    Lets talk Grobs...

    We are building our derby field this year and I was think about putting in a grob as that would be a great source of dirt for use in our bank complex. My biggest concern is standing water in the...

    There are far more warmbloods at that level than Tb. But yes, you are correct that not many make it to 1.60m. And that is exactly why you would want to stack the deck in your favor when selecting...

    There are obviously some thoroughbred lines that could be used in modern breeding (if you so choose) but those are few and far between. That is the point. The holsteiner verband is allowing breeders...

    [QUOTE=skydy;8065236]It is interesting (and for breeders, absolutely imperative) to study horses from "decades and decades" ago. Some WB breeders spend a great deal of time doing just that. (I refer...

    Brilliant Invader has one maybe two direct offspring (F1) currently competing. Everything else is F2 or further down, which is the point in using tb blood in breeding sport horsess.

    The first was born in 1991, out of an ISH mare by a Tb born in 1968. The second (also born in 1991) was out of a tb mare also born in '68. So unless you have some tbs hanging around the breeding shed...

    They were generally larger framed with bigger bone. They tended to be a bit more uphill and had better technique over the fence. I believe these were predominantly ottb (as are the vast majority)....

    In two of those examples, the tb breeding stock was from the 60s and the other from 1980. While those are closer to being relevant, they still aren't actually relevant. I personally think Tbs have...

    I'm sorry if I missed something, but why are horses from decades and decades ago being posted as examples? Both our modern warmbloods and our modern thoroughbreds look/move differently than those of...
