Potential Stallions

What do you guys think about this stallion?

Ima Quick Dream Maker

Do you guys know anything about him, his pedigree, or his progeny? From looking at the site, his offspring seem just stunning to me.

As some of you know, we have been looking to add some height to some of the horses on our farm. Originally, I have been looking for actual mares around 16 hands, but I never thought about breeding our mare to an outside stallion. I am not sure what that stallion (16.1h) and our sorrel AQHA mare (15h) would produce height wise, but before considering all of that, I wanted some input on this stallion.

Additionally, if you guys know of any well bred, successful performance stallions known to throw size, I would be interested in taking a look. :)

I am of course still dying of anticipation for our baby out of our stud, but am just trying to do some future planning. :) :)

I also think he s stunning, and has a nice show record to back it up. I'm assuming you are breeding for halter?
Only thing that stands out, and is really minor, is his back pasterns are a tad upright (typical in halter), and hes slightly downhill. He also looks slightly mutton withered, and I've noticed that in his foals as well.
Aside from height, what else are you looking for in the stud?
Have you visited painthorsestallions.com? They have a wonderful selection of stallions!

I am actually not looking for a halter horse...but he does not look too too halter type, so I was curious about him. I am actually looking for performers. I have the stock type now, and I would like to also have some more leggy types for WP and HUS. One of our riders (akshowgirl) is quite a jumper/english rider, so I would like to have horses that she could compete on as well. :)

I will definitely check out that web site...thanks! Thanks for the critiques of him also. :)

Okay, I checked out that site. Great, by the way, and want to spend more time looking at it, but I liked the look of

Mr. candy Man. He is more of a performance sire, which is actually more what I am looking for.

Opinions?

The first one is posty legged, and is downhill. Most likely the foal will have those defect also.

Second one, i don't facy that much i really don't like the build. At all.

Personally i'd go with the first one.

Okay, here is another one. I will have to email to find out how tall he is, as I don't see it listed. Also, he is not homozygous.

Opinions?

EDIT: The owner replied, and he is only 15h. She does offer a color guarantee, with a free breeding if he turns out a solid foal.

The first one, i was blown away by his coloring. He looked like a painting in that second picture.

I wasn't too fond of Candy Man, but the last one i liked also.

Are you looking to definitely get color on the foal? or would you rather have a leggy foal ?

lol thats ok!


Well if the third isn't homozygous, i wouldn't go with him just because you aren't 100% guarrenteed color (i hope anyways)

I would go with the first one. He was very pretty and like you said, didn't have the typical halter look
