What do you think about these stallions?

River is 1/4 Arabian and 3/4 Draft mix. I have shown her successfully in rail classes, gymkhana, dressage, and jumping. Additionally, she has been part of our working horse string, spending 4 months of daily riding and packing in the mountains with never an issue of health or soundness. She carries a bloodline that is sentimental to myself and my mother, and I intend to keep the foal. He/She would be used for all-around showing, as well as lots of trail riding for hunting trips and pleasure. Although River is obviously not an expensive purebred mare, I see no reason why I wouldn't be super picky about who I'm going to breed her to :)

I'm looking for a stud who is at LEAST 15hh, and to add some athletic ability/refinement to the resulting foal. He needs to have a great hind end (just not sure 100% what I should be looking for)... as River is cow hocked. Additionally, I'm looking to add "more" to her hind end because she, as you can see, is heavier in the front than rear.. and colour would be awesome too. If anyone has any other suggestions i'd love to hear them!

And so!:

The second stud down, Little Joes Last Day. I do have more photos of him but not sure if I can post them...?

2nd stud, Frenchs Hula Guy

A bit further away, and a higher stud fee but wowza

Annnnnnnd a couple Thoroughbreds. So impressive.... do I really want to cross her with a TB though or should I stick with QH?? The only reason I say that is I'd like to balance out her relatively light hind end (in comparison to her front end). However, I have always wanted to cross up a horse like River ... the type that my family has been breeding for 30 years... to something like a Thoroughbred. Just don't know if it's a ridiculous cross or what.



And here is River.. I will dig for more photos later

hope it works...

Was able to find the AQHA studs,the first one nothing special except getting a "cool" color from him. The other 2 are running QH/Barrel horse stallions,Better pedigrees & conformation,prefer them.The Frenchman's Guy stallion is more affordable.BTW your mare is pretty cute!!

I guess you can only edit a post once on here? That's silly!

And yes, I sort of figured that about the first guy. Though, I didn't see anything wrong with his confo. I'm definitely still learning about that department though. Nothing special in the bloodlines or anything eh? (I don't know bloodlines at all)

On some of those stallions you would have to doing AI shipping,that can really add up ,something to consider...

I personally don't like either of the Tbs - apart from colour they're not that great (IMHO) and don't get me wrong I LOVE thoroughbreds.
The palomino quarter horse is gorgeous.
However that being said don't assume that just because you breed your cow hocked mare to a great stallion you'll breed the fault out - it doesn't usually work that way

Thanks for the reply! And I realize that about faults, but figure it's better to try than ignore it :)

What is it that you don't like about the TBs? I don't know a whole lot about them tbh, but if there is something wrong I'd like to know, to make it easier to find a better option.

Also, I think I'll be going the AI route regardless... I live way up north, and locally there are only 3 studs to choose from... None of whom I really like. To haul my mare south means about 3000km one way

Hi snowcowgirl,
It could be the photographs but they both look a little weak in the hind end to me. The cremello was the better horse having said that, the palomino Tb is very ordinary - again that's just my opinion and it could well be the photography - I always like to see a horse in real life that way you can also assess the movement

River is a nice looking mare.

I like the looks of Hula Guy and 99 Goldmines.

If she is 1/4 arab why not find an arab to breed her to, then you'ld have a 3/4 you could register and show?
