Hi, I'm looking to breed my mare in 2012, and would appreciate a little friendly advice in choosing the right stallion. I'm open to AI, although something more local would be nice (Live in Central Texas). My mare is AQHA Jazz Timin, by Dual Jazz (Dual Pep) and out of Ima Timin Gal (Cutting bred - part of a successful local breeders line). I'll upload photos as soon as I can. I'm looking for color and ability in the foal, and since my mare is a sorrel with two white feet, it will need to come from the sire. I'm into reining, so the foal will most likely be my reining horse.
Conformationally, the stallion needs to have straight legs and good pasterns, to best compliment the mare. Quality of the resulting horse should be worth the investment.
Color is, as I said, high on my checklist. I absolutely swoon over Gunners, and the splash pattern is my hope.
Two that I've looked at: Nedpoint Quarter Horses - Stallions
Colonels Lone Gun looks to be homozygous, but it is hard to tell from the limited pictures of offspring. It seems most homozygous splash show much more white. Any more information about his offspring would be GREATLY appreciated! yor high noon page.html
YOR High Noon is a Canadian Appaloosa stallion, apparently now open to the public. Don't know much about him, any helpful Appy breeders out there?
There is also a (somewhat) closer Appaloosa/Quarter stallion. I'll find the link and post it with photos of my mare.
Information on additional horses would be great, and thank you for taking time to help.
