A Stallion for my mare

I have bred my pure Arabian mare to a Trakehner stallion in hopes of being able to register as both half-arabian and trakehner. I know Arabian breeding but not Trakehners. She is a Bask great grand baby and Bey Shah grand baby. Here is the stallion :http://www.rollingstonesporthorse.com/memphis.html[/url]
What do you think of him?

He's huge. Absolutley HUGE. And he's only just coming 4 and that big already.......he's will be a VERY large horse. Looks big and gangly still, I've never heard of him, is he approved yet? Looks like he may be a nice boy, too big for my liking though.

Yea he's pretty big but he daddy (Harper, a very well known hunter) is known for throwing big babies. He is still gangley but he's only 4 and trakehners arnt fully done growing to there about 6 or 7. I think he got approved this year.

Yes, I am rather familiar with the Trakehner breed seeing as I breed them and own a Trakehner stallion myself. It is unusual to find one that large, they don't usually top 17 hands. He looks like he'll make a lovely hunter, what do you intend for your foal?

Wow, how big is your mare?
You may have a problem with the foal being too big for her to give birth safely and there could be tearing.

Yes that did worry me when I started looking at him for closely, because my mare is 15.1, but there have been many mares pony size he has been bred to and has had no complications with being to big. He tends to throw smaller babies than his size, even when bred to 16.2-3h horses. And sorry he is not yet approved they plan to present him to RHPSI, Oldenburg N.A and the ATA in 2008.

I don't know how you can know what size of horse he is producing! He is only just coming 4, so his oldest offspring would still be babies themselves. It's too early to tell that. Even if they were breeding him at 2 years, his oldest offspring would only be coming 2 years of age!! Not full grown, and Traks take forever to grow, 2 years is too young to tell how they will finish out.

The only thing that bothers me about this, is that they have a contract and pay options right on the website, so basically what I understand is that they are willing to breed that stallion to whichever mare comes along. I don't like that idea, when you own a stallion, you should be picky about what you are breeding to, and should be selecting good representitives of mares to breed him to in his first few years so you have nice foals out there to present him in a good light. Most good stallion owners ask for pics, history on the mares and such before they accept payment for stud fees. If you breed them to whatever comes along, you could end up with alot of garbage out there, and it creates a bad image for your stallion as a stallion is only as good as his get. (I'm not saying your mare is garbage obviously, I'm just commenting on this situation) It's unfortunate as he looks like he'll be a fairly nice stallion, it would be a shame to muddy the waters surrounding him.

Oops! No I'm wrong on my calculations....they'd be yearlings this year. His oldest offspring I mean.
