know I don't have any pictures of my new mare, Pepper. She, of course, hasn't arrived yet, so I won't for another week or two. Simply by her papers and the info I provide, which stallion would you choose? Raving Tari Quarter Horse
I personally know JJM Brooksundun, Sunnys Perfect Miss, Bar Money Sunny, and Birthday Barbee. John Murnane is a good friend of mine, and I had the privelege to be the 9th person to ever sit on Sunny, the Buckskin Legend, at the age of 27, and the year John swore he was quitting to outside mares. Sunny has proven to share WONDERFUL lines.
Pepper is OOO conformation, even. She has a pretty steep shoulder, but a decent wither, not too flat, not to tall. She is built wide and big boned, but has pretty small feet. Think Bulldog on terrier legs. (That was an exaggeration, of course, lol) She's quick, she'll dump you off the side, but doesn't have "wheels" so she's not overly fast. Her sire has foaled 3 Kansas Buckskin Breeders Futurity winners, carries 7 crosses to King, and is homozygous for black points. I don't know a whole lot about the dam, only that she is sorrel and has been leased a few times in the past. Pepper is BLACK, black, no light points to make her truly "brown." She has heart, AND stamina, and she wants at everything she can track or cut, soft in the face, super responsive to leg, and super quick learner. She has foaled one (now) gelding, coming 2, and we are soon to see the outcome of him when training begins, I believe in May.
These stallions I just pulled out of the stallion registry, and we're looking to stay in the 2500-3000 max range because we really don't show, ourselves, and the get would either be solely our own, or sold to someone who would show. Would be later on down the line after we've shown a few or even taken the steps toward breeding.. which is not presumed for the next couple years, as the last 2 years she has cycled late and hasn't been bred, so we've put it on hold until we can get her under some lights as well.
Here are my thoughts, and if you have any other suggestions, all are welcome! Color would be great, but definitely NOT necessary! Oswood Stallion Station
I love that he's got Peppy San Badger right there on top, and Smart Little Lena right on bottom. The little bitta roan helps too... lol. AND his performance record, of course. Oswood Stallion Station
This guy has just as nice lines, more roan, not paint, and add a little Freckles Playboy... all on top of a lesser price! Oswood Stallion Station
Fabulous lines, and would most likely bring out more of Haidas Little Pep for a double-bred colt, but a higher price tag. http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/inde...small_font=1&l
And this stallion is by the same mare that my DREAM MARE, Instant Pistol, is out of... and I'm really excited he's by Dual Pep. Lenas Telesis Quarter Horse
Look what I found! Own son of Doc OLena Lenas Telesis By Doc O'Lena out of Preliminary Plans
And I like Ol' Yeller here too: Palo Duro Cat » Brightstone Ranch
Not necessarily because he was an outstanding performer, but because his parents were.
