    Anyone else think they might have any plans?

    I will be breeding both Vana and Lexi next year, but have not decided which stallion to breed either/both mares to (the grullo & white stallion is 14.3 hh, but I love grullos, and the smoky black and white is 15.3, which gives me the height). Both stallions have barrel points, and great personalities, so I think I will wait to see them in person, and discuss genetics with the breeder.

    ^ I'm sure you've noticed, but both the above stallions are significantly butt high, especially the white/black one.

    As it stands now, and things are always subject to change, but I plan to breed Solei back to Obsidian Dream S, as their filly this year is a stunning example of this cross, and I certainly would like another..

    La Legacy de Solei:



    Obsidian Dream S:





    The result of this cross:




    I will also breed Dream to Khassie:



    And last, but not least, Magic is proudly booked to Denise Gainey's fine boy- HG Esquire:





    HG Esquire:

    HG Esquire+ was awarded Sire of the Year from the American Warmblood Society. His get presented for approval had the highest average score for the year: 78.531%.

    Yes, and he also comes from halter line breeding, hence his smaller legs, so I am kind of leaning towards the grullo right now. My girls are both bigger, so I still may get the size I want. I am looking for a well put together horse that can handle mountain trail rides with an adult on its back.

    And I may still find one I like better, but I have to either pick one close enough to me to drive to, or limit to only one breeding if I AI due to cost.

    Typically I would rather breed one top notch foal rather than two decent ones. It will be cheaper in the long run and one less soul to pay for, feed, and train.

    I know there are quite a few other stallions out there that have better conformation than the two above, and I may need to start thinking "outside the box" and look at QH studs as well. I am not set and have not obligated myself to anything with the breeder yet. I am just concerned with AI since it incurs so much more cost than live coverage, but there are not a lot of options for stud service without driving 3+ hours with the mares one way.

    I understand! I went through the same thing! I searched and searched for a nice performance bred qh for my tb mare in prime cow horse country and finally just resigned to the fact that if I wanted to be competitive with my foal I needed to buckle down and put the cash into the a I breeding of my mare. But I'm proud to say my foaly will be a lot closer to what I wanted than if I had bred her to a cow horse.

    I'm still deciding what my plans are. I've got a liking to a young stallion right now.
