    Cool the mare you covet... ?

    Having a rainy, reflective October afternoon here...

    Who is the one mare that you *want* but can't have? Must be living, no hypotheticals (that list is TOO long! )

    Mine is Mystic Memories. The only OSB pinto Trakehner mare in the US.

    I would breed her both outside, and to my *Malachit grandson jr. stallion.

    Just a pipe dream, but it's SO fun to dream.

    So who do you covet?

    Oh fun!

    On the planet - Passionata. (Quaterback's mother, half to Poetin and Samba Hit I-V) Got to finally see her in May, showing off with Quaterback II at her side and OMG.

    In the US - Rabiola, Queen of DAD.

    Wow. Tell us more about Quaterback II.

    I covet Wahajama. I wonder what is up with her. Is she still competing or perhaps a mom. I saw her in Verden and she made me cry.

    I'll have to think about this more, but my partner's Calido I mare does come to mind.....

    I found her, but when I couldn't afford to purchase her, I was glad that he could.

    All that you'd expect - gorgeous and then some. Not sure how old he was then - I think it was his first public appearance.

    Lucky you to see Wahajama!

    Nice mare And she is bay! But serisouly, where did that neck come from?

    Anyways, right now, the mare I am currently trying to acquire comes to mind She is young, but there is something so special about this one...she is on my list before a Galoubet mare & my friends nice hunter that places at the top both o/f & in the hack, but has a coffin bone injury that she just can't be kept sound on So needless to say, I want this young filly a very, very lot

    I have a few candidates closer to my own stratosphere, though still above it, but if we are going way out there in dreamland, I would love to put Brentina in my broodmare band.

    I have one of my mares (my GP mare Fancy Free!) but if I could add a second it would be Blu Hors Matine I adore her.

    Ok, here's mine: Lissas Gold Legacy
    One of the few buckskin TB mares in the world that is not related to our buckskin TB stallion. She has produced at least one Oldenburg Approved (GOV) main mare book mare and I just think she's gorgeous and would produce outstanding foals with our boy.

    Smile Rabiola

    I absolutely love Rabiola by Metall. She is owned by Iron Spring Farm. Even if I won the lottery I'm sure she would never be for sale. But, I can enjoy watching her clean up every year at Dressage at Devon's breed show.

    That mare is amazing! I swear she knows when the attention is on her and for her conformation stance, she puffs up and just preens! And then when she trots off, it is an amazingly cadenced trot with loads of suspension. She totally has the "look at me" attitude.

    I had the (unfortunate) pleasure of showing my broodmare at Devon this year right after Rabiola went. Both my handler and I were like "ugh, to have to go in right after Rabiola!". Luckily, my mare had no such nerves and strutted her stuff too (placed 3rd behind Rabiola and Hilltop Cha Cha).

    Another mare I wouldn't turn out of my barn is Hilltop Cha Cha (Cordoba - Weltmeyer). She is an ex-FEI horse and has a super temperment. When it was her turn to show, she could walk nice and relaxed and turn it "on" for the trot (hence the Reserve Grand Championship this year). But when her 2008 filly was showing, it looked like the handlers were dragging Cha Cha around the triangle as she trotted casually in a "hunter" jog trot. So she new when she had to be "on" and when it was her filly's turn!

    Thank you! I don't know where that stallion neck came from! I assume the Calido I side! She is also one of the most mannered horses that I know. We bred her to Cabardino for an '09 foal.

    Hmmm off the top of my head- Rabiola- LOVED her when I saw her at DAD a few years ago. I'm not even a warmblood fan

    I'm sure I could also think of some performance mares to add to my list too.

    I would like Loretta, thank you very much - dam of Sandro Hit, Diamond Hit, and Royal Hit.

    I would also take Poesie, dam of Poetin and approved stallions Samba Hit 1, II, III, etc., and granddam of Quaterback.

    I'll second the vote for Loretta. She would look very nice in my pasture!
