OP, your mare is very cute. And while I can completely agree your plan to breed her & keep the baby for yourselves is a valid reason (sorry faye, but something could happen to any of us at any time, does that mean none of us should get a horse? But I completely, 100% agree with the poor excuse of breeding a mare just to breed a mare).
Anyway OP, I can see why you like that stud and not just for his color. BUT, what about finding one similiar that has stronger conformation to compliment your mare? There are quite a few QH or Paint studs that not only would compliment her confo, but that have just as desirable personality as the one you are looking at. That way you kill 2 birds with 1 stone, you get the baby that you want and also get one that may more desirable in the resale market should you ever need to find it a new home?
Not bashing you in any way, shape, or form. I think your reason for breeding your mare is a valid one (you're not doing it to make money), but just wondering if you've looked at other possibilities.
