Stud Prospects

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?

She is beautiful!

Subbing to see what others suggest, because I am useless in that regard ;-;

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I like all three stallions but Hollywood Dunit really caught my eye.
Your mare is tall and rangy those stallions are compact and muscled. I dont know how well they would cross but I wouldn't mind taking the chance.
Good luck. Shalom

Thanks guys.(: The two I mentioned were the ones that really caught my of their others stallions I'm not sure impressed me at all..
Also, my mare is also only 15.1hh, maybe 15.2hh when she needs her feet done, haha.

This will be my first breeding and first foal, so I'm trying to do everything perfectly. I intend for the foal to be a good sale investment once started (may get a buyer at weanling though if the farrier shows interest, haha).

The buckskin one I really like. The cremello is not too shabby either.
PM Dreamcatcher she has a nice stallion . I have seen the boy in person and will breed a couple of mares to him in the future. Shalom

agree, LOVE the buckskin, second choice is the cremello. His color is a big bonus from a sales perspective.

It may be me, but they seemed fairly downhill, pt of shldr to pt of hip, I would choose the one with the least amt of downhill (hard to find in QH these days) with good bone in the legs.
those tiny boned legs, all that fast stop and slides.. makes me nervous.

What Is Your Goal?

I see that 2 of the 3 that you posted are dilute and the 3rd is a double dilute, so are you wanting a dilute for your foal? If so, are you wanting a guaranteed dilute foal or are you willing to take a non-dilute foal? The chances are high with all 3 but definite if you use the perlino stallion. The only question then would be Buckskin (around 80%), Palomino (about 15%) Smokey Black (roughly 5%).

What are you wanting to do with the foal? Trail or ???? What's your mares pedigree or at least her registered name? Have you done a genetic disease panel and/or color panel on her yet?

I'm not actually worried about colour all that much, just a bonus on a nice looking stud. I started my search with reining studs and these were the first that popped up and really stood out compared to what I've previously seen while I was just looking around at studs for a friend to look into.

Foal will be an all around western ranch-type horse (what I'm breeding for anyway) to show locally and maybe do some rodeos along with team penning.

Mare is Storm Cat and Secretariat bred, registed under Buea Oak (I have pedigree on another previous thread about breeding her). I haven't done a genetic disease panel either yet, the vet is suppose to call me back for better prices (never asked because I didn't plan to breed) and to schedule an appt for a breeding exam.
