    I'm in Australia too but I'm going to take a guess that you're not in Victoria. Which means you don't have HRCAV so you're having to compete EA.

    That sucks! The other states need HRCAV so that you...

    Lucky duck! I'm spitting that I missed it due to uni exams, I would have loved to see Carl and have a weekend in Sydney to do so!

    I know someone who has one out of a Furst Hienrich mare ... at 18 months the filly was 17hh so something to be aware of, this particular breeding turned out a foal that is huge.

    I didn't know that Canadians said 'grey' and 'colour' the same as UK and Australian English!

    I quite like him!

    Too young really to make an assessment, I would love to see him under saddle down the track. Not all stallions make fancy youngsters!

    Exactly, if you don't want to use him *shrugs* don't use him, but why does it matter to you if other people do or what the quality of their foals is? Get over it.
