    Astro Boy is a really nicely built stallion. Can I offer something please? Don't breed him to any more other breed mares. Unfortunately, he got some bit of a name for producing a lot of crossbreds and not purebreds. He was also peddled around some all breed forums, for a very small fee which didn't do him a lot of credit. He is too nice a stallion for that. I saw him as a baby and liked him then. He should be shown again and bred to quality Gypsy mares. JMHO of course.

    I think he's pretty neat! It's good to see a versatile stud who has been broke to ride, is beng shown in hand and under saddle and who is going onto drive.....unlike some of the studs just flounced around on the end of a rope with a piece of string over their nose and never do anything but that and breed

    Astro will stand to feathered breed mares. This is the wish of his owner and she is in charge of that. However he will no longer be available to non draft mares while in my care. I have to say I find it sad that a stallion gets looked down upon because he has an affordable stud fee. I don't feel this is right. I will be thinking about what a good stud fee will be for him. Feel free to pm me your thoughts.

    I don't think a high stud fee reflects on the stallion. People put to much importance on the $$.
    I think that if you offer the horse at a reasonable fee, and are only breeding to draft mares, you will give some people a chance for a quaulity foal that they otherwise may not have.

    I agree. Having been in Arabians for many years I feel that the stud fees are ridiculously high- too high for a client to make any of their investment back. (Talking Arabians here) I am set on making Astro boy an affordable, quality stallion and have already been in contact with another registry to get him involved in and shown. I am extremely excited to offer such a nicely bred, conformed, and wonderfully minded stallion. If nothing else I am looking forward to just hopping up and riding. Haven't done that in a long time!

    Also touching on that Lizzie-
    I plan on offering great breeding incentives for Gypsy mares to get some purebred foals on the ground by him :) I feel he really has a lot to offer to the breed and would like to see him have the opportunity to prove it.
