I can't offer much by way of suggestions past what W_S has already talked about. I'm mainly hoping for some pictures to drool over .

I always love looking at pictures of good ASHs, makes me wish I had the money to import one.

Yeah im finding that! We have a fantastic little QH mare we want to ET from, but can't decide on a stallion. We want an ASH stallion so it can be reg ASH.

You said the 2 yr old has already been showing? If this includes anything other than halter classes I would pass! I wouldnt buy a horse that is being ridden often enough to do well in undersaddle classes at the age of 2 That being said if the mare had the same start in life you are probably looking at alot of health issues (arthritis/back/hocks etc..) in both of them once they older regardless so it would just be a matter of dealing with that in 10 yrs or in 2 yrs I suppose! Is it common for Ausie horses to have showing careers undersaddle at the age of 2? If so what type of classes? Jumping or on the flat? I hope to goodness on the flat!

^ It is much the same as QH futurities, not an 'Australian' thing at all. And in regards to health issues, it depends on how they are started. This particular stud has a few veteran show horses that are still competeing in their teens. In the ASH world we don't jump, except for the odd one in a time trial or station hack class. 2yo horses do Hack, Working (Simplified) and Station Hack as well as led.

Campdraft, I have a list of stallions I like but they are all so nice! I definitely lean towards the Abdul line, expecially the sons/grandsons of Palmers Fort Abdul - So Bryjen Fort Talon, Cadabra, Waylon J Justice... I love the good neck they throw.

I would go with the 2 year old simply because you need a horses that will be your best friend last practicly forever. Both horses sound good but in the end its not going to be a post from a random stranger that gets you the right horse, its going to be which horse suites you the best and your personality and also which one will NOT bite kick or bolt off etc on you.

the 2yo has been brought along slowly and is a fantastic little horse to ride. As he is a colt, he is quite mature already, and is under no pressure at all. W_S summed up what the two year olds do in Aust.

I agree! Out of those stallions, I would lean towards cadabra, as he is cowy, and still fine enough for the mare. If I was looking at something just purely for showing, definitely the other two. Also, one of our friends has a gorgeous reg ASH by Acres, who I would put her too, but it would be unable to be reg ASH as he is C2. Still thinking of him though!
And GP Stryder, Chevin Levi, Hazelwood Conman, Impressive Destiny or Rosebrook Balou. Quite a lot to choose from! Haha, help would be great! Can do three embryos...

I like Rosebrook Balou, also Nandeye Resistance, Talisman Fiddler, Kirkbys Major if he's still around... There was a really nice qh stallion at Jugiong Draft last year, can't remember his name though, maybe classic doc?

I know what you mean about the others, definitely more show horses than cow horses, except Bryjen. I love Cadabra but his progeny haven't impressed me as much as the progeny of the others. I met a young Cadabra colt when I picked up my mare - the guy had him and a Bryjen colt. He said the Cadabra colt has a bit of dirt in him, whereas the Bryjen colt was much more amenable. Though of course it may just be that he appeals to a different type of mare than the 'showier' boys, which can make all the difference.
