To the OP I do not think that there is a market for a breeding stock APHA stallion. I do not think that a stallion has to have a show record. It helps promote them but the true test will be how well he sires good horses. That will take years to prove it would be much easier getting good mares with a coloured APHA stallion. Shalom
Hank Wiescamp found the best cross to be full brother to full sister.

I see this horse is a Skipper W way back.

I would not encourage breeding with his horse.

Yes, it takes years....

And how many horses go though killer chutes in those years???

Ripper good point about Hank Wiescamp. However I think that it would take two very outstanding individuals and someone who knows what they are doing to be successful.
I purchased a 1/2 sister to my stallion to breed to him but only after seeing the foals they produced. Each was a successful mating.
About the slaughter issue. With only about 150,000 horses being exported each year and double that number salaughtered here in USA before the ban I do not see that every horse is destined for the meat market. With 7,000,000 million horses in the US the numbers do not match up.
I am much more concerned that the horse would go to a good home that would care for it well than that it would be slaughtered. Shalom

I think we will see the slaughter houses re-open in the US.

I had a close friend who was friends with Hank.

In fact Floyd got one of two breeding stallions off the ranch.

Nic Randy Wells was his name.

Floyd taught me most of what I know about breeding and raising babies. He learned from Hank. I talked to Hank on the phone from time to time but, most of my schooling came from Floyd.

What they could not teach me at the time was everyone does NOT need a stud.

And at times you have to make the hard choices.

If you have a less than desirable foal......end it right there. It will come back to haunt you.

And never sell a colt as a stud, geld them.

It get it now.

Never sell a bad foal....

I get that too.

Ripper that is an education no one can buy.
Those Skipper W horses could do anything. That is the way it should be.
A halter horse should be able to do something besides stand and look pretty.
I agree that they will open those plants again. Shalom

I would love to tell Hank and Floyd I get it now......

At one time Hank said if I would geld my stud, I could pick out any two of his proven brood mares.

What a fool I was!!!!!
