First off, I believe that 3 and 4 years old are too young to be breeding to begin with. Your horses are not even close to be done growing yet, they still have the mindset of a baby themselves. I agree with some others on here that purchasing a foal might be a better option if you are really looking to own a foal right now.
Secondly, the studs that you picked are okay, but I think they are just that. In my opinion, if you are going to breed, breed right. Don't just breed solely for color, breed for conformation, bloodlines, as well as accomplishments. No offense to any individuals who have lower stud fee's, but I really think this is an area, where money does need to be spent. If you spend more and research a lot of different studs, chances are you are going to get a better foal that will take you farther, especially if you are planning on showing. I am not trying to knock you down, just trying to give you some ideas to think about before making a big decision such as this.
