Of course the major factor in determining the conformation, temperament, and gait was the selection of our stallion, Glen Hope Gold Rush and the specially selected mares. My selection criteria were very important, in what I was looking for in the sire and dam. I wanted (and got) the conformation from The Pusher bloodlines, and Ebony Masterpiece, Another Masterpiece, Midnight Sun, Sun’s Delight D, Handshaker, and Ebony’s Senator blood, to name a few.

On Big View Walking Horses Farm the mares are as important as the stallion, although most people always look to the stallion as the primary part of their breeding program.  I look for the same thing in my mares that I look for in my stallion:    

1.  Conformation – the long beautiful neck and good body length.

Size – 15.3 hands or larger.

3.  Temperament – Must be calm, sane, trusting quality.
4.  Gait – Most important is the ability to slow walk, fast walk, and canter.
5.  Barefoot history is a plus; mares must have no history of training with action devices or weighted or padded shoes.
6.  Pedigree – This is where you get all of the above, because in the mare and stallion runs the blood of their ancestors.  This is why I believe the mare is just as important as the stallion. For the natural, barefoot, the-day-they-get-here-walking performance and look as described above I search their pedigrees for the Pusher bloodlines, as well as Ebony Masterpiece, Midnight Sun, Sun’s Delight D, The Handshaker lines Another Masterpiece and Ebony’s Senator to name a few.

We are very proud of our mares and treat them as royal as any of their ancestors, because they are carrying on the bloodlines.  We hope you find just what you are looking for here at Big View Walking Horses Farm.  Visit often.  You are always welcome.
