Ooh, I like him. He's stunning and has a stellar temperament to boot. His hocks are better than Selena's so I can't see any reason why he wouldn't be a good match. Wowee, I bet that foal would be a barrel eating sonofagun.

I also don't see a single one of his foals that I don't like.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

He is beautiful! And his colts don't look bad at all. I would go for it.

American by birth. Cowgirl by the grace of God. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm excited - He caught my eye instantly and I just needed a little bit of enabling...Hehe. Some day Selena will have her own foal watch thread :)

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I'm no QH person, but they look like a good pairing. My only complaint is that your mare was competing at an age where she was still developing, but unfortunately that is what the industry demands. The stud does look like he'll add good bulk to your mare as already mentioned. The best part is that it sounds like they both have good minds and pleasant personalities.

Starting young is not a strange thing here. She was started at two along with the other foals born the year she was. She's seven now and 100% sound.

I really was looking at that bone. I know she's very petite as is, and it works on her, but it's not desirable.

Good minds is a must for me - I've seen some colts from nice studs (I won't say names as to not dash their rep) who were all crazy. It wasn't a coincidence that out of a bunch of different, calm mares they all were just plain psycho...

I like the pairing. Both horses look and sound like they should produce an awesome baby together. :)

I could look at pictures of Romeo alll day, everyyy day...

I'm totally fantasizing about baby names and colors now...Hehe. It'd have to be something with "Leana" and "Biankus" or "Bianka" in it for sure. I'd hope for a baby with four whites and the white nose like his daddy...and it looks like both him and Selena have the hair gene so a big thick long mane and tail. (Believe it or not Selena's mane used to be long and beautiful before she rubbed it out...lol) Also...I kinda want a colt. But, at the same time, I'm a filly person...lol.

I will fantasize until it happens! Hehe.

She has a beautiful mane in the picture on her Allbreedpedigree page. If all information, such is color, is correct there, your mare's color DNA is Ee A_. Bred to a chestnut you have a 50% of chestnut and a 50% chance of a black based baby. If both sire and dam have an absent agouti gene (your mare might be Aa and the sire could possibly be aa or Aa) then there is a small chance of getting a black foal. But the sire's progeny listed on Allbreedpedigree isn't complete with listing the colors of his foals so it is impossible to know what kind of babies he has had with black based mares. He has a few bay babies listed. If he had a black foal from a black based mare, then you would know some of his agouti status without testing ;)
