Allthough Skip N Zip may appear plain in his pictures take a look at his progeny. He is a proven and well known stallion with excellent bloodlines.
None of the other stallions will ever be able to accomplish what some of Skip N Zip's progeny have.

I am leaning towards the 3rd horse. It does make me wonder what conformation faults they are hiding by not having an unsaddled confo shots of him on the site.

My personal pick out of these stallions listed would be Skip N Zip. I completely agree with LauraB! There is no way the remaining three stallions would even get close the success of Skip N Zip. Not only does Skip N Zip have his own show record, but many of his offspring have been very successful as well. I currently show against some of them. Skip N Zip is a long way from being in show ring condition considering that he is 22 years old! I would expect his back to drop some and for his overall condition to get a little flabby (thus contributing to a thick throatlatch & neck).

My second pick would be the third horse, the one that everyone here seems to like the most. He's a young horse so he doesn't have the long track record of Skip N Zip. I like the top side of his pedigree, but he hasn't proven himself to me yet. Sure he has a show record & is currently being shown, but lemme tell you that the open shows are a heck of a lot different than the Paint shows. A win at the breed shows means an immeasurable amount more than a win at the open shows. The accolades listed on his website make it seem impressive, but if you really know what they are saying, you know that it isn't that great.

The other two horses are just crap. The Beau horse was hit with the ugly stick several times, and his babies have the same look. The Shadow horse is very plain if you get past his coloring. He's an average horse with a flashy color/markings, and that's the only thing that kept him a stud. Unfortunately.

Hmmmm....if I had to pick from these stallions, I would choose the last one....the black and white stallion. He has more the type of conformation I like, Some R Unique Shadows seems more balanced. I don't care for the first two at all....both have short thick necks, long in the back, and so-so legs....

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!)

A Fusion DreamHorse.com Horse ID: 1296890 - A Fusion (can't really tell much without more photos, but...)
Rockos Gold is the CUTEST little pony!!

So I got permission to post our stallions. They are all under $500, but the really super nice one isn't on here yet. Anyways, I recognize that Pepper and Lucky don't appear to have great confo in their pics, but they really aren't that bad. Dennis and London are my favorites. Dennis probably has the best confo of the bunch and definitely the best show record, but they don't post that for some reason. Cochise is awesome, but you can't really tell his confo from the pic... Urban is just a yearling, which is why he is so small

Anyways, the point is that you can get a good horse with good bloodlines for less that $500... Don't judge our horses too much from the site because they do not include their bloodlines or show records.

EDIT: My idiotic-self forgot to post the link... Here it is: http://www.southcross.com/horses/list.php5?cat=at_stud Plus if anyone is looking to buy a horse, all of our sale horses have links on here too!
