I am still head over heels in love with trekehners. But I'm thinking that wouldn't be the best cross for a standie.
What about Simba Twist?
If this did happen it wouldn't be for two or three years at least. So who knows what talent will be out there then.
I really wish I could have bred my old girl. But some recent breeding horror stories scared me away from the risk with her being 21, which would mean she is 22 when she foals. She is enjoying life in semi retirement and is taking my 11 year old student in her first over fences show doing cross tails in a couple weeks. A much better life for a 21 year old mare. She's earned her easy life. I'm trying to buy her last foal. She's 5 now and a beautiful mare doing well in local shows.

I have a Standie mare. I am not a fan of Arabians, at all. BUT if I was going to breed her, which I am not, I would breed her to an Arabian. That would likely take care of the jug head, anyway. Also, Trakehners have Arabian bloodlines. Just so you know.
Does your girl have a freeze brand? I am curious about her lineage, and how well bred she is...
