    Default Welsh Stallion size advice please

    I have a filly that I will probably give another year off (fractured pastern). She is 3 years old and is 15.2 ish. She string tests at 16.1. Her dam is 15.1 ish and throws Big foals, her sire was 16.3.

    Do you think I could get away with a Section B Welsh and get a large pony given she is a maiden? Or should I stick to Section A?

    Yes you can for a first foal. I'd go with a smaller Section B (12.2 max).

    I agree. You can use a smaller Section B with a good chance of getting a large pony. I have a couple of nice movers and there are a few others out there. Good luck in your search!

    My Blue Who is 11.2. His dam was a section A, so lots of small behind him. Sire is Blue Rain.
    I have bred him to warmbloods, tb's, quarter horses , all with a lot of size. He seems to keep the large ones in the pony range.

    Thanks guys. I want a full Welsh so I can get half Welsh papers. And because I'm not up for a Sabino Surprise (mare carries sabino), I'd like a solid stallion. And if that wasn't enough criteria, I'd also like a proven producer!

    Not sure what the choices are for smaller section B stallions that are soiid colored and proven producers. By that do you mean he needs to have offspring on the ground that are winning under saddle?and I am assuming you want hunter movement? I am interested to see some of the options. I hope others offer up some suggestions. Good luck in your search.

    Not necessarily under saddle, but I would like to know that the stallion is fertile and doesn't produce foals with two heads etc. Because the filly is a maiden, I don't know what she will throw into the equation, so it would be nice to see what a stallion produces from a variety of mares. She's got a lot of bone, which is why I really wanted to go with a B and not an A.

    There are several here to choose from, most of which have been proven:

    Heights are listed.

    Champlain Rainmaker is a nice one, and he is listed there.
