    I always got my cats from our local no-kill shelter when they got over crowded and had their "2 for 1 sale". As I recall it was $45-65 for 2 cats/kittens. All were fixed, vaccinated and came with a...

    Take a look at the pedigree of Verdades -- his entire tail female line are Dutch Harness horses...not exactly the same as STBs, but not what you would think to produce a dressage horse.

    This embryo was from a mare already in Germany with a solid PSG show record by a sought-after stallion who does not freeze well. Sellers did all the work then sold the embryo (frozen). It was...

    Not sure this is accurate. I sold a filly at age 28 mos for 15K & I cleared between $6000-8000 profit. The cost of the mare must be divided among the total # of offspring she produces, don't you...

    True. I noted that in my first post about how the Hanoverian (a "type" bred in the region of Hanover of over 300 yrs...or do you call them a "breed"? Either word fits) was changed and modified many...

    As has been noted in the Breeding Forum thread, this account is as full of holes as a sieve. And the fact they have a picture of Donnerhall REALLY shows their ignorance, because as Manni noted, he...

    Thank you. Perhaps Sunflower can order herself a copy. Or maybe someone should advise the Australian Hanoverian Society where to get a copy...;)

    Well, I'll take the one that was written by a German historian who can read the records in the original German. The author has endless documentation of bloodlines, descriptions of the original 12...

    This is a copy of my response on the original thread. Honestly, I am SO disappointed that this BS theory is still out there.

    I'm sure after some 11+ pgs many, MANY people have corrected you Sunflower, because you are completely and totally wrong.

    Thanks guys! I've been away for awhile & I'm happy to read everyone's responses. I'd suspected those kits were sort of hit & miss, because, as someone else mentioned, all dogs are the same species,...

    I'd be curious to find out if the horse had ever seen any of these things before. But either way, I suppose it's impressive for a dressage horse, but as an over-all thing? Meh.

  18. DNA "breed" testing kits for dogs: the real deal or a rip off?

    I've heard both sides on these things. Has anyone ever tested one of these by using them on a dog you knew 100% their breed (or breed background)?

    Does anyone have a particular brand they would...

    There are at least 50 shades of bay (sorry...had to do it) and very often a bay foal is born without black legs. But you will begin to see them as he sheds out.

    OP: you mentioned wanting to "stay with Oldenburg lines". Do you mean with horses who are actually from Oldenburg bloodlines or stallions who are approved with GOV?

    Personally I would stay away from WBs; you are liable to get 16h+ from any of the WB stallions mentioned.

    Instead I would look at GRP, or even better, some Connemeras or some Welsh Cobs. Erin Go...
