    Yes - When we ran the story in The Oldenburg Horse magazine, I remember thinking how strange it was that there hadn't been any coverage by the national publications.

    USEF has not been at all...

    That's a great point, Alexandra. Young horse specialists and top GP competitors need different skillsets, and while it is nice for both types to be able to do EVERYTHING, it is not really necessary...

    Once again Laurie has hit the nail on the head. The biggest lament from breeders the past few years is that there isn’t a good system for getting our top riders to consider buying in this country....

    I agree that there are others who might have been good choices (Volker Bromann, Lisa Wilcox, Hilda Gurney, Jan Brons, Jim Koford, and Elly Schobel are a few others who come to mind). It is entirely...

    Considering Hassler's tremendous interest and experience in the development of young horses, his connections with top young horse specialists in Germany and Holland, and his power and influence with...

    Ilona, I think most of us on these forums realize that there are huge and very successful auctions for other breeds. But, as you said - we don't yet have a marketplace that could support those types...

    The new name for the WEG was unveiled in Dec. There is a blurb at http://www.area1usea.org/2005-FEI-KY.htm - see the 3rd to the last paragraph in the article.

    Regarding auctions - many very good...

    Yeah, Pat! That is wonderful news! I am so glad to hear that Rhapsody is doing better and that the hospital is working with you on the other issues.

    Sorry I'm a bit tardy with my congratulations,...

    Again - I have no idea who Frank Dreyfus is, and only a slight suspicion about ASager. And don't you and your husband have better things to do than spend all your time on the Internet trying to run...

    So sorry to hear this, Pat. I am jingling away and sending prayers for your girl.

    Tee-hee, yes, I figured out last week who Big Dawg is. And yes, BD - how ARE the big dogs?

    I've got a 2003 model in Germany that stands a hair under 16.1. He went through the Oldenburg stallion selections last fall (wasn't selected and is now a gelding), so he has been handled a lot, is...

    My sources within Germany told me several years ago that RPS has been struggling financially for quite a while now, and that it has been on the verge of bankruptcy several times. There have even been...

    Although it may seem to some folks that there isn't enough of a market for both types of breeders in N.A., I don't know how in the world we can expect to compete with Europe in producing top...

    A friend is planning to breed her premium Oldenburg mare by Alabaster/Contender to Sure Hit. The mare had a premium filly this year by Sandro Hit, and she is in foal to Don Schufro for 2006.

    I am seriously contemplating breeding my 5 y/o Feiner Stern mare in 2006, but I can't decide whether to breed her for hunters or dressage. She showed all this year as a hunter, with pretty good...

    Alexandra, your point is well taken that very few - if any - German breeders are going to use a N.A. based stallion. Nor are very many - if any - N.A. stallions going to be exported to Germany to...

    Ok, Gwen, thanks for the correction. That makes a lot more sense! I couldn't for the life of me figure out why RPSI was holding a 30 DT with only 7 stallions if the rules required at least 14...

    EXACTLY. And I cannot blame Gwen for her concern. Why should she (and other German stallion owners) have to make sure to send their boys to 30 DTs with at least 14 stallions, when N.A. stallion...

    Gwen, yes, thanks. I know about the discussions in Germany to change the requirements, and I think they are definitely needed. It is nuts to push these barely 3 y/o stallions to get them ready for a...

    Marieke, thanks for this report. I am sorry to hear that Versace was injured, but it is good that they recognized the problem and advised pulling him. Don't worry - his time will come.
