    Do lots and lots of homework. Look at as many horses as you can and decide what you like. IMHO, a great brain, trainability, and long-term soundness are what you need. If you're going to look at...

    I would expect a great brain, very good gaits (likely with a particularly nice canter), good hind end, probably a quick hind leg, good sit, probably a decent sized horse, and probably bay.

    Congrats on a lovely mare!!! :)

    I would also lean toward a D-line stallion. Maybe a D/W, like Dante Weltino. Lots of options with this mare!

    Yes! Last year was difficult and it took two tries per mare. First foal (Sir Gregory/ Donnerhall) is due mid-June. Second foal (Freestyle/ Wolkentanz I) is due about the Fourth of July. Not my...

    I agree with Siegi. I'd just breed her.

    And I can definitely empathize with the crazy. I took on an older mare who hadn't kept a foal past 60 days since 2006. She last delivered a healthy foal...

    This. :yes:

    Nickel and diming mare owners this way is a good way to deflect business. I might use a stallion with these fees once, but probably not repeatedly and I would probably warn friends...

    Definitely Damon Hill. He just looks so sweet and easy to ride. I love this video of him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dodrdOWdB0k

    And if I could look a little bit like Helen Langehanenberg...

    Michellino has been available in the US. Becky Train of Frog's Leap Farm in VT had it. I bred a mare to Michellino 12 years ago -- or, I should say, I tried. The mare didn't settle. But others...

    I just want to chime in to say how exciting!!!

    Having met Lagoheidor, I think he'd be an excellent choice. :-)

    It sounds to me like she's made her decision. The teacher in me firmly believes everyone has to start somewhere and, provided she educates herself on the risks and courses of action should things...

    Although I agree with what's been said so far, I do want to add two things.

    1. The stud fee does not automatically reflect the value of the stallion or the value of the offspring. There are...

    Definitely go! The experience of showing at Devon is like none other, for lots of reasons.

    Speaking as a breeder, no, I wouldn't.
    IME, extremely herdbound horses have an innate insecurity. I don't need that in a horse and I certainly don't want to breed it.

    Try doing it more slowly. :-) Height is not the issue. You don't need to put it over a branch. After disconnecting from the source, lay the hose out in a straight line with no kinks, then pick one...

    I had twins three years ago. :eek: At four months of age, they witnessed their first foaling.

    In some ways, since I'm home with them, I have more time to devote to my mares, more time to...

    Yeah, I'm not being sadistic, but, you know, tone is hard to read. :winkgrin:
