    I don't buy the depression/anxiety excuse at all. If you are well enough to go to work, you are well enough to walk outside and feed the horses in your care!!
    Unbelievable.

    I have a Sir Donnerhall and have seen/dealt with many of them. I think he will reliably add longer lines, uphill balance, natural cadence and a better canter. The mare I bred was from a 16.1 hh dam...

    I didn't mention his name because I don't want to "pick on" or "bash" any particular stallion especially as I think he is a fantastic horse...soft pasterns or not!

    If we are talking about a particular F-line stallion a concern is long and lax pasterns.

    Yes, it is the same one I am sure. It's not like it's horrid or anything, it's just there. In my mind the...

    Hard to say as I have only seen him a few times but it is pretty noticeable. His pasterns actually don't look long, just "soft" so that the fetlock sinks more than normal when he is standing in a...

    Blume Farm, that is interesting but strange considering they will approve a stallion with soft pasterns.

    Stoicfish, the Hanoverians do the same. There is an "accuracy" number for these values. For Wolkentanz II (for riding horse values) it is 89 percent with 53 tested offspring. Wolkentanz 1 for...

    Alexandra, I don't think anyone here is "fighting" about the numbers. Someone else quoted 3000 offspring... I don't believe that and tried to explain why...that's all.

    No, I don't think they would stand him for 11 mares per year, but as is noted, he got more than just the Hanoverian breedings. My point is that I am doubtful he got THAT many more. If he got even...

    178 offspring seems like a very small number for a European stallion that is of that quality. He would have been 15(?) when he come over? That would be 11 breeding's a year, which doesn't seem right....
