I really like the look of Color Guard. He's a young, up and coming stallion who I will be keeping my eye on: COLOR GUARD Reg. ECLIPSED BY COLOR Stallion Katriina Ruotsalo : 2010 International Stallion Guide for Sport Horses

Gah. I swear I've been searching for the past half hour to find the stallion I really want to post... but I cannot remember his name for the life of me. He's a dark bay with lots of chrome, young up and coming stallion and I want to say that he's by Baloubet du Rouet but I could very well be wrong. I believe his name starts with a B... but I can't be sure. I know it will come to me at a very random moment...

I'm open to any lighter, athletic breed who will hopefully throw a bit of height as well. River is only around 15hh

to those who just posted studs - thanks a ton! I'm at work right now and need to get some stuff done for a bit, but will look after.

I really appreciate it. I'm going to create a list of "likes" and then make another thread in a couple days lol. Can't believe this one is at 11 pages!

What about Ironman? www.ironmanonline.com

I personally have not worked with any of his offspring though I have heard good things about him.

Those hocks almost no bend in them! And I thought my gelding was bad.

UB40 and Riverman are each around 16.2 hands. That should add some height. Redwine is 16.1 I have never bred a horse to Redwine so... don't know about all the hype so I did a search. It seemed there were more happy people then unhappy but I tend to lean away from drama when possible. That said, I have LOVED many of his babies.

Oh wow... that's what I get for not looking close before posting I had just heard his name thrown around before about him having nice babies. Yikes! *hangs head in shame at missing a very obvious hind end flaw*

Okay... so I just spent some time checking him out some more. I honestly think Ironman is a really nice quality stallion. If you look at his offspring and even his resume and offspring resumes, he passes on nice conformation, nice temperment and quality. Taking into consideration he is 20 years old in that picture and campaigned hard.

I actually really like him.

It isn't hype. It is fact. No one said the babies aren't nice, and the horse is very nice. Did you visit COTH at all? Did you see the photos of the lab that she was shipping semen out of? There are probably many more people who haven't told their personal stories...and I know this because I am one of them. I got scammed by her years ago, right after Redwine was imported. I was too embarrassed to pursue it, thinking it was ONLY me. Several times over the last few years I have cringed when I saw news about her or the horse, and I even tried several times to contact her unsuccessfully to have my contract fulfilled. As the facts started coming to light that I was just one of MANY people to be scammed lied to, or otherwise treated poorly, I have some peace in knowing that I wasn't the only one. However, it makes me sick to hear about all of the unregisterable foals, unfulfilled contracts and other madness that has transpired over the years. It really is a nightmare and I pity anyone who walks into that unaware, which is why I think it is important to discuss it, just as it is important for people to give their PERSONAL experiences with other stallion owners and she they can go in with their eyes open.
