Can you get hold of a copy of Horse Deals magazine? There is always a stallion feature in there, and often a coloured stallion feature.

The stallion guide is really useful!

Bigger Tesco stores and W H Smiths stock Horse Deals. It's a great magazine.

www.horsedeals.co.uk is the website, not sure if the 'stallion feature' is on there though.

Breeding for color is not a good idea. One should breed for conformation. Is this mare registered? Exceptional conformation? Purpose of the foal? Does the mare jump?

You realize that it's going to be more expensive to breed a mare than it would be to purchase a foal, right? Unless you have great experience breeding, training and caring for a foal then this is probably not a good idea.

What will your friend be doing in five years? The foal won't be ridable for five years if you breed next year. Think about all that time and expense. Will your friend be away at college there? Able to afford an unridable horse for five years?

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

^^ Might have some studs listed in UK.
