Why would you want a super long neck? When breeding to a stallion, you always go for the ideal conformation, not on the other end of the extreme of what your mare has. So she should be looking for a horse with a neck of ideal length.

equiniphile, I think you missed her next post and the general point of the thread. She was telling her it would be hard to find a stallion like that, and she shouldn't anyway because you want as close to ideal as possioble.

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.

Foal
I think it is more important what type of foals a given stallion produces, than the actual look of a stallion (which sometimes is a good indicator, but not always!).
I read this on another forum

A pedigree would tell you what the stallion should be
His looks, what he apprears to be
His foals what he actually is.


What I would do is find good honest breeders/stallion owners and ask them for a good match for your mare. Of coarse they would want to know what are your plans for the foal, preferences, and so on.

Foal
I know Chalupas Night Legend!

We were going to buy him, but he was a NASTY biter that his owner tried to fix with smacking his nose, so he was head shy and reared up once. That was all it took for us to walk away. He was handsome though!

Well I'm no longer going to breed her for now. Some day I will "have to" because they just had to put her daddy down a few weeks ago. The lady that bred her parents said she will pay for it if I breed to a palamino. I she pays for it the stud fee wount matter. She's got money coming out her ears! Lol any way. SO any way Sonador isnt going to be bred for a while. Thanks for the information though.

There is no reason to breed a horse just because her sire died. You do not "have to." And limiting yourself to stallions that are palomino just so your stud fee is covered is nonsensical.

I hope you grow to see my side of it before you breed the mare.

This post is irrational and you seem extremely inexperienced. Not somebody i'd suggest breeding horses with. ALSO, your other post said you didn't have the money to afford another horse, if you can't afford another horse.. what makes you think you can afford to breed one?
