    Default Selle Francais x Thoroughbred Mare

    "Lovee" is a 15 year old Selle Francais x thoroughbred mare that needs a good home! She has competed successfully through the one* level in eventing, and attended young riders in 2004. I have recently purchased Lovee in April 2011, to continue to use as a lower level event horse, as well as a pony club mount. In June 2011 Lovee suffered an injury to her knee. We have had a very detailed work up of the injury and while she is sound for light riding and trails, she will not be able to jump or do strenuous work. Lovee truly is a easy horse to have around the barn. She is fine on 24/7 turnout, and eats minimal amounts of grain. She is not the boss in the pasture and is usually the lowest in the herd.
    Lovee is a NICE mare, who would be a great candidate for a broodmare. She has very very regular cycles, and has been great "babysitting" my weanling. She wants her own baby now! She has proven herself in the eventing world, and has lovely conformation. I am SO sad to have to find a home for her, but I cannot afford to keep a horse I cant use at the moment. If you are interested PM me. We are willing to haul her to you, we just want her to have a loving home! She is a sweet mare and deserves it!

    Thanks CHS but Dawglover's barn is full and Mr. Dawglover can't build me an addition because we have a lot of storm damage to clean up yet.

    Post a link to this thread in the sport horse breeding forum. She will have a new home within seconds I would think.

    How big is she and is she registered/eligible for breeding with any of the major WB books? That will be very helpful info to get her into a new breeding home ASAP. She looks absolutely LOVELY. I am very tempted.....I hope she finds an excellent home before I can figure out how to convince my husband that she needs to come live with me!

    Unfortunately we don't have the papers on her. I have a few of her old owners names, so I am working on tracking them down. She is 15.3 and built very uphill. This mare LOVED to jump, and was incredible at it

    Beautiful horse and if she had papers I'd be calling. I have a free breeding to Edelweiss de Bounce to use.

    THIS is a perfect example of why keeping papers on performance horses is SOOOO important! I'm sure she'll find a home,,, but a horse like this with papers would be gone by now with papers.

    I agree. I just got the go ahead from my husband to look for 1-2 additional broodmares. I wish she had papers. She is lovely. Good luck and here is to hoping that some of your contacts are able to lead you to a paper trail. Do you happen to know what her breeding is?
