So I am still planning on breeding my Arab mare (not registered as far as I know) in the future; possibly this year or next.
I thought I had the perfect stud picked out (he was my aunt's palomino APHA stud Docs Golden Edition & the sire to my 09 filly, Mouse), however he was sold back in the summer & after lots of searching I finally managed to track down his current owners, only to discover they had had him gelded!
Soo... I am back in the same boat & still considering stallions of all sorts from a beautiful Friesian ($800+mare care) to a Fjord ($500+mare care).
What I am looking for is a nicely built horse with a flashy look (though I do love buckskin/duns & true BLACK)
Above all, however, I want a stud with a good disposition as this is the major feature I would wish to be passed on (so no hot heads or high-energied boys). If he has a good foal record that's even better!
My mare is 15hh, black in color with only one sock. She is of a light build, with a beautiful face & tail set, amazing hooves, however she is pigeon toed in the front. Great disposition as well.
I spotted this ad today & am adding a few to my "propects" list lol. The foal will be for pleasure, trails & gymkhana, though I do want it to have some resale value just incase.
So, what do you guys think of these studs??
I've ruled out the first, though he is a lovey color & pattern he's terrible sickle-hocked & I don't particularly like his confo...
All are within my price range & pretty close
