So, I'm starting to look at studs to possibly breed with Alahna. I still have to order the copies of her papers, but aside from that, I am looking. I haven't looked at too many yet, barely begun actually, but here are a few (standing at the same farm) that I saw and was interested in. Foal will most likely be an all-around ranch type horse. It will probably be shown in games, trail, ranch classes, team penning, and possibly some roping if I can get myself into it, as well as just trail riding year round.
Alahna is a superb trail horse that rarely spooks, takes care of her own legs in rough terrain, and has lighter bone than I'd like. Alahna doesn't have the personality I was looking for in a horse (doesn't much care for me, but gives me her all), but she's well bred and is extremely athletic. Her knees are slightly over, but not bad and barely noticable, along with a slightly straight hind end. On a good note though, she has a short back, a nice shoulder, speed, and is soo sensitive to cues (which I love, but she won't be a beginner horse lol).
Now, here are the three studs I've looked at so far, which I'm pretty sure are all reiners. I think they're all relatively well-conformed, but I think Hollywoods Dunit Good seems to have the best personality and disposition. I love the chance of a buckskin foal woth Hollywoods Smoking Ghost, and he seems to have nice comformation as well.
Anywho, opinions on these guys and how they'd cross with my mare?
