OK -- this is for a friend of mine, so I don't know what the mare looks like. My friend was recently given a mare by Welcome S o/o a TB mare. Apparently this mare has some good success with a junior in the (either) jumper or hunter scene.
She asked me about jumper stallions and since I breed almost totally for dressage (outside my Tekes), I am somewhat at a loss.
So who does you guys feel is a "good deal" for stallions in the USA (no frozen, please) in terms of quality, price AND marketibilty. When I say that, I don't mean only proven athletic ability. Younger stallions are ok, if they are proving to have a strong market for their foals thus far.
My friend wants to just turn her out with the local Teke stallion, but I tried to tell her the WB market is far stronger that Teke half-breds (especially if they don't have color).
So if my pals on COTH (or even my enemies ) could help me out - -for now, don't worry about registries, etc. I'll sort all that out. Just names & a contact start if possible.
I dont know if this would work for you at all, but because of all the CM hassle to Canada, I have a breeding to Scimitar that I wont use, and I will sell it for $600 USD. let me know! ( he is Sylvio I- Calypso II)
