First has your mare been HERDA tested? She has 2 lines up close that are known carriers. Next I would take a good look at the stallions legs. He has lines known to have leg and feet problems. ALso look at your mare to make sure that she has good solid legs and feet. If not look for anouther stallion. Over all they are both well bred horses. Since your mare has proven produce I would be looking for a stallion who is more proven if it was me. At the end of the day pick the best stallion you can afford even if that means shipped semen. With all the cost involved with training and showing do not start out cheap.
