    Default Rolling Stone Farm's Stallion Shakespeare RSF is remarkable

    I started out to go visit my A/O horse More About Me and continued up the turnpike to Rolling Stone Farm where he came from, to visit Goodie's father Loerke... and visit with Mo. I love talking with her about horses and why she does what she does.

    Mo is so amazing... she does everything! I looked at fabulous babies.... BUT I was so impressed with her home bred stallion Shakespeare RSF who is sired by Sandro Hit! I can't get this guy off my mind... A unbelievable mover and so athletic. His dark brown coat was glistening in the sun. He just turned 4 and will be available to at stud to very select mares in 2009. Mo bred many of her amazing mares to him for 2009 ... all I can say is I can't wait.
    I had so much fun... horses everywhere.

    Aren't her babies amazing? Did you see Rheporter, her Royal Prince filly? I love that girl.

    What scary is that she told me she's had one filly this year that is even better than Rheporter.

    I wonder if she inseminates the mares with frozen herself? I love browsing her website and looking at all the great crosses...super exciting, she is obviously very good at what she does

    Yes, she ultrasounds and inseminates her mares.

    Is that even possible???? Holy cow. That one must never touch the ground when she moves. What is the breeding of the next superstar?

    I really enjoyed Silver Balls visit yesterday. It is always fun to show off your horses, and I had told him about two super hunter type foals that he HAD to come look at. Shakespeare is a really special horse and I think that he has the best riding horse qualities I have ever produced. I am looking forward next year to a lot of foals sired by him out of a variety of my mares to see what he can produce. I did not market him at all to outside mares, so I never bothered to put together a video, online or otherwise. In early spring, the time you should start promoting your stallion, we hadn't ever collected him to know if if there was even going to BE semen to ship, not to mention know about it's quality. Now we know that all of that is good, and after I have seen what he can produce, I will better know how to recommend him to outside mare owners. I felt I had an obligation to Shakespeare, and to warmblood breeding in general, to do it this way. Plus, I chose not to send him to the stallion test, and so I will have to explore that route vs. the performance route for him in the future. Meantime, he continues to progress under saddle. We went to a clinic last week with Carol Lavell, and she was very complimentary.

    Mo... you are much to modest. Shakespeare is truly awesome! And ALL the foals are all so nice....
