    It is going to be hard to find a horse with a short enough back to balance her out AND a super long neck - generally short backed horses are compact all over.

    Yeah I know. I just want to find the closest I can. Oh and just a question. Does her neck look to short to you??? I'm no good at conformation so I'm just going by what other people tell me. I do know that her back is to long but that's all that I know.

    Eh, it is a bit short, but it wouldn't bother me personally too much.

    I guess my point is, don't pass on good, well conformed stallions because they don't ahve a freakishly long swan neck - Breeding is a crapshoot, and you may well end up with a foal that threw the neck to daddy and has a freakishly long neck! Better to breed to something close to ideal instead of an extreme.

    The first one: I like him as a horse, but for breeding - Holy upright pasterns! He also has a longer back so wouldn't be the best match.

    Driftwood something: Eh - I can't see anything glaringly wrong, but there are no good confo pics, and he just seems kind of 'average'...

    Pally paint: I quite like his build, though looks like he hasn't done much of anything so he isn't tested for performance. He has a nice short back though and his neck is pretty good, nice shoulder too.

    Last one: Can't tell a thing from that photo, and he also looks to have done nothing of note.

    You are still to give information about her age, previous foaling,if you intend to keep the foal sell it on, her previous riding, what you want the foal to do.
    Do you want a decent horse size or are you looking for a pony?
    Where is she going to be staying for birth etc? Have you experienced people at hand through out her gestation ad birth should something go wrong? Are you sending her to stud or small breeders? How far are you willing to travel? How much can you afford for stud fee? Have you got a reliable vet who has been involved in foaling? If circumstances change are you willing to sell your foal?
    All of this information needs to be considered.
    Also to go to stud your mare can't have hind shoes and must have all vaccinations.
