PS - I'm only 5'3" so if I end up with a 17hh baby I don't know what the heck I'm going to do. Carry a ladder?

diamond stud is definitely my favorite horse! but, as far as breeding him to your mare the only reason i didnt choose him was because a baby by the two of them might be a bit heavy.

Ha Ha No, I mean I like a horse with uphill conformation, rather then butt high. Uphill is better for both jumping and dressage, generally speaking.

Oh and I doubt the foal would be 17 hands as your mare is fairly small. That said, if it is, and we are all spending time on this forum, I want to see a video of the first time you climb up onto that saddle. ha ha

I like State Of The Art myself. I think he looks a little lighter then the rest, and seems balanced all round... I'm not any expert though.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

Haha I knowwww! Wallaby pointed out that several of the horses looked like they were standing on a hill.

And yeah, I seriously doubt it too... but what IF!

I'm no expert EITHER, but doesn't State of the Art have a better shoulder angle than Glorioso? But Glorioso has a better hindquarter?

You can easily test that by running the picture on the screen down to the bottom. Are both the front and the back feet on the bottom? It will be off a little just because of angle but a horse on a hill will show up that way.

I Like Glorioso and Color Gaurd. the others I dont care for the backs, and legs and knees. The last paint stud , but his neck ties in low. the first two stallions are more correct in confirmation than any of the others.

okay well my list, as it currently stands (still have a lot of thinking to do) goes:

1. Glorioso
2. State of the Art
3. Color Guard/Diamond Stud.. I can't choose :(

Color Guard because of his neck... that's one thing thing I would REALLY like to improve on in River. Diamond Stud is #3 only because he, too, is built very solidly... TOTALLY my type of horse, but to achieve something a bit more like that, I need to cross River with something lighter.
