I was looking at the LB this morning and saw one of my mares. She is currently 58. This shocks me as her rating is only an EPP.at 58 she should stay on the LB and not be bumped off. Now I feel I need to give her the benefit of the doubt and breed her to a top quality stallion. She is high in Movement and Low in Heart. I could really use some help in matching her. This is going to be hard as most LB stallions have an EEP restriction. Or should I not bother with her? I know Lysander fits well but he has a restriction on him. Here is here link:
The LBs will move a whole bunch once the rest of the horses are bred. This year the mare LBs are different in that if the mare hasn't been bred yet, she doesnt show up. Previously all mares showed up whether they had been bred yet or not.
I would wait a few more weeks before making the decision. There is a chance she gets bumped off.
She probably won't fall off, I checked some of the mares around her and they were all on the LB last year. I would probably try and PM the owner of any stallions that she matches to and let them know. But her production also isn't great so I wouldn't go super out of the way with her.
Aerovane said: We're also talking about PONs here. The breed is not strong at all currently so it's easier for lower quality mares such as EPP combos to make it onto the PONLB.
I'm pretty sure there is an EEP stud in the top 20 of the PONLB. It really wouldn't shock me all that much to still see an EPP up there. I do expect some sort of shift though still. Well maybe not at this point but if there is not much. This is another one of silvers boys I think match well https://horseeden.com/horse.php?id=18100787
