Where are you? Are you looking to live cover or AI? That will make a big difference on your possible stallion selection.

What you should be looking for, is a pony that is true to the Welsh B breed standard, and isn't going to risk throwing an over-height foal. If your mare is close to height, you would be better off breeding to a smaller stallion. If she's well under height, it doesn't matter whether you use a tiny stallion or one close to the maximum height of 13.2hh.

I really like this little guy,

There's a STUNNING stallion based here in Western Australia called Penley Naturalist, he is youngish but spectacular.

Whichever stallion you choose should be well put together and a good representative of his breed, so you should read up on the breed standard so that you know what to look for.

Im im Ireland but I don't find any stallion completely 'WOW' over here. Thats really funny cos he was the stallion I was looking at if I was going to use AI. I'm a bit worried about AI though. I would absolutely love to use him though. He is fantastic.

Has your mare foaled before? If she has, then AI isn't a problem. If she hasn't, personally I would prefer live cover, but it's still not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes they can get infections if the equipment isn't properly sterilised but a good equine repro vet will do that.

I've been thinking about putting my filly in foal (when she's older of course) and my plan is to use a real WOW local stallion, there are a few, for her first. And then go AI for her second so that I can choose the best stallion in the world to suit her conformation and the discipline I ride.

She hasn't had a foal before so this time I will use a live cover but the second time I want to find a fantastic stallion so I can keep the foal for showing :) I'm just a bit nervous about doing it because it isn't widely used around here. I might set a trend though :P

If it isn't widely used I would be nervous too, you really need to have a GOOD equine repro vet to eliminate the risk of your mare getting an infection from the equipment, and to optimise your chances of a successful pregnancy.

If I AI my filly I will have to take her 3 hours away to the only reputable repro specialist in the state, my local vet is great but not a reproductive specialist so I can't fairly expect him to be able to inseminate my mare using the best methods out there. Travel is something that you do need to expect when you're putting a mare in foal, even for live cover... most of the stallions I'm considering for her are in roughly the same area as the repro vet so it won't be much more inconvenient to AI her.

BEP - would that be Belvoir? Because I don't consider them reputable at all - one of the vets from there did a palp on a mare who was colicking, and missed an 8 month foal that she surprised us with three months later.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
