    How about Connaiseur? (Con Amore/Donnerhall). He's got the Donnerhall blood and the jumping blood that you desire, plus he's available fresh.

    I'm curious why you are seeking such a high concentration of Donnerhall blood? He is an amazing stallion and has many fine qualities to offer. However, you mention you'd like a prettier head and that...

    I had a really nice Wolkenstein II/Arkansas mare who I bred to Freestyle and I was very happy with the results. Freestyle really modernized the mare and improved the canter and uphill tendency. The...

    Hunt coat in the dressage ring?

    I've been thinking about getting a new show coat and I've been coveting the Pikeur Skarlett coat in navy. I've noticed that dressage show coats are getting shorter and shorter and now seem to often...

    They are both fabulous horses although Farouche is more "my type". Keep in mind that Selten has been campaigning the small tour all year and is going to be moving up to GP soon. I believe this show...

    I lived in the Lower Mainland for 31 years, now in Ontario. Personally, you couldn't pay me to go back. Langley is definitely the hub of dressage activity in BC. There are several gold shows in the...

    Total dislike. Why is the natural beauty of the horse not enough? Why must we continue to add more and more bling and sparkle?? Call me old fashioned, but there's nothing more beautiful to me that an...

    Why do you want to use frozen? I believe he is readily available fresh. I met his owner a few months ago. She seems like a very knowledgeable breeder.

    I am in Canada and I almost entirely sell my horses to the US. Right now the Canadian dollar is weak, which makes it attractive for US buyers to shop here. I am a few hours from Toronto and you can...

    It's a time constraint thing more than anything. I keep my horses at home and do all the training myself, so there is no huge expense to keep her longer and put some more training into her. However I...

    I forgot to mention, that in this particular filly's case, I am pretty sure the club foot was caused by the grazing stance. Ever since she was born she's always had one particular foot forward and...

    The foot didn't start looking clubby until she was close to a year old. At the beginning it was only a very mild uprightness so on my vet's advice we treated with nutrition, mineral drench and...

    I think you might actually be my favorite person ever. Can I quote you on this?
  16. How much does check ligament surgery as a baby affect selling price?

    I have a well bred 3 year old dressage type filly that I am selling. This filly had check ligament surgery as a yearling to correct a club foot. I think the surgery for the most part was quite...

    Oh for crying out loud, everyone knows it's Furstenball we're talking about. Why dance around his name?

    I have a Belissimo M mare out of my Freestyle/Wolkenstein II mare. I just adore this mare! Her movement was somewhat underwhelming as a foal and she was not a premium foal, but holy smokes has she...

    A lady I used to ride with had a beautiful imported Roman Nature gelding (sorry, don't know the damline). He is a FREAKISH fancy mover, so much suspension it's incredible. He was very hot though and...

    I am breeding once every several years. My intention is not to sell, but to produce nice dressage horses for myself, so that I always have another nice youngster coming down the pipeline. Although,...
