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)
