    Default Blue Hors Romanov, anyone?

    Does anyone know what type of mare Romanov does best with, size of foals, what traits that he consistantly passes? Thanks, Peg

    Default Hoping someone in hte know would elaborate

    I am looking at this stallion as well. I acutally prefer Rubin Royal but Romanov "sounds" like he may be the better producer... as I was told Romanov throws a longer leg and better hind leg than Rubin Royal. Just hard to overlook the shoulder on Rubin!!

    I'm curious to hear any insights also. It would seem that Romanov has a "nick" with Donnerhall mares. Many of his licensed stallion and award-winning mare offspring are from this match. Romanov is very tall though. I wonder if he's throwing this height consistently. I'm also curious if he's throwing his nice neck, strong loin, long legs, and "rounder" gaits. He seems highly trainable (doing Grand Prix at 8-9 years) but also pretty hot. Rubin seems hot and often tight too. I'm not complaining. I like sane but hot horses--just an observation.

    Well, in a more recent thread, Kareen answered my unspoken question about Romanov.... Would he be good with my Fabuleux filly and I guess the answer is yes. It's difficult for me to choose a stallion for a maiden because of my own insecurities! My instincts pointed to Romanov and another R stallion, but the former was my first choice. Thanks, Kareen! Peg

    Default Will you share?

    I am trying to find where Kareem posted about Romanov... I too have him at the top of my list.

    Donna Belcher's new SPS Fabriano mare out of Manfred Kregel's stem to be more precise you are right
    Yes I do love him. The yearling filly we have by him out of a Warkant-Hohenstein dam is looking very promising and we are expecting another on behalf of a client out of a Sandro Hit-Davignon-Werther dam that should make a really good match.
    You can see video of Romanov at this year's stallion show on our site linked below (the one where he is doing 40some singles in a row with Rudolf Zeilinger aboard. Quite the eye candy I really had a blast and the show was worth visiting for me.

    I must say that Zeilinger rides Romanov masterfully. I wish he were competing him
    I have had one Romanov foal - and believe she is exceptional in her movement and temperament and beauty. She has gone to an excellent home, and I have high hopes for her.
    Here she is at "days old":

    I've decided to breed my maiden Bruderherz (Bolero)/ Akzent II mare to Romanov. Here's a thread you might be interested in -- a few different breeders weigh in on Romanov:

    My mare Diva (bought from our own Kareen ) had an exceptional Romanov filly. She is owned by a friend and I covet her in a very big way. I am anxiously waiting for a full sibling in March. The semen is excellent. Romanov added tremandously to the mare's movement. The temperament is wonderful. Legs are longer. See more of her here:

    You're welcome! I have to say that, as impressive as Romanov is, and considering everything he's got going for him, it was really Kathy (SunnyDays) and MaryLou's (Home Again Farm's) fillies that pushed me over the edge and convinced me to use this stallion. What amazing fillies!

    Yes, thank you Kendra for your posts. Your comment about Absatz tugged at my challenged brain and I remembered that Absatz is doubled in Fabuleux and Facette, my filly, also has Absatz in the damline, although not as recent. Mary Lou and Kathy, those are wonderful fillies and sure set the mark to attain. I remember seeing the photos last spring, but with so many stallions out there it is tough to stay focused! Peg

    FWIW, Dr. Corey Miller of Equine Medical Center of Ocala had a gorgeous Romanov colt a few years ago. IIRC, he was a premium Oldenburg foal and may have also been named a stallion prospect. I believe he showed with some success as a foal in both DSHB and hunter breeding shows.
