We purchased a mare a few months ago with the intention of breeding her to the right stallion. We love her bloodlines, confirmation as well as temperament and can't wait to have our first foal from her!
Unfortunately she does not have any points or accomplishments as no one ever broke her to ride but she does has two, out of four AQHA foals that have earned AQHA achievements as well as other achievements outside of the association.
The sire we’re considering for the foal is a well bred, very handsome, well built stud with a great confirmation and temperament. He is not proven either but he was started in reining when he was younger with the intention of showing him until the owner was told by the trainer that he was not “hot enough” to compete. On the upside, he does have proven foals with achievements outside of the AQHA. His foals are also famous for their great temperaments, good minds and ease to train.
Here are the bloodlines of our mare and possible sire (both are listed on All Breed Pedigree):
Dam: Goetzs Lina Bikini
Goetzs Lina Bikini Quarter Horse
Possible Sire: Nu Peppy Cody
Nu Peppy Cody Quarter Horse
What we’re looking for is a cow/working cowhorse prospect. We also have a great and accomplished reining/working cowhorse trainer that we currently have one of our young horses with for training and hope to send this future foal to him when he/she is of age.
We have been searching for a stud for several months now and have even posted “want ads” to see what is available in our area/Province. Unfortunately, I have not found anything I like.
I happened across this stallion only because I had previous horse dealings with the owner and funny enough, I found out that he owned my mare many years ago and she’s already had one beautiful filly by this stallion. When I called him up, he was willing to allow us to bring her up this spring to breed even though he doesn’t normally stand his stallion to the public. On top of that, he’s not asking a lot for the stud fee since he knows us and the mare.
We’re not looking a foal that will earn us millions of dollars in the ring (although that would be nice, lol!). What we are looking for is a good minded, well tempered prospect/horse that we can use in cow/working cowhorse but should also make a great trail mount as all of our horses enjoy a life of “just being a horse”.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
