    Default Yet another 'Help Me Pick a Stallion' thread

    I am having a tough time finding a date for my big Danish mare, Chiquita Thais, for next year.
    She is a substantial gal at just over 17.1 and is basically a mountain of a mare.
    She has a fabulous jump, great movement.
    Her back is a tad long, her head is unfortunate but not offensive. She has ears that would make a donkey proud.
    I breed for the hunter ring. It would be a plus if the foal is pretty enough to do the hunter breeding but the main goal is to get a hunter.
    So, lets hear who (or is it whom?) you would choose for Chiquita.
    She is in foal now to Redwine. She was bred to Zarr earlier in the year but lost it at 30 days.
    Frozen or fresh.
    Here is one photo - I need to resize the others.

    She is lovely, I was admiring her pictures from her inspection on TOC!

    I have two rather substantial girls myself, and chose to use Dacaprio for them to make hunter babies in '09. A few others that I considered are Landfriese, Pablo, Donatelli, and Cabardino. I think they all have some refining type traits to offer.

    Good luck!

    I don't even have to say it.... but another vote for Donatelli. First a hugely sucessful GP dressage horse and now he's winning in the Pre-Green hunters now in Canada and supposed to be doing the First Years this coming spring. Don't think you could ask for much more versatility than that. Our Telli foals have all moved famously and he has consistently improved the type on heavier mares that need a better head. There are several videos on YouTube if you search "Donatelli stallion". He has several offspring showing GP jumpers in Germany right now so the jump is all there.

    Pablo also as someone mentioned. I also love Royal Prince for type.

    She is a maiden. She is pregnant with her first foal now (Redwine).

    Great suggestions. I completely forgot about Carbardino. Love him.
    Sig - Why am I not suprised about you suggesting Donatelli? I love the foals you have bred by him.

    What about Escudo II? The Donatelli, Cabardino & Pablo suggestions are fabulous.

    LOL, your big Danish mare sounds EXACTLY like my big Danish mare.

    I bred Tropica to Concorde B to fix much of what you want to fix and to improve as well.

    She's due next April - I'll share foal pics to see if Concorde B will work for you :-)

    Ronda - I will be anxiously awaiting your Danish mares Concorde B foal.

    Spacely - I have Escudo I on my short list (and in the semen tank!) but am waiting to see what Della produces with him first.
    I was considering crossing her with a tb and maybe with JTB being part thoroughbred that might work. Not sure if he is known to shorten backs. I will have to go searching.
    I went to Jones Hall's site and noticed he is For Sale. Boy if that did not get me day dreaming!

    The aforementioned Escudo II might be a neat option too. It is so nice to have those big, stout mares but then it's so hard to produce a modern type from them sometimes. Also Regazzoni has produced many nice hunter types and freaky movers.

    Do look back through her lineage and do some research into her breeding. Just because she is bigger/heavier herself, look back further and see what is there as sometimes they don't reproduce it, and likewise a mare that does not look heavy with a heavy background may throw it. Of course, it's hard to know before you see her first foal! Based on his first foals in the US I'd say Redwine was a good choice for her type wise.

    Frozen.... how about Escudo I, or honestly our Renaissance colt is turning out to be quite lovely. Of course he is out of a stout TB mare, but the stallion himself has a good portion of TB blood. There is still frozen available and we had a pregnancy on the first and only dose. Ruiz Soler?

    Edited to add, since we were posting at the same time, I do quite like the types on the JTB babies. They are definitley stamped. The TB blood would serve her well I think.

    For a TB, what about that really cute Larry's Hat horse?

    Ahh yes, bloodlines. Sorry about that.
    She is by Castro (Calypso I/ Landgraf I) and out of a mare named Sabine-A(Saskibard II / Alf) I know nothing about her dam line at all.
