I have one due middle of June. Not quite what I was originally planning after I had to change mare and then stallion (don’t ask 🙄) but I have quite an exciting baby due as it's a cross between the bloodlines of my all time best horses, Boss and Moon who are both sadly no longer with us.
Anyway, I found a really nice, but totally unproven, mare by a jumping stallion and out of a mare by Boss's sire and put her to a stallion by Moon's sire. Totally bonkers idea, but you have to be to breed anyway 🤪

And this is Nomi, the mother-to-be

couldnt agree more..you really do have to be bonkers to breed.

Is Nomi young, she as a lovely pop on her ? Moon is gorgeous who is his sire ?

She's 15 and has literally done nothing her whole life, but for a very genuine reason- I bought her off her breeder who competed her dam.
Moon was by Fleetwater Opposition, she gave me my lovely rising 5yr old who is super special and I tried a couple of times to get another foal from her but sadly she didn’t take. I have another Opposition mare who will hopefully go in foal to his sire next year. Keeping it all in the family, but I like what I like 😂

ahhh ! So Moon is your gorgeous chestnuts dam . No wonder I liked her .
I’m a fan of keeping it in the family too , when you like certain lines it’s hard to break away .

That’s lovely that you know Nomi full history . I bet her breeder is very excited to see what she produces .

Hera is kinda family too, her dam shares a stallion line with Millie, who i could sadly never breed from as she's loaned from a charity. We saw Salty at the local cheapo sales and bought her on that basis. She's got a nicer temperament than Millie but Hera has the family sass in spades :p

Thanks- it's really nice when you've ridden the mare and lots of aunties and uncles too. Although he is quite a different character, you do see the traits coming through

Some people don’t understand that sentimental tie but if I'm breeding for myself I want it to be something I really want

I tried to breed one for me 2 years ago out of my home bred mare. He’s wonky (never good when the specialist vet describes your 9 month old foal as an interesting case) and probably won’t be ridden. Just as well he is a sweet boy and that I was able to by myself a nice 4yo.

Last year’s Escape Z foal from daughter's jumping mare is really nice (and correct). If all goes to plan we will have 2 mares put in foal in the spring.

My 4yr old is by Escape Z and he's who I'll hopefully put one to this year. Had a bit of hassle getting chilled semen though so I might have to chance frozen

OH has just suggested trying to put both mares in foal 👀
Not sure what has come over him but if we get our planning we would have the perfect facilities 🤭
Back to kidney-selling 🤣
Great idea! It's always nice to have 2 babies to run on together and it takes the pressure off as you have a better chance of having at least 1 sound, trainable one 😂

i like the sound of your OH !! More stallion shopping or you 😁 or have you already decided ?
One was decided last year though we weren't able to proceed this time, and if he's still going (getting on a bit) i will stick with him. Royal Rubin, a big orange by Rubinstein, ought to complement my own orange.
the other is still a work in progress ;) not getting my hopes up in case the pre-breeding exam is not hopeful.

3 due here all within about 3 weeks of each other.
first is a Dilaro X High Tension X Majed
second a Dinken X Groomsbridge May I X Tout Ensemble
and lastly a Universal X Groomsbridge May I X Tout Ensemble.
I like the look of universal. He’s on my list to check out for my ID mare .
