    Before importing mares and having full Wb mares was common, many people used Tb mares with Wb stallions and that is the reason we were not able to compete for years with the Europeans. Ironically,...

    Will she be grazing this summer? That should work to balance out the muscle issue if there is no other reason for it.

    620,000 euro
    These are business people, not hobby breeders. As stated above, look how many breeding's Tolegro got in his first year. What if he got 2000 breeding's world wide? Even 1000 or 500. That...

    I agree.

    A pure Tb sport registry would be great for the horses and the sport of eventing.

    Competing PSG at 5?
    The 6 year old FEI test is only equivalent to about Third level.

    Why don't you contact the local dressage clubs/associations and ask them if they would be willing to host?
    Often clinicians are happy to try and add riders and they have already come a long ways. ...

    Anytime, anyplace you buy a horse there is a chance you will run into a "horse trader". Even sellers can have issues with middle men taking unknown commission.

    No, he doesn't.
    I own Traks and have bred. And horses with 50% Tb, the ones I feed everyday and ride. The truth is that horse doesn't have good movement compared to a well bred Wb. And I wouldn't...

    If you have a goal of producing purple, you mix blue and red. Once you have purple, you do not keep adding red. Only if you have some paint that is still a bit on the blue side do you need the red. ...
