Who would you choose for a $500 stud fee?

With breeding season coming up I've been bombarded with stallion flyers & SSA flyers so I thought it would be fun to see what you can get for a little bit of money. I don't have a player in the game so to speak because I don't own a mare. But I still found it interesting the quality of stallions listed for the low stud fee of $500. So who would you choose?? Make sure to visit the websites for more info on each one and lots of photos of the stallion and his offspring.

A) Skip N Zip - paintarosa.com

B) Beaus Commander - http://www.angelfire.com/pa5/pineridge/stallions.htm

C) Hustlers Deck of Stars - MJ Painted Ranch

D) Some R Unique Shadows - Secluded Acres Horse Ranch - Home Page

This is not intended to be a critique thread. Some of these stallions have glaring conformation faults, and yet they are still kept as stallions and promoted. That's what I find so interesting is the vast difference in quality especially at the lower end of the stud fee price range.

The first one had a website that didn't work...which would turn me off big time. The second one had a loooong back...and one of those "build it yourself" websites which would turn me off. The fourth one I thought was hideous. I liked the third one...because he was actually moving out at the trot in his picture...had a pretty face...he is currently showing (which I always find impressive)...and I liked his name...would be a good name to play with for the foal name.

Skip N Zip. The other three should be gelded. Of the other three I like the Hustler horse the best but I still think he would make a nicer youth or am. horse than a stud.

I agree, the 3rd one is the best and the other 3 look like they would make better geldings than stallions. Not to diss them or anything, they (especcially the last one) don't look like stud material. We have 6 studs standing at my barn for around $500: 1 homozygous paint, 2 overos, 1 appy, and 2 GORGEOUS quarter horses. One of the overos was undefeated in the southeast in halter as a yearling and 2 year old, but I think they are raising his stud fee this year. I would post them on here, but I don't know if the owners would appreciate it or not.

The first one has a terrible short neck and huge throatlatch. His back is way too long and he appears to be severely downhill. Not my idea of a good stud. Not to be rude or anything, but according to paint horse standards, he is not a quality stallion.

None. But, I'm not a stock horse person... If I HAD to chose from them, it would be the third.

But if I were looking for a horse wtih $500 or less stud fee, these would be more my choice... (DISCLAIMER: I just did a very quick search and didn't really look into these guys, it was just more my type than the ones in the OP's post)

I totley agree with you

if it was i could pick it would ber the third and the forth and i would cut the other two the only reason i would pick them two because of the blood bar and leo i'm a big fan of both bloodlines
