Dragons
 
 
There is a tremendous collection of information regarding dragons available to us on the internet.  Yet, no one seems to be breeding them!  Like the model horse collectors who enjoy breeding their horses, I enjoy choosing parents for my plastic ponies.  I also enjoy dragons and the qualities they represent within us.  Dragons harmonize our inner selves, expand our emotions and imaginations.  They provide a safe ground for us to explore and experiment with our creativity.  So many myths and legends have been built upon dragons that they have entered our lexicon, whether we believe they are or were true alive or not.  As model horses allow collectors to enjoy and fantasize about the real horses, collecting dragons allows us to create stories about their lives, personalities, and beneficial qualities.  Owning, naming, and loving a dragon gives us a chance to possess a little piece of a special world we can call our own.
 
Thus, as an extension of my love for model horses and creating a heritage for them that tells their stories, I am expanding my imagination to include the breeding and raising of dragons.  There are many different types of dragons in literature, myth, legend and folklore.  I am primarily concerned with small household dragons.  The larger varieties are very difficult to keep, and their gestation and life span makes it complicated to breed them.  They all are very helpful and useful, however the smaller ones are much easier to feed, care for, and handle.  Besides, the burns heal quicker!
 
 Dragons come in many body types, ranging from Wyverns, Amphiptere, and Drake, to traditional Eastern and Western type dragons.  There are many other variations within these, but These are the basics.  Most household dragons are small Western type dragons, not as small as Faerie Dragons, having four legs and wings, and most often breathing fire.  Variations are rare but do occur.  Colored dragons carry many different beneficial properties, with their colors depicting their benevolent traits.  Breeding amongst dragons can lead to many different colors within one clutch, much as cats can have a wide color variety of kittens within one litter.  
 
Minor Dragons can live up to 500 years, and take 100 years to mature to breeding age.  Clutches range in number from 1 to 8 eggs, and a dragon rarely has more than 1 clutch every 15 years.  Dragons lay their eggs, and often hide them so they are not easily found.  An egg calls to its new owner through subtle vibrations, often not recognized by the new owner.  The egg will only hatch when it finds it’s new care giver.  Eggs can stay unhatched for hundreds of years.  It is for this reason, most records of a dragon’s breeding can be difficult to trace.  With the recent insurgence of interest in dragons, many people have become more aware of them and their beneficial traits, and more dragons are finding homes with new people.  Thus, the eggs found these days are not waiting as long to hatch, and heredity can be traced.
 
Eggs laid by one female can have multiple sires, as females hold their eggs indefinitely until they can find a safe place to lay them.
 
Female dragons keep secret their laying place, however, dragons are proud of their heritage.  They do not boast, but recite with pride their ancestors.  This is how much information has been gathered.  Any dates of clutches are approximate, but usually are accurate within two years.
