    Your missing the point.

    "Hi, I'm coming to pick up x."

    Yes, obviously.
    But my point was that that mare will probably produce better with a breeder with knowledge of the dam line. She will also be better positioned to pass on that to the next filly in...

    I wondered too when I first heard it.
    My theory- Schrodinger's Mare. Much like the cat, it is the observer's knowledge that changes the outcome. A stallion can produce enough offspring in a season...

    Really? I won't take a trailer unless I know it is a possible sale and it will be my decision to come home without a horse. How many people leave disappointed because the sale is refused by the...

    For those that wonder why someone would post this here?
    The PO has had at least one thread pulled because it looked very much like an advertisement for the horse. So I guess if someone is using this...

    My writing would be indecipherable if it wasn't for auto correct. I'm always glad that it isn't worse when it happens. :lol:

    I would defiantly shop over there for the access to bloodlines alone. I would also grab a mare if possible.
    Nice horses here but harder shopping, especially if your living there and you have the...

    Not really.
    There are tons of hobby breeders in Europe and I believe they make up the majority of horses bred. Lots were also farmers but the idea they are all professionals is not true. I must have...

    Exactly.
    And the ages on these horses proves that a well bred horse gets better with age. Not a fan of horse sports that top out at 4 or less. The "futurity" is a quick financial turn over that...

    I am in awe of these horses. Amazing.

    This years winner is one of the youngest at 8 and carried weight over the 4 + miles and 30 jumps.

    KWPN was 1969, so 29 years after the Qh.
    More importantly, if you look at the pedigree's they are Wb's from the older registries.
    They did not develop their own, per se, they took the best from...

    Change your answer to "Holsteiner breeding" but registered RPSI, then it is an accurate answer.

    Just to add, Wb's use the registry system but that doesn't make it a genetic free for all,...

    Horse finish growing from the ground up. So I would try the knee to coronet band test. If your horse is slow to grow the other method could be off, as in short. At 2, they usually have more than a...
