Breeding my Paint mare

I am looking to breed my stock bred paint mare. She is 14.3 hands and I do eventing with her (most people think that she is a small thoroughbred). I want to breed her to a warmblood type stallion mainly to inherit a little bit bigger gaits and a calmer temperament. I also want a horse with a nice jump and good potential for dressage. I hope to have a foal that matures to no taller than 15.3 hands. (It will be my mares maiden birth). I am hoping to get some sort of color in the baby (either pinto or buckskin) Ive been looking at cremello wbs for a while now and just kind of switched into looking at paints for more options. However I am not going to be super picky about color as what I am really looking for is a well conformed athletic horse. Does anyone have any suggestions on stallions that may be suitable for my mare? I will attempt to post pictures of her so you can have a visual of what I am dealing with conformation/talent wise.

What are you looking to pay? And I suggest explaining why you want to breed rather than buy a foal with the qualities you want. It's a question that will definitely pop up sooner rather than later. Not sure I can see your pics on my phone but I'll try, but again all answers will depend on what you want to pay as far as stud fee.

Ok your pictures show a cute mare but do nothing to indicate conformation. I suggest taking some confo shots so we can see what you need in a stud...

I just realized that the only conformation shots that I have are from when she was a foal so that wont be a good indication of her. I am going to try to get some better conformation shots of her today. And the reason that I want to breed her instead of buying a foal is because I am just so in love with her and her personality that I want to carry on her line. I also want the experience of having a foal from day one because I have never had the chance to breed before. Tehya has a great mind and has a lot of talent and everyone seems to think that she would throw an awesome foal. But honestly the biggest reason is that I am totally in love with this mare and just want to own her baby. I dont have much a preference on how much I spend. I want a nice horse, cost is not really an issue.

The foal may not turn out to be exactly what you are looking for......and it may reflect the stud more than your mare. Breeding is a crap shoot. It may jump like crap, and not be a dressage prospect, just for starters. And "I want to own her baby" and "everyone thinks she would throw an awesome foal" are not reasons to risk her life to breed her. Neither is you just wanting the experience. JMHO.

Then you need to take into consideration the very real risk that having a foal will kill her. Especially as it is her first. What happens if it does kill her and the foal is nothing like her? Foals are not guaranteed to take on the personality of the parent.

Have you tested her for LWOS? It's frame overo. If you plan on breeding to another Paint, make sure either the stallion is negative or test your mare to find out her status or you may end up with a dead foal. Just because she is breeding stock does not mean she does not carry a pattern, she just doesn't express it enough to get full papers from the APHA. My BS APHA mare is positive for frame/LWOS.

I think those are some good reasons to breed. I know there are a lot of people on here that will try and talk you out of a foal. It is your decision... not anyone elses. I don't know any studs to look at, I am just here to remind everyone that the question was about a good stud... not if she should breed or not!

Blazing Colours Farm

To answer the original question, I love all the studs on this farm. They are located in Canada but you can contact them if interested. They are also on FB if you wanted to look them up on there.

I'd be more inclined to do a custom foal option or purchase a foal from them from this year but it's totally your choice.

True Colours Farm | Breeders of Unique Thoroughbreds, Sport Horses, and Paints

Guaranteed Gold is a nice stallion as well.

Moonrock Sport Horses - Cremello Stallion Raleighs Full Moon

Raleighs Full Moon is triple registered but make sure you test for LWO (frame)


Escapade is a very handsome black stallion.

Golden Venture Farm

Saint Sandro is nice too.

**Disclaimer** I've never met any of these horses or ridden them or owned them. I just did a bit of internet searching for you. It's totally up to you to follow through if you like any of them. And personally, I'd test your mare for frame and my personal choice of all of these stallions would be Simba Twist or Art's Aero from Blazing Colours Farm...although I love all of their stallions.

I appreciate everyone's input. However I have decided to breed her and I am not interested in purchasing a foal. I will look into having her tested. And she is actually apha registered. She just doesn't have color. 3/4 of her line is qh out of doc olina cutting lines and 1/4 is paint. I'm going to try to post more photos tonight if I can figure out how
