Good to know, perhaps I'll look more into that. I was also PM'd a link to another stallion who I like, ugh.

I looked at Limet Hurry but he has a very short neck as well. I actually think BED is better suited to my mare. I can't get over his babies - I'm no expert but I saw several that I REALLY liked.

I know you have your short list narrowed down, but I ran across this guy in a magazine today and fell in love so I figured I'd share. He's young, but I really like his movement and build.

Love Hemmingway's movement, he looks like a comfortable ride!

I still love (in this order):

Eskudo II
Diamond Stud
Color guard

Sir Wanabi looks a bit long backed for your mare, I don't *love* his movement, and from what *I have seen* (we have 2 foals out of Sir Wanabi the mares were TB) His foals are a great improvement over the mares, they are both pretty foals, and are easy to handle and super sweet. Good luck with the search

Well, of COURSE my list has changed again. BUT, it truly is narrowed down now. I never did hear back from Blue Eyed Dream's owner or a few other stallion owners so I nixed those particular ideas. I've been in touch with Jennifer at Dreamscape Farm and she is so helpful so far. Plus, the farm is in BC (relatively close to me).

So, I'm down between two of her studs....

Bon Balou and Diamond Stud (I added a pic of Bon Balou below)

I like Bon Balou better to be honest after looking closely at both. He is built a big lighter than Diamond Stud which I like for crossing with River.

Both stallions scored well in their stallion tests, and both seem to have the ability to go dressage or jumping.

BUT, they are having a special on Diamond Stud breedings for the next five days, so stud fee will be half price. I'd save $900 if I book asap to him, rather than breeding to Bon Balou. I know the stud fee is the cheapest part about a foal, but River IS a maiden mare, and I don't know what she'll throw at all anyway.

Decisions decisions! What does everyone think? For River, Bon Balou or Diamond Stud? (I need to try to push out the little voice that keeps reminding me of the $900 difference lol)

I like them both....BUT im a sucker for a flashy chestnut, soooo I vote Bon Balou! It also looks like his neck is longer then DS, and his limbs look more refined. Im glad I am not in your shoes, there are too many lovely stallions to choose from!

My vote is Bon Balou. Looks like he'd cross well on your mare :)
