He is not abnormally long to me, but is a little long for what I would look for. I'm not an expert and am learning as I go along by talking to as many people as possible. That might have been where my mare got her bit of a long back. She is by The Flashy KingXBoogies Flashy JacX Hollywood Jac 86 whom I believe Hollywood Dun It is out of, right?

They are massive, aren't they! I'm going to dig out a pic of my mare's grandsire and sire and see what y'all think of them if ya don't mind?

Hollywood Dun It is by Hollywood Jac 86 Costom Crome is by Crome plated Jac by Hollywood Jac 86. Both are considered long backed by reining standards yet both performed very well and sired very well. So at the end of the day it is not something I would consider bad as long as the rest of the horse matchs.

My Boggies Flashy Jac stud has a longish back and he performed and sire very well as well.

I'm very possitive that I know what I want to breed. Just kind of hard to decide when you love to compete in a many events as possible. I'm sticking to Western Pleasure and HUS.

If I decide to rein again then I'll get a special breeding for myself.

I had one lesson in cutting with the flag and that was a whole lot of fun :) I'm surprised I didn't fall off! So that might be another possibility.

I'm still kind of curious. Does anyone have any favorite WP and HUS studs they like? I'm making a list of studs that I like an wonder how they'd cross with the mare I currently have, which is being bred in March. I wont be able to get a new mare just yet. I'll post my list later when I settle down enough to think straight

I think that may be where she gets hers, lol. I couldn't find a side shot of Boogies Flashy Jac or The Flashy King anywhere, so much for that!!! I'd love to see pics of him if you have one? I love seeing horses by that line! I almost bought another mare to breed to Boogie, but am just financially destitute until I get my degree and start my carreer, lol. Its hard trying to get world class horses on a below average pay grade, lol.

Takes work. I have some very nice mares and have nothing out of pocket into then.

Ya, I figure I'm 21 now (soon to be 22), will have my RC foal (if she takes) when I'm 23, by the time I'm 25, I should have her/him in training and be through with school (at least my RN classes) and be making enough money to support one horse in training, then maybe breed my mare to another really nice horse (Chic Please) and do the pattern where I have a really nice foal every couple years that I either keep or sell. In the mean time, while I'm working, I'll be taking classes to get my bachelors in nursing, then maybe a masters, if I'm not school sick by that time!!!! So, by the time I'm 30 and have completed all of the above, I'll be able to work 4 days a week making great money, and can show/ride these great horses myself!!!

I've seen people breed mares out of bloodlines alone. No show record, how would you go about that? Not that i'll buy a mare and do that. I'd like to do some showing first, but it was worth asking.

I reall would not do that. You lean so much by training them & showing them. Also the value of the foal is much much higher.
