We are beyond excited to have Grindstone move to the farm where I work. Such exciting news for the PNW! :D

I think all of his good sperm went bye bye when he covered Dear Birdie circa June 2000. ;)

Our latest donated horse from Delaware Park is a Grindstone son. Here is his pedigree- http://www.pedigreequery.com/sea+flip

Anybody know about this cross in terms of sporthorse pedigree? I am a fan of Unbridled and Peaks and Valley in terms of eventing.

The Le Fabuleux/Blushing Groom cross should be dynamite for eventing. Thats Wild Risk doubled top and bottom and sex balanced and you can't do any better than that.

Many years ago I bought a horse from the Roots. Dr Root was sending a load of young TB's that had broke down racing or in training to the local auction in Woodburn. (They lived outside of Estacada then). Cookie loved one of the filly's and wanted her to find a home. Their farrier was also mine and he told me about the filly. I went to see her and fell in love. I will always remember that filly as the best horse I have ever owned. And I'm glad the owners wife saw how special she was and made the effort to place her, rather than shipping her off to the kill buyers. Yes, she most likely would have went for meat, because like all the others, she was injured.

I read the article and am glad to see Overbroook say that Grindstone will return to them when he's ready for retirement.
