    Bayhawk is accurate on this...Casall may have a blood quotient of 50%, but that is not synonymous with being "half-TB". That's just misleading...and really stretching to make a point here.....

    You know what...kudos to more open stud books (such as KWPN) for integrating the genetics from other studbooks to create some superb jumping horses! It really is the globalization of...

    I breed mine at 3 years old. I either back them before breeding, or most often, after they are in foal. Just walk, trot, canter and then they have the rest of that year off. As a four year old, I...

    I would guess poling would be the most common. Who knows, though? But it certainly is obvious sometimes at these auctions, and some licensings, which horses have had some....umm....unnatural...

    HCG has been on "manufacturer back order" for a long time now. I don't know what will replace it, but we've gone to using only deslorelin, which is more expensive.

    Well, I don't know that I agree with the premise, but I'd say it's because for jumpers, pretty is as pretty does! Looks don't matter, but jumping ability does :) That being said, check out...

    I'm also voting that this is a function of social media, more than anything else. People tend to share the bad news more than the good. And when one has had a bad year, one tends to look for/notice...

    Agree with ShannonD on this one. Do the research. Temperament is a factor in the stallion testing, as well. The info on this guy is out there, you just have to do a bit of internet searching.

    I think the bottom line is that if you aren't comfortable with it, you shouldn't do it :) If you're stressed and anxious, it's not going to be a fun experience, no matter what!

    I've done the 12 hrs with a foal as young as 3 weeks before. If I had a mare that was a complete freak about being hauled, then I probably wouldn't drive that far. But here in the Midwest, we don't...

    I think, in general, this is an area where people tend to worry too much. There have been several times that I've had to haul mares w/foals to an inspection site 12 hrs away (from Missouri to Texas)....

    I hosted what was essentially a private inspection a few years ago...just one outside mare. So not the first time, but I certainly doesn't happen very often. I usually drive to Texas for an...

    Update on Missouri Holsteiner inspection site! Location will be Fisher's Stable in Sedalia, Missouri on September 12th. There is limited stabling, so if you are planning on attending and haven't...

    It's ok; we can agree to disagree :) As I said, I'm not attacking the line...I like the blood. I'm not sure, though, why you're singling me out, though? I certainly am not the only person on this...

    I also have a ton of experience breeding with the Galoubet blood, but not with BdR. I had a direct Galoubet daughter for years and had 5 foals from her, three of which were daughters (one I still...

    1. No foal/horse is perfect; that's not attainable and if that's the goal you will be unhappy.

    2. No one can predict how a foal is going to mature...believe me. They all change incredibly, some...

    Quality Time frozen semen?

    Has anyone here used frozen semen from Quality Time (standing at Nijhofs) or know of any pregnancies conceived using his frozen semen? Thanks!
  19. Holsteiner Inspection in Missouri *UPDATE 7/15

    I will be hosting an AHHA inspection on September 12th, in Sedalia, Missouri. If anyone is interested in presenting mares/foals, please let me know ASAP, either here, or via call/text at 660-441-5002.

    I agree with most of the information here. Baloubet, as his sire Galoubet, is known to be very difficult and hot. When Baloubet first came on the breeding scene he was ridiculed as a breeding...

    I had a Larimar foal this year, but obviously can't speak to rideability yet :) She is sweet and easy to get along with, as most foals are. I liked the Larimar's I saw in Germany, so I decided to use...

    I would not double up on Pilot if you really want something quiet, although there are other horses in the pedigrees here. I have had a lot of this blood in my program, and I love it, but I love it...
