Before you get too hyped up and set on one particular stallion you need to check with the owners if they are even willing to breed to a grade mare as a lot of stallion owners will not.

I have a clyde cross that is very similar build to yours and I breed her to a Holstiener and got a very nice cross......I will post pics to you can see.

The stallion was owned by Klondike Victory Farms out of Alberta....the owner was great to work with.....the stallion is no longer there but she does have some others that might be suitable.

I like the idea of crossing her with a thoroughbred. However I don't like many of the colored thoroughbreds, they are often snatched up as stallions based on color alone, very few, if any ever race and many are not proven in any other disapline either.

I don't like either thoroughbred posted, they both look very average. Good gelding, but not spectacular stallions.

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?

I did think about this lots! But had people tell me that I'd have a hard time finding an Arab with a strong enough rear end to complement hers.

Merlot, obviously I have lots to learn because I thought the Palomino had a better hind end than the Cremello!

Good to know, thank you very much!

Right now it's looking like the Frenchman's Guy stud is the best option.... I'm going to continue looking through, still have quite a bit of time.

To the person above with the clyde stud: I am actually purposely trying to stay away from the draft breeds for this foal. River is built heavy enough and I'm hoping to end up with a bit lighter built foal.

Thanks for the opinions everyone, this really helped!

sorry, I misread your post the first time! A holsteiner is a neat idea, I'll look into that a bit, thanks.

what about THIS guy?
Bum looks better!

I guess the thing to remember is that I don't need a stud with race earnings or even a super extensive show record. That said, I'm still learning about conformation... but to me, this guy looks better than the previous two TBs?

I know color is not everything, but I feel like there MUST be a good, colored TB stud somewhere out there haha :)

In all honesty I wouldn't touch Guaranteed Gold with a 10 foot pole.

really? I was definitely wondering about the amount of promoting.... seems like they'll breed him to anything, with zero discretion

so, basically it's impossible to find a quality, colored TB stud haha. Back to Quarter Horses it is I guess :p

Are there specific reasons why you don't like Guaranteed Gold? (out of curiosity)

Agreed. I would be very leery about dealing with someone who splashes their business all over the internet like that. The owner is very negative about other stallions but does not respond well to negative opinions of him by others. I just like to keep the crazy away as much as possible.
