I've got a chestnut mare and a chocolate bay/black mare. We're going to 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?
