Question Stallion Choice?

I'm breeding my mare this year and have been looking for the right stallion. However the search has become quite frustrating . She's well bred (Dual Pep), and I've already discussed it with two trainers and they believe it's very worthwhile. So now I'm searching for the best my money can get - budget is around $1500. (I'll try to get a photo up soon) So far I've looked at:

The Great White Hope- The Great White Hope - Maranatha Farms Was told it is a good cross, but I've also heard some negative about Nu Chex horses.

Trashadeous- Trashadeous

Colonelsmokingpep- Colonelsmokingpep I'm partial to gunners, but haven't found many in my price range

Wild About Who- Wild About Who | Facebook Heard about him from a friend. He has a daughter in reining, but I don't think he's quite what I need

I'm kind of interested in a son of Rooster or Hollywood Dunit, but will take any suggestions. I'm breeding for a reiner. Pretty is a must, color would be nice (Definitely makes an easier resell if need be), but I really just want the best possible cross.

I'll also be discussing these with my trainer, so know that the internet is not the end all be all of my breeding decisions.

Thanks!

Hmm. That's a hard one. I don't breed reiners, but I like Hollywood Dunit stallions. I've heard some goog things about him.

Can you post pictures of your mare? Does the stallion have to be QH or is an Appy or Paint ok?

I adore this handsome dude! Gold Champagne Appaloosa stallion. Throws quite a few champagne foals and I think he's got nice confo. Straws Mighty Magnum

Also Salter Pepper Paints. A very very handsome palomino overo stallion.

Welcome to McGuffin Family Farms! Another palomino overo stallion.

SBR Formula One website A very awesome all around Dunskin stallion. I believe his owners are also on the forum!

McQuay Stables: Dun Gotta Gun A little over budget but a Hollywood Dun It son! Pretty handsome to boot!

McQuay Stables: Mister Nicadual Nice dark chestnut stallion.

DreamHorse.com Horse ID: 1760779 - Twice As Shiney Palomino Stallion

looks like your on the right track. If you breeding to sell it with those bloodlines you are looking great for breeding to the mcquay horses or any big name trainers horses/ big name reining or cutting stallions.

OP do you have a link to your mare's pedigree? That would help with some suggestions.

I also like sons of Shining Spark.

I'd check out Chic Please if you are looking for a nice reining stallion. He is a million dollar sire and is only $1000 bucks for his breeding fee, now that someone new owns him! If you only have 1500 TOTAL to spend on getting your mare bred, the stallions fee needs to be around 500. When you add up all the mare care, shots/palpations/shipping etc fees, it gets pretty pricey. Good luck!

FehrGroundRanch has a lovely buckskin reining stallion for stud. He's always been a +1.5-2 stopper. Don't get much better.

He's only available to a limited number of mares, but he's worth checking out. :)

Now. This is just my opinion, and my knowledge of bloodlines is only so-so, but anyway...
I love all the stallions you picked, but I have to say I like colonelsmokingpep the most. I really like his bloodlines, and trashadeous and him are my favorites looks-wise. I think all the stallions you listed are quality horses, though.
As for wyndellarose's choices, I have to say I finally picked my favorites from them, after a while of convincing myself 'all of them' is not helpful. Lol, so....
My favorties are both the ones from McQuay (tied- they're perfect to me, lol), SBR Formula One, Reeds Poco Vandyke, and Twice As Shiny and Straws Mighty Magnum (tied). I had a really hard time with this, lol.

By the way, can we see a picture of your mare? I'm just curious, it would help to pick my favorite stallions if I know what the mare looks like. :)
