That's how we like it. Mares in the show pen first. Foals in training later down the road.

It's just scarry that people would do that and I've met breeders who do that.

Im breeding my mare, who doesn't really have a show record that matters, other than an extreme cowboy race, lol. I know of a lot of people who do. The mares foals are still just as talented IMO as long as they are bred really well. Even if I had the funds, her knee would of kept her out of the show pen most likely.

I could have done it with my dun it mare. Sire and dam both very proven proven cross. At the end od the day it pays big time to have a show proven mare

Ya, the foals generally go for a lot more, and will sell over a baby with only one proven parent. The way I look at it is that I'm starting on the bottom and working my way up as more opportunities become available with more funds. I'd love to have some really nice show mares!

Stud List

After taking the time (as mentally tired as I am) I have come up with a list of good sires that I think would make a great adition to my program.

*Note: based off the mare(s) I buy's bloodlines, the list may or maynot change. There will only be maybe two more mares to start out for a while so here's the list I think I am able to afford.

Western Pleasure
VS Code Red

Huntin For Chocolate

One Hot Krymsun

SBR Formula One

My Final Notice

No Doubt Im Lazy

Only In The Moonlite

Certain Potential

Zips Chocolate Chip

Vested Pine

Pure Dynamic

Blazing Hot


HUS
Iron Age

These Irons Are Hot

Indian Artifacts

HBF Iron Man


Reining
Big Chex To Cash

Smart and Shiney

The Great White Hope

Twice As Shiney

Smart As Whiz

Well I have had a Smart and Shiney colt. Which I like very much. Already sold and to his new home. I am breeding my Dun It mare to Great White Hope this year most likely. Good deal on stud fee. Taking a big chance. Hope it pays off.

NRHA If you don't mind a suggestion. Whodini has a free stud fee this year and I think conformationally he would cross amazing with your mare.
