    Did they try and bring it in like they did with the influential SF stallions?
    Just wondering why more of his legacy wasn't incorporated?

    I don't know the answer to your question but if you look at the most popular lines in Holsteiner breeding, you don't see the doubling as much as other lines. You see a ton of Ramzes, Raimond and...

    While I would never suggest any horse to be obese, the idea that a young horse has to be very thin in order to prevent issues is totally against the findings of the Hanoverian Verband. They actually...

    They say 5 is a bratty year for Wb's, they question things at that point.

    I have found my Wb's to be highly intelligent. I like the lines that are known for this. However, this doesn't mean they are "easy" horses all the time and under 5 they can be emotional. But they do...

    I think there is room for both, in fact a need for both.
    Canada, for example has breeders that are really making an attempt to breed excellent horses. We do not have the history, population(horses...

    Well, except Wb's were singled out and purpose bred for Calvary and the Olympic sports also derived from Calvary exercises. So I do not think it is fair to say that 50 years ago they were just a farm...

    It isn't based on the registry as CW accepts most of the major European registries. The "purebred" is about the European ancestry of the horse minus the Tb influence.
    Another example is Donnerhall....

    Pepsi and Coke dropped cola from their name. Everyone knows it is a cola and they are branding their company.
    If you go there, they refer to the horse as a Warmblut. It is just everyone knows that...

    In order to even be eligible for registration, they have to trace back to the founding stock. Once again, it isn't the lack of Wb ancestors that create a part breed, it is the fact (as shown by the...

    The point is the criteria is the same, it is 3 generations to get into the Stud Book or Mare book. It isn't the names (which are different) it is the structure that is the same and due to the fact...

    Outside mares (lets pick on a Qh ) are eligible for inspection but are not placed in a book. The foal will be an AUX no matter what. So that 1/2 QH and 1/2 Wb has Aux papers. That is the highest it...

    Actually it is. You must remember that they created that system 20 years ago. How long ago did you register your first Hanoverian?
    If you look back, you will see that the books were set up to mimic...

    If I took my Wb cutting, he would be referred to as an off breed.
    Not that the cows care but the breeders who go out of their way to produce a 8th gen cutting horse do. It is a sign of respect and...

    Thanks for the explanations.
    I know some registries will do dna and paperwork and have a vet do identification on a yearling for registration.

    I have to ask, why does a yearling need to go to an inspection?
    I understand a young horse class but usually foal are registered at the dam's side and mares are inspected at 3 years of age.
