    As said before, Holstein, way back, lamented the loss of TB outcross candidates with the advent of Northern Dancer. TB's are used for refinement and speed and a generational weaving in the...

    Catsdorule, how long do you think it took the WB breeders to get rid of their throwbacks? It takes persistence, patience, and generations to set type.

    Bayhawk, if the right TB cannot be found, what are they looking for in other breeds that might work?

    What about a Shagya cross? Wasn't Ramzes a TB with Shagya? Would they have to work with a...

    I posted to give an example of what can happen when you use a TB mare bred to race, not for sport. How many times and at what expense was I to repeat a breeding that went back and pulled up the Mr....

    Sigh….there are two arguments on this thread, really. The use of TB’s in the PAST, and their use now in the jumper ranks. No one is saying that Holstein, for example, didn’t make use of TB’s in the...

    “You wouldn't know if she was a jump killer until you bred with her and her daughters .”

    This, exactly, is why Holstein is ahead in breeding- they have had the mare lines for...

    Holsteiners have been top jumping horses for quite a while now. With PRUDENT use of TB sires, and certain TB sire lines, they refined the heavier type- but the mother line is Holteiner.

    Here are some abbreviated articles that have some history of the Holsteiner, one of them linked above, I believe. I think as a history lesson on how a breed develops and transforms it’s a good,...

    Cicero did not die from a quarter crack. It was a an accident, I believe, that caused a break in the femur (?) bone in the hind leg above the hock. They tried very hard to save him.

    Thanks Laurierace, for the pictures. I’d really like the impressions of those that were there, because it was hard to tell via NBC just what I thought I was seeing. Did he indeed come out of this...

  12. Filters

    http://www.brighthub.com/electronics/cameras-camcorders/articles/76765.aspx

    This has some short explanations.

    Opinions vary on the use of UV filters and their effect or not on picture quality. ...
  13. DX and Full Frame

    Full Frame cameras generally are pretty expensive. The DX is a smaller frame. Best to look up the differences elsewhere for explanation but the full frame is like a 35mm and the DX smaller. ...
  14. Apeture mode/shutter priority, etc.

    As ccoronios stated, for low light situations, you'll want a faster lens, ie., one with a lower f stop setting, like a 2.8f, that lets in more light. But those lens are pretty expensive.

    I'd...

    Most has been covered but I'll add another warning- is it a college town?
    Especially in smaller communities, this can be an issue. Our experience has been with renting, but the units were a...

    I thinks some of us are sort of pedigree and history geeks.

    I think the people who might care are those looking to breed either TB's for sport or mares for WB crosses. But it's really mostly...

    Linny, it was Bay Ronald's son, Dark Ronald, who was brought to Germany. But, if I read correctly, Bay Ronald did spend time in France, so perhaps another base for his blood to come through.

    :no: Ooops, I did it again.

    I think Linny had a good point. Teddy was unable to get a sire line that lasted, whereas Dark Ronald seemed to have accomplished that- in two venues.

    Actually, there is more than just the Bay Ronald through Hampton. Hampton was by Lord Clifton, who was by Newminster. Newminster sired Hermit, which you see a bit too.

    For example, the TB Cottage Son goes back to Dark Ronald and has another cross of Hampton in the dam line, plus two crosses to Rock Sand.
