Choosing a Stud

I know this is an old thread but I can't help but add my two cents..
All three of these horses are proven performers and sires.
Everybody is entitled to their own opinions but a few of the posts on this are quite uneducated. Especially the one below.
There are not a lot of good quality studs that produce performance type foals that actually really cheap. It usually (not always) means their bloodlines are insignificant, (4th or 5th generation) their conformation is less then desirable, and we have no clue whether or not they have a hint of athletic ability. If they are not trained and shown - you also don't have an idea of how trainable they are which is something I know I look for to be passed on in a young horse. And why would you breed to a Foxtrotter if you want a barrel horse????
As for the Paint - do the research on APHA on what he has produced color wise. He is a tovero which does give him a higher chance of producing color then an overo but certainly not 100%. And he does not look like any sort of gelding I have ever seen. He has an awesome hip and the thing is he is performing very well in barrel racing, so its not just a matter of speculation.
Typically if you want to do well in your chosen discipline buy or breed to horses that are producing or are performing in your sport of choice. Don't go buy a cute western pleasure bred horse and then spend the next two years trying to make it into a barrel horse... And thats not to say that every running bred horse makes a good barrel horses but the odds are a lot higher!

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.
