Why don't you just buy? I see nothing special about that stud above.

Beautiful horses but I'm with the others. If you want a specific color/patterned paint, it's best to go find it instead of trying to breed for it because there is no guarantee. However I know wxactly what you mean about loving her and having her for generations to come. I am awaiting my my first foal this year and am very excited to see what her and the homozygous tobiano stud I bred her to produces color wise!

she has never had a foal before she has been bred though before i had her she was in a big herd and the stallion bred to her but she had a miss carrage because they think that she got kicked in the stomache

She just turned 17 this year and we have had a full vet check last week to make sure she is ok to breed. we will be doing frozen or cooled semen.

Since she is older and maiden you are risking her more please choose very wisely and research have multiple vets numbers in case of emergency and dont rush into it. I still believe you should go buy something however you seem set.

I think a Homozygous Tobiano would be your best bet. You may get a paint from that stallion but you may not. I'm no colour expert but I think you will have a 50/50 chance. Shalom

I'm another vote for buying instead of breeding. There are SOO many young prospects out there that you would be interested in... I don't agree with breeding for color, breeding just because you want a cute baby from your mare, or just want to foal experience...Those are NOT reasons to breed... I'm also against it because she's an older mare, is a maiden, and has already had a miscarriage.

I can see the pictures just fine. Has she had prior foals? Have you concidered breeding to a stallion who doesn't carry frame?
