Blackjack on the other hand is a 1994 stallion-- does he have additional offpsring you can see? 2 foals is not many to review, from a 16 year old stallion. They mention him specifically as a good potential sire for ponies, and he himself is 14.1-- do you want a smaller horse? Because he is smaller, and sounds like he probably sires smaller as well.
These two stallions appear to be very different types and bloodlines from one another, from what I can tell. What do you want to do with the foal? Do you have a good conformation shot of the mare, and a link to her pedigree?
here is Jasmine's pedigree: Arzu Arabians - Mares/Filly's
And I will ask Shahgal's owners if they have that and get back to you. And for arabians the smaller is usually better. For the foal I am wanting to show and possibly breed it when it gets older, I am not picking about what exactly we show in most the time I base it of what the horse individual likes to do I am not picky I love all types of riding. I probably will want to show it in halter to tho but like I said only if the foal is right for that.
