Simply A Dun Deal AQHA Dun Stallion-Opinions?

Hey looking at a broodmare who was just bred to Simply A Dun Deal. He's the son of Simply Hot, in which I have met in person and he is just fabulous! I just love him. If I could find the perfect cross on him for the right price I'd snatch her in a heartbeat. He's retired from stud now. Any opinions on Simply A Dun Deal? He's rather new but has a show record.

The filly I posted the last time I might buy her too if I get a loan to bring them both home at the same time, but the broodmare won't be coming home any time soon because she just foaled a colt in February I believe. Won't be able to buy anything till june though unless I get a loan and both are such great offers that its hard to pass up. Lol we all know how that goes ;)

Hm. He's good looking, he's proven, but not a horse I'd choose, personally. He got his dam's neck, with the flat crest, and her head. I'm sure it depends on what you want, though- Although he doesn't suit my PERSONAL requirements, he is still a sound, proven, good-looking horse. I just wanted to make sure it was clear that I don't think he's a bad horse and it's only my personal preferences against him, lol.

I love his sire, by the way- stunning!! I'm sure he was even better in person, too!

I think he is a really nice horse, I love the way he moves. He is unproven as a sire but I believe the best deals are when these horses are young, their stud fees are more reasonable. I would breed to him and not think twice about it. Love, Love his pedigree. Wish he was just a bit taller but that is just personal preference and has nothing to do with him.

His sire is drop dead gorgeous and as gentle of a giant. He's 15.3h I believe. I seen him in 2007??? Been a couple years but I remember that stallion. All lean and muscle. Just perfect.

Simply A Dun Deal certainly has a "power-packed" pedigree. However, I personally would not select him as a potential sire for any foals. It's not because I don't like how he is put together. It is because of his strong pedigree back to Poco Bueno on both his sire and dams top and bottom bloodline.

Just as Impressive bred QH are known to carry a genetic predisposition to HyperKineticPeriodicParylasis(aka HYPP) the close-up bloodline to Poco Bueno has caused a genetic mutation known as HEARDA/HERDA. I recommend you do some research on HERDA before you buy a horse with strong Poco Bueno bloodlines. I honestly think the AQHA industry tried to keep this new development a secret as long as possible, because of the HYPP scare.

No one is trying to hide HERDA, and sorry, but HERD is not like HYPP.

HERDA, unlike HYPP, does not affect a carrier. Only those horses that carry two copies of HERDA are afflicted.

HYPP horses are afflicted with only one copy.

IF he was HERDA afflicted it would have shown by now. He could very well be a carrier though, but if breeding to a none Poco Beuno or a horse that does not carry HERDA should create no problems.
