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. http://www.rivardstables.com/capitalflight.htm http://www.rivardstables.com/littletacoroyal.htm http://www.dreamchaserranch.ca/Smokes_Remedy.htm
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.
