have some offspring that will be quite tall.

    The owner rides a mare she bred in dressage and also breeds for eventing. Might also ask her what else she knows for sale.

    horsetales: that 4 yr old 3/4 arab 1/4 Irish Draft is v e r y nice looking!!! Right the age I'd love to have (but want her a bit bigger!) but I LIKE.
    Fairtheewell: already been out to that farm and really do appreciate his foals...but problem is: his dam is her only arab mare, so he isn't breeding half arabs....however NICE babies. And, she does have a half arab filly out of another stallion that we DO like, but shes a weanling........and at that, too pricey for us (for a weanling). I will let you all know that: I'm gonna keep looking for a youngster, as I find I cannot afford them with training and time put into them.......which is fine. I have the time, and am fine with the training myself to a point. (and enjoy it very much at that).....I'm going to, therefore ...keep looking for that 5K youngster....not the 15 grand ones I want but can't afford.

    Its going to be hard to find a well bred arab x wb with height for that price-- I know, I was just shopping in 2012.

    I ended up with a 15h half arab with no WB. I'm totally happy with my horse but he's small.

    It will be hard to find what you want with the budget of 5K, I'm afraid. The best ones never reach the classifides. I bought my last two arabs/HA this way.
