I Have a Palomino mare named Payden (Ima Golden Goddess Paint) I am looking in to breeding her this spring/early summer. I want to show her foal (Beginner and will enlist the help of a trainer) I would like to breed her to a top winning halter stallion or as close as I can afford. I bought her a couple years ago from someone who bought her from a woman in 07 who just this year was arrested for several counts of animal cruelty. She was skinny and pregnant, I am still new to judging in horse conformation but even I knew the father wasnt good stock. She had a very skinny buckskin tobiano stud colt who is now happy in his new home.
I feel she has been healthy for a long enough period that I can look into breeding her. I really love her look and I would like to breed her to a stallion that will produce that "bulldog" look, and still have good lineage My stud fee budget is 1200 so that might not be enough for a world champ sire, but I would like close.
Any suggestions? I would like to stray away from chestnut/sorrels, and I prefer overo or sabino to tobiano but if the stallion is homozygous for tob it not a big deal. I considering Barlink Gold rushh.
