Me again,

Another question. My Big Engine Mare has great confirmation but some times she a little hard to handle. I can usually just ride it out of her. Its really not that big of deal.
I am seriously considering breeding her this coming spring. I want to breed for (1) Disposition, and (1.25) confirmation.
So I guess this is an old question. Who will the foal take after? The Mare? The Stallion? Both? Its Random?

Thanks for your opinions.

Hi John,

I my mare is sound minded and has a great disposition. I have bred her to two different stallions. #1 Was very similar in conformation, but he was high spirited (lots of Brio, the are paso finos :-)) the resulting colt is sweet but much more high strung than his mom and needs to be worked down to pay attention too. #2 I bred to a larger boned ultra calm stud, and the resulting filly is super duper calm and very easy going. I think it is a little of both...There are so many Great stallions to breed to that have it all that I would pick the best your money can buy because it is the really the least expensive thing when it comes to having a horse for 30 years. In my so humble opinon.

John: I will tell you this. In breeding my three mares with my own stallion...this is what I got this year.

My "boy" is quite the handful and is a real tough case with the potential to be a hardhead.

My sweet disposition mare had a wonderful and equally sweet and calm baby. Took 100% in personality after his mother.

My semi-hot mare who is sweet but "active" had a "turd" baby who is 100% like his father with regards to personality (his name is "JJ" for Junior Jack@#$).

My big, fat "pushy" mare had a little "pushy" sweetheart but attitudal filly who is personality like her mother but attitude like father so I'd say 50/50 in personality from both.

Hahahaha...doesn't help you much does it?! I'd say its like flipping in coin in my book on what you get. Although, I do believe that personality is extremely important when trying to breed to get one who's more "cooled down"
