Hi, I'm Teri Carter of Saddlebrook Stables in Castle Hayne, North Carolina. And today I'm going to talk to you about how to select a good appaloosa breeder. First of all you need to decide what you would like your appaloosa to do. Whether is be jumping, western pleasure, roping or even racing, you need to find a breeder that's geared towards those types of disciplines. Then the next step you need to take is you need to research the sire that you're interested in. The Appaloosa Journal is a good way to look up your sire's record and see how his offspring are doing in their particular category. Also, if you would like a particular color configuration on your appaloosa, it's wise to make sure that the stallion that you're selecting is a producer of color. So remember, you need to make sure that you research the stallion and his disciplines, what he has achieved, what his offspring have achieved and the type of color configuration or if even he throws any color at all, before you breed or select your appaloosa.
