    I was in Holstein when this guy was going through his licensing (he was not approved, I had to double check in my book). We (a group of the North American contingent) were laughing hysterically every...

    Piedmont, I can't really answer your question as we haven't tried mom and baby back in together yet. They did, however, "accidentally" encounter each other at about the three month weaning point (I...

    I carry my phone in my bra when I'm desperate, but I have actually destroyed a phone by having it short out from sweat after continuously having it in my bra while riding during the summer. I...

    Some good anecdotes and advice on here. I didn't read all of the posts so forgive me if mine is redundant.

    We are all entitled to our opinions, but I think you need to reframe your perception of...

    Are you referring to Galoubet, sire of Baloubet du Rouet? His dam is a trotter. The naming is a bit confusing.

    Ah, good point. That is A LOT of Martini; I wasn't factoring that in, clearly.
  7. I've always liked Clover Cliste but that might be...

    I've always liked Clover Cliste but that might be too much draught if the OP is looking for a really good upper level horse. Clover Cliste is more than half Irish Draught; he would need to be crossed...

    Yes, I've seen some of these dwarf minis on a farm in Virginia that was rescuing them - some of them look like mutants, their conformation is alarmingly horrible. It's really sad to think there are...

    I don't think Kyzteke is saying it is not a good idea to start with a high quality filly; rather that it can be more cost-effective to buy an older, proven broodmare. Also, while the filly's pedigree...

    OP is in Australia, so is not on "this" side of the pond. ;)

    Completely agree with this. I have never had only one stallion on my list for any mare, I usually have at least 3 or 4 that I feel would suit the mare. I can see having a stallion at the top of the...

    I don't see this as being the OP's problem. There is a difference between comparing oneself to others competitively ("making life a contest") and comparing oneself to the stage one would like to be...

    You might consider contacting the folks at Camelot Stables in Delta, B.C.; they stood Deutschmeister (your mare's sire) and may even be familiar with your mare. Deutschmeister was used a lot in their...

    I LOVE Diamond Stud, I think he is a fabulous stallion. Interesting that you bred to him, though, when you want neither size nor substance. I saw him last year; he is a BIG boy. I think with the...

    Or Chico's Boy (if you are willing to use frozen - you haven't specified a preference for fresh or frozen)! He has produced some nice offspring for dressage. He likely will not add height and may...

    I just want to say that I saw Dracula during the final days of the 70 day test in December. He seemed to have a really solid, workmanlike temperament; I didn't see him put a foot wrong. I heard...

    He is in this area, at Ashland Farm in Ashton, Ontario (previous owners of Ikoon and Popeye K). Also known as Chablis I Z.

    I have a 5 year old gelding by him out of an imported Acord II mare....

    Second the option of Persiflage!

    Chilli Morning is also available for breeding if you are in the UK, correct? I don't know too much about what he's putting on the ground or whether any of his...

    I agree with your assessment of most of these tools except for the chambon. The chambon, used when lungeing, does not create a backwards action but instead (when used correctly) encourages the horse...

    Good post, armchair_Q. There are few event horse breeders in North America (compared with those breeding for the other disciplines) because there is a very limited market for event-bred foals. If...

    Thanks for pointing these out, Molly Malone. I have seen a few of his offspring that seemed promising and that I've really liked the look of. However, I still feel that given the number of Windfall...

    I really like the look of this guy, but as far as I know he is not available for breeding to outside mares? Maybe this has changed for 2014?

    I don't know much about the Westfalen registry; wouldn't mind learning more. I went to the North American registry website, though, and the link to approved/available stallions doesn't work. Is this...
