I have a 14.3hh sorrel blanket Appaloosa mare. She's out of Heza Dreamcatcher and Tinys Little Breez. Dreamfinder, Alias King, Alias Smith and Jones, Tiny Charger, and Depth Charge on her pedigree. She is pretty well built but is small framed. Very smooth through all gaits, great attitude; willing, easy going, sweet. She is a maiden mare and is 10 years old.
The first stallion I'm looking at is a 4 year old 15.1hh bay roan Quarter Horse stallion. Registered name is Just Fire. His sire is Corona Fire and dam is Just Rite Blue. He is homozygous black, so when breeding your mare to him you will never get a red based colt. He is heterozygous agouti so he can throw a buckskin or bay roan as well as a solid black or a blue roan, he is also heterozygous roan so 50% of the colts he throws will be roans. Which is a plus because I'm a sucker for a color producer!
The second stallion I'm looking at is a 16 year old 15.2hh sorrel Quarter Horse stallion. Registered name is No Compromises. Sire is Takin On The Cash and dam is Special Delivery. He is 1300 pounds and has a speed index of 105. He has proven speed that has passed on to his babies. He has sired AAA race horses, proven barrel and rope horses and all around family horses.
They are both $500 stud fee. I can't get pictures off of the ad but they are both on Barrel Racing at Barrel Horse World, Barrel Horses for Sale, Barrel Racing Forums, Equine Health Articles, Western Tack, and more. I'll attach the links to both of them-

I'm looking for something that will have enough speed and will to run barrels, but be level headed enough to be a trusty trail/pleasure horse also. My mare is very level headed and easy going, no buck, bite, kick, bolt and barely any spook. She was a 3D barrel horse and that was only running every now and then, and could probably be a nice 2D horse if she would stay sound enough for it. She is consistently lame but is sound for trail and pleasure riding.
Also, if anyone knows Appaloosa's, could you clue me in on if my mare is bred well? She is my first Appaloosa and I'm unsure on who is prominent on her papers.
