    Interestingly, while this used to be the norm, I've noticed that it has become increasingly LESS common at events in our area over the last few years. Many times in recent years I have galloped...

    Agree with stoicfish (and Kyzteke - similar philosophy). I have one of these mares myself: big tank of a mare, big head, big ears, a bit clunky looking. Her first offspring was a licensed stallion;...

    Looking forward to seeing this foal, JER! Another one to add to your fabulous collection! :D

    In a pinch, for an orphan foal we cut up an old sheepskin pad and fashioned a few straps to hold it on....

    Is this another Superstar foal, JER??

    Ours are blanketed - we've even been double blanketing this winter - but they live out (with shelters). We've had plenty of nights this winter in the -30s (C)...

    Our two nine-month old Hanoverian foals are currently in 60" foal blankets.

    Out of curiousity, if you do not buy blankets measured in inches, what is the metric used for blankets you have...

    I have a lovely 2014 colt who has one eye with a white sclera. He is not for sale, but I have wondered whether this would affect interest in him if he does come up for sale down the road. I realized,...

    Are you looking to produce a high level dressage prospect? If so, I think most would advise against breeding to a draft - I have nothing against them, I have seen some decent draft crosses, but the...

    crosscreeksh, I would be interested to know what sort of negative experiences and/or research has led you to be so adamantly against having a single foal?

    I've had foals both as singles and...

    Not disagreeing with you (in general), viney, but 4* stadium is 1.30 m and cross country is up to 1.20 m for fixed obstacles, with brush above the fixed part of the obstacle reaching a maximum height...

    Is your guy registered with Selle Francais? Is he registered with a different registry like RPSI? If not, you can pick whichever naming convention you'd like. :)

    Pik L! Competed through Grand Prix himself and produced numerous FEI horses, including his stallion son, Pikko del Cerro who is currently competing Grand Prix.

    Don Principe has competed at Grand...

    This also surprised me (but then I am biased because I have a Coconut Grove baby ;) ). I suppose in the absence of either an eventing record of his own or evidence of successfully eventing progeny...

    I have definitely considered Checkmate, he might work well with this mare if I wanted to go the hunter route. I have seen him several times in person, including at the 70 day test, and I really like...

    :( Sadly, I think you are right, stoicfish - which really is a shame, considering he is likely a more consistent producer of rideable upper level horses than many more fashionable stallions.

    I take it Emerald is only available by frozen in the U.S.?

    I believe he is back at Horses Unlimited in New Mexico, or at least this is what is indicated in the SSAs Pik L is listed in. The HU website doesn't seem to have been updated much recently, though,...

    Thanks for all the suggestions (so far)!

    I'm curious as to why more don't breed to Pik L? He seems like he might fit the bill. Proven performance - showed up to Grand Prix in the U.S. and Europe...

    I'm not sure whether this rule has been or will be implemented in Canada, but there is a BNR and coach (former member of the Canadian team) who is known for the flock of JRTs that follow her...

    This was my thought as well. Perhaps the high ratings are meant to be a deterrent to the inexperienced horseperson (who might be tempted to purchase him because of the low price).

    I love the idea of Halimey, although his conformation shot makes him look rather long-backed and short-legged. He doesn't appear this way when he moves in his videos - perhaps just an...
