Does anyone here breed cats or dogs? Or any other animals? How do you like it? Do you belong to any organizations and show your pets?
I bred four foals from the first mare I ever owned, and broke two of them in myself. It's wonderful to breed a foal, and very rewarding, but a lot of work, and you have to have the land and facilities, or live near them. Saddly I'm no longer in that position, but it was a great experience.
I am a border collie breeeder. I have loved the breed since I was a teenager. I love watching the puppies grow. Once I find a home for the pups I always tell their new parents that if they can no longer keep the pup that I would be more than happy to take it back, so I know its not in a shelter somewhere. Luckily, I've never had a problem like that. My puppies have always gone to loving family farms.
