    I would look for stallions with Voltaire or Voltaire/Nurzeus in the damline.

    Perhaps if Equine Canada backpedals far enough, they will reach the point where they should have started from in the first place. :)

    From what I have read, Eric objected that a) a rule (which is, let's face it, largely meant to prohibit the use of irritants that cause a horse to overjump) had been misapplied and b) there was no...

    We had a dummy foal a few years ago. He spent 10 days in the veterinary hospital, where he was on 24-hour foal watch so that they could lift him up every couple hours to nurse as he was completely...

    I agree. One of the spookiest fillies I ever produced has just foaled out a totally brave, in-your-face colt. His dam was so spooky when she was born that we couldn't get near her for quite some...

    I think Apiro is an excellent choice for a tb mare, as he tends to add size and bone from what I have seen.

    As a stallion owner, I am often amazed that mare owners will choose an overseas stallion based on no more than a short bio, some photos, a video, and some hype. Even information such as breeding...

    Jingles for your little guy. Hang in there! We had a dummy foal a few years ago. He was such a mess, there wasn't one thing that wasn't wrong with him. The vets didn't give us much hope for his...

    Sorry, by bling I meant white on the horse - high whites on the legs and face markings mostly, not so much paints which I think is a different category.

    LOL, JB! :D

    I must admit I was a bit thrown by a recent ad I saw, placed by someone looking for their next hunter prospect. The ad stated that breeding and pedigree were unimportant, but that...

    Just curious to hear this from a hunter rider/competitor perspective - how important is "bling" when you are shopping for your next hunter? Does it make a difference in placing, or is it just a...

    My progressive lenses are made by Nikon - yeah, the camera people - and evidently they're digital. I don't have that same far/near blurriness as I did with my old lenses.

    I know one local breeder who consistently crosses her jumper bred mares with dressage stallions for the hunter market. Personally, I thought that trend had passed? On the other hand, is there any...
  20. Bling - do you factor it into your hunter breeding program?

    So for those breeding for the hunter market, how highly do you factor in "bling" in making your stallion choices? Do you find that bling makes the difference between a sale and no sale of the hunter...

    Actually, the first horse I bred was out of a big-boned, solid tb mare who retired sound from racing at the age of 7 and then went on to event. I still have her...
