    This is all just hypothetical. BUT, if you could breed your mare (or if your gelding was a mare), and you knew the foal was going to get the best from both parents, who would you breed to?

    Here is my 2009 AQHA mare Peps Hickory Sugar (this isn't the greatest picture of her, she's not THAT bum high)

    In fantasy world, I would breed her to (for obviously a different purpose for each foal):

    I hopefully have an ITA baby on the way so cheers to you for wanting an ITA foal!!! However, with her breeding I'd die to see a cross by High Brow Jackson.

    My turn.

    If I bred my RMHA mare, Polly, my top pick to cross with her would be RMHA stallion Tobe's Sun. My mare is everything the breed standard says this breed should be so I would seek a stallion with those same traits/build/temperament/etc, with the exception that I would not breed her to a chocolate (black w/ silver gene) stallion because of the high chance of the foal having ASD... only black or non-silver gene stallions for her :)

    Here is my mare (just turned 4 yrs old here - last summer)

    There are a few other stallions I like that are Grullo or roan but I would love to get a black or chocolate foal if I did breed her so a black stallion would be the best choice for her :)

    Here is a Roan stallion I really like for her as well...

    I have a TWHxWelsh who's had 2 accidental foals (not when she was mine), but she has a great mind and is very athletic:
    IMG_1849.jpg This picture isn't completely true to life of her conformation, but if I knew she would pass on the best of both worlds, I'd breed her with Smart Little Lena. Like I said, you can't tell from the picture but they are conformationally VERY close. Kinda cool to me.

    Can't Copy Or Paste Pics On My Phone, But....

    High Brow Cat If I Was Rich.

    One Time Pepto Or Metallic Cat If I Had The Money

    Bet Hesa Cat Is A Very Real Option, And High Brow Jackson Is Also A Real Possibility.

    There Are Plenty More, But These Are My Top Choices.

    My current dream breeding would be my mare (JSL Psyches Magic, 3/4 arabian endurance horse):

    [​IMG]

    to KB Omega Fahim+++// (arabian Grand Prix dressage horse):

    If I could find an arabian stallion that, say, was a Tevis winner, I would want to pick him. However, after all my internet searches, I've never seen a stallion that seems to have that strong of an endurance record.

    I'm currently leaning towards Omega for my mare :) He's also one of my horse's half bro, and he's a pretty kick *** endurance horse himself.

    The only stud that has won Tevis (twice actually) that comes to mind was Bezatal, and he's long gone :(

    Shes just a baby so it will be many years-she's 3(in 10 days!)& a lot of training/showing before I ever consider breeding her.
    I love this filly & have a lot of plans for her. :)

    this is my mare she's a 2000 Appendix QH and an amazing jumper,
    photo (9).jpg emily2.jpg

    If I Could Breed her to any stallions it would have to be:
    300_IRONMANAWR2.jpg Ironman (he's a dream ride apparently and quite the jumper)

    993708_13167255_hd.jpg or Crin Rouge (he's an awesome stallion and is very typey)

    I think any foal would have to be american Warmblood registered!

    I'm with firegurl, I'd breed my half-arab mare to one of the Tevis cup geldings, probably Heraldic if I could magically make that possible.
