    I would just call her a grade and then see if anyone will give you a COP for the offspring. But the sire has to be approved with the registry of choice. But COP is probably the same cache as AWS or...

    Although I agree with the premise of the article, it also stuck me as lacking objective information. It was mainly an opinion piece, and while I think it is great that it opens the subject up for...

    I believe Laurie's filly is 3 this year?
    And this thread is 2 years old. For perspective, GF farms was posting RW video's 7 years ago now.

    I do not know how success is determined in Hunters as...

    She does have a RW foal/mare that she is very fond of. And I also understand the reason why people might continue to use him.
    I am glad these threads exist but honestly they get really self...

    The horse was made to figure things out in a very short time, not the way I would want my horses done but not the end of the world or abusive.
    I have seen many people riding horses that still have...

    This is the important part. If you get her approved for breeding with another registry, her foals will have those papers.
    If she is an amazing mare and your going to breed, I suggest you either...

    Quote from Dr. Moller, "Any horse can make it to 4th level, might not have great scores but it can be there."

    And FEI starts with four year old classes. So making it to FEI does not require UL...

    There is online preview of the horses and over the phone bidding. You can probably throw in your maximum bid before the auction starts.

    Couple for the OP:...

    I'm not for casual breeding but I also fail to see how these horses are an example of why not to breed. Lots of Wb foals go for over 10k.

    Donnerhall -Pik cross is a very desirable nick and...

    I don't know of any PMU operations that just kept their herds to breed foals for sale. Breeding for meat horses is legal in Canada so if they wanted to make money, that would be the way to go, sell a...

    Pedigree for what?
    Racing? Jumping? Dressage? Eventing?

    FWIW, the majority of Tb's are bred for racing, so even if there is some sport horse Tb's in the pedigree, there are also many horses that...

    I think without offspring on the ground, you are hard pressed to have specific expectation. Like breeding to any young stallion, you hope that he throws some amazing offspring and you are ahead of...

    Hmm. This person has a horse that is part draft, which the disease is very common in, like 2/3's of the population but assumes it is the Wb side?
    Many people here either call a draft cross a WB or...

    I have a young mare that is very sweet but is very dominant, which is a trait I enjoy and admire. She needs constant reminder of the boundaries but in a way that allows her her dignity. She is very...

    It is a number that is thrown around a lot on COTH. It was brought up because we were speaking of numbers. I doubt it has much relavence in general though as it doesn't tell what quality horses get...

    I don't know about 3000 but he was available frozen also. This would make it hard for the owners to track all the info. As people noted, he bred mainly Oldenburg mares.
    Another way to look at is,...

    Thanks Alex. I think they are very good horses and may end up in the pedigree of many top horses down the line. If they had a short coming as a rule, what would it be? What would you want to correct...

    178 offspring seems like a very small number for a European stallion that is of that quality. He would have been 15(?) when he come over? That would be 11 breeding's a year, which doesn't seem right....

    This was on a thread a while back but since it has come up again. Foals are not able to process cellulose, so that is most of the material in hay and grasses. They eat it but do not get much out of...
