I would look at clyde breeders in Alberta. Some of the old PMU ranchers still have considerable breeding programs up there. You are wasting your time trying to find Shire mares. There just aren't that many to start with, most will be grey, black or bay and they will be more expensive. There is a great shire breeder in Wyoming. Can't think of his name off the top of my head (looks like he should be a mule guy) but his bay colts will beat mature stallions all the time at Stock Show.

There are a few sorrel/chestnut Clydesdales around... But very few (the breed is predominantly bay and black) ... And make sure to request DNA testing if you are set on the horse being "red" for a breeding program as I know many breeders use just what they "see" to register color within the registry still. (Sabino can really hide tell tale markings, so often it seems breeders go solely by body color)

I believe one bloodline you might look into is Highfield's Lord Alexander - if memory serves he was one I have seen... Perhaps someone who has bred to him has been lucky enough to get a red foal?
