I always say breed the best you can comfortably afford. Laurie is right.
Me three! Persiflage has really got it all. LOVE this for an eventing sire. A real breath of fresh air.
As an ex-breeder of eventers I have an in-built interest in event breeding. I'm not sure I'm...
Half pass - I feel for you! :) This is much the same scenario that I had.
I strongly feel that under these circumstances your children come first (my husband and I are were no spring chickens...
My life did a complete 180. I thought I'd be running about the farm with the little one strapped to me, and riding while he slept arena-side. Unfortunately I had difficult and painful pregnancies...
God Mo, that makes me tired just looking at it! :)
Zebraloosa is rather a lovely shape as well as being just plain ol' cute. Thanks for the updates
I didn't think to look at the collection date, sorry. I am possibly about to use my 3rd dose this week - I'll check for you then.
I used 1 dose (3 straws) each on 2 mares, one young, one elderly (19) and got 2 pregnancies. 60% motility under the scope. I am happy! :)
Is it just me or does he seem bigger in front than behind? Impressive front end/neck etc but his hindquarters seem less so. Leaving out how this may/may not affect movement/ability, it is just...
Def palomino! :)
Daventry - from a newby posting admiring comments about someone's horses.
I have seen a small handful of Furstenball offspring in the flesh from a range of Hanoverian mares. NONE have lax pasterns. All seem to be tall and elegant, have really lovely walks, and good...
Here in NZ Grosvenor, Westminster and older Drums of Time are also prevalent but I don't know of a database here for stallion rankings.
It's hard to tell - on one hand it looks a bit humpy for sure, but if the back were longer it probably wouldn't look that way. The loin looks strong and muscled, the hip length is exceptional.
Go for it! Post away...
My Hanoveian mare had a Sandreo foal a few years back. He is now 4, under saddle and going nicely. He is huge, tall and wide. 17.2ish from a 16.2hh solid mare. He's quite fine in the limb but massive...
I have two mares newly in foal to him. Both very different types so we'll see what I get. LOVE this stallion! :)
Awww what a cutie. Funny, without the back story this just looks like any other perfectly healthy newborn.
I'm glad you didn't give up. Looks like she's on the mend now.
Coth is EXCELLENT at...
I have known little ones (15.2-3ish) and bigger ones (16.1-2ish) but none that were real giants. I'm sure others have seen more than me.
When you've got through this we'd all love to see some pics of the ''cute little bugger'' ! :)
It obviously caught you unexpectedly. How early is the foal?
You are clearly very talented my dear!
One thing that bothers me is the bit. It looks to be hanging in his mouth and I just want to tighten his bridle up a hole or two! :)
Some confo shots would help here :)
Ya can't come on here with news of a lovely outcome without pictures! :)
You're in Australia? The showing conventions there (and in NZ too) are a bit different than the US.
In Australasia it is usual to have a bit on a yearling (but not mandatory). The bridle is brown...
