Can you post a pic of your mare? We can't tell if he's a good match for your mare without knowing her faults :)

Well I love the stud's color, though im not a fan of his back end. He seems built uphill whereas your mare seems a little downhill in the pictures.
I like her stocky build & her color as well.
It all really depends on what you're looking for in a foal, but I think you'd have a chance at a really flashy outcome from what you can see of his previous foals.

Just wondering wouldn't an uphill build be a good match for a downhill build?
So that you get a horse that's less downhill.
I always though downhill was not desirable, maybe it's just english discipline..
If I'm wrong just correct me.

What are you breeding for, as in.. discipline?

I'm not keen on the stallion, I agree with the above comment on his hind end and your mares (imo) hind end doesn't do it for me either, I'd look at something that will compliment her a lot more! :)

Foal
Downhill + uphill doesn't = straight. An uphill horse is desired because it will naturally work off it's hind, something desired in most disciplines. While it really has no effect on a regular old trail horse, from a breeder's standpoint it is generally avoided. When crossing the two, one would hope for inheritance of the uphill-ness (However you term it) from the sire.

What she does really depends on what she plans to use the foal for. Though the foal would have full ApHC papers (Assuming sire is a registered Appy? I think I'm wrong...) I'm guessing by his pattern and foals that he is heterozygous for the loud coloration. So you'd have about a 50/50 chance for a patterned App - correct me if I'm wrong... The leopard complex is called a complex for a reason.

Adding to top post - if you're looking at western disciplines (Probably not, judging by your stallion choice), have you considered this stallion?

Not standing to public anymore, but possibly research his offspring and find a proven stud from the same line?

Ah makes sense that you wouldn't automatically get a more desireable build. But breeding to uphill would surely be more desirable because of the chance that the baby will be built uphill.
I'm not saying the stallion is a good match, because I don't think that, I think he looks long/weak to my untrained eye
The horse can't be registered as an ApHC because it's an "Appaloosa Friesian Sport Horse"
I don't think friesian is an allowable cross in ApHC.
