which stallion???

i have a black tn walker quarter horse mix mare that i want to breed.she is 4 yrs old and this is probably the only time i can breed her because next year im going to start training her for rodeos.i have a few options for her.
and i want her to have a baby instead of buying one because i love her personality and my family like babies that are born here better than babies that are not because they have been with them since birth.what im wanting out of her is a good horse for barrel racing,pole bending,and a horse that will have a very high spirit.

1.a reg. quarter horse stud fee is for free as the owner is my aunt.chestnut and built like a tank,was outta a champion halter horse and mare.bred for halter.16 hh and stocky!very good personlity but not much spunk in him.taken to training very well.was able to ride him the first day of training.

2.tn walker stallion.17 hh cremello very high strung but unbroken.only used for breeding.not reg. but is purebred.good conformation

3.paint stallion 15.2 hh and is very colorful.brown and white.has a good ranch horse type build.but i do not like the way the spots are on him.it makes him look uneven.

OK I'll ask it....exactly WHAT are you looking for in a foal? Input from other people indicates that crossing gaited horses on non-gaited horses leads to a very uncomfortable ride at least 50% of the time (horse is confused as to what movement to use).

So let's look at #1--here you have a halter type horse, typically not reknowned for their potential riding skill under saddle (movement wise) so you might end up with a stocky horse that tries to walk...or a walker looking horse with no walk

#2--high strung, done nothing, no papers-you know you can pick up a foal from auction for $50 with a double unknown background. You can't feed a mare for a year at that.

#3--another stock horse-again the confusion potential with the added potential of spots...or not

Honestly-I'm not voting for any of them.

You'd likely get a much better horse that you're able to register if you purchase a weanling. There's not much market these days for an unregistered mixed breed of this sort. It's unlikely that this foal would become a barrel horse.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

Personally, I wouldn't breed an already crossed horse, it just gets all confusing with the gaits x-O

But, if you do, go for a well built, well bred stud who isn't bouncing off the walls but isn't fast asleep all the time either. My gelding's sire is very polite and wonderful to visit. Very alert, very intelligent, but he also has a lot of power behind his teddy-bear personality.

Wait! I'll fix it....

I don't think any of the stallions are suitable. Its a gamble for any of them that you choose and the odds are not in your favor of getting what you want. If you absolutely MUST breed - the choose a stallion that already excels in the events that you want your foal do do and has a proven record.

Otherwise - go buy what you want. It will be a lot easier.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Why would you breed an already crossbred horse? Especially a gaited x non-gaited cross. It just doesn't sound like a good idea imo.

She already stated why she wants to breed the mare go back and read the OP.

Personally I'd breed to the QH as long as the stud fee is free why not? The foal isn't going to worth a lot of money but it doesn't sound like your breeding to sell it so thats not going to matter.
