    I know its a bit early yet, but who has their plans lined up for next year?

    May will be bred to Harley - for another April, Barbie, Parker and Maggie
    Chloe has been left open for a few years, she will be crossed on Harley. hoping for a buckskin

    we were looking at the Tom Powers Stallion Trust and trying to decide which one to buy (oh, If I only had unlimted funds! ). I decided on Willy Be Invited as I have always liked him, and he will be 20 this year... and decided.. ACK... to cross him on April. I will have 2 2yr olds in 2019, so probably won't have much time at all to show her after 2018 (we ended up 3rd Rookie for MN QH, going to go for Champion next year) , so I figured since I think he would be a REALLY nice cross on her and he's getting older... might as well breed her next spring, and not have any heat cycles to deal with all show season! ;)

    For anyone that may now know them

    Only have one mare that we are planning on breeding next year. Unfortunately this is the only picture I have of Cricket right now since she's always up in my face otherwise :rolleyes:

    She will be bred to Lil Spoon as I bought the breeding last year for another mare, however that didn't work out.

    This mare is extremely bigboned and has a huge hip and shoulder to match. Seems a lot taller then the barely 14.3 she sticks at. We're hoping for a cross that can cut, but if that does'n't work out we won't hesitate to put baby through barrel training.

    If it doesn’t cut, don’t hesitate to send it to *me* for barrel racing.:ROFLMAO:

    They posted this picture of Little Spoon recently:

    And I drooled.
    He is now on my “stallions for speed x cow” list. :p

    I was just considering my mini crosses, and I change those around a bit before finalizing, so I don't know there. I also have two breedings to a stallion I may or may not use this coming spring... it was the plan, but I may hold off another year, haven't decided.

    But the one I did decide on...
