    I think your short list is inconsistent as the stallions on the list are very different. :) Picardo is compact and lovely, but he is also a Parco and the Parco/Darco is blood that will give you...

    I see his dam line is keur and prefer, but what sport horses have come from that motherline?

    Vallado (Praise) is blooded and refined. He is 16.1 h and tends to produce the size of the mare. His offspring have talent for both dressage and jumping and are "forward" without being hot.

    No ... the super high-end stallions are getting 8 to 20 mares with only a limited group getting more. Most of the average to lower end stallions only get a handful of mares with the exception of...

    Most stallion owners offer incentives for return breeders, multiple mares, premium/performance mares as well as booking early.

    Well the carriage is all in pieces :lol: as it gets bondo, primer, and paint. What do you recommend for replacing the padding on the single tree and the grips for the back?

    :D I remember! I just wish Drew was still here at the farm. Haha ... he was teasing me that it only took me 5 or 6 years to make my dream happen.

    I really like the Cabardino's that I have seen, but, in my experience, he produces larger than he is so I wouldn't look to him as a refining stallion. My friend bred her 16.2, very narrow and fine...
