Magnum Chic Dream
Almost two years ago we started the process of choosing the right stud horse to breed to one of our mares. The mare we have had for years and is definitely my dad’s favorite horse. So choosing the perfect stud to breed to her seemed like a daunting task. The mare is out of Rooster (Gallo Del Cielo) and a Shining Spark mare. This mare is definitely on the more cow horse bred side but has a strong background in the Reining. In general she has more of a frazzled mind but is extremely athletic and talented. Conformationally she is too long in the back but has good bone structure and “looks”. When trying to find a stud we had to keep all of those things in mind. We wanted an easy minded horse that still has the athletic qualities and has a good rep for throwing quit minded horses. Also we wanted a horse that could shorten up the babies back and maybe give it a good height. After a lot of research I was dead set on my choice as a stud. I was sure I wanted the baby be bred for the reining and have a chance at the futurity. After a bit of persuading I got my dad on board. The stud we had chosen was Magnum Chic Dream. He had all the attributes we were looking for and not to mention gorgeous looks. When it comes to looking for the right stud it's important to be patient and do lots and lots of research, as well as knowing what the strengths and weaknesses of the mare are to make sure you find the right fit and get the nicest horse you can because at the end of all this it definitely is not a cheap process.
I am going to turn this into a mini series on how this process has been and what has been happening with the colt we got from this experience. Be on the lookout for the next parts to this story to come!
