I know absolutely nothing about MFT conformational standards but your girl is a nice solid looking horse. And of course, her color and eyes are absolutely stunning. She is registered and is an accomplished horse in her own right (even if it's just as a trail horse) and from what I understand, she has an amazing temperment. Pair her with the right stud and you should end up with one dang good looking baby. I personally probably wouldn't choose that stud but that's just cause I have a color prejudice. I don't like gray horses LOL. The whole thing with melanomas just really turns me off to them.

But, whenever you decide to do it, I hope we are both still on here so that I can watch anxiously for her to foal out. LOL.

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/

I just wanted to say "hi" and that our Foxtrotters are related!

My girl has Missouri Traveler E. and Toddy's Perfection too. (I imagine they are common bloodlines(?), but hey, I still thought it was cool that they are related).

I agree that she is definitely breed worthy and yes she is a tiny bit sickle hocked but that's not always a bad thing in reiners. I would also breed her no later than about 12 since she's a maiden. By 10 she should be well on her way to being a proven performance horse and that is an excellent age to breed =)

My only concern is - if she's 6 now wouldn't it be too late to breed her say at 16? I'd rather go with 10 years old.
Okay, yeah, I'd probably do it a little sooner than that, then.

Awesome! Yeah, they are pretty common lines. Missouri's sired 6 WGCs, and they've sired 2 more.

Totally agree with everyone else, THIS is definitely the sort of horse that should be bred. She looks and sounds like a great girl.
I usually try to stray away from the breeding forum because I see so many people breeding or wanting to breed horses that really shouldn't be, but this gives me hope!

I definitely also agree about the concern with age, but it looks like that's been covered. Best of luck!

I absolutely positively adore your mare. I know next to nothing about gaited breeds in general, but she is just stunning in every way. Kudos to you for doing your research.
