I just wanted to know what you all thought of this stallion and our mare crossed. We've been looking at him (on the website) for a few years now. When our welsh mare is a little older (1-2 years) we wanted to maybe breed her when she's trained. Right now she is 3 years old and turning four at the end of april.
The grey welsh mountain pony is the mare and the link is to the stallion (first stallion on the website, the chestnut).

your mare sure is pretty!!! it's hard to tell about stallions unless you can go see them. or get a video and watch how they move. he looks really nice as far as i can tell.

and you will have a 50/50 shot of a grey baby.

the best thing to do is decide what your mare's worst faults are and be sure to pick a stallion who doesn't double up on that. they all have faults, just be sure they are different ones

What are you looking to do wth the foal? Drive? Hunter? Dressage? All around-er?

Have you looked at the fabulous stallions that Diane Jackson has at Arnaby Farm? She has imported them from the UK and they are stunning

From my perspective, Jane's stallions would give you a fabulous driving or dressage foal and Diane's would be better suited to a hunter type

Your mare is also quite stocky - Diane's boys would add some refinement to the foal

So- will all depend on what you are looking for in your breeding goals

Good luck!

I really like the 2 actually. I'm usually really anti breeding in most of my posts but in this case, I really like both your mare and the stud. As posted above, what is it that you want to do with your new foal?

We were planning on the foal being a children's show pony. So hunter's, dressage (lower level), and maye even some driving. So maybe Diane's stallions would be better. I've never heard of Arnaby farm and they seem to have some very nice stallions. Thanks for all the advice!

Your mare is a beautiful mover and type, but if you want to produce a competitive show pony, I feel you will need to add some refinement and "typi-ness" to the mix

Here are some pictures of "Bo Jangles"






Matador looks downright stunning:



And I love the look, the type and the movement of this young stallion - Mynach Mystical - as well:






You are actually very fortunate that you are close enough to both breeders to go and see their stallons up close and personal, except for Matador who lives in the UK and is only available on a frozen basis

Good luck in your decision! :)
