Thoughts on this stallion? Codys Classic Cruzer?
 
8 Attachment(s)
So I was bored of looking for stallions in this country as I could find anything I liked so I started looking on the ApHC found nothing the right height that me and my mums both liked so I looked on the AQHA site just for a look and found a stallion I really like. If I was to bred my mare the foal would be just for general hacking and what not but as this stallion is a quarter horse I wonderded what people that know quarter horses and there breeding thought about this fella.

Thank you and sorry for the long winded paragraph and I hope this makes sense.

Is the stallion even able to export semen? If not he's not even worth looking at for you.

They ship frozen seaman so I prosume I should be able to import some hopefully, we aren't ready to breed just yet so have plenty of time to find out. Just wanted opinions.

*shrugs* I didn't see anything on frozen.

Personally, if I were in your shoes, I would make sure a stallion I was possibly interested in even exported symptoms before looking harder. That's going to really narrow the options. Exporting semen is not an easy undertaking and not one that a lot of stallion owners are going to want to deal with.

My thinking was to find out first what people that actually know quarter horses thought before I contacted the owner be a use if he wasn't a good example of the breed even for cross breeding there is no point looking further into him if that makes sense.

I can't remember, is your mare registered? If not, that's going to cut down even more on the stallion owners willing to breed to a grade mare.

Can you post pictures of the mare you are planning on breeding? I see the stallion as downhill and long backed. His shoulder is only average. He is also slightly straight through his hocks (and slightly sickled). I don't think he is horrible, but he also isn't perfect... So depending on your mares weaknesses could help decide. He has a pretty head and color, and sounds like he has done pretty well in the show pen.

I don't see frozen listed on their ad. And as someone else said importing semen is not something a lot of people do, so with checking into.

Not really got any good conformation pictures of her so these will have to do they are on slopes and odd angels ect.

rbarlo you mentioned apHC in your originally post so I'm assuming you were looking for an Appaloosa?

My BO is standing Mr. Cool Hand Luke (find him on facebook or Mr-Cool-Hand-Luke ) and they are shipping frozen seamon international.

Not sure what kind of stud you're looking for though. He's 16.2h and super athletic.

^ I'll make the disclaimer that I have no idea what's in her contract, or if she limits breeding to specific breeds/registries. I own Geldings, so don't really look into it (though I did wish for a mare when he arrived last month.)
