    Out of the four, I like the last one best. He has a great looking shoulder, not too long of a back, and a strong hip.

    But, I still think you should wait ;).

    I like the last stud the best but I would wait until at least 5 to breed your mare. I would love to see some pix of her.

    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???

    I would probably either trail ride it or it just depends on the foal.idk.i might just sell it and make a profit when its older and broke to ride.

    Foal
    I agree with everyone on your horse being too young. Personally, I think if you are looking for a show horse and still want to breed your mare when she gets older, show her now and start talking to people about what you should look for in a stud other than color to have the foal be an improvement of your mare.

    As far as the other one goes, she's a grade. No show record, therefore in my opinion definitely not breeding worthy. Especially if the plan involves training and selling the foal for a profit. Figure up how much money you will put into it from the stud fee to mare care to feed and training, then figure out if someone will pay that for a grade trail horse. If you want to make a little money by training and selling something, pick something up at the auction. Registered QH go for $5- $40 where I live, you can't find a stud fee close to that price.

    I love the second stallion, the cremello (altho he looks like a pale champagne to me and not a true cremello). I guess breeding a 3 year old isn't all that bad, but I would maybe wait till she was 4 years old.

    Well, you do not need a show record to breed a good horse....there are a lot of excellent broodmares out there that never set foot in a show ring..... for example, a lot of those Gamaar daughters (Arabian broodmares) never were shown and produced outstanding show horses. Disposition and conformation are more inportant than a show record.

    The cremello is a nice color, but is very weak in muscle tone and his conformation just looks "off." I'd want to see more photos him before deciding.

    Shows are the perfect way for a novice horse owner to get an "expert" opinion about their horse. If judged well in halter or model classes and then also judged well in performance classes, then you have a good idea that your horse is "worthy" of breeding (that said, the same horse wouldn't likely win modern stock horse halter classes AND performance classes, but that's another discussion entirely, lol).

    The Gamaar Arabian producers are already "experts" in their own rights, and certainly know a good horse when the see one. The same cannot be said for most American horse owners and breeders. We only see one or two positive characteristics that we "like," beefy muscles, small feet, little head, flashy front leg movement, pencil neck, or whatever it is that we're obsessed with. Very few people actually look at the WHOLE horse: all conformational points, movement, temperament, and pedigree. If more people would, we'd see far fewer "unwanted" horses and culls...

    Walker stallion, if you are going to do it. Then again I am biased, phantom is quadruple reg as well. :)

    I think with some work, perhaps the cremello would fill out....altho it is hard to tell from just a photo, and I wonder how old he is, he may mature yet.

    Well, I was actually referring to way back in the early 1980's before the Gamaar horses became popular....they were pretty much unknowns, I live only about an hour from the people who owned Gamaar. Those unknown and un-shown mares went on to become valuable broodmares.
