Hi all! I used to be pretty into breeding and what not but in the last few years, I’ve kind of fallen out of it. But my mare is approaching 16, and I’d like to get back into it. I’m coming here because I know you all know stallions and I’m looking for some suggestions. Off the top of my head, Emerald, Negro, Contucci, and Qredit are still the first ones to come to my mind.
My mare is 15 and is a very lovely mare. She is sired by Quite Easy (Quidam de Revel x Landgraf I) and her mother was sired by Contender out of a Schampus mare. She is grey and I would prefer to attempt to NOT get grey (yes she has melanoma, and we have decided to do an ET because of it). Fantastic mind; but can be a bit spooky (however, I was the only rider (really) of her for her entire life so some of that might just be my bad riding) and sensitive to her rider. Has schooled 1.35m with ease, shown successfully up to 1.0m (again, if I wasn’t a chicken, she could have gone farther) with aim to do the 1.10m next year. IMO, she has a great neck and shoulder, good back length, and fantastic legs. I do wish she had a better hind end. Great canter, good trot. I’d like to get a jumper out of her, so not looking for hunter or dressage (but yes, dressage sires would probably improve her hind end). Never has had lameness issues, has strong feet (just got shod for the first time this year), healthy aside from the melanoma.
Anywayyyyy does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks so much! I’d include a confo pic, but I don’t have any recent ones.
Lordanos question in second reply!
