What an incredible catalog and presentation. Steady cam!?! the bar keeps moving and we in America simply can't and or/don't try to keep up. I am amazed. OK NOW what do I have to have on my sale page to be competitive...besides brilliant horses...fun to see but daunting...time to call my web woman. Wow. Wow. PatO
Wowza! Those are some nice horses. Keeping my fingers crossed that For Compliment come to North America. Did you guys notice the very close line breeding on many of theses horses? Is this common? Look at the pedigrees on 4,8,10, 24. Is there such thing as too much Donnerhall and Sandro Hit? A friend of mine breeds dogs and she just bred half sister to half brother. Ended up with 5 puppies, only 1 of which survived. They suspect there were genetic defects with the others.
I agree with siegi b. Some of the dressage horses don't excite me.
I also agree with Forte. The inbreeding on several of those horses is frightening. Royal Schufro is 50% Loretta and 19% Donnerhall. And he's a stallion although it doesn't say if he is approved. To my mind that amount of inbreeding is playing with genetic fire.
I do like Diamonit, lovely expressive front legs and hind legs that are quick enough.
I like Dubai, and if I were rich, he'd be on his way to the states after the auction. But, since I am not rich, I will continue to hope that someone who IS rich loves me and wants me to be happy, and therefore will somehow see this post and buy Dubai for me. Rich person who loves me, are you there?
