    Foal
    I'm so glad to see that this board isn't one where everyone just tells people what they want to hear to be nice. That said, there is no way anyone could judge those stallions based on the photos you posted. They're all horrible pictures. We can't see anything that would tell us anything about the studs' conformation. Plus you didn't post photos of the mare, which also would have helped. That said the mare is too young and in this market you could get a horse nicer than what you could breed yourself for less money than it would cost you to care for a pregnant mare and raise a foal.

    Just a question. You're not riding her in the first picture, are you? A two year old is awfully young to even ride.

    Foal
    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.

    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.


    My horse has a show record she has been to every show last season that's in my area.she trail rides,parades,i showed her in halter and she got 3 blue ribbons,wetsern pleasure,but she hasnt been to the shows in a little while because she got lame a couple of weeks ago and were trying to get her better for his show season.

    Your mare is a baby. She's too young to ride and she's too young to breed. Please give her a few years to grow up. That way you'll be able to keep her healthy for many, many years to come.

    Agreed with Joshie and everyone else.
    And judging from those photos, I don't really like any of those studs =/ Granted, they arent exactly flattering photos
