    IF you don't brush your hair does than mean you don't care how you look? They are saying it gives potential "customers" the impression of not caring. If you go to a job interview you dress your best. Same goes for advertising a horse for sale or breeding. So square pics, a thorough grooming and a hoof trim will do wonders for advertising.

    Thank you maam.
    I raise these horses for ranch horses, roping and using type horses. I guess if they were going to "town" to do something they would probably end up at a rodeo or jackpot team roping- not a horse show. Although several of my colts have been shown and done very well. Thank you much, P J

    Well maam, if I had all the tests done that I would like to I would be looking at over $3000 bill from UC Davis. I can't afford all that up front so I am just working on a pay as we go plan as stated above. Thank you, P J

    I will also say that I have no problem with getting them tested if someone wants to breed to any of them. If someone would like to breed, all they need do is pick the stud(s) they want to breed to and send the booking fee. I will immediately send in the test for Herda (including 5 panel testing) and if that stud comes back as positive or carrier of anything on the 5 panel they will immediately be refunded their booking fee. Thank you. P J
    Without the 5 panel tests being on file w/AQHA, you won't be able to register the foals in 2015, just fyi. As much Poco as you have running in your lines, as a potential breeder looking for a stallion, I'd look right past them without knowing the results BEFORE I ever even inquired about the breedings.

    You are selling the studs short with their pics. And maybe test 1 stud at a time? The stud that gets the most use test him first. Then go down the line as you can afford it. But next year you cannot register the foals WITHOUT the test so then the registered status of your studs won't mean anything.

    Here is a good example. This mare is a not only an amazing mare but she is famous. By looking at this pic she looks like nothing special.



    She just looks like a chunky fadas tb mare.





    From thought pics you would never know THIS is WHO she is and What she actualy looks like.




    This horse in Zenyatta. One of the best racing mares in recent history. If someone was to market her they would NOT use the first pics I chose of her.

    A good square side shot along with a rear and front (to show off how correct the legs are) is all that is needed. You can add more "flashy" pics but the side shot, back and front are needed to properly asses the horse and people are critical. If I was going to but my mare life in danger (foaling can kill the mare in rare cases), spend money of the vet and stud fees, lose a year of major work and showing for my mare AND get another mouth to feed, im going to be EXTREMELY particular on the stud I use. Some people plan for a year or two. If they are putting in the time they want the add to reflect that. If they see a few pics of non groomed studs tooling around in the arena, they will keep looking.

    AQHA 5 panel test only costs $85 x 4 horses = $340, so how do you come up with $3000??

    I only saw one pic of each. I didn't go to your site to look at more and that may be a good example of why a great first impression picture is so important not just a decent one.. It"s also why having those test done beforehand can make it or break it as far as the deal goes. I don't think anyone here is trying to slam you at all or gang up on you. I think everyone is giving some decent constructive critisizm that would help you in your venture. They all look decent. With just a tad more work they could look great and be more enticing to prospective buyers.
