sorry to say......
I have a stallion and I have been so lucky, he is well mannered and an absolute dream. His blood lines are great and also everything about him is strong and good. We are not planning to breed from him until he can prove himself in disiplines....if he can't then unfortunate for him...he will get his nackers cut off.
Im sorry to say but I would never put one of my mares to your stallion. He will make a nice gelding, but as a stallion I think you will have more luck trying to knock a brick wall down with your head!

Just looked at the home page......if your even thinking about advertising your stallion.......present him well.....have a bit of dignity and at least brush him first!!!!!
The fences as well.....i would not even let my cat go in that field...sorry but in thinking for a trainer.....your not too wise!!!!!!

Backyard breeding sucks. Don't try it at home, kids.

Ignoring the breeding portion of this thread...

Just wondering... Why is everyone against Impressive?

Hypp can be traced back to him. Ugly ugly condition. Makes a horse worthless, really, because there is no treatment or cure.

I just wanted to add - I don't really mean to put anybody down with the comments about the website. But it really doesn't do them or their cause any justice to have so many glaring errors. Craigslist gets to me, too.

AND - I speak from experience - we also have a stallion who would make such a sweet gelding. I do have my Rain, thanks to him, but would be very happy to be sure that Rain didn't have any fugly brothers and/or sisters in the future.

That's a terrible reason to be against Impressive bred horses. If the horse is HYPP/NN then it CAN NOT pass on the gene because it DOES NOT carry the gene. I am a huge fan of the Impressive bred horses. I find it a horrible shame that people scratch Impressive breds off their list for that reason alone. If it's NN then it is without that gene.

Also, while I personally would never own an HYPP positive horse, it can be controlled through nutrition and some drugs. It can not be cured and is a very dangerous disease that will end the horses life eventually. BUT as I said before, if the horse is HYPP/NN then it is free of the disease.

I looked this Stud up in allbreedpedigree and could not find him, so I went to the AQHA horse search. I spelled it several different ways and came up with "The horse does not exist". Are you certain this horse is a registered Quarter Horse? Are you certain it is HYPP/NN?

I read your ad and feel the need to say that you are displaying attributes that are the very definition of a backyard breeder. How can you describe how he breeds when he's never been bred?

I have no issue with an Impressive bred horse as long as it N/N. This particular stallion my dislike has nothing to do with him being Impressive lines. It has to do with conformation.

I have commented on this thread and I advised to geld, but it was not because of the Impressive in his pedigree.

I would not breed an N/H or H/H horse, but I have nothing against Impressive in a pedigree AT ALL. I just didn't think the colt-- his conformation, his circumstances or etc.-- merited being left a stallion when there are similarly bred stallions out there who have much much more going for them.

Here is a mare I own,



And her pedigree-- This Kid Is Serious Quarter Horse

She is N/N, as were her parents. So see? Impressive is not a dealbreaker for me whatsoever.

She's fat and out of shape in the photos, and just standing out in the pasutre, but she IS clean
