Hi!

As title states, I'm re-entering the barrel world after about seven years off due to university, etc. I now live on a ranch and have the time and tools to buy a prospect and put my energy into barrel racing again.

I have two prospects picked out and I'm not sure what lines would be my best pick as I can only go off of papers and confirmation at this point (They are still very young!)

 

1.) Corona Cartel GRANDSON and dam is Paddy's Irish Whiskey bred. He is pretty lanky right now and not overly excited about his confirmation. I should add that his dam's mother was by "Don't Skip this Chip" Which is western pleasure bred. So he's quite the mix?

 

2.) Double bred Frenchman's Guy granddaughter (dam on sires side was Fire Water Flit bred). On the bottom is Casady Casanova. 

 

I like the looks of the filly better. As much as I want a pure barrel prospect it would be important to me that this horse can be ridden outside the arena and atleast have a rope swung off of them.. I am not about hot headed horses and I'm a VERY mellow personality so in the past I do very well with high strung horses... I've just been out of the industry for too long now. 

 

Just want to see if anyone has any advice or opinions!!! Thank you :)

I love the both that you listed.. But I like the first one but this is without seeing pictures of him, I want a good mind and confirmation on a horse, I like the fact that hes a he, LOL. 

But you need to pick what suits you best.. Since you like the filly better go with her. Fire Water Flit sure can put class in a horse.

I've got a FWF mare and a FG filly and LOVE them both. Excellent minded, kind, quick learner, a touch of mare sass lol but no silliness. I would go with the filly. I have rode a couple Paddy horses and LOVED them as well (they're also equally great minded and kind) but honestly if you like the filly better and want to run barrels and I'd go with her. 

Edited to add you can do it all on any good minded horse. They don't have to be just a barrel horse.

Hi!! Sorry for the delay! I managed to get some pics and oh my they really don't do much for him ??

im a bit hesitant on posting his full body LOL he is SO bum high right now and he's got the winter woolies so he looks horrendous. Gotta love living in northern Canada haha these poor horses. But his eyes. He is such a sweetheart. I swear he looked good in the summer! And he still has so much growing to do.

I'm a bit worried of angular limb? He stands funny sometimes but someone else told me he'll grow out of it once his chest expands. But I've limited his exercise for now. His legs look fine to me and other times it's iffy. So fingers crossed he gets a chance! 

do you have any recommendations for good feed for a coming yearling? He's 8 months right now. He came from a ranch so not sure what his situation was but he's on very high quality hay now!

So his sire is coronas leaving you by corona cartel and his dam is out of a zips chocolate skip mare and her sire is by paddy's Irish whiskey. I'm very excited to see how he grows and what he turns into! High hopes for the barrel pen but we'll see! He's such a good little dude. Literally NOTHING phases him ??

Awww hes got a really kind eye, and living in Canada I can see why hes so woolly, lol.. I love babys they are so much fun.. hes going to look like a different horse once hes about 18 months old. I wonder how tall his mama is, I know thoses Zips Chocolate Chips off spring can get pretty tall..

On feed: Bluebonnet is a great brand if you can get it in Canada.. if you do have it there you need to talk to Jyme Nichols she is the director of nutrition at Bluebonnet and she can help you out.

His eyes are so kind. I'm very happy with him and I'll use him for whatever he excels at it all goes well and he stays sound while growing! 

that filly I was debating on actually turned up with a fetlock injury! Go figure hey. So it was meant to be. 

he's apparently supposed to finish around 15.1hh I believe his mom was around 15.1 as well. So we'll see! 

I am having a BLAST with him! So easy so far. However I'm not hitting it off with the other filly I have here (she's gonna be started undersaddle this summer). Gorgeous and well bred too but she's got an attitude. I might be a gelding person after all ????‍?? I'm getting older now - I like easy. hahaha. 

thanks for info on feed! I'll look into it :
