Okay I want HARD, HARSH critiques!!! They are not my horses, but I would like to use either one or the other next year. I would be using Mardi Gras, but he is on the other side of country, & I cannot afford to ship semen & use AI, and risk my mare not catching.
I would be driving my mare out to one of these stallions, and YES I have plans for a foal. I know exactly what I want, and I think breeding is the best option. My mare is a "ranch horse", very versatile in her under-saddle work, she will be shown in the local hunter ring this summer, works well with children, has very few issues (all that I post are training errors, nothing psychological, except claustrophobia), etc.
I want a foal this will not only excel in the hunter ring, but can work the livestock around my farm (such as my mare does). I want a quiet horse that I KNOW. I do not know my horses completely, especially in their past experiences.. I only know small fragments of virtually useless information. I feel that their past is a barrier for their future - & I do not want another horse like that. The foal would be hand raised, with people around with no intentions of harm.
This year I have to work of some community service - I found a way to work at my lesson barn, where they breed hunter ponies. Part of their breeding concerns Welsh/TB, so I can learn from that.
I also would like to learn dressage and how to show in halter shows, with a half WPCSA registered foal (for the halter shows) I can do this.
Anyways, here are the two stallions I have narrowed my searches to;
#1.) Evan's Marcus
- WPCSA reg., AWR reg., & ASPR reg.
- Dessage, Hunter, & Halter.
- In Garfeild, Kentucky [10 hours away from me]
#2.) Rosmel's Scarlet Legacy
Rosmel's Scarlet Legacy, Section B Welsh Pony Stallion
- WPCSA reg. -(B-43965)
- Halter, Hunter. Hunter under-saddle, English Pleasure, & Dressage (prospect)
- In Fletcher, North Carolina [7 hours away]
I need serious opinions all in all, and I would prefer live cover. Any useful information I did not catch PLEASE tell me ASAP!
