I love Mezcalero, but not sure he is a lighter type. But a nice type, non-the-less.
We have a coming 2 yo by Voltaire that stallion owners, stallion developers and inspectors, who have seen, have asked us to wait before we decide to geld. He is KWPN, out of a lovely Canadian TB mare. His name is Corsaire D.
I recently saw a really typey beautiful young one based out of Europe, but his name escapes me right now. Let me think about it and maybe it will come to me.
Winston - he comes from the same lines as Vallado - I almost imported him myself -lovely boy. I believe he is now approved BWP. He also has an approved full brother named Valentino.
Couple others are Uccello and Toronto.
All at Statestud Celle and I love Valentino and Ucello, both have very nice loos movement aswell as jump. Picture in celle stallion book of one of them is really bad though. I may even have footage of Valentino.

2015: Likoto- Florencio - Prince Thatch; Lissaro - Frederico - Prince Thatch; Edward - Sandro Hit - Rouletto
Thanks guys; I have quite a list now to look into. This is just for planning pretty far into the future, but I do love stallion shopping. I'm looking to produce upper level jumpers, so that is of course a factor in my decision. I've read from several sources that crossing Voltaire on some of the Pilot lines seems to be a good nick. However, I would think that temperament would become a possible huge issue?
My mare had an absolutely gorgeous colt by him that was everything I was hoping for out of the cross- lovely topline, excellent hindquarter with *tons* of push from behind, the "sitting" ability for dressage but with an incredible jump on him as well.
I sold this colt before he was weaned and had offers on him after that. The current owner has had multiple people comment that the horse would be worth huge bucks in the hunter ring, but alas, she's a dressage rider!
Edited to add: one of the subsequent offers was from an established Grand Prix dressage trainer, so the colt was definitely a hit for multiple-disciplines (which was one of my goals for the cross).

Thanks Spacely! Amazing may do a couple of breedings in 2009-I plan to take him in the spring for collection training. As of now, I am hoping to offer him to the public for 2010 and present him for approvals as well. Website plans are in the works, but in the meantime there is still a great video of him on Silver Creek's site under the sales horses.
