APHA Stallion Suggestion

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.

Silly Me I didnt give you guys a picture of her.
This was taken in the summer when my family does most of our trial riding the buckskin tob is her yearling foal. The second was in november(I blocked out my face because my face looked really wierd.

Before you start deciding on stallions, has she been tested for Frame/OLWS? If she is positive that is going to cut out some stallions.

Plus do you have a better conformation picture or are you able to get one? She looks, in the second picture, really sickle hocked. In the first her back legs just look... off. Like they are both twisted slightly so they both point to the right. I know that it could just be the angle of the camera. That is why I am asking. :)

Well where she is standing in our yard is slightly sloped. I snapped a couple shots while feeding them this morning. Please excuse the mud as I live in oregon and mud is unavoidable in the winter.

I agree with ND, you need to get her tested for Frame/OLWS if she hasn't been already. If she's positive, it'll cut down your number of potential stallions.

She looks to be pretty sickle hocked and fairly long backed as well. I also would test for frame. And I personally wouldn't breed her.

Just putting in my two cents here (and agreeing with the above posters that she needs to be tested for frame), I don't think she should be bred. I know that's not what you want to hear, but based on her conformation I don't think her reproducing is the best idea. She is sickle hocked (and looks moreso in the first two pictures you posted) and has a long, weak back. To me, it seems like you are breeding just because you can and are focusing on color, which should be the last of your worries. If you do decide to go on with the breeding, please take the time to find a WELL built stallion that will compliment her faults, aka a stallion with a nice set of legs and a short, stocky back being the biggest factors (in my eyes anyways), even if that stallion is a boring ole sorrel or bay.
