I decided to make a thread. Please don’t eat me. I’m toying with the idea of breeding Brandi next spring, life and budget allowing. If you think this is a horrible idea, I’m 100% willing to hear you out, whether I ultimately end up agreeing with you or not. I’ve always maintained that I wouldn’t need her, but I decided to give the possibility one last serious think. I am not opposed to buying a prospect instead. I like the certainty of that. If I do breed her, I want to make sure that there would be a market for the foal in case something happened that meant I couldn’t keep it forever. I like her athleticism. She’s very much a can-do type of western horse. She get lots of compliments on her movement st shows and lately people locally have been raving about her conformation. (Yes, I know she has flaws) Most people are certain she’s bred better than she is. Just a nice little horse. I’m shopping for a prospect or breeding her, I’d be looking for the 2.0 version of her. Dotties Bonnie Lassie Paint I’ve adored No Guns Please for years now. If she was a Quarter Horse, I’d probably take her to him, no question. He seems like a can-do type of western performance horse to. Plus he’s gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. I’m concerned that, since Brandi is a solid APHA, who more than likely had a white killing gene, I’d get little to no white on baby. Which is kind of a problem with a Paint.... No Guns Please Quarter Horse I did find this guy. A Cow bred homozygous Tobiano who is extremely well bred, especially for a homozygous Tobiano Paint. I like the athleticism that a cow horse stallion brings to the table. In watching videos and looking at pictures of him, he seems like the sort of horse I’d like to ride. He guarantees color on the foal, which adds some marketability/appeal. He hasn’t been shown a whole lot, but he’s a using horse on a working ranch which is just as good if not better in my book. He cuts, he ropes, he sorts, he does anything. Smart Dual Pep Paint The best conformation picture they have of him was when he was either a yearling or barely 2. In searching for a tie breaker, I also found this guy. Also homozygous Tobiano. Also very well bred. More to the reining side like No Guns Please. Thoughts, opinions, and suggestions welcome. Just keep in mind that I am sensible person willing to hear reason and you don’t have to eat me.
