Which stud to breed my mare to?

I thinking of breeding my Registered QH mare in 2009 and I have it narrowed down to 3 studs. My goal for a baby is nice conformation, color, I would like some height. If the baby turns out nice I would use it for trails, barrels/speed events. I'm not sure how tall my mare is but if I had to guess I would say she is about 14hh. The main reason I want to breed my mare and not buy a weanling is the fact that her babys so far all have her temperment and I love it. Plus its cheaper and I get to work with the baby from the start.

Anyway here are the studs I have narrowed it down to.




I realize that if I breed to the paint I wont be able to register the baby so that is the down side for that stud but I really like the fact of being able to get a colorful baby.

Anyway I know I'm not that great with critiqueing a horse which is why I have posted this.
Thanks in advance.

Don't breed the paint. Not being registered would become too big of a problem if you ever needed to sell it. You could go for a registered paint?
Breeding is way more expensive than buying, and I'm not really a fan of any of these guys...

What is your stud fee price range?

Can you post pics and a pedigree for your mare?

So if you breed AQHA and APHA, you can't register to APHA? I thought you could as long as the coloring was right.

I -think- you can only register them pinto? I could be wrong. Maybe if the horse had the right percentage of colouring?

And yeah, those studs I posted are just ones I kind of like without knowing your mare. =)
Nobody rip me apart haha

Some I like more without knowing your price range:

Nik Dell, AQHA Sorrel Barrel Racing Stallion

Barrel Racing Stallion - Smokes Remedy - APHA - Northern Lights Barrel Futurity

The Paint is a registered APHA but I don't think that I could register the baby as either a paint or a quarter horse.

My price range is under $1000 and preferebly close to $500.

I have looked at some colts for sale and unless I go to an auction I would be paying more than $1000 for a good colt.

I'm not sure if I will breed my mare I just wanted to know which of these 3 studs I should choose if I would breed her. I am also looking into getting a weanling but as I said it is just as if not more expensive than breeding.

Hmmm I thought you could register them with APHA. I have a friend who bred an AQHA mare to an APHA stallion and the colt came out a solid bay. I swear she registered him with APHA as breeding stock.

Kate, I like the first horse or the paint better than the second one. But without seeing your mare and looking at papers, it's hard to say which would be a better match for her.

Ya I'm really not sure about the registering thing as I have never contacted anyone who would know.

I will try and find a decent pic of my mare and find her papers.

I only looked in Manitoba for studs because I don't want to haul my horse off to who know where to breed her.

Spastic Dove, the third horse you posted is actually one that I posted as well.

As long as one of the parents are resgistered APHA then the baby can too. The baby could also be registered Ptha and AQHA. I prefer the paint he is pretty nice, but it also depends what you are breeding for.

Edit: I forgot to add that if you were to register the baby APHA and PtHA and the baby wasnt colored you would register it in the Breeding stock catagory for both registries, but I would breed to the paint stallion because your horse could be triple registrered.

My first pick would be the paint if I could register the foal and my second pick would be Captial Flight.
