He's nice, but really - it takes two. It depends a lot on your mare. I've seen some pretty god awful foals from some nice stallions.

Yah do you have pic of your mare? And I noticed on the link they mention accepted mares an TB isnt one of them. Have you talked to the owners about that?

Hey, I am at work but I bought her last august and her sale page is still up on the internet. Here is a link

SportHorse Sales - Xena

**Just a note- This is a future breeding, and will not occur for about 3 years**

If you don't think she is worthy than please tell me, and also feel free to critique her.

I didn't see where the acceptable mare list is and don't have time to look all over but if it is there my guess is that they will breed only REGISTERED mares that are approved in the registries the stallion has been approved of....so is she?

Registered is one thing, APPROVED is another ball of wax entirely.

If your mare is a registered TB only the foal with end up being a GRADE horse, NOT a registered one.

Grade horses are a dime a dozen and in this economy not worth very much.

So if you are willing to pay a stud fee that is higher than what the foal will be worth then good luck.

Both your mare and that stud are a little straighter through the shoulder and hips. What are you planning to do with your baby? A little straight for a show jumper can be useful if they're athletic but a straight dressage/eventer will have problems. And a straighter made horse doesn't usually have the panache to do well in the hunters either, they tend to not be as snappy with the knees and flatter over the jump. So first figure out what you want to do with the baby. If you're breeding it as a sale prospect I would say don't do it. Your mare is decent but she's not outstanding conformationally and she has no viable show record so your chances of even breaking even on a baby are slim to none. Not trying to dash your hopes just trying to be realistic here.
