Then look for something that will compliment her and not something based off color because if you breed tk the first paint stud you could end up with a foal that has major conformation faults or in an extreme case a lethal white ending in a dead foal, not trying to be mean just trying to help you.

I have no trouble seeing the pictures. If you are going to breed her, DO NOT BREED TO A FRAME CARRIER! You would have a 25% chance of a lethal white foal and be devastated. Any stallion you look at needs to be tested negative for frame. You could breed to any other color pattern, but there is never a guarantee for the color genes being expressed.

Your mare is for sure frame.. I still stand behind what I said. If you want color, buy it, don't breed it.

I was thinking of breeding her to an tobanio but it still has to be tested for lethel white I am getting her tested to. I was also thinking of breeding her to zanton firewater what do you think of him?

At the time I was posting no pictures were visible and there was no album visible on her profile.

If your really set on breeding instead of buying, I would be looking at homozygous tobiano stallions. There's still a chance that you can get a VERY minimally expressed pattern (to where they may look solid) but your chances will be fairly good for getting a colored foal.

I wouldn't choose a stallion just based off of color. Really do your research and pick apart each stallion that your looking at. People here are absolutely wonderful with finding conformation flaws so the more stallions you find, the better chance you will have of finding the perfect stallion.

Really good conformation pictures of your mare is going to help tremendously for getting proper help to pick a stallion to cross with your mare.

"The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with
him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."
