    I can't sell our foals for under 10K, but we always try to work with people to offer terms that make our horses affordable. People were so nice to me when we were starting out 20+ years ago, I try...

    Can you name a few names? I can't think of more than a couple modern type US dressage stallions who were either successful at Grand Prix or Team horses and then stood at stud. Idocus, but he bred a...

    I've seen all of these horses come through the stallion selections at den Bosch, and none has been terribly impressive; however, when they come back the next year and are shown under saddle, they're...

    Good morning. As a long-time KWPN breeder, I've always appreciated the amount of information this studbook makes available to breeders. In my earlier days of breeding, I can't tell you how many...

    Congrats to all. There are some really top horses this year, and I'm completely psyched to have the SSF suffix appear repeatedly!

    For some of us, the Totilas star will never fade. You may dismiss this as hyperbole, but he is the stuff of legends in my mind. I love this horse. We're fortunate enough to have two Totilas x Jazz...

    I wouldn't call Chagall's dam old fashioned, Nancy. She's more modern in type, just could use a slightly longer front leg. She's had two Totilas foals, one colt that's being raised as a stallion...

    Thanks for the heads up, Judy.

    Nancy,

    I bought 10 doses of Chagall last year. I've used four doses on three different mares with no pregnancies so far. Of course, given my unusual lack of...

    Down Yonder, this filly jumps anything in her path: water tubs, log holding the salt block, the hose on the ground, the 10" threshold separating my stalls from the aisle--her knees tuck right up,...

    If you can afford it, Totilas is your man. My Totilas x Jazz filly has tons of jump in her. Totilas fits your pedigree requirements, and he's shorter coupled. Although he doesn't have any jumping...

    Our Freestyle colt out of Orchis that did so well in the keuring system is Verito SSF. We were asked to bring him back as a three-year-old and present him under-saddle. In preparation, he began...

    I've been breeding Dutch horses for over 20 years, and every year it seem progressively more difficult to find fresh cooled options. There are multiple reasons for this: One, the KWPN-NA mare base...
  13. Thoroughbred Stallions In or Near New England?

    I have a mare I'm thinking is going to need live cover this year. Anyone know of either a quality TB or Warmblood stallion for live cover within fairly easy driving distance of central New England?
  14. The shoulder is the biggest improvement. ...

    The shoulder is the biggest improvement. Conformationally, the filly looks much more like Totilas than my mare. Time will tell. Video? For me, it's amazing that I even got pictures to post--video...

    From what I've seen so far, Totilas is completely worth the money for breeding. I know it's a lot of mula, but if the rest of his foals are even close to the quality mine is, he's going to prove to...

    Holy crap. That's a lot of money for a foal. $152,200. He's lovely, but not outrageous. Does anyone know this mareline?

    Thanks for all of the responses. We're OK. An hour south of us there were deaths and lots of destruction. We had hail, lightening, and heavy T storms, but no funnel clouds. Don't know how those...

    Need Tornado Advice

    OK. This almost never happens in New Hampshire; we're under a tornado watch. What do I do with my horses? Leave them in or out?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Exactly my reaction, Siegi. The only bad piece of this is that Doi Doi Doi was probably the best sport horse of the Vivaldi sons this year. Have you read that Dude, the Vivaldi x Havidoff, has been...

    Hey, Siegi--no worries. I thought his response was really funny. Just puts things into perspective; that's all!

    On another note, some of my high school students have a joke/game going about FB...

    If I am being completely honest, Totilas is not my ideal type of horse and I wouldn't be striving to reproduce his image through breeding.


    OK. I'll be the first to admit that I'm not exactly...

    I've learned more since posting about Bordeaux. It's OC, which means a flattening of the bone, no chips. Exactly what this means to longterm soundness, I don't know. That's all I know.
