Dashin Kings Quincy - Broodmare Critique/Possible Stud Suggestions?

We have thought long and hard about breeding Dash and for years and put
It off due to the economy, our ability to focus on the foal's training, etc.
This being said, she is now 13 and we are completely in love with this
Mare. Not only is her conformation to my liking and 100% sound, she has
The most incredible movement, but more than anything else her attitude and
Gentle nature is something we would love to pass down to our next horse.
We are planning to keep the foal and train it for Western Pleasure Show,
Possibly Reining. Depending on the outcome. Note, she is 15.2 hh and a
Tad overweight right now! Working on that, she is a little too easy to keep!
Please critique her confirmation and bloodlines, I've researched and of
Course know about the Dash for cash bloodlines, a little unsure of her Dam's.

Also, who would you see her best paired with? I am truly enamored with
Mister Montana Nic Mister Montana Nic - NRHA, AQHA Performance Stallion and a few others.
Any suggestions would be more than welcome!
Thanks and have a GREAT day!

Just a note: With some more work Dash is getting ready to go back into
The WP show ring, she has also been my Husbands trail horse for the past
8 years. She is NOT a hobby horse and her foal will be trained and shown,
And if that dosen't
Pan out they will remain on our farm as an exceptional trail horse. So
Please no "to breed or not to breed" comments unless you see some glaring
Problems with her. Thanks!

Sorry, I meant please no "It's irresponsible to breed" comments.
We have been very busy for the past 7 years training/rescuing/rehabing
Horses and we've finally got the time for a baby! And only one from her
Because she is exceptional. If you see a reason with her not to breed,
I'm all ears and would love your thoughts! I would hate to have overlooked a
Fault and passed it on to a youngster, that we would love anyways!

Rather than ask us to point out any faults she has, why not tell us the faults you see? The reason so many people get jumped on about 'irresponsible breeding' on this forum is from a lack of knowledge and blindness to their mares faults. Usually it is slightly more fairies and unicorns than your post, but it is still there.

more than anything else her attitude and Gentle nature is something we would love to pass down to our next horse

So to head off any nay-sayers before they get here, tell us. What are your mare's faults, and what sort of stallion would you breed her to in order to improve on her?
    10-01-2011, 09:22 PM
Honestly the reason I'm asking is because I may be blind to her faults because
I'm having a hard time finding any. I would like to breed her to a proven
WP/reining horse. At least 15h. With a good disposition, possibly a improve
Her neck lines, and add a bit more foundation to the foal.

She is slow, smooth, and a very classy mover so a super fast racing/performance
Horse is out of the question. I'm looking for intelligence, class, cow, and a bit
Of flash. Critique away, my feelings won't be hurt. I'm hardly a defensive person
And appreciate any input. No rainbows, unicorns, fairies here. Thanks!

That is why the don't breed posse will jump on you. If you can't see your mare's faults, how can you pick a stallion that will improve them?

As far as she goes, for my taste she is too butt high and her back is too long. She seems to camp out a touch behind, and is a bit base wide at the front. While none of these are train wreck faults, she is also not 'perfect' and in my opinion, should not be bred. Every individual used to breed should be stunning and have a good reason to be breeding, rather than no good reason not to be.

She is a bit long in the loin maybe. But she does have a nice hip/croup and
She is by no means "down hill". I really like her head, pretty face is is her
#1 compliment and we've had several several offers on her. Not that that
Means she should reproduce. Her chest IMO is nice and deep, well built, I
Would hardly expect less of a nice QH.

I am looking for suggestions on a stallion who would improve her faults, I
Have a couple picked out and would like other people's opinions.
Thank you so much!

What is your price rang that you are looking to spend and are you willing to do live cover or shipped semon? These are very important questions before we could help you look at Studs.
Dose your mare have a preformance record with AQHA?
    10-01-2011, 10:38 PM
I'm looking for her records, we personally have never shown her. She supposedly has a few halter and pleasure points from her first owner. We are getting her
Ready to show in some small local amature/youth shows with my daughter 6.
I would like to take her foal as mine and go a bit further!
Price range $2,000 for the right guy, maybe a bit more. AI, shipped cooled semen most likely. We are pretty deep in AR. We've been thinking and planning on this for quite a long time.

I have a friend who has some realy nice studs. Realy good people they donated two free breadings to me a few yrs ago for a fund raser. I love thier roan, but for your mare I think Chipified would be nice.
    10-01-2011, 11:54 PM
I think Chipified is lovely! I'd like to go with more of a foundation "style" stud,
Even though she has the bit of Dash TB in her. It's been bred out,
She has very little speed yet carries the nice jog that can ride for days!
