Stoicfish, you miss my point. I'm certainly not advocating for throwing caution to the wind and breeding a great mare willy-nilly to any stallion. I'm building on the point that many, many people...
Also, if you aren't comfortable using newly-licensed stallions, don't use them -- simple as that -- but don't lament those of us who do. If the mares are good enough, the stallion is...
In your shoes, I'd focus on competition results and skip the SPT, for all the reasons Siegi listed. I'd also make sure he was bred to some very good mares his first couple of seasons.
I used to live in CT and would recommend hauling to Dr Ann Schmidt in Dudley, MA.
:no: Yup, too bad. If this is how difficult it is to get information, I can only imagine how difficult it would be to get semen.
I've found you can get pertinent video and photos, but it requires a series of emails. Nothing is organized on a website, at least not yet. I began to feel like I was pestering the stallion owner...
How is Furstenball's frozen?
Great post and so true, Alexandra!
I would also check out Triad Farm.
Bobby Murray is an excellent handler who may well be there. He is tall and long-strided too! ;-)
I don't have a Weltmeyer but I do have a Wolkentanz I mare. She's Wolkentanz I/ Lauries Crusador xx/ Wanderer. Her first foal, by Freestyle, is 2 months old, and you can see the W influence in the...
I second Lauren Chumley. She's both dedicated and talented. :-)
I find it a little sad that an article focused on Rafalca, her contributions to sport and popular culture, as well as specific reference to breeding plans for her leaves out the mare's bloodlines...
A friend just bred her mare successfully with Danciano frozen. Also he got many 9s in qualifying for the YH Champs in Verden and finished second in the 4 yr olds. :-)
I posted at the same time as HAF. Just wanted to say I was consulting the 2012 AHS stallion book and another requirement is that the scores must be earned at USEF recognized shows. Definitely call...
A thought: if your mare has three scores of 60% or above from three different judges at second level test 3 or above, then you only need to present her for inspection in hand. Provided she gets an...
Andrea Seig of Westphalians USA has Florestan I frozen for sale at $1500/dose last I checked.
What an achievement!!! Huge congrats to you, Alexandra. A beautiful colt as well as a fine example of thinking in generations. Well done!!!

I wouldn't. There is, of course, the infamous Shire/Shetland study, but in what other realm of science do we take a single study as gospel? IME, even pairings of similar sized dams and sires can...
Based on my own experience breeding to Florencio and conversations and emails I had with Dr. Timoney over the course of two years, I agree wholeheartedly with Siegi.
VLF, your mare has been...
Oops, just saw post about fresh!
