Just being honest here but judging by your lack of knowledge of reg requirements, the height of your mare (etc) and the cost related to raising verses buying, I think you should do quite a bit more homework before breeding your mare. JMO

The reason I posted this thread is to get opinions on those 3 studs. As I said in my first post I'm thinking of breeding my mare. There are many things that I will have to think about including registration before I would breed my mare.
I am not the kind of person who just decides to randomly breed my mare. As it turns out something came up and I may not be home this summer in which case I will not breed my mare.

Thanks for all of the advice. I really appreciate it.

i really like the paint and the first horse the second one looks alittle thick but it depends what you would want the baby for and what kinda attributes you would like to try and get out of the parents best qualitys really would depend on the mare also

Your mare is a cute horse! I like the looks of the second stallion, Taco.

If your looking for a barrel horse, I think the the paint would be nice according to his record. I think the paint would be nicer looking as well.

You can register the baby APHA and if they have very very minimal white, I'm nearly positive you can register them AQHA.

I would go with the paint.

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.
You'll pay less for a $1000 quality weanling than you would if you pay for a $500 stud fee. Plus, you'll know what you're getting and you can choose the sex. We paid $750 for a three year old APHA gelding who was green broke. He's got good conformation (although his back is a little long).

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

I'm not a big fan of any of them, but I like the second one best. The first one is really downhill and I just don't like his overall appearance. The paint looks like he has too much angle in his hocks and he could have more muscle on him. Especially the hindquarters.

The second one is ok, but not fantastic. None of them jump out at me. I'd say keep looking and get the best stallion you can afford if you're really set on breeding.

The first is to downhill conformation wise. The second looks aggressive, and thick. Kinda like me wants to crush you O_o The third looks like a gelding with no rump D:

Keep looking...theres really a lot of good, quality studs that are pretty cheap. Sure, most to all haven't competed, but still breed nice foals.

For example, my two gelding's sire.

He's a lower priced, non-competing stud, but he has an incredibly docile personality and good conformation. He throws in some beautiful, flashy gaits to. Another plus is that you get a huge variety of colors (black and white, chestnut, flaxen, bay, black, palomino...) and often lots of hair 8D
I got the chance to meet a MFT x Arab filly of his. Black and white, abandoned by her mother. She had an incredible conformation and was just full of spunk.

You don't necessarily a fancy stud to produce a fancy foal. Get a good mare with a great conformation and temperament, then find a stud who can match it or better. If given the choice, I would breed my mare to Dusty's who's never been in the ring, over another thats won ribbons.

Wait! I'll fix it....
