I couldn't sleep this morning and was fiddling around on the computer and every now and then I just like to see what people are putting up for stud. I searched Paint studs on Horseclicks and loaded tons and tons and tons of Stallions that aren't broke for anything but are apparently Champion studs, I'm assuming at just breeding the mare, but mostly due to their Great great great grand sire winning a ribbon in his lifetime.
I don't know about everyone else but when I'm searching for a potential winner stud I don't really care to see one romping and bucking over a picture of a peaceful, riding stud. Seriously, if I were maybe in the market for bronc foals. I know that the horse may be broke and they just refused to post a picture in the ad but isn't that a much stronger message to your potential client as to your studs overall quality, being able to be trained. Not just stand it in front of a camera for ever ad picture.
And then some of the descriptions are priceless!! Like this one, "Champion homozygous stallion with many champion foals in many events.." Not another word, no riding pictures, no pictures of his foals achieving anything, nothing.
And this one, "OVERO STALLION SORRELL/WHITE 15.1HH APHA REG. For Stud service only ! Not for sale !" No other description but under disciplines... "Stallion!"
People are scary.
