@Yogiwick "Most breeds do NOT have crossbred registries that mean anything and to be honest I didn't even KNOW AQHA had anything like that lol!" The Half Quarter registry to my knowledge is not associated with AQHA. Two different registries.

@Mulefeather , he is super nice!

Another one you should look up (if you have Facebook that is), is a stallion named OhYa. He's shown at the National level for Reining, and appears to be starting work on herding. He also doesn't have a huge dish to his face, and a nice working conformation.



I know of him from a group I'm on on Facebook. He seems like he'd also be a good candidate, provided you do want to venture into the Half Arabian world :)

Not every grade mare is bred because of "Ooh I love her sooooo much, she's amazing and will be my heart horse forever..."
I didn't say "craptastic", I said decent quality, which your mare is, decent. To get a foal on the ground will cost you as twice as much as if you did buy a quality bred foal. The most you will get out of your mare is decent, which is great for the average person, but you said you wanted show stock, that is a whole different category. A few decades ago, I would have encouraged you to breed your mare, nowadays, no. No home breeding at all unless your horse has a regional championship, or close to 10 grand in earnings or you have a working ranch, otherwise you are throwing good money away. Every backyard breeder says the exact same thing as you, I want the foal for my own future horse, only a small percentage work out that way for the resulting offspring. I encourage you to enjoy your nice mare and when the time comes when you require a different horse, go buy one and you are still ahead of game financially.

But, I was just recommended this guy actually from a friend that would LOVE to see my mare crossed with him (and he's on my short list for future foals). Not a very dishy head, working conformation, and has a very good work ethic from what I see.

Ooooh my goodness, that's a nice looking horse!

My world that bay stallion, @Tazzie ! And they grey is very nice as well.

It's usually the Russian, Polish and Crabbet with most substance.

@RoanUnderSaddle - Keep us posted on the registration! That would be amazing!
It's doable! I am in contact with her breeder now, if he signs I'll get papers on her.

And that's part of the continuing to prove herself. Never once did I say that I was going to breed her, just that it was a possibility. I wasn't asking if I should or shouldn't breed her. I appreciate your opinion, but who's to say she won't meet any of those qualifications in a few years? She's already a quality ranch horse, and is currently pulling checks consistently at barrel and pole bending races while just loping; this year we're kicking it up a notch and will be running at bigger events. If I breed, it won't be for a long time - likely several years.

Plus, if it's papers that are bothering you.. I just contacted AQHA and I am able to register her.

In what way am I going to be a backyard breeder? If I wish to save up the money, why is it a problem that I breed her?

You got registration, you can AI her to proven producing stock. Research her bloodlines, however only 3 generations back, same with a stud prospect. Go through the earnings, the sales, amount of production, regional population, the whole ball of wax, that's how you find the right stud for your horse, not from a pretty picture, although we all like looking at gorgeous horses.

Check out Reygans Smart Lena! He is a son of Dual Rey out of a Smart Little Lena daughter. He has won 77k with NRCHA and his foals are proving to be very diverse. So far every foal who has shown has earned money. And he is also the most affordable money earning son of Dual Regnon the market at just $850 with tons of discount deals. Shipped semen available and welcome to any mare, regardless of papers or breed. He is also Aa so you have a shot at a black foal! Or blue Roan if she is RnRn aa

That was my reaction when I saw him too. He'd be a good option in case you choose to go the Half Arabian route :)

But good luck getting her registered! Fingers crossed for you!
