    Just saw a video of a lovely young Wolkentanz ll and it struck me that most of them are very similar in type. It is a more modern and he really adds elasticity.

    And he has lots of offspring under...

    Is there any correlation to mineral deficiency?

    Some bodies get the right amount but are always short of it in the body and for functions.

    Gervantus is a 1987 model. Fred is a 91'.

    Is there any Tb research that says the fertility decreases at a certain age?
  4. Exactly.

    Exactly.

    With good frozen? Any of the top stallions.
    Most of the time they are in their 20's before they really find out how good of a sire they are.

    You were oblivious to the fact that the trims were that bad? It takes more then a bit of a bad trim job, usually several other things that were also missed. And you didn't notice the issues? The...

    I am very glad she ended up with someone that is so excited about her. :)
    I have no clue what breeds she is made up of, possible Qh?

    As for the inspection, I wouldn't bother to take her. The...

    There are a ton of misconceptions about Wb's. Some times I think people are intimidated by the size, so the same behaviour that would be acceptable in a 15h package get more attention in 17h. Also,...

    There are lots of other breeds that have sport in mind. I really respect Connemaras, for instance.
    But I think you have to be fair that a "sport horse" should have a organization supporting the...

    Well since this is a sport horse forum and not a pleasure horse forum, I think it might be fair to say that the market may be failing due to lack of qualified consumers.
    I live in Alberta, so...

    And quit talking about this in public, in writing. It is a small world and whatever you say may come back to haunt you.

    If your in Canada?
    People are missing the point that she is responsible for the fencing and her stallion. Tell her to take you to small claims court if she has an issue. They will legally settle it....

    For the same reason that people are looking to use Holsteiner blood in dressage horses, the engine.
    I think some people are looking to add the power without killing the movement.
    Personally some...

    Foaling out any mare with no experience is not a good idea. And you have ignored several papers, experiments and recognized biological theories. It is not just anecdotal.

    And the bolded...

    I would find this more telling if there was numbers over the last 30 years. Saying this as there might be a trend if you look back far enough. Since there are only so many riders, it may be that...

    They are not using a curve then?


    ^^^This would be great. Not to mention a limit on the number of foals in their first couple of years.

    I saw this issue with a good friends youngster. They did call the best and there was no confirmed cause. Many breeders around had not seen that type of issue in many years of breeding. There was also...

    From a recent (and excellent) study of ODC in Wb's. http://www.hanoverian.org/ahs_media/downloads/articles/OCD.pdf
    Time to stop weighing the witch against the duck and find the real causes.

    Not offended at all. No clue how you came up with that.
    Once in a while topics come up that actually are worth discussing for breeders or people raising young horses. I think it is a worth while...

    Thank you for taking the time to post these.
    The problem is, none actually have a conclusion that a normal body weight is the source of the issues BEYOND feeding a high glycemic diet and mineral...

    Could you post the links to the studies?

    Never really thought of Wb's as slow growing. And I ask because about the studies because I think there is a misconception out there about feeding young...
