Good cross for my APHA mare?

Hi All,

I am considering breeding Whiskey this year... we just got back from the National Western Stock Show, she was high point solid breed stock and got her first 3 points in Hunter Under Saddle. The solid classes were painfully small, and as I stood there watching class after class for regular registry horses go through, I decided I want to try for a show baby.

I realize you breed for performance first, BUT I do want to go with homozygous as my girl will continue to show solids, but I want a regular registry baby to start in halter, then lungeline, then two year old classes. I think Whiskey has enough nice qualities she can produce me a nice show quality foal that I couldn't afford to buy outright.

Her name is Mayanna Gun. By The Big Gun - APHA World Champion and multiple World Champion sire who is by Gunner. Though she is reining / speed bred, she is about 15.2 as a now 4 year old. Very sweet, gentle, pretty mare. I've talked about her quite a bit on this forum. We took her to World Show with just over 6 months under saddle, and we placed 2nd under one judge in Hunt Seat Eq. She is still green under saddle, we started her last May... Here is a pic and video:


I was considering Gentlemen Send Roses, I really like the slow legged, typey look his babies have - and the guaranteed color (as long as a baby comes safely) is a huge plus.
Any one have any thoughts on a nice cross for her?

Thanks, Kris

I suppose I should add I would like an all arounder... I like the pattern classes much more than rail, so would be most interested in the SMS, eq, trail, horsemanship and eventually western riding....

He's a very nice one too!! Do you want foals on the ground from the stallion? I think this one is nice too although he's new.

Ponies... I really like Special Invitation... I should look into what owners are saying about their babies... there is a gamble in choosing an unproven stud, and I don't like that they don't have any confo shots of Invite The Artist... but he has great color and a cute head...

Painted Pastures, seems like the Tramp is more halter... definitely looking for more performance type... I do like how the unproven stud moves...

I would second this cross as well! GSR is an awesome stud, great minded, and you would get a really nice performance baby.

I really like Gentleman Send Roses and Special Invitation. If it were my mare, I'd use Special Invitation. I've always like him and there's just something about him that ALWAYS catches my eye.

There's another stallion that I really like and has been producing lots of nice babies.

Oh what's his name...?

Will Spot Ya, Homozygous black and tobiano. OLWS Negative.

And...

All Time Fancy

If it was me, I'd be on the fence between Will Spot Ya and Special Invitation. Yum!
