    Were you happy with the results? I see he was a 1965 model, so obviously both he & any sons he produced are long gone.

    That was the major reason I bred to Werigo; he was one of the last sons of...

    Flawless, Fashion Maker & Follow Me are all Furstenball sons o/o mares with Donnerhall as a grandsire. All are 31+% DH genetically.

    This also makes an interesting point about the use of "modern,...

    I do find it ironic that even though our society is saturated with twerking, booty-shaking and sexual innuendo EVERYWHERE, people get so freaked out over frank discussions on horse/dog/etc...

    I was collecting my stallion at home (I have a breeding mount); the vet (a woman) was handling the stallion, I was handling the AV & the vet's assistant (also female) was handling the jump mare.

    Exactly! I would LOVE a DeNiro foal (see my thread about wanting a stallion w/lots of Donnerhall), but I see no sense in tossing my $$ away. I already have shown I have HORRID luck when it come to...

    I did breed to him; I loved his pedigree, thought he would be a great cross with that particular mare and (at the time) he was affordable. Considering the mare didn't get pregnant in 2 tries & his...

    There are TBs & then there are TBs. If you are talking about a TB bred for sport (like A Fine Romance & his babies), they are bred for soundness as well.

    But racing TBs are NOT generally bred for...

    Very often this is not true. In THEORY each generation should be better than the last, but in PRACTICE this is very, VERY often not the case. And there is going to be a certain level when the "ideal"...

    And again, I have to say "WHY?" Why the rush to breed to unproven stallions? Especially since they are often not much cheaper than the proven one.

    Maybe Fannie Mae was right in her post on another...

    Couldn't agree more. And consider than many of the stallions at the licensing aren't even 3 yrs old yet.

    And I still maintain (regarding TBs) that one of the major reason the Triple Crown has been...

    Well, I think Hell just froze over, because I actually agree with most of what Wendy says :winkgrin:

    At 8 wks he should have had at least 2 of his vaccines already, plus immunity from his dam. I...

    Don't bow too low...these guys are often wrong (and how come there aren't any women on these licensing committees?)!

    If you look at the results of the stallion testings, for example, many MANY...

    Lovely to hear you are impressed with the Bask in the pedigree. So many people turn up their noses at "Arab"...not realizing that Bask was not only a multiple winner in performance (driving, saddle...

    Personally it sounds like seizures to me. Seizures don't always have to be extreme and they can present in the exact way you describe.

    I would have the staff at UC Davis completely explore the...

    It is most definitely a temperament issue, as in "genetic."

    Just like some people are shy, so are some dogs...however it is NOT a trait that should be bred on. Those "shy" dogs can so easily turn...

    Well, would you believe when I first started Americans weren't as "into" Florestan has they have been the last 7-8 yrs. But I do agree with you that he is an amazing contributor to German dressage...

    Thanks, I'll check him out! If he was approved & testing in Germany I don't really care who he is approved by now.

    Yes, but when they took a risk on you as a musician, innocent, helpless critter (ie broodmares) weren't also taking that risk on you as well.

    When we galloped race horses, that is the way we got off (because it's the ONLY way to dismount when your stirrups are jacked up high)...it's not "new" or European.

    However it IS "English". I took...

    Yes, I thought of Qredit exactly because of the Dream of Glory connection. But I'm not as impressed with Quaterback as some are (to each their own); Qredit seems to be more Quaterback than...
