Ok so I am going to breed my mare next year for a 2011 baby. I have it narrowed down to these 2 studs.
Maximus Jac Quarter Horse
Sbr Formula One Quarter Horse
My first pick would be SBR Formula One because I think he is an over all better horse. The down side is that he is in the states so I would have to get it shipped here.
The second stud Maximus Jac is my barn owners horse so he is close. He is a very nice looking horse and his baby's are good looking as well.
What I am looking for in the baby is looks, attitude, and a good pedigree. I am going to show the baby as a yearling and as it gets older use it for reining and barrel racing as the main goal with Pleasure, Trail etc. as secondary.
This is my mare's pedigree. She is a foundation bred quarter horse.
Lucky Star Mickey Quarter Horse
Sonny Star Patty Quarter Horse
I have a 7yr old gelding from her and he has and is proving to be a very level easy to train horse just like his mom.
So what I am hoping for from peoples comments is not just who is prettier. I want to know peoples honest and experienced answers. I will be completely honest with you. I don't know much about pedigrees but I do know that my mare has good bloodlines which is why I would like to breed her to a stud that has good bloodlines too.
Thanks for all the responses ahead of time.
