    Barrel Horse World I think this stud is rather nice. He is very versitile. Goes from western pleasure to barrel racing, reining, to english pleasure and jumping. Click on there webiste (right under the pics) for more pictures of him.

    Off topic, but if for some reason I get a wild hair and decide that I want to breed one of my girls, I am coming to you guys to help me pick a stud. Ya'll can sure find some pretty ones.

    Ok, back on topic. Sorry

    Well since I don't plan on competing & simply want something with decent looks & a good mind I don't particularly care whether the stud has done anything (more interseted in how his foals are to work with). Bloodlines are of no consequence to me either.
    The reason I would rather breed than buy is simply because I have a mare I really like looks & temperment wise & would rather spend between $300 to $500 plus mare care on a nice stud instead of forking out $1000+ for a foal who's parental background I know nothing of or who's well bred for competing but will not be taken in that direction with me.
    I also really enjoy the whole foaling process, halter breaking & such right from day one & have had plenty of experience over the past few years.

    Again something solid that has a good mind for trails, mountains as well as gymkhana is what I ideally would like to breed for.
    I would also prefer a stallion within 3-4 hours of my place (central AB).

    Somebody mentioned me breeding Chico to another Arab.. well i've thought about it & infact saw a stud on kijiji who looks identical (without the pigeon toes) however most Arab stud owners only want to breed to purebred mares & since I don't know enough about her background to know if she is registered, finding a good Arab stud who's not highstrung or bonkers can be difficult in my area.

    Those first studs are hideous. To be honest I wouldn't want to even own one of them. Just about everyone is majorly sickled hocked and the one that isn't is really cow-hocked and post legged.

    You can find a much nicer stud and not pay very much more.

    ETA - You say for what you're doing it doesn't matter if the stud is proven, but it really does. A good all-rounder is what you're looking for and that means that the stud should be well-broken, sound, and sane. You can't tell that in 10 rides.

    I know what you're saying but I would much rather know how that studs offspring are to determine whether he's actually going to pass on his temperment & abilities. Therefor I wouldn't necessarily breed to a novice stud but rather one that has atleast one crop on the ground.

    The stallion I mentioned in the first post, Docs Golden Edition didn't have any sort of competition under his belt (though he was bred specifically to be shown he was only ever broke to ride & I honestly don't know how well as my aunt never put a saddle on him, they just used him to breed).
    His foals, however were always very sharp looking (so long as the mother wasn't a total mutt ) and about every 4 out of 5 were quite trainable & easy to work with.
    As I said, i'm not taking this business of choosing a stallion lightly.
    I'm also not specific as to the breed (though i'm not looking for Warmblood types as i'm vertically challenged & not fond of super tall horses).

    I'm not saying the stud has to be a show horse. Not at all. I'm just saying it shouldn't be something that's barely broken. Heck if you find a stud that's never been shown and it a great trail horse. I would say go for it as long as it's conformation is good.

    You can't totally disregard what the stud looks/acts like either. Definitely it's good to look at the offspring and see what they look and act like. But really you can find a stud that is proven in a discipline (even "just" trails) and is throwing good babies.

    The best advise I got when I decided to breed my AQHA registered mare was to breed to better stallion than what my mare has as far as conformation for the most part. My mare's first born was by a TB stallion, her second and third born were by a AQHA Cutting bred Stallion.

    Your mare's foal would be a keeper in your eyes, because you love, understandably, your mare and that would pass on the her foal. However, in the event something unexpected happened to you or your ablility to keep all your horses which one or ones could/would you keep? I am not trying to change your mind about breeding your mare. Just some "food" for thought.

    Agreed
    Here's some pics of Chico (i know she looks really fat in them!). She needs some muscle on her neck & her fronts are slightly pigeon toed. Not horribly, however & it doesn't affect her at all, though she does walk like a deer.

    I agree NicoleS11 that first guy (the sorrel overo) is handsome. Definitely the best looking of the 3.
    Just throwing this out there as well... if possible (though I know genetics are tricky) I would like to try for either a black (not brown), dun (any kind), buckskin or palomino.
