Does She Have Good Bloodlines??

For all of you Tennessee Walking Horse people out there, I have a question.

I've got a chestnut mare and a chocolate bay/black mare. We're gonna breed the black to a really good stud, but now I want to find a stud for the chestnut.

One of my friend's has a stud that I really like. He's got good bloodlines, a good disposition, and a good gait considering what he went through. He had great conformation when he was young too, but then he had an ordeal. His name is Stonecutter's Legacy. He's a nice boy and I want to breed him to my chestnut mare(Cloud). I've been thinking about breeding her, but I wasn't sure who to breed her too. She's pretty good, but she was never shown cause she didn't like crowds. Now I want your opinion on her bloodlines. Are they good? Deals Cloud Nine Tennessee Walking Horse

As for Stoney's ordeal, when he was being trained to saddle he was padded, sored, and broken down in the back. When my friend got him he could barely walk. If he turned too fast, he fell. Now he's gaining back some of his back end and muscling and he has a nice gait even for his abuse. He can never be ridden, but he has a long list of ribbons for his in-hand classes. They two I remember the easiest are: he placed 6 out of 97 in the Yearling Colts class in the 2005 Futurity and he got 1st in the Weanling Colts class in the 2004 Futurity. He would have made a great riding horse. :(

So, back to my original question, How are Cloud's bloodlines?

While good blood lines are important, what really matters is how compatible his breeding is to your mare's to produce a sound and healthy foal.

Hopefully someone in the Walking Horse world that understands all that will come in and comment.

I know of a lady that is a wahzoo expert in that regard but she is on another forum.

She is not often willing to comment on other peoples' breeding intent because they get mad at her when she tells them their mating choices are not right

She has alot of Merry Go Boy in there. That's a good line. I like that line. They produce quite a few very good horses out of that line.

Your mare has quite a bit of older bloodlines. You don't see a whole lot of horses that have similar bloodlines. Her bloodlines are good, yes. What bloodlines does the potential stud have? They may or may not be a good cross for your mare's bloodlines.

She has nice bloodlines. What are the stud's bloodlines? Do you have pictures of him before his ordeals? I'm sure we couldn't judge well from now if he was as bad off as you said. Can we get pictures of her? :)
