    Default Pedigree gurus...help!

    I know that pedigree is often irrelevant, and pretty is as pretty does. My new horse is quiet, willing and smart -- so I'm happy. But I'm also curious about his sire, Labeeb, now deceased. Does anyone know if any of his offspring are eventing?

    Son of Lear Fan. Got sent to South Africa as a stallion. Roberto Grandson.

    You have a PM.

    I had a Labeeb son--has gone Training in his first year of competition. Good minded soul with an
    athletic jump.

    Lear Fan is my all time favorite stallion. Labeeb and Fantastic Fellow were the only sons I knew of at stud. I was going to send a mare to Fantastic Fellow, then like Labeeb, he was deemed a commercial failure (in the racing industry) and sold overseas (to Turkey!).

    Just curious. How tall is your horse? A lot of the Lear Fan's are on the shorter side.

    I sold my Elijah M to one of my students because he is smaller--15.3 or so. He's plain bay, pretty, pretty headed, nice conformation. He pulled something up in his hip playing up in the mud at Richland Park Horse Trials and is on rest. Poor bugger is bouncing off the walls! We're keeping fingers crossed for a complete recovery as I believe he'll go through at least Intermediate.

    One of my girls is by Fantastic Fellow and has a Roberto daughter for her fourth dam. She is small, maybe 15.2h, if she's stretching. It's odd about Lear Fan and small, because several of Roberto's other sons were tall and can throw tall horses--I'm thinking Dynaformer and Kris S, in particular.

    Is your new guy Labeeb's Quatrain? I thought he was super cute?
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!
