Hello! Stallion shopping is always super hard.
By their pictures, I like the black. He is by far the most level, and although he has a pretty long back, I like his hind end and his neck-set.
The other two, on the other hand, I do not like at all and have a hard time seeing how they can move as fast as it states. Being so incredibly downhill and long backed would make running for a job quite strenuous.
In all honesty, I think you should keep looking for better built stallions so you can get a horse that running comes easy so that he'll love his job and not have it break him down. Those guys just done scream speed to me, even though they've had success.

Well Fast Moon Chic looks like a very wonderful stud. I had a look at his offspring and some of the foals looked like they were a bit down hill. But I presume that it's because foal's legs grow at different times:
Back legs grow, then the front legs grow, then the back legs grow, then the front legs grow and so forth. I think he produces WONDERFUL offspring.

Playboy. Wonderful stud, winner as written, he too produces lovely foals. He almost to me seems somewhat ALMOST down hill. I'm not so sure.

Crimson Jess Wonderful foal colour winner too. They are all lovely, I would just go with your heart dission on what you think would be better for your mare. I have no expereince whatsoever with choosing studs. It was fun to post anyways.

I'd go with the black. He has the strongest female line. His dam is a producer.

His back is NOT long. If you look at how far back his withers tie in and then measure it, the back is very short in relation to the underline. He also has the strongest shoulder with the best slope to it.

Playboy would be my 2nd pick. His dam was a runner herself, but she has been a bit of a disappointment as far as a broodmare goes. He is also a nice looking horse though.

My least favorite is the Mr Jess Perry horse. True, he has the best record..... but he is lacking in the conformation department. He has a horrible neck and his shoulder is straighter than I personally like. Yes, the Mr Jess Perry sons are producing, but if you look at the front view of this stallion, he is severly turned in on that right front from the fetlock down.

Personally I would Choose Playboy first. I think he is the best looking of the bunch, the best pedigree by far (Dash for Cash is an amazing line, that is so versatile, with tons of speed) If you look at his offspring, they are much nicer then the Blacks, and that's what it really comes down to right, what his foals will be like?

Personally I really dislike number three. Not a nice looking horse at all.

I like the black one best, although these aren't the greatest studs I've seen.

Playboy is okay, but is back is pretty long and his neck is on the smaller side. I don't think he'd cross very well with your particular horse. I don't like Crimson at all. Has a thick neck and a very high butt. His foals aren't all that great either.

If I were you I would definitely keep looking.

Are you wanting a racing colt? How is your mare bred?

She is an appendix, with Skipper W on the QH side. I've only loped around barrels, nothing hard, but I think she shows good potential, and will decide on breeding her later on down the road. I am looking for a racing bred foal. I also have a Givemalickin bred mare that I'd also like to breed if I don't breed my other mare (unfortunately she injured herself as a 5 year old, and isn't suitable for barrels anymore). I have some more pics of the studs.
This is playboy...after looking these over im really not too fond of his shoulder.

The other sorrel is the jess perry stud
Also a few more of theres that I like...

The black is "Boots", and the sorrel is "Paradise", what do you think?

I still like the first black the best.

The two new ones you posted, the brown one isn't a good enough picture to tell what he looks like.

The sorrel doesn't have a very good shoulder. He looks extremely upright through it.

The sorrel with the bad straight shoulder is Docs Paradise, and the Bay/Black is Root Beer Boots. Im still liking fast moon chic, love his personality while playboy was very "studlike".
