    Thank you GH, but I think I'm set on Mobster! He is really something. Bridgertrot, I actually really wanted a Cremello/Perlino out of my breeding to RC, but that wasn't meant to be. Smrobs, I actually hadn't heard of him before today either, which is surprising! That is amazing, Saddlestrings! I am going to ask if I can make the customary trip to go see the stallion in person this spring so maybe Ill run into you!

    I can't believe how its worked out! I've asked about a couple of different stallions and haven't heard back but from one other person besides Mobster's crew. I called the contact number after 5, so thought for sure I wouldn't get a hold of anyone that day. Imagine my surprise when I got a call around 7, and by the owner himself!

    I asked a couple questions about the breeding fee and terms, then talked some with him about my mare, her foal to be born next year, and talked some about Mobster! He said he is really an easy horse to get along with, which I believe considering the pics of him with a little boy hugging his face!

    The owner said he bred about 10 mares to him in between 2 shows this year and people are already asking to buy the foals in utero, so the marketability should be there! He is going to show him in a couple more major shows for the earnings, I believe.

    Anyways, the owner and stallion are both incredibly nice, so Im going to go with it for the 2015 foal! I just love him and am so glad I stumbled across this stallion on Facebook today! I like him just about as much as I liked RC and am just as excited for this cross!

    Strange, I used to live really close to him and never heard of him. Lol

    EDIT

    Why does he look lame at the end of the first video on his page?

    It kind of looked like he maybe took a misstep during his slide at 2:45 because his last slide didn't seem as comfortable as the first two.

    He probably did knock himself during one of the slides, though I can't tell if it was the one you're talking about or the last one.

    That little bit of gimp wouldn't worry me at all. Having grown up around performance horses doing reining and roping and working cow horse, mild lameness after a run from hitting themselves or stepping wrong and tweaking a joint isn't uncommon. Those are high impact sports done at high speed.

    Ohh! I actually saw Mobster on facebook a couple weeks back - I didn't think anything of him, except "pretty."

    Now that I'm seeing him in more detail, I really like him! It'll be a nice cross I bet. Can't wait for the baby thread...Long time in the making...Hehe.

    I've been lurking on this thread for a while now, and also wanted to say that I am very excited for the foal - with parents like those, he or she is sure to be droolworthy. I followed Josie's last foaling thread and look forward to doing it again! Good luck with the breeding.
