Alright, I've been looking at the two-time National Welsh stallion, *Wedderlie Mardi Gras, for YEARS! He's my favorite stallion in the world. I have the crazy weird thing with falling for horses that happen to be palomino.. I don't even like the color that much.. I would much prefer a bay with chrome.

Here's the expectation page. I'm looking at the first cross, and the last cross.

I like the other foals out of this cross. Reference photos of the past two filies:

Curtain Call's 2010 foal:
Now, I sent an email to the breeder asking basic questions. Since these foals are yet to be on the ground, she game me an estimate. $4,000-$7,500. I want two very nice crosses. I really want a foal out of one of the two crosses. My only condition is for it to be a filly. That's why I chose two crosses. She still hasn't gotten back to me when I asked about the availability of these two crosses outcome foals.
The foal would be hauled for Oregon, to my place in Virginia. Hopefully next January.I want a hunter pony, competing at state levels, maybe nationals, a mild halter horse, and an exceptional broodmare behind that. I may also start the pony with a cart. I'm not sure. I'll buy the foal as a weanling, and work it until it has a "name" for itself, and a career under it's belt before I breed it.
What do you all think?
