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.

Yearling
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 like the third one he's very pretty and well put together and I like the fourth one for his color very unique really stocky build..

Foal
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)

Rockos Gold Rocko's Gold (he actually seems pretty nice... I like sport ponies!)

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
