Breeding Rules

SENDING THE BREEDING

~When submitting a breeding please include the following Foal Information:

Name:

Date Foaled:

Sire x Dam:

Breed:

Gender:

Color:

Make/Mold (or BSO):

Your name/Stable name (required):

~If you are breeding one of my horses to a horse not on my list I need the same information for that horse including a 4 generation pedigree. If  you are unsure whether or not a breeding might work, you are welcome to email me with the possible parents/foal information and ask.

~I will breed half siblings(it is even encouraged in the Heirloom Arabians), however I refuse to breed full siblings or Mother/Son, Father/Daughter

~Do not send more than three (3) breedings at one time. Please don't request more until these are done.

~All foals must be assigned a birth year that is within the sires foal crop years and one of the dams open years. Fixed age or non-aging breedings are allowed. However, you must send your request to me in year format (i.e. 1984, not 19 years old) as I will be using the dam's open year in my record.

~If using one of my mares, you must send three year choices since my list may not be fully updated and then I can just go to your next choice.   

~I do accept BSO (pedigree-only, no model body) breedings unless otherwise specified (some sires/dams may only be permitted to have foals with model bodies)

~All web breedings are free; if you would like a snail-mailed breeding certificate email me and we can work something out.

~I will notify you when I have recieved your requests.

OTHER GENERAL NOTES

~For more information on model pedigree assignment, please check out the IPABRA website.

~I will not allow obscene/dirty words or anything similar as names for offspring; dont even bother to request this type of name.  I will refuse breedings for horses that have the names of real, fictional, or famous model horses, such as "Strapless", "Roemer", "Parr's Dream Doll", "Gypsy Karma", etc.
 
~All horses that I designate as "brown" are black-bays, not dark liver chestnuts.

~I will allow most breed crosses, however my Heirloom Egyptian Arabian mares are very precious, and therefore can only be crossed with Heirloom Egyptian Arabian Stallions.
 
~When naming your Arabian foals, especially, please follow the Arabian Horse Registry naming rules: no more than 17 characters are allowed and prior to 2002, no more than three(3) "words" are allowed in a name. 
 
 
 
COLOR GENETICS
~All homozygous models can only produce a foal of that color, and are marked as such. All others are to be considered heterozygous.

~The easiest rule of equine color genetics is to make one parent the same color/pattern as the foal. Other notes on non-homozygotes: Two chestnuts will always produce a chestnut.

~'Colored' parents (pinto, Appaloosa) may have solid colored offspring.

~As far as is known, any Appaloosa pattern can produce any other pattern, i.e. a leopard can produce a varnish roan or a spotted blanket can produce a leopard.
