One of the problems is their are to many standing stallions. (IMO)

Seems like most people feel they need a stud horse.

And AI has made it worse.

My stallion was bred in Tn. Got him when I lived down there. I have a very nice 16hh mare by him. Just sitting here in my pasture. Just do not have the time to work her like she needs. She would make a nice all around horse like her brother but since most of what I do is NRHA Open Level reining she just sits out there. I will not just give her away either so at some point I will finish her out or just breed her and prove her out through her foals.

I like a big ne. Not excessively huge, but probably around 16hh would make me happy. Stocky but not a tank or bulldog. With a big ol' hip. One who has a work ethic and desire to please just like they used to. LOTS of speed, lots of turn, LOTS of cow. Turnaround, "whoa", and eye appeal.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

While I do agree with this to a point. The problem is that the ones who stay stallions vs the ones who get gelded will add to more limited choices. There are very few stallions bred like Te. His sire is a ROM reining and working cow horse sire and his dam has produced WSQ in Halter and HUS. Every horse on his pedigree are proven performers/producers at a very high level. Getting good mares with even better owners to use him is hard b/c they all want the flavor of the month.

I never paid to breed my mares.

My mares were well bred, well cared for and the babies were fit and ready to go win.

If you can make a deal like this with someone and get a few babies out there and in time riding.....they will come.

He is 22. I am not going to bother with it. He has get out there winning but it makes little differance. His lines are older being a g-son of Eternal Sun Bars Mr Diamond Dude and Skipalindas Te, Te N Te bottom side. Just not what is in right now.

I have never paid a full stud fee either. Not a big deal. Just b/c you give someone a free breeding does not mean they will show the resulting foals.

Eternal Sun stood about one hour from me.

Great horse.

I learned one one my most valuable lessons from Harold.

BTW, Harold want me to put my stud horse in a safe field with some of his mares to breed and teach him a lesson.

Mares are great educators. I know Te learned a lot from Popi.

Te is double bred Eternal Sun.
