Just thought it would be interesting to get your feedback! I am especially interested if anyone has seen or worked with foals in person.

What does the dam look like & what attributes does she possess.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

Are you looking to breed to one of these stallions, or purchasing a foal by one of them?

They are all really nice. I think if you have a good mare you could get a nice foal by any of them. I voted for Hot Ones Only. It was a hard choice between him and the other Invitation Only horse. I do love Invitation Only horses.

I like the only escape best. Hot ones Only had a long neck, which would be nice if you have a mare w/ a short neck like I do... but my fave was the only escape...

I am looking for a stallion to breed to 3-4 years from now. I realize that industry bloodline preferences can change a lot in that time. Just was curious as to feedback and to see if anyone had actually seen foals by these studs.

Before breeding anything, I consider: bloodlines, conformation, long-term soundness, movement, trainability, and temperament. I believe that all of those factors are equally important and none can be overlooked. I also believe that your mare should be equal in quality to your stallion, or you have no business breeding in the first place.

I currently have a broodmare prospect right now. She's too young and unproven right now to breed to anything. I do not believe in breeding mares until they have been fully finished under saddle and proven to be sound for the long term, trainable, and good minded. I can't say for sure that I will end up breeding until I know how she turns out. Here's what I can tell you:

Lucy is a 2yo black filly out of Artful Investment- who is a proven sire within the QH industry. Her sire has 5 World Championships and over 2500 AQHA points. She is very conformationally correct, has great suspension at the trot, and drives deep at the canter. A pretty, pretty mover. With what we have done with her limited groundwork- she is very good minded and very quiet for an appendix. Probably her greatest downfall in terms of a show horse is that she sticks 15.2h right now. She will mature over 16h but may not approach the 17h mark that is big at the QH shows right now.

I have been looking for a broodmare prospect for the last 2 years. I ask that before you all recommend that I buy something instead of breeding and contributing to overpopulation, you consider the fact that I currently buy and start 4-5 prospects per year...and have the knowledge and skill to do my own training. I'm one of the good guys
