I am not sure if I will breed for next year or wait. I'm hoping to get more important things done first before I decide.

I sent away for coat colour tests from UC Davis. Despite being half paint, Lilly tested N/N for tobiano, overo, splash and sabino. Colour is only secondary for me though, I really liked the stallion's disposition and he has done well in the show ring as a halter horse. I'm hoping for a painted foal, but will be just as happy if I get another solid one.

The first two pictures are of my mare Lilly in summer and winter. Last I posted a link to the stallion's web page as I do not have the owner's permission to post pictures of the stallion.

Painted Coos

It's funny,I've been eyeing Painted Coos myself as a maybe future boyfriend for one of my mares. :) From what I've heard/seen,he makes some pretty nice,versatile offspring.. And,although he does appear sickle hocked in that pic,he does not appear that way in others I've seen,and glad to hear you've seen him in person and he's not. What did you think of him overall?

If all goes according to plan,Chica will be going to the breeders end of May/beginning of June. She is a 6 yr. Old overo Paint mare,this will be her first foal. She will be bred to the AQHA stallion,I'll Smoke Ya.

These horses all look beautiful! Happy foaling - I hope everyone isn't bald by the time their foals are born from pulling their hair out! :)

I have bred my AQHA mare Bald Face Leota to my arabian stallion Midnight Star.
Hopefully we will get a bald faced high white stockings and black half arabian for western classes.
I am also breeding my mare Miatara, Rosie, Dancer and a mare named Knuance All are arabian mares and will be bred to star ,another black 16 hand arab and a grey 15.3 hh arabian stallion. 4 mares and three stallions just have to decide who gets to cover who. Shalom

Yes, it was the versatility of his offspring that really drew me to him... and his height. I'm hoping for a bit of a taller horse. He also moves very nicely, which I also liked.

My overall impression of him was pretty positive. He has a very quiet temperament. My six and eight year old nephews were with me (with the stallion owner's permission of course) and were making tons of noise, petting him, scratching him, etc. and he barely batted an eyelash. He was a little more excitable when I dropped Lilly off a couple of weeks ago, but there was also 80+km/hr winds which he really didn't enjoy - but I don't know many horses that do. I've seen one of his foals born this year to a grullo mare and she is a good looking filly.

Glynnis that is a nice mare and if you ever want to breed for a half arabian she should throw a nice one. Or better yet sell her to me to breed sport horse contenders with. Shalom

Thanks db! She's pretty special to me - I've had her from day 1. I actually hadn't ever considered breeding her back to an Arab to be honest because I didn't think the resulting foal would be eligible to be registered. That being said however, I just looked on the AHA website and it turns out that would have been a viable option as well! For some reason I thought that both parents had to be registered as either a part-arab or arab. Oh well - I'm happy with my current decision and I suppose it could be something to consider in the future!

And sorry, Lilly is not for sale.

And sorry for the double post, I meant to write this earlier, CountryRider, your paint mare is very pretty. She has such a neat coat pattern!

We are expecting 2-3 American Mammoth Jackstock babies, which is a blessing since the breed is "threatened" with only about 2,500 in the world. Sons of our jack are now making mules in Israel and Puerto Rico.
