    I would like to see better confo shots of both. You want the match to compliment your mare as well as have a chance of reducing any of her faults.
    Personally, the chesnut does have a certain something about him that is appealing, but you have to try not to let that destract you from any flaws.
    His back legs, for one, I do not like. And there is something funny about his front knees.
    Cannot say anything about the palomino stud

    Between the two, I would have to say that the chestnut is most appealing... The one thing that I don't like, though, are his back legs, although they look slightly better than the palomino's, who's seem to be slightly straighter. Is that a gaited breed thing? Because all three of them have it to varying degrees...

    I think it is a foxtrotter thing. They are built just slightly different, I don't know why though. I might have to get out one of my gaited horse books and check out the confo section to see what I can learn. I have some photos of my mares confo from last year but that was recently after she had her unexpected foal that I was lied to about, so she doesn't look in shape at all and has some muscle lacking issues. I can put those up though so you can see her legs at least.

    More photos as requested. Here is of my mare. I can try with the studs but the owner hasn't emailed me back yet.

    Now she has had some trimming on her hooves so she isn't so darn toed out, but being a bit toed out is generally ok with gaited horses because if they were as straight as an arrow they may kick themselves when they overstep from gaiting- Reference "Gaits of Gold" by Brenda Imus.

    She also was standing a bit like a doofus in this photo. She doesn't stand that underneath herself in front 95% of the time. It's difficult to get a good squared up photo of her I do apologize. She always fidgets to see where I am so then she moves her hooves.

    Your mare is stunning. Is that a previous foal of hers?
    Oh and I love the chestnut stud, but I am partial to dark redheads as that is what my Saddlebred is.

    That makes sense... Every gaited horse I've seen has had back legs like that to some degree, so I'm assuming that it's necessary for their gaits- maybe it has to do with smoothing the gaits, since it looks like those legs would swing forward without as much 'push and bend' or springy action, if that makes sense... I think I'm going to have to do a bit of research now, haha
    Regardless, though, she is a stunning horse. I think either stallion would give you a very nice foal paired with her... there really is something about the chestnut that draws the eye, maybe it's his color, I don't know. Both look very well put together. His legs were my only real reservation because they seem to be more extreme, but if it's just a breed thing, it shouldn't matter.

    While I would really like to see better confo pix of the chestnut, specifically his legs, I do like him a lot better than the pali.

    Davy's got more substance where the pali seems rather...dainty.

    I too like the heavier bone on the chestnut. Legs and hooves thick enough to last!

    If I do remember correctly you are correct with the swinging of the legs. Gaited horses are so smooth because their legs do swing and don't have a whole lot of action. They are meant to reduce shock because they don't create the impact :) Cool huh?

    WSArabians- I WISH! I love him! Haha. But, alas, I do not have the facilities or the need for a stud as he can't be ridden. Oh trust me if he could be ridden I would have already inquired on an offer lol

    Smrobs and hemms- I completely agree with you. I like how beefy Davy is. Cascade is eh in my books because 1. I like it when a horse is a bit beefier, and 2. While Cascade is pretty he is far to dainty for my likes. I would like a foal with more meat to it that I think Davy could provide. Plus Davy's offspring are almost all trail horses with a few endurance mounts in there as well.

    I want to go breed her now dangit. Where's my miracle stud fee falling from the sky?...and the transportation fee?

    On that note, how much do you guys think it would cost to trailer her to Spokane, WA from Wilton, ND? Take a gander. I have no clue. If my fiancee and I decide to do it for sure we would most likely go this summer and make a fun road trip out of it for us both. (however I would be about to pop with out first child at that time so maybe a road trip would not be as fun as I envision...)
