    Default Your Top 10 for your dream breeding program:

    Ok, it's hot, and muggy and yucky, and i have no interest in going outside, so i was looking at horsies online.. getting my "fix" for the day.. and was thinking about who I'd love to breed to, past and present stallions, assuming I had the appropriate mares. Since this is fantasy... no need to have the right mare, we'll assume they are in the pasture. Money is no object.. So I divided mine into 4 sections (Deceased, Arabian, Quarter Horse, and non-Arabian to use on Arabian Mares). Divy them up however you'd like though.

    Top 10 deceased stallions (w/ no frozen available lol):
    Serafix (arabian)
    Man O War (TB)
    Three Bars (TB.. though I'd breed him to QHs lol)
    Doc Bar (QH)
    Galero (Arabian)
    Kasio (Arabian)
    Eyarth Celebration (Welsh)
    Wedderlie Maradonna (Welsh)
    Skowronek (Arabian)
    Carmargue (Arabian)

    Top 11 Arabian Stallions (I can't go lower than 11 lol)
    Taez
    Magic Domino
    FCF Oberon's Vanity
    Kordelas
    Rushan
    Tiberio
    S S Orion ( i love my grandson of his lol)
    Belesemo Obsidian
    RD Five Star
    Exodus I +//
    Aul Magic

    Top 10 non-arabians to breed an Arabian mare to:
    Wedderlie Mardi Gras (Welsh)
    Eyarth Eragon (Welsh)
    Evan's Demphir (Welsh)
    Oskar II (Trakehner)
    Abdullah (Trakehner)
    Holyoake Copperfield (Welsh)
    Covenant Knight Heir (Morgan)
    Wedderlie Marmaduke (Welsh)
    Hollywood Dun It (QH)
    Hollywood White (QH)

    Top 10 Quarter horses:
    Hollywood Dun It
    Peptoboonsmal
    Royal Blue Boon
    Hollywood White
    Dun It Witha Twist
    Smart Little Lena
    Gallo Del Cielo
    Firewater Flit

    Oh I forgot about Ladykiller.. dang lol. Great list!!!

    edit: and feel free to add onto the list. I considered doing Top 10 bays, Greys and Chestnuts seperately, then realized that i'd have to go thru a lot of colors with the pallys, buckskins, creme, and roans on my list.. lol.

    I'll play.

    Irco Mena (top jumping sire who was a top producer and passed on wonderful temperaments)

    Rotspon (I've seen so many of his offspring who are so kind and willing to work)

    Top Star (quirky, brilliant jumping sire, hardly used, with bloodlines back to legendary horses. I would love to have bred some quality mares to him to see what he could really produce when given a chance)

    Perechlest (International GP dressage stallion, full brother to an international jumper, sired by the outstanding Hockey. I really want to use this stallion before it's too late and he's gone)

    Stan the Man (Superb looking horse and world class event sire)

    Garnered, Master Spiritus, Bohemond (ditto above)

    Miley (Coloured horse out of a dam of unknown breeding, never had many mares and few of any quality but has sired Advanced eventers and is leading UK based sire of GP dressage horses! Passes on fantastic temperaments)

    Mtoto (brilliant racehorse and sire of leading National Hunt sire Presenting)

    I'm sure there are dozens of others.

    Oh I do so like Lusitanos too... But I couldn't fit them into the Arab X theme lol. I just never have seen an Arab x Baroque breed (Fresian, Andalusion, Lusitano) that has made my heart beat faster lol. (and the only Draft x Arabs I've ever seen have been downright fugly lol). Not everything crosses well with arabians I guess.. (Just 90% of the other breeds of horses lol).

    Default In random order, mostly Irish

    Cruising
    Penmeryll's Rhythm and Blues
    KEC Double Diamond
    Steeped In Luck
    Son Rise Genesis
    Manu Forti's Sea Hawk
    Triple Twist
    Silver Twist
    Mountain Pearl
    O"Leary's Irish Diamond


    Touch of the Blues,Snowford Bellman, Bridon Belfrey and Winmaur Sgt Pepper and Glenlara aren't on the list because I have bred to them or have a horse by them.

    Someone need to write a computer program where you could input a stallion's and mare's pedigree and pictures and it would print out pictures (suitable for framing oif course) of the offspring
