Can't decide what stud to breed to.

I have a APHA mare that is a chestnut roan, that I would like to breed but I dont' know what one of ,y two full size studs to breed her to.
One is a registerd chestnut AQHA and the other one is an unregisterd black/white pinto. Both are very calm, jental and laid back. For pictures of them pleas go to my home page

Well, what are you breeding her for? Do you intend to sell the foal? If so, you probably want to go registered.

Do you intend to keep the foal for yourself?

What have each of these stallions done that merits your breeding to them? Other than having great personalities, what are their characteristics? Atheleticism suitable to your discipline? What have their previous offspring done?

You could always go out and buy a foal....

If you did want to breed, I would go with a registered stud who has been doing things with his career, not just standing around, getting around.

I know people around here can't hardly give a horse away... Unless your mare is something very special I would buy a foal already on the ground, you know what it looks like and potentially what it will perform best in.

I wouldnt breed her to a unregistered stud. Try to choose a stud that will compliment her good points and strengthen her weak points. Don't just "breed to breed". Also, breed for a discripline, have a goal for what you want in a foal. You can do this much easier by purchasing a foal/weanling/yearling and raising it up your own way.

i'm going to go against everyone! Teehee...

I PERSONALLY wouldnt breed to an unregistered stud. But I show in breed shows. I actually have 4 unregistered horses... 2 QH's, 1 pony, and 1 TWH. Registry doesnt matter a lot of times... and there are always state and breed type registries that you can enter horses in and so on and so forth... like one of my unregistered QH's is a registered Virginia Show Horse, whatever that means... which is.. I paid the fee...

OK, never mind... I'm with everyone else.... I'd stick w/ a registered proven horse... is your mare regsitered?

whoever you decide to breed to, make sure that the stud's strongpoints are enough to help your mare's weakpoints (and that your mare's strongpoints are enough to counter the stud's weak points )

out of the two that you have listed, what traits are you expecting to pass on to the foal?

What can the mare add to the foal's conformation?
What can the sire add to the foal's conformation?
