    I have a Belissimo M mare out of my Freestyle/Wolkenstein II mare. I just adore this mare! Her movement was somewhat underwhelming as a foal and she was not a premium foal, but holy smokes has she...

    Pablo

    Can anyone tell me what his offspring are like, particularly in the temperament department? I am looking at one as a dressage prospect. My only other experience with a Pablo baby was a horse who was...

    Love, love, love my Regal saddles. I have one that was custom made for me and my horse around 10 years ago. Since then it has been refit by Kevin to several different horses. It's still in fantastic...

    A lady I used to ride with had a beautiful imported Roman Nature gelding (sorry, don't know the damline). He is a FREAKISH fancy mover, so much suspension it's incredible. He was very hot though and...
  5. If you love the result of a particular cross, do you repeat it or experiment?

    I am breeding once every several years. My intention is not to sell, but to produce nice dressage horses for myself, so that I always have another nice youngster coming down the pipeline. Although,...

    Breitling W

    Has anyone one here tried his frozen semen? Does it work?

    I vaguely remember a Dutch stallion named Charon, but this must have been 15-20 years back and I think he stould in BC. Is that the stallion you are talking about?

    Love, love, love Belissimo M! As with all stallions, having the right mare is important. I have a 2000 model out of my Freestyle/Wolkenstein II mare. Fortuna is an improvement over her dam in...

    Rock Forever

    Has anyone used his frozen semen? Any pregnancies?
  11. Am I nuts to be thinking of putting drywall in my tack room?

    Hubby is getting ready to finish the tack rooms in my new barn. We have a 12 x 26 foot room which will double as a viewing lounge and boarder's tack room and a 12 x 12 space (with 5 x 5 chunk taken...
  12. How much sand for arena footing?

    The finishing touches are being put on my indoor arena as we speak. I am having a lot of discussions with my excavation/footing guy about how many inches of sand should go on top of the base. The...

    That's really surprising. I've been to 3 GOV inspections (2 at Dreamscape in BC and 1 at Rideauwood in Ottawa) and the inspectors always spent quite a bit of time on each horse. Walk a large triange,...

    I don't understand why people think that breaking a youngster is a race. I've broken a fair number of youngsters in my life and I've never had one show this much fear or resistance. Too much too fast.

    Agreed. Not having a fancy enough horse is a first world problem for sure! Doesn't mean I can't long for that underwater treadmill though!

    Yes, there is a 2x6 pressure treated board at the bottom, but its hovering about 4 inches above the base. I can see that you might want a little space in case the ground heaves with the frost, but 4...

    It's a neat video and obviously she is incredibly hard working and talented, but I have to say that video left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. That's nice that she's in the pursuit of perfection....
  18. kickboard building question-need answers quick!

    My contractor has started framing in the kickboards for my indoor arena. Right now the compacted base of limestone screenings is in. I am told that the next step is to put in the kickboards and then...

    Agree completely. If you are doing frozen, you need to be willing to spend a LOT of money in vet fees.

    I have been to a number of GOV inspections and frankly I think they whole premium thing is silly. I don't see much of a correlation between premium foals and what they look like as adults. They...

    A few questions for the original poster . . .
    1)are you sure foals from this mare can get VB papers even when she's bred to an approved Dutch stallion? This mare is by Odilon, who is NOT approved...

    I am sorry but there is nothing about this horse that makes me think he would be a good candidate for dressage. He looks sickle hocked, his neck is tied in very low. It also looks like there is...

    Very well said. I couldn't agree more. Save the money you would have spent on board and training for a few months and soon you will have enough saved up to buy a horse suitable for the job.
