Breeders of Blues- Who has the best?
 
Who has your favorite working blue roan stallion?

We all agree that My Final Notice, is a very nice boy. But I am looking for the classic QH conformation of a ranch or foundation bred.

I have been keeping my eye on a few ranches that breed blue roans, to make sure they are breeding quality stock and producing quality foals, and not just breeding for color. I would be buying a weanling or yearling already on the ground.

I have my eye on CBS Quarter Horses, Heisler Quarter Horses, Blue Roan Ranch, WYO Hancock Horses.

He's not blue, but this is Red Roan Raider, who is one of me favs.

Then there is Dry Doc's Chick

Another two good looking boys to keep my eye on! I will look them up and add them to my bookmarks. Oh, I see a Pinterest board for blue roans coming soon.

Might be a little off topic, but here's a striking blue roan mustang who is hanging out in the BLM corrals waiting for someone to take an interest in him. I find him tempting.

The mustang looks really good too. I have to remember to check the BML as well.
An appendix wouldn't be bad either. I could always use a second jumper...
But those big ole booties of the QH! It's a good thing I am going to have a while to decide.

This horse is more than likely irrelevant being that he is at stud in Australia but I think he is gorgeous and has actually produced some pretty nice offspring

Here is a few I found that aren't Actually Hancock or Blue valentine Bred:lol:

Blue Roan Stallion
Blue Hurricane : AQHA Blue Roan Stallion
TRUE BLUE ROAN CUTTING SON OF BOON A LITTLE | Equine.com
CR SPRATS BARTENDER - AQHA*2004 Blue Roan Stallion: Key Stallion Station standing AQHA, APHA, Homozygous, World Champion Stallions in Colorado

Still prefer horse like my Final Notice......But there are some other not bad ones out there:wink:

From what I have seen, the Hancocks might be a little too heavy for my taste. Their necks appear to be very short, no doubt from all the muscle.
CR Sprats Bartender is cute and beginning training in dressage apparently.
Mahlstedt Ranch has some nice looking babies.
