I have decided to breed my lovely palomino Barbie next spring
we had her in the barn this past week to get some shoes on her tender front feet and I remembered what a sweetheart she is..................plus I was out to ride her now 4 year old son yesterday and realized I "NEEDED" another one of those in my future

I have lost track of the two stallions I most wanted to breed her to...............Maranello or Fire an Ice.
Wondering if anyone knows where they are, if they are still breeding them, etc.
I looked at Mostly Padron but his stud fee is $3500 and that just does not seem realistic for me in this market

I am not sure but make sure she is tested for CA if you use Mostly Padron, I could be wrong but he may be a carrier.

Are you wanting a purebred 'palomino' type horse? (Not that they are truly a palomino or maybe they are but there is controversy)

I was going to say there are some really really nice up and coming young boys around right now that are very affordable if you really look , if you want big names then you pay the price for that fee. Basically meaning 'promoted stallions' by big name.

I was just not sure if Barbie is a purebred arab with flaxen or a true palomino.

I don't know where FAI is right now, but he has had only one foal per year since 2009.
Maranello has no registered progeny since 2010. He has had a new owner since July of 2011, this person: DEANNE MUNSON-THODE
16363 NORELL AVE N
MARINE ON SAINT CROIX, MN 55047 US


ETA: Since Lacinda commented on a possible CA problem with Mostly Padron, I will offer a comment of my own. You say Barbie has tender front feet, with Maranello being double Bey Shah-bred, would you not be worried about insulin resistance or a genetic tendency towards founder with this cross?

Gorgeous :) I would go for a beautiful chestnut that is standing at a great fee, there are SO many beautiful chestnuts out there right now....Montana has one that everyone is using (Firenze), My friend Aislinn Brander has a great one that Om El and *Numaa breeding and he actually has some flaxen, and I see them everywhere. Aislinn's boy is big. Not sure she can do AI though.

If I see anymore I will let you know.

Oh and there is always Trussardi if you want a high stud fee :)

I'm sure you know that breeding to one of the flaxen chestnuts doesn't give you any better chance of a palomino... so really just look for a nice stallion you like :)

Have you seen this guy?

I have to agree about the palomino/flaxen comment, I bred my flaxen mare to a palomino stallion twice and never got palomino OR flaxen from the cross!
Rumonek, who is that blond stallion?

Firenze is a nice horse, but it would depend what you want to do with your foal Siiamese. Fire N Ice did throw his flaxen more than some chestnuts :) Whether it was just good luck or whatnot who knows.

His name is Gold N Rio.
I got one flaxen foal, from two non-flaxen parents. Go figure ;)
