Wait a tic...found the other side of it.
paint at stud

"For the person posting to not breed to Scenic Jet Jewel you need to stop! Just because things did not work out for you does not mean that people should not breed to him. He is a wonderful respectful stallion. Your mare was a maiden mare and we did what was right by not breeding her anymore this heat cycle to prevent infection. This is slander what you are doing and you need to stop! If you feel this is the way to get rid of ur frustrations that is fine but then I will call my attorney. Please stop! For people wondering what happened, well it is a scenario that unfortunately us horse breeders deal with once in awhile. "

Wait...are you breeding her or selling her?
Beautiful Percheron Mare

Definitely wouldn't go the "if she won't sell I'll just breed her" route...if that's what you're doing. Not saying you are.

To start off, this aged paint stallion demonstrates downhill conformation. He's wasp-waisted, or in other words not deep enough in his flank. He has a long, weak back and a short neck that ties in poorly to his steep shoulder. His badly angled croup supports a tail set too high. He has short cannon bones in the front, as well. This is all I can tell, as there are no other angles to this picture.

The OP's picture of the mare isn't a good conformation picture, but from what I can tell she has a short back and downhill conformation, as well as a steep but rounded croup.

All things considered, I once again say no.
Thanks that's a good explanation.

Your mare is cute :). I agree that the studs tail is very high, but other then that I like his looks. I would definitely want to know what his personality was like before breeding to him though. Raising a foal can be so much fun, just remember that things don't always go as expected. Sometimes the foal won't be as pretty as you'd hope but that doesn't mean they won't be an excellent riding horse and friend.

Thank you for all the critique, after thinking about it and again seeing/hearing the risks of a very poor conformation possibility IF I were to breed her it would be to a Percheron Stud. There are good and bad outcomes from the cross and with all the drama found out about the stud, it's going to be a no go. IMO you can't really take either side unless you know what happened, and there's so much drama that has unfolded. He IS a very good looking stud. But he has come into question with other breedings. She has assured there is no issue, I know her on a personal level. But again, it's NOT worth risking my mares safety at all, no matter what happened.

@mudpie, I understand the critique thank you! It was a bad picture, and she does look funny in that picture after looking, she looks VERY shrunk, short and downhill. Although not the case, besides being a little short backed.

@Bridgertrot, Was going to sell her a while ago, I renewed the post on accident while trying to renew another one for a horse blanket I'm selling. A very buddy sour gelding had attached to her, she had no interest. I was boarding though and did not want her hurt. This gelding would not stop. It was to the point where no training would help. The gelding would jump fences, break fences, just about anything to get to her, I felt she was in danger and had to get rid of her. I had a friend take her in for a few months. Now that gelding is gone, she is home and better than ever thank god.

Thank you all! It really is nice to have other people's opinions, whether good or bad I appreciate them all. I'm sure we've all become headstrong when we see a flashy stud and would love to think of the perfect foal. Perfect foals can be one in a million, or maybe can be yours, as some of the other posters have said. Studs can throw color and can both have good conformation, but that isn't always said for the foals. I'm not one to jump into things, and I think this would not be one situation to start. I want to do what's best, and right. Will not be breeding her for a while, if ever depending on what happens, until I can find a suitable Percheron stud.

Thank you all again. (:

I too, do not like the looks of that stallion. For all of the above reasons stated. After seeing him, I lookes him up to see if there are more pictures, maybe it was just that one. I got to their website and still don't like the stallion.

The site says he has many championship and stuff, but im not sure how. He doesnt look like grand champion apha material to me. His headset is WAY high under saddle too.

He's definitely got color though...
