My first, mammoth post just got eaten by the computer
So here we go again.
I plan to breed my mare in the future. I always have a long list of stallions I like in my head - I avidly follow results and general information on new/upcoming stallions, well, any ASH horses. This is a place for me to show you guys stallions I might pick for my mare, and see what you think, and wether they would compliment her/suit my goals. I have never bred before so any and all information I can soak in now will be helpful!
I won't be breeding Lucy for a few years, at least, and breeding is contingent on her proving herself in the show ring and staying sound (And me deciding the risk is acceptable - Still not sure on that one!).
Lucy is a 14.1h ASH mare, 4yo. You will have to take my word on her bloodlines - Good, well known sire line proven to work cattle well, and a hardy mountain horse dam line. She has a fantastic temperament.
Conformation wise, I generally like her. I do have slight things I would try to improve on though. I would aim for a bit more substance, length and shape to her neck. Really a bit more substance overall, especially the shoulder and hindquarter, and bone in the legs. I also would like to shorten her body up a little bit, and a slightly finer head.
This is Lucy:
On to the boys. All are registered ASH so the foal will be studbook registered. Foal will be used for ASH showing and campdrafting - think working cow horse type manouvers and skills but two handed in a more english frame. All boys are well bred.
1. Glen Lee Rivoli Ray Tech. Extensive show record. Only horse to win every available supreme title at the nationals in 2002. Progeny winning also. 14.3h. Only a link for him.
2. Talisman Fiddler. Taller than the others at 15.3h. Successful at ASH shows when younger, now doing dressage and eventing. His page here.
3. Silverthorn Shotgun. Was badly injured as a yearling but is now showing sound. Have followed this guy for a while now, not sure what it is that appeals to me but I just like him. I've met him in real life. His page here.
4. Waylon J Justice. From my favourite sire line. Not proven as a working horse but 100% proven as a show horse, progeny as well. His page here.
5. Jarendan Just Is. Only a young horse, but doing great in the ring. A son of the above Waylon J Justice. His page here.
6. Cadabra. Same sire line as Waylon J Justice but more experience and success as a working horse. Just came back from a stint in Canada showing in Working Cow Horse. His page here.
7. Ervines Rollex. Another who was very successful in futurities/maturities. His page here.
8. Luckenough Baseline. Only new to showing, but a nice type. He is the pally on this page.
That will do for now :]
