    She's awfully young to breed. Also, why not purchase a foal? The market is down and you're likely to have a lot more money in a foal you breed than in the purchase of a foal, especially when you breed such a young mare.

    Instead of color you should maybe be looking at performance records since you want something you can show. So make sure to look at the stallions offspring and see how they are doing in the show arena as well as the stallion himself. How about your mare? Has she done any showing yet? I know she is only 2 but there are halter type classes.

    I also agree that next year she will only be 3 and that is young to breed... she is still a baby herself and still growing (filling out and what not). Right now is a time to buy and you should be able to find something that is ready to be shown and has the look, color, and breeding you may want.

    Actually I have a colt in mind to buy if she's to young to breed.

    I agree with others, she is still very young.

    Also, color should be the "icing" on the cake after everything else has been established - conformation, performance, pedigree, temperment, and after all of that, then color. What little you have provided on each stallion and the poor quality pictures, no one can say which one would be the best. We would need conformation shots - of stallions AND your mare, performance records, a sampling of their offspring to see how they produce, etc.

    Honestly you could probably pick up what you want from auction way less than even just the stud fee would cost you - forget mare care, vet care, etc. Plus you won't then be risking your young mares life - because breeding does bring risks.

    I completely agree with what everyone else has said. There really needs to be a reason to breed your mare besides the fact that you love her to death and you think having a baby out of her would be neat. Does she have some killer bloodlines that you're looking to pass along? Has she proven herself in some kind of a show venue? And definitely, if you must breed her, wait til she's older. Good luck!

    It is really hard to tell if they would be gaited or not, you would still have 1/4 quater in the foal. Just do your research a head of time because foals are spendy. What are your plans for a foal if you were to have one???

    You need to wait until at least 4 yrs old to breed your mare. She won't be totally done growing/maturing until 5-6 yrs old, so the longer you wait the better. Enjoy your mare, break her to ride (preferably after 2.5 yrs old), and see what kind of horse she turns out to be. Then you will have a better idea of if you should breed her at all, and to what kind/type of stallion.
