Okay so this is an idea that I have been tossing around. I am looking to move up competively in the AQHA shows. I currently show HUS with my mare Mia Sweet Version. We do very well in the open shows but unfortunately she is too short for the bigger shows. My question to all of you out there is should I breed her for a prospect or buy? Now I know that a lot of people support buying a foal instead of breeding, however, this foal will be in the hands of a responsible owner, handled daily, and most of all loved with every piece of my heart. I am not a backyard breeder who just wants a baby to have one. So without further ado, let me introduce possible mama.
This is my current HUS mare Mia Sweet Version. She is enrolled in the AQHA Incentive Fund program and stands 15.2 hands. She is the best mare I have ever owned. She is very gentle and kind. I have no issue with putting children on her back and letting her pack them around as she does so willingly. She was originally bred to be a western pleasure horse but evidently she didn't get the memo because she moves out and does not like to slow down to do western pleasure. Below are pictures as well as her pedigree and a short video.

Here are my two favorite studs, with Its All About Blue being my number one pick. He throws some absolutely gorgeous babies.
