There was a children's hunter this year, A Bit of Gold, I think there is a picture of him in one of the recent chronicles, won the Penn National (NAL) childrens hunter class. Very nice looking chestnut and jumps adorable. I think people who know the horse post on here in the hunter / jumper forum. From what I know, All the Gold has an AMAZING jump and passes that on to his offspring. Don't know much about the personality though, but the jump is WOW!
I wanted to breed my mare to him for quite some time actually. any babies I saw were quite well bred, and quite smart as well! I wish I could give you some real concrete information but that is all I have. Never once have I see one of his babies that I do not like.
I believe All the Gold is by Gepard. Are there many out there now that are by Gepard? My stallion is by Gonzo I, who was by Gepard. I'm curious as to whether these lines would be considered "old style" jumper Hanoverian and if so, how rare? Pretty fabulous jumpers regardless.
I have two All the Gold colts. They are beautiful and move well. The people at the farm are great to work with. They shipped fresh to us last year. My mare didn't take after 2 tries so we shipped her up there.
She took first time when we didn't have to add any extender.
We love our foals...very smart and personable.
Pictures of our yearling and weanling are attached.
