Wills this make a good match? (Paint and AQHA)

Hello,

I am breeding my mare, Heavenly Dee Bar, to this stallion, Mr Fancy Fella, and would like to know you're opinions. Good match, pedigree and conformation wise? Thanks!

What is your mares HYPP status?

I won't comment on the OLWS, because I honestly don't do much in the paint department. And am aware of it, but don't know the procedure for it.

Are you looking for a halter horse or a performance horse? What are you planning to do with the baby?

I personally don't do the HYPP thing, I don't care for the look. But he is a less excessive looking stallion and your mare is very nice.

I am looking for a Halter baby. The tentative plan right now is to show the foal as a weanling and then sell it as a yearling. We'll see how it goes! :)

Oh! Alright. Well, like I said I'm no expert on those lines (not my thing), but if you're breeding for halter I DO like them for what they are.. a lot actually. Your mare and the stallion aren't sporting that creepy genetic deformity/incredible hulk look. Which usually leads me to believe they would fair better under saddle and not break off at the knee caps! LOL ;)

Obviously, a lot can change in two years when the prospective foal would be a yearling. Right now, well-bred, well-conformed yearlings are going for approx. $5000. However, I don't know if I will be selling the foal. I may decide to keep it for myself! : )

They're both quite bulky, but I do think your mare is a pretty girl!
Overall from these pics her confo looks really good, though her back appears a tad too long as do her pasterns. Her wither also seems slightly high. Crossed with the right stud, however these minor faults could be cancelled out.
I love her markings!
As for the stud, I really like his color! He has too much muscle mass for my taste(just my op though) which results in his head looking quite tiny, even for a stud. I'm also not a fan of the wideset forehead, but atleast you'll be breeding to a stud who has proven himself. His foals are also quite handsome by the looks of it.
