Need help for future foal????

Hey, so I have an 8 year old purebred bay quarter horse mare named Milly. She is about 15.5-16 hands high and she is a beast, lol. I was wanting to breed her in the next year or two and I was wondering what horse to breed her with. I want the foal to be light colored (solid or not) and have a big build for barrel racing. And I want the sire to be a quarter horse too. I just don't know what color to breed her with????

Any suggestions will help, thanks ya'll :)

Ill post a pic of my horse too..

If you're wanting to get a buckskin or palomino, breed her to a cremello.

Just be careful that the stallion you decide upon, even if he IS the desirable colour, that he is correct, where your mare is faulty and vice versa. Don't just breed to the first pretty colour which comes along. Breeding for colour has been the downfall of many a breeder and indeed, many a breed.

Also, you will need to know if either horse carries Frame before breeding.

I don't have any breeding advice but I just wanted to say that I learnt to ride the most on a bay quarter horse named Milly who looked exactly like your mare. :)

Color should be the absolute last thing when looking at for breeding a horse.

What has your mare done to determine that she is breeding worthy? That picture does nothing to show her conformation.

You need to find a stallion that will suit your mare. Where she is faulty, he should be above excellent. And you should do your best to produce a top quality foal. It should be the whole package.

Do not just breed to the stallion down the street cause he's "pretty, cheap and closeby" find a good, well known stallion that will produce a foal with a good resale value.

If your looking into breeding for barrels. Look for Frenchmans Guy, Streakin Six, Dash For Cash, Dash Ta Fame, First Down Dash, Zevi, Judge Cash, Carona Cartel, Triple Vodka and other big names.

The stallion I'm breeding to in the future is Ain't Seen Nothing Yet. He's correct, affordable and has an amazing pedigree. His owner is incredibly nice but she does have to have good pictures and pedigree to approve mares. This year she bred 100+ mares and he is shipping with an incredible sperm count.

The best thing you can do is create a wanted foal. Not wanted through your biased eyes, but the horse-world's eyes. You need to breed for a marketable foal, even if you never sell the resulting foal.

Always bugs me.
There is no 15.5 hands. It goes from 15.3 hands to 16.0 hands. There are only 4 inches in a hand. Nice mare though.

Remember, some people put 15.5 as an indication of fifteen and a half.

Either way the horse couldn't be 15 1/2 hands then jump to 16 hands
