Thanks to all the posters on this topic. This mare's dam is Miss Allience, by Allience, and out of a Governor daughter. She's just 14.3 (yes--"back in the day" this would've seemed a nice average size!) so several of the stallions mentioned I've ruled out on this basis, even though I love them. I'd breed to Mamage in a heartbeat if the mare was bigger. Peter, how big is Magic, and what kind of size has he produced in his foals? Some interesting new names have emerged in this thread--I'll certainly check them out. Yes--I recognize what a corner we've bred ourselves into in the SS division. It makes breeding Half-Arabians a very viable alternative, and probably one I'll pursue with this mare eventually. This actually makes me a little sad--because I love the purebreds so much--but the breeding options are really limited for what I want to produce, and these days a great moving Half-Arab is selling for as much or more than a purebred, at least in our part of the country.
Happy New Year to all!
Magic is 15 hh 1/2 inch barefoot and has sired size. I have a 15.1 1/2 hh mare by him out of a 14.3hh mare that I'd like to lease. She had a wonderful TC Miyake filly in 2010. That is why I wanted to see you go with TC Miyake. I think he is for real. If your mare wasn't out of an Allience daughter I'd recommend Chris Johnson's Allience son Ballience V but maybe that is too close. You need to talk to Kim Morris who owns Miyake and see if she can show you foals out of mares bred like yours.
