    Default Build your perfect TB sportshorse

    This thread may fall flat since there are already 2 threats regarding TBs, but there's been a LOT of info posted about TB pedigrees so I thought it might be fun to do hypothetical crosses.

    The cross with the Gem Twist clone is a gimme.

    I'll play. This filly is a yearling, owned by a good friend of mine, so she's real. Stallions would be very interesting for her but imagine Gem Twist clone crossed on her.

    I can tell you I have played with 3 coco kids. This one I posted whom I think is quite special as well as her pasture mate http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/high+grove3 .
    I also have one who was the 3rd pasture mate but mine is not full TB though she's 70% blood. http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/hialeah7

    They are quite neat I really like Coconut Grove as a sire. He totally stamped the 3 of them.

    wow Simkie. That is the closest I've seen Pocahontas in a pedigree I think in a long time. Nicely bred mare

    To build my perfect tb sporthorse I need to own about 10 more mares so I can experiment.......except the barn is full right now....and I kept forgetting to buy lottery tickets!

    Still, I am up to my bad ways looking at canter mares and came across this girl In West Virginia with Catch on Dream (Bonne Nuit line) in the mare line....I dont know about the rest although I think she has some turf horses also on the bottom (turf sometimes equal sporthorse?). Maybe she is not a head turner but her pedigree is interesting.

    Maybe breed her to the triple twist stallion?

    I would love to see what the Triple Twist stallion can do.

    Coconut Grove is a lovely stallion. I'd love to have one his babies or one of his daughters too.

    Specifically for the hunters, I would love to cross this mare http://www.pedigreequery.com/miss+kilkee with this stallion http://www.pedigreequery.com/canadian+kid, not because of bloodlines but because I love what the mare has produced bred to this stallion http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/pikadero and I love my Kid baby out of this mare http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/lil+loose. Problem is... not enough years (or $'s for that matter).

    Someone want to find a match for this mare with Buckpasser and Prince John up close? Although I might consider another very well bred TB if I really, really liked him.

    I bred her to this lovely stallion this year : http://www.pedigreequery.com/real+partner

    Was going to go WB next year, but if I could find the right guy in the Northeast again...

    Just an FYI - Yak's dad Mandarin crossed absofreakingbeautifully with this mare:

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/cgi-bin/new/check2.cgi

    One of the resultant foals is glenhill's Roz. Most were fancy Hunters and one was a 4'6" Jumper -- all were line babies.

    My filly Validate, is out of a Buckpasser mare...

    PM me if you want pictures - I will have to dig.
    I gotta do-over and am doin it my way!!!

    I'll just take the yearling gelding that has already been bred by (for sale this year at) Virginia Tech last year.

    Castle Cove x My Ballet Class x Bit of Class out of Bally's Image by Winged T out of Bally Cor.

    That pedigree screams sport horse.

    I'm assuming they used Castle Cove frozen, since he's dead.

    Castle Cove is most assuredly NOT dead. A friend of mine had inquired about breeding to him a couple months ago and he was fine and ready to go. You are probably thinking of his sire, Castle Magic, one of the best hunter sires ever.

    P.S. There's a full brother to My Ballet Class at stud in VA, named Fun And Fancy Free, he's young yet but is looking to be a good one.

    I would love to breed my friend's mare:

    http://www.meadowviewfarm.com/Cheetah.htm

    To this stallion before he passes away.

    The only reason that guy is at stud is his color and Bit of Class on top. He'd be an okay gelding, though, or a stud for QHs.

    If someone wanted to use a Bit of Class son, who would be the best choice? The Fun and Fancy Free horse looks to have a dam that was a good sporthorse herself.

    I have plans to breed my stallion (Navy Bird) back to my mare (Young Man's Fancy). I have a 2 year old from this match and he is everything I hoped for - lovely conformation, straight and correct, a big boy already over 16 hands and well built, fabulous temperament, good mind and learns quickly, good feet, nice mover and as an added bonus he is flashy as heck with tons of chrome and a flaxen mane and tail! I want to keep this boy and make him my own hunter. I couldn't breed Fancy back in 2008 as I had a 3 year old to sell, but he is now sold and in a good home so I can breed another one.

    Here's the pedigree of the filly that Twistoffate just had by Triple Twist.
    http://www.sporthorse-data.com/dbtes...damid=10453685

    It'll be very interesting to see how the baby turns out from a linebred Roberto mare. To me, this pedigree also screams sporthorse.
