I was just curious which stallions everybody has selected for their mares for 2009 foals?

You can see all my mares here: http://www.secretambitionstables.com/mares.htm

For Kahlua it will be Fabuleux (http://bridlewoodhanoverians.com/fabuleux.php)

For Trea (Queen Tyree) it will be Escudo II (http://rainbowequus.com/escudo.html)

For Gracie (Diamonds Are Foreverr), Kitty (Arkansas Susie), and Tesora it will be my guy, Bur Dal Lord Solomon (http://www.secretambitionstables.com/burdallordsolomon.htm)

And for Bailey (Roxannah) I am still trying to decide, she didnt take with the one dose of frozen semen I had, so it's currently looking like it could be Opus (http://www.littlebitfarminc.com/id23.html), but not sure of that yet.


What about all of you?

Well, I have picked "Huntin For Chocolate" for my two mares this year:
http://www.huntinforchocolate.com/

But, right now my mares seem to be seeing how much of my money they can run up in mare care bills :-)
Neither of them have decided to settle. They are just "monkeying around".

This is "Sarah" aka Serenade By Skip:

And this is "Missy" aka Zip Ta Two:

Hey Catherine..have you ever tried the Oxytocin protocol or the drug Settle...one year after 2 AI tries....lots of $$$ in vet bills we used both on the 3rd try and it worked...I know that you have your mares at a reputable breeding farm but just thought I'd throw that out...

I'm not sure yet. I want to find a nice Creamello-hoping for a buckskin filly. I think one of my colt's parents carries the buckskin gene. Her baby is a bay, but has the dorsal stripe and a few other tell tale signs.

Anyone have recommendations for a creamello stallion in Central CA? I want one with a very good disposition.

Jan,
Thanks for the suggestion but we have already "been there and done that". We are hoping that one (Sarah) has caught this time around. Missy is still wanting to be a "party girl" and won't go out of heat. They have tried about everything with her and the last I knew, we thought that beating our heads on the wall might help :-)
Seriously, we think Missy is still transitioning.

Okay..then I have fingers and toes crossed that Sarah is "caught" :-) when is the ultrasound? and hopefully Missy will get down to business :-)

Well, they bred Sarah (second time around) on May 3rd and May 5th. So we are looking at about a 5/22 ultrasound.
Missy, who knows? That poor child is probably about the weirdest horse I have ever owned. I bought her in Nov of last year ('07) along with Sarah --- Missy sort of got "thrown into" the deal. Missy had a foal in 2006 and they never weaned it so it cause some ligament damage to her udder. She has a crooked foot (caused by an injury --- not genetic) and this is the one I have wrote so much about that absolutely HATES anything else equine (and I mean anything --- stallion, mare, gelding, fat, tall, short, bay, palomino, sorrel ---- it doesnt matter). She honestly thinks she is a people and would go to the house at night with me if I would let her. Its a good thing they AI (I'm sure Huntin For Chocolate is glad too!)

Poor little Missy, she is so messed up (oh yes, and she is a light "cribber" too) that I'll probably never sell her. I don't think anyone would ever understand her. She has become pretty attached to me in the short time that I have had her and so we will see. If nothing else she is really pretty and has good breeding and you can ride her a bit (she actually has some Western Pleasure points) as long as you don't overdo it (bad foot).

Missy keep developing great follicles, just won't go "out".

They hit her with an Oxytocin Injection on 4/30 and also did a uterine infusion (Gen/Pen) that same day. We will see.

Thanks Jan :-) So far we have Tesora and Gracie settled.


I am a huge advocate for oxytocin, after 8 or 9 tries with Tesora, we did the Oxytocin Protocal, and got her settled :D



Catherine- I'm sending prego vibes your way!



CJ- What about Raleigh's Full Moon? I am in Northern California (about 45 minutes out of Sacramento), and have seen this guy at numerous Dressage shows. He has an exceptional temperment as far as I can tell, always a very well behaved guy. My previous trainer was going to breed her Warmblood mare to Raleigh's Full Moon, just because he had such an exceptional temperment (the mare was out of her mind), but for some reason or another decided not to breed her at all. Anyways, here is his page: http://www.moonrockarabians.com/gen-info.html

Cjskip, he's not an Arabian. The breeders are using him with their Arabs to produce half Arabs that have color. So, he would still work for you :-)

Raleighs Full Moon is actually QH, lol, I guess they like to cross him on their Arab mares though.

Even though I dont breed QHs, I am a big advocate for this boy's temperment :-)


There is one other Cremello stallion in this area, I am trying to remember his name, and not having a whole lot of luck

Ok, I picked Shiner Dun It to breed to Poco Bay Jessie (Jessie) this year. He's a perlino (A/A) so I have an 87.5% chance at buckskin, 12.5% chance at palomino. He's a granson of Hollywood Dun It and Shining Spark and a g- grandson of Docs Prescription. I'm super excited!! Todays actually baby making day, so keep your fingers crossed!!

will get new pics of Jessie when she comes back from the repro clinic

I have chosen Two Eyed Alibi! I leased him from his owner for breeding and competeing! Anyone interested in breeding to him let me know! He is APHA,Appaloosa,and Pinto approved along with a few other breeds aswell.. Basically any breed of mare bred to him is able to get papers! YAY!!! Him and my grey mare will be meeting SOON! Here are some pics! (He is also a little over 87% foundation)

DOING A "HAPPY DANCE" THIS MORNING!!!!!!

"Missy" (aka Zip Ta Two, aka "Problem Child") showed up PREGNANT on the ultrasound they did on her yesterday (4/28 breeding date). I am going to wait until they do a "heartbeat" one at the end of the month before I get too "worked up" but I am HAPPY this morning. I have to admit I have thoughts of "what color will it be?" "is it a filly or colt?" already running around my head!!!

Sarah is still "on track" from the 05/03 and 05/05 breedings and I think they will do her first ultrasound sometime next week.

Dancing with you...just enjoy the moment Catherine :-) You used the Oxytocin Protocol right? I know that it worked with my mare that was difficult to get pregnant.

Jan -- lol! I just have the scene from 'Look Who's Talking' in my head when you say that!

Congratulations Catherine! I find out today whether Jessie ovulated or not. I'm praying so hard that she did. They gave her the first 'dose' of semen yesterday and the second today. I'm so nervous with AI, I've always used live cover before. I hope she takes on the first try, for my wallets sake! I sypmathize with you Catherine, I know it will be buckskin or palomino, but which one?? I'm also torn between whether I want a colt or filly...

I'm not sure, they said they would call me today but I haven't heard from them. Should I call? I don't want to be a pest, but I'm not sure what is expected from me, and Jessie's my baby! The vet I took her to is a repro vet, so I assume that he would know to give her the shot but who knows with these people:-)

Yes Jan, It was the Oxytocin that most likely did the trick with her. I'll just think that anyway. I honestly thought she would be the one we would have 100 things of trouble with. Poor little girl is about as squirrelly as they come.

Saleste, I would go ahead and call them at least.

Ok, I called the vet and they said she hadn't ovulated yet but he was going to check her again today around 4-4:30. He said she was big and 'soft' (I assume he means her follicle:-)) so she 'should' go but no gaurantee. From what I gathered, they hadn't given her the shot. I don't know why, maybe they're just banking on her having a 'regular' heat cycle. If her cycle is normal, she should ovulate today. I'm going to be a nervous wreck by the time this is all over

I think if they ultrasound when the inseminate this afternoon if she has not ovulated then they should give her the shot to be on the safe side.

Big and soft is good in this case :-)

Good luck Saleste!

Well, I am going to look at a potential stallion for Bailey tomorrow. He looks pretty nice from the pictures, and he is standing at a Stallion station about an hour and a half away from me. Anyways, meet Edelweiss de Bonce!

I will hopefully get some pictures of him, and post them here :D

This is the stud Rebel is bred to. I scanned the ad from an old Peak to Peak magazine. He is a son of Imaginate (leading sire of halter horses) who is off the Sheldak Ranch in North Dakota. He looks much better than this pic shows.

SHE OVULATED!!!! We went and picked her up tonight, she ovulated sometime between the time I posted this afternoon (2-2:30) and 4:30. So hopefully they caught her. For some reason her front feet are very sore. She's limping bad and she wasn't when we dropped her off. Do you think it may have been the concrete?? She's not really used to walking on it and she was barefoot. It's a little worrisome...

Nope, no heat. Her legs are just the slightest bit swollen, she looks horrible but there weren't any signs of any real probs.

Yep, he gave her the first dose on the 13th and the second on the 14th, then she ovulated early afternoon of the 14th. Stacey Newville (she owns Shiner) said that she had tested his sperm motility after three days and it was still at 50%. Of course, it got bounced around alot between Arizona and Arkansas, but hopefully the sperm was still pretty mobile!! My fingers are crossed for that 15 day preg check. Stacey stops collecting on June 1st, so....

My boyfriend was laughing at me because about 3 hours after we brought her home, I told him I had to go check on her. When I came back he said, 'Is she looking any bigger yet?'. Smart aleck It's going to be a long 11 months for him... I tend to get a little 'excited'!

Diana, what pretty horses! I especially like Candyat! I too love this DUHHhhhhhhhhhhtinuation!

Okay everyone, I am a total novice at breeding! My mare that foaled about 2 weeks ago, was already bred when I bought her. I have some questions of course! LOL!

My girl is a nicely pedigreed, foundation QH. I am thinking about breeding to a Morgan, just because I like the breed, but is that a dumb idea, considering her pedigree? Jeeezzzz-I think I just answered my own question! I ought to take advantage of her good QH breeding and raise these babies for what they are intended for, rather than dilute the genes! I can always get a Morgan some other way.

By the way, I don't recall anyone having a Morgan on this board. Just wonder why that is?

So I think I am going to go with a Cremello QH with good pedigree and hope for a buckskin. I think there's a good chance.
The baby has a little buckskin color to him now. He will be a bay though.

But she has a little bit of roaning. Is there anything I need to be cautious of in breeding? That is to watch out for health wise or anything?

I'm reading up on the lethal white genes and that, but there is a lot more to this, I'm sure. I need to decide soon, so I can get her bred. I don't want a baby any closer to the summer than I can possible stay away from. It gets so hot that I don't want to put her through a late foaling.

Any knowledge of a Creamello QH stallion in the central valley would be appreciated as would any input, of course.

I do wish you all an easy breeding with a take on the first cover!

Another thing (I asked this on another (wrong) thread; sorry.

How do you choose a stallion? Lots out there. Let's say I want to sell my foals? Do I breed to a show or performance stallion? One that is well known?

Or does very good breeding create as much interest? Obviously health, disposition and conformation is critical too.

I hope my question makes sense.

CJ,
Well known bloodlines always help the sale of a foal/yearling.
You can have two nice yearlings that are well-built and roughly parallel each other in postivites/negatives. The one with the more "well-known" bloodlines will almost invariably sell first/bring more than the "lesser known" bred colt.
Its the old "who's your daddy" thing in a horsey sense.

Breeding the best to the best is what we all strive for. Interpretations of "best" of course vary from person to person. Suffice it to say that there is an old saying:
"It costs just as much to feed a good horse as a sorry one".

Interpret this as while you may have a few thousand dollars at the outset of a breeding project (stud fee), it costs just as much to breed the mare, feed the mare while she is pregnant, get the foal on the ground, feed the foal, etc.---no matter what stallion you breed her to.

On down the road, oftentimes the higher stud fee paid at the outset can be easily recaptured once the foal is sold (well-known bloodlines can often equal a higher selling price), or shown (quality individuals do more winning).

That helps Catherine. I do understand that quality is what one ought to breed for, because we don't want to dilute good genes. When I bought my mare I didn't fully appreciate her pedigree until so many people told me she was of very good lines and even without knowing her lines they told me she is "foundation QH."

So I started thinking about her offspring. She was bred to a very nice stallion. I would never breed average horses. NO OFFENSE intended. There are many WONDERFUL horses out there that are great for riding and competition and all that. But I would leave the breeding of them to more knowledgeable people, who want to improve the line, or cross breeds or whatever. I felt the same way when I raised Boston Terriers, many years ago.

I'm just not sure if I ought to look for a stallion who is known for pedigree and performance, or will pedigree alone due?

And how the heck does a newbie like me know what a good line is anyway? LOL! I've been so busy focusing on the coming baby that I gave almost no thought to the next breeding. And now it is upon me! And I feel a little bit like I did when I found out my mare was "due" a month early: UNPREPARED!

Is there anywhere I can get a mini-course in selecting a stallion? I've looked at a lot of stallions online. I may have to transport my mare a bit to get the one I want. Don't know that I want to get into the whole artificial insemination route.

Quarter Horse, Catherine. I had a thought about crossing with a Morgan, but that isn't a wise plan. So with this mare, I'll stick with the QH.

As for discipline, I guess I am not sure yet. Perhaps I need to answer that first! I still have some research to do.

CJ,
Quarter horses are VERY diverse. It all depends on what discipline you want to pursue. There are worlds of differences between halter horses, western pleasure horses, English horses and the cattle events. Even reining has gotten to be a discipline "unto itself".

Halter horses are way different than Western Pleasure horses and both are totally apart from English events. The better Hunter Under Saddle horses are now 16.2 or better and have been so crossed out with thoroughbreds that a lot of them can be 3/4 TB. Western pleasure is a whole other game and that is what I "specialize" in. We don't like for our horses to get much over 15 hands (particuarly futurity prospects) and there is definitely some lines that WP horse are bred along. You absolutely can not get away from Zippo Pine Bar and Hotrodders Jetset breeding in AQHA. Invitation Only is probably the most predominate active cross-out sire in the discipline for Zippo and Hotrod breeding.

Reining and working cowhorse events are their own "religion".

I suggest you start subscribing to the Quarter Horse journal and join AQHA. AQHA has excellent novice info/events, etc.

Thank-you once again, Catherine, for so much advice. I am getting ready to send in the transfer papers on Jewel (no, I haven't done it yet)! So I am joining and also will subscribe to the magazine. I have a neighbor I recently met and she does "sport horse handling." I'm going to check into that. I think Western Pleasure is where I want go.

I absolutely love to watch English riding, particularly Dressage, but it is not something I'm suited for.

I'll check out those names you mentioned. Around here, Doc Bar and Colonel Freckles are the big names, along with a few others. I will continue to research.

I think my neighbor will be a great resource as well. We seem to have hit it off-so I'm pretty happy to know a real horse person who has shown and done this all her life. Yippeeee!!!!

Samantha I agree, I figure when you find something you LOVE stick with it. I have had horses my entire life and never have I seen such unbelievable temperment and talent in horses as these Ironman offspring. I visited Crossroads last Sept and met a lot more offspring and they are all superior, something about them reaches into my soul. Like I said I am SOOOOOOOOO excited!!!

cj want is her reg. name?
I like a well rounded QH. blood matters but looks and brains matter a hole bunch to. I barrel Race but i wnat a horse that i can take on a trail ride today and run tomarrow - all the really good barrel horses out there are crossed to chidado v and three bars (-they had three sons- three chicks- triple chick - the old man) all three were race horses LIKE AAA and AAAT runners. But they also were halter and preformers as well. But i think that crossing a horse bred to be fast and one bred to be showy(halter) turn out so good.
You get the level head of a show horse and the speed and agility of a fast one.

Alot of horses that are doing so good in western are crosses like this.

You dont have to pay alot to get a good horse.You need to look at the market in your area to decided how much you are willing to spend. If you pay 600 for a stud few spend all winter feeding her and vet visits and then the few months or a year before you sell your in $1500 to 2000! if horses are selling for $2000 fully broke and protrianed in just abut any disapline you like -like they are in my area all you have is heart ache seeing your baby leave.... Im jsut saying make sure you dont put more in then what its worth with out customer to sell to

you almost cant give a horse away here!

So we are preparing to breed Kahlua to Fabuleux, the vet mentioned today that she is a caslicks canadite? She aborted the last foal at 150 days, I am scared to death about caslicking her (she has never had it done, and has had 5 live foals, but she is 18 now) and having her abort. I don't think her conformation is poor, what are your thoughts? This is my favorite mare, and I really just want the best for her.

I worked on the LAWaters ranch for 8 years and thats where they stood Colonel Freckles! He was a great horse and had a great temperment that he passed on to all his offspring along with his ability to 'cut a cow'.

Samantha, my mare's last foal she was 17 and this time we caslicked after the previous year losing a foal to a red bag delivery. My vets thoughts were that with age her confirmation was not poor but she was just more open and dirty in the back area and just as another layer of precaution. Of course this was going to be my last breeding of her. Caslick no problem, removal no problem, foal born no problem. My vet even Caslicked her back up after foaling since I do not intend to rebreed her. I saw under your vets direction...don't be afraid.

Hello everyone! I'm not rebreeding my mare this year, but am looking for a prospect for next year. My interests are showing halter, WP, trail, and lungeline. Are there any Quarter and/or Paint studs out there that excel at all these traits? Why can't I seem to find a stud that can do it all? If they are halter bred, and have good conformation you would think they would do well at just about anything? In today's market, are Halter horses more valuable than WP horses? I just wanted to get everyone's opinions on the subject. Thanks in advance!

Forgot to ask one more thing. If I do breed my mare to a QH, what are the chances that the foal would have color? My mare is a breeding stock paint. Her sire is an overo. Even though she is a breeding stock she should still carry the overo gene, right?????

Paul, so you worked with Colonel Freckles! Wow! Let me tell you, this mare was something in her day-I'm certain of it. I'm trying to find the previous owners, but she can stop on a dime! She pens goats (totally her own idea). So maybe Colonel Freckles had something to do with that.

She is a good horse-not a mean bone in her body, but a bit standofish. Was Colonel Freckles that way too?

Thank-you Samantha and Tammy for the Ironman recommendation. I have sooooo much research to do.

Corina, she is a foundation QH. Very nice. I personally would not breed anything but a topnotch horse (just me-I had the same philosophy when I bred dogs).

I wouldn't have known she had such good breeding until I was told by so many people in the business that she did.

I honestly have seen people who are looking at horses for sale stop, and do a double take when they see her.

Her name is Oaks Jewel Doll and I'm very proud to own this fabulous mare, whose qualities I've had nothing to do with! I've owned her all of about four months. She is not sound, so I can't ride except for a little walk around. She's 18 so I want to get at least two more foals out of her if I can, before I retire her.

She sure wants a job to do! Glad she has her little baby boy to keep her occupied! Well, enough bragging. I'm just so very lucky to own this fine mare is all.

I see at least two people besides me are trying for a buckskin!

Catherine, happy for ya! We'll all be sharing DUHHdom! Even if your's will be at the foaling farm! LOL!

Anyway, I'm just very impressed with these horses. Wow! It would be interesting to keep track of the 2008 babies and see how they do, for those who are showing.

I dont think i could ever go for a stallion that i didnt at least me in person once. You knwo there are alot of people on here who have some great men to look at, try looking into the stallion pages there is a link about pictures and website of the studlys we all own.

Corina, I agree that tempermant is paramount. I wouldn't breed to a bad tempered stallion regardless of how great his pedigree or color and comformation.

I'll try to find the link you mentioned. There are a lot more options with the AI now. I may just end up breeding to the same stallion. Nice babies, but no buckskins.

CJ,
I am a long way from you but I have a really nice chestnut QH stallion that has Colonel Freckles on his papers. He would be the Grandsire on the sires side. He also goes back to Two Eyed Jack,Impressive(HYPP N/N),Leo, Whimpy and lots more you can check out his fully pedigree at allbreedpedigree.com just search for Two Eyed Alibi . He is approved through the APHA and Appaloosa horse Club and Registered with AQHA,PtHA(he has overo caricteristics) and the ranch horse association. He barely missed being foundation at 84.765625% (they require I think 85% to qualify) Here are some pics of him and 2 of his babies. I can get better pics of him. His stud fee is $250 we can collect from him at the mare owners expence as I normally do live breeding.The reason he is price this cheap is because we are getting his name out.He has an A+ temperment and I cant say enough about him! Conformation is also an A+! These pics dont do him justice..

I bred my mare, Carly, to this amazing stallion Dragtime (AKA: Cowboy). He is a beautiful buckskin tobiano paint who is homozygous for the tobiano gene.

I show on the APHA (American Paint Horse Association) circuit on my show gelding. Cowboy is a stallion in training at my trainers, and I have gotten to watch him go through his training and development into this amazing, talented horse. And I also know his owners, who are wonderful people, which makes the whole experience even better. Cowboy competes in Heading, Heeling, Halter, Tie Down Roping, Stake Race, Pole Bending, Barrel Racing, Reining, and Steer Stopping. He has multiple ROMs and at this years APHA World Show, he won the World Championship in Heading, multiple top 5s and top 10s, and finished as 3rd All Around Horse of the whole show.

He has an amazing calm demeanor, and he has let children rope off of him for their first time. He just had his first foal crop this year, and my baby will be the first foal born since he won his world championship.

Heres some pix of him in action:

Bailey is in foal to Rubino Bellissimo (http://www.1derful.com/home.html), thanks to a very generous offering by his owner :-)

We didn't get Kahlua in foal, so we bred her daughter, Dolly, to Fabuleux.

Angel, looks like a nice pedigree. Do you have a pic? How many mares? How many foals due this year?

I have read back at my posts from last Spring and oh my! I've learned a little since then, though I have a long way to go before I feel proficient at the whole, "choosing a stallion," thing. I try to get a lot of advice.

I am breeding my "Oaks Jewel Doll" to" Heart Of A Fox." I'm looking at six different stallions for my new mare, "Fresnos Bonita." There is a lot to consider.

I'm thinking we have 5 more to foal this year of our own and 2 that we have sold that are bred to him. Our first baby this year is under foalwatch under "Hannah foaled" in the announcement section. Is there a website for Heart of a Fox?

So you have 5 more to foal. Are they close together?

He is a good looking fellow! I have a gelding that deep dark color and I love it! The 5 are all due around late March to early May. I'm starting to wonder if a couple of them are actually pregnant, as they don't look so much now, but they are also maidens. I'll try my best to get Gunner out this weekend and take some good pics of him, this is an older one in his outside "clothes"...

I was going to post a new link, then looked to see if there already was one and just clicked on this without thinking. My 2 foals will not be born until next Feb. or so.

Gunner is gorgeous! Wow! What is his color classification? Do you manage all the breeding yourself? Or do you have a manager?

I am looking at a gray, that was donated to the local college for my second mare. He is out of super bloodlines.

Thank you! He is a dun with the creme gene...or a buckskin with the dun gene, whichever sounds better, lol. We do it all ourselves, which isn't as bad as it sounds since we don't breed that many a year. I like grays. We have a gray mare out of Hollywood Heat that is bred to our Gunner for this year. Gonna be interesting to see what color this one turns out to be.

I've got 3 out of 4 chosen for sure. Although I might end up breeding 6 mares this year.... thats the hope anyways, if all the ducks line up correctly, then we'll have 6 foals next year :-) However, I'll only speak of the ones for sure lol.

I have chosen Moonbeams N Stardust for my stallion. He is old timey Tennessee Walker, back from Roy Rogers' Trigger's dad. He was gaiting since he was born, has a fabulous kind spirit and would rather get beat up by my mare before he steps on me.

He carries the uber shiny champagne gene and a creme gene, so he looks like a cremello.

I've mated him with my Spotted Saddle horse, Lorilyns Muffin. She is alpha but she has a good mind and raised Moonbeam after he was weaned from his mama.
I just posted this website, so I have a lot more pictures to add. Where is the thread for those waiting on 2009 foals? I want to compare udders and belly shots!
