    I have a 2004 Andalusian/TB mare, by Botijo M out of a Restivo mare. She is gorgeous: she got the positive attributes of both breeds. She is refined like a TB without a lot of knee action; ride her...

    I know nothing about the competition at the Friesian shows, but I have been to the big regional and national Andalusian and Lusitano shows. It's not too hard to be National Champion when there are...

    Elles, I'm not sure what you're trying to prove: these pedigrees have TB in the second generation, right where many breeders would like to see it. Not only are these not full TBs, they're not even F1...

    I would get a good vet to confirm a diagnosis. Loose stifles and stringhalt are not the same thing; I don't know as much about the former, but the latter is neurological and only in extreme cases is...

    There was a daughter of his (Princess de Taute) eventing in Ontario/Quebec a few years ago with a young rider who appeared to have mostly produced her himself. The mare got up to Intermediate; not...

    It's interesting to hear the different responses/opinions offered. My policy has always been: if the horse has shoes and it's competing on grass, it has studs. Then again, I tend not to shoe my...

    This may seem like splitting hairs but I feel the need to point out that La Biosthetique Sam is actually registered Baden-Wurttemburg, not Hanoverian. He is an exceptional horse, so I want to be sure...

    Yes, fair enough, Bayhawk. My mare has a weak top line and definitely needs improvement there; I understand that Connor would not be the best choice as he likely would not add the improvement in the...

    Try contacting RyTimMick; he had a very nice Connor colt a year or two ago.

    I loved the look of the Connors I saw in Holstein. I would love to breed to him but I've been told he needs a mare with...

    [/QUOTE]

    You're right, this is off topic. My point was not, "look at me, I'm so impressive, I'm a doctoral student". I absolutely enter every argument with skepticism and a critical mind. That is...

    Yeah, I would still disagree. When I stood next to him last year I was very surprised at how modern and leggy he is; I was not expecting that. That being said, his bloodlines don't scream uber modern...

    I don't know much about what Cicero has produced but he was a full brother to the fantastic event sire, Cavalier Royale, who sired countless 4* event horses (Ben Along Time, Imperial Cavalier, Call...

    I would definitely not consider either Freestyle or Sir Wanabi to be old style. When you stand next to Freestyle he looks like he is about 90% legs; he is definitely a modernizing stallion. Wanabi...

    I am surprised that some have found Cabardino to not refine. I was at W. Charlot last May and discussed him and what he has produced with Christine Walch: they purchased him as a stallion to...

    Where did you see this? I know he is leased out to a rider for the show season but I had not heard anything about him being for sale. I hope he is not, since I am breeding a mare to him this year!

    TKR, I assume your snarky comment was directed at me.

    Not that it's any of your business, but I have been to Germany and have seen the type of horses they are producing in Holstein. Many of the...

    I don't think anyone is disputing that there are exceptional TBs out there. This discussion, however (as I see it, anyway), is about BREEDING top show jumpers. It is on the BREEDING forum, not the...

    I have to agree with this. There is no shame in breeding for the amateur market, but if you are willing to breed to any mare whose owner writes you a cheque, you are going to have to accept criticism...

    Agree with what other posters have said: comparing Guaranteed Gold to the stallion prospect in question is not a fair comparison. Regardless of his quality as a stallion, let's be honest: mare owners...

    This argument is a bit old, but I will wade back in anyway. TC, I think you are getting defensive and missing the point. Two of the examples you gave are from thirty plus years ago, while the third...

    I think it depends on how you define "jump" and what you're breeding for. TBs certainly dominate the pedigrees of top level eventers, but there is a big difference between the jump required for an...

    One of my first horses was an Appendix gelding bred around the corner from me. He ended up being a solid Intermediate horse! I got him as a green-broke 6 year old when I was 17 (without much of a...

    Interesting, I did not find Qredit that big when I saw him at Hilltop (and I am an eventer so I don't like BIG). I really liked his type. Granted, that was 2 years ago; he was only a four year old so...
