Hi all, I am breeding my APHA mare for the 2012 season (hopefully). My issue is I just cannot find a good stud. It may just me being picky but, you kind of have to be. I'm looking for a homozygous tabiano stallion, with specific conformation. That shouldn't be hard to find right? Yes its been impossible If I do find a homozygous stallion, he has horrible conformation. And vice versa.
My mare is a solid so I have always heard you need a homozygous tabiano stud to produce 100% Color. But do I?
I recently found a perlino APHA/AQHA Stallion, beautiful conformation, local, the works. However he doesn't have a pattern. So my foal will come out solid right?
I need major help from some Paint horse breeders out there.
