    Another of the Fs that I have on my 'to use' list! I love that he keeps the back short, he also seems to give an overall very compact outline with very good limbs. I've heard he may not refine as...

    Her feet clearly need some protection from wear and deterioration. The best shoe for this is one with plenty of support i.e. steel, wide webbed, plenty of heel, and a decent thickness. This equals a...

    I have Floriscount and Quaterhall on my list for the coming season too. Both are equally well suited to the mare in question but for some reason my leanings seem to be toward the F-lines. I have...

    'He passed away peacefully in the stable he was born in...' This struck me. How many elderly horses can this be said of? Great horse, great life, great owners. RIP.

    I agree. Her 'roundness' is not due to her pregnancy at this point. I'm not sure what the sensitivity is but would assume it's not pregnancy related either. But I can't say that for sure.

    Well of course I want to say 'yes' to this but in reality I don't really know the right answer. I do know this though:

    I'd be keen to see foals and hear opinions too. RC really caught my attention early on, I like his look, nature seems nice, and his pedigree is really really strong.

    But he never quite seemed to...

    I agree with you Blume. I've not seen either the mare or Furstenball in the flesh but I think we're talking 2 quite different issues.

    I agree. This would not acceptable for me either. I have a 20 year old mare that's had 11 foals, her pasterns are not dropped at all. My advice would be to steer clear.

    I feel your confusion! :) Equine colour genetics can be a messy thing to get to grips with.

    DW and sabino are not associated - one does not need the other to make white markings.
