I didn't read any of the comments, sorry.

I have a friend that worked and trained for Ackermans for years (I actually just saw some pictures of her on their website xD), and got the priveledge of going out there for 'the tour.' While not all of their studs should have been studs (I didnt particularly like Black Hawk or their cremello stud) theres no doubt they had some quality horses and they all had great temperments and seemed very gentlemanly. Pretty facility too. At that time they had just started DunIt under saddle. He was superb!

Not sure I'd personally breed to one of their stallions, but I've seen a lot worse and ALL of their horses were in great condition, so I really can't bash them.

I wasn't looking for bashes on them as a whole just confo. flaws I guess, as they aren't junk horses. I would guess any foal they drop would be 100% functional, level headed horses. Unless something was super wrong with the mare.

Which one would you choose as favorite?

If you crossed cowboy or ghost with a pure black mare would you get a Smoky black???? Defiantly not a pure black with white mane.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

Maybe it's just me, but it really irks me when someone is advertising their horse at stud but they can't post even 1 decent conformation shot. Sure, all those action shots look impressive, but I want to get an idea of what he really looks like.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I can't get over why they photo-shopped most of those photos......

This is exactly what I was thinking. I thought most of them looked pretty downhill, but there wasn't a single squared-up, straight-on photo to look at. From what I could tell, they all had pretty heads and pretty colors, but I didn't think the rest of them were anything to write home about.

I agree that Jumping G Whiz seems to be their nicest stud.

Yeah and it would be nice to see the horse in natural but clean form... Then a person could see the horse's regular color along with confo.
