    I have a narrow chested horse that came to me as a 4 year old. The horse is very petite all over, fine bone, long neck, tiny head, smallish feet. The chest did not improve over the years but her...

    I'm not seeing a stupidly short head in those photos. It looks petite and ponyish compared to her body size and bone, but not ridiculous.

    Her growing molars are making the underside of her jaw...

    Congrats. Just make sure those cojones are actually cojones and not a testicular hernia. It can be a common mistake to make.

    Photos of the spotless wonder please!!

    I am in New Zealand so I may not typify your average COTH breeder. I breed high-end dressage horses although some are purchased to be eventers and show horses.

    Most of my youngsters sell to older...

    Ooh nice!

    My Dominant White Hanoverian mare is in foal to Furstenball. Can't wait!!

    My other old Hanoverian mare lost her Furstenball pregnancy early on and never cycled properly after that....

    Oh, and I took a look at the video of Shah as a yearling. Awkward age, bum high, looking a bit gawky around the edges. She still moves 100% better than my filly! Shar shows the beginnings of that...

    Haha, Kyz I adore your flat out honesty! A throw back to ugliness is my worst nightmare! As a craver of all things beautiful, my slightly homely old Hano mare could give me a frankenhorse at any...

    Good question! :)

    I really admire breeders who repeat a cross many times over. I love to compare the full siblings.

    But I am a bit impatient. I am always looking for improvement and as I breed...

    I'm another that would choose Furstenball :)

    I don't love First Choice. I like his pedigree but he looks like a naughty, tight-strung pony! Your mare has better use of hocks than him, and I'm not...

    I'm sorry, I can't agree with JB more. The mare's flaws will be difficult to improve sufficiently, let alone using the stallion you've suggested.

    I know you're not looking at breeding at the high...

    I breed only 1-3 foals a year and manage to make a profit. I own my own farm/barn and do most of the handing etc myself.

    I know it's been said at least once already, but no harm in underlining it...

    At 25 I was not long into a lengthy overseas excursion, a 'coming of age' type experience that Australasians use as a right of passage following tertiary studies and before settling down. :) Much of...

    Me three! Persiflage has really got it all. LOVE this for an eventing sire. A real breath of fresh air.

    As an ex-breeder of eventers I have an in-built interest in event breeding. I'm not sure I'm...

    My life did a complete 180. I thought I'd be running about the farm with the little one strapped to me, and riding while he slept arena-side. Unfortunately I had difficult and painful pregnancies...

    I used 1 dose (3 straws) each on 2 mares, one young, one elderly (19) and got 2 pregnancies. 60% motility under the scope. I am happy! :)

    Is it just me or does he seem bigger in front than behind? Impressive front end/neck etc but his hindquarters seem less so. Leaving out how this may/may not affect movement/ability, it is just...
