    Michael,
    I visited your site when you posted it for us to find. Could you tell us more about that kind of horse either here or on your website?

    A foal goes for between $10,000 and $20,000. A mare goes for between $25,000 and $60,000.

    Friesians are originally from Friesland. Mine were imported from a part of Germany that used to be part of Friesland.

    Nice foal Michael,
    Now just how much would you have to have to breed one of your mares to a nice standard gaited jack for me? I know a fella that has just such a mule, where he found it I do not know. My guess is that someone had a "companion" donkey in the wrong place at the wrong time and the wrong state of mind. I don't think any freisian owners would do it on purpose! Makes a real nice mule though.

    I'd bet it would make an awsome mule. The problem is the FHANA/FPS registry won't allow any crossbreeds with anything except an APPROVED friesian stallion. Since I can get 10K for a foal it's doubtful I could every make that raising mules.

    Not much of a horse person myself although I seem to have collected quite a few friends who are. There is nothing quite so adorable as watching a new fowl gains it feet for the first. You got a beauty there Michael.

    Nice Looking foal Michael.

    I have a good looking Stud, he probabbly doesn't have the pedigree yours did, but my mine is still pretty eye catching He stands 15.1 and my stud fees arent that high

    Check him out here:

    Please, dont fret about the skinny draft, although she does look horrid !!!! I just got her on Sunday from a horse dealer who got her at an auction on Friday. She has already been wormed and being very slowly started on grain.
    Am I making any sense?

    "breed one of your mares to a nice standard gaited jack"

    I know practically nothing about horses, but somewhere in the back of my mind I have this recollection that mules are sterile. Is this not always the case?

    Like I say, I know nothing about such things, I just found the subject to be interesting.

    A mule is sterile, a donkey is not, a jack is a donkey. [img]smile.gif[/img]
