Re: Orlando, he has not been available fresh....I've been enquiring about him for each of the last few years. I have a mare that I've really been wanting to use him on, and have been watching the success of his offspring in France.
Krallen - Orlando's son, Coronado WW is fabulous. I had a Coronado filly in 2007 and she was the highest scoring filly on the BWP tour -really outstanding (and out of a TB mare). She's growing up to be a lovely mare.
There is some super video of him on his owner's site - and, he's ridden by an amateur.
The rest of the pedigree isn't too shabby - he's out of a Kannan daughter, with Sandro on the bottom.
A Fine Romance has a number of offspring competing in the jumpers, one of whom is a winning Grand Prix jumper.
Lips, aka My Romance, now called Southbound, is also a bottle raised homebred FULL TB who was already an Advanced eventer before moving to the jumper ring.
A Fine Romance is based in Canada, however, not the US.

yep, he was sold. Total bummer! I loved that stallion, and he was producing so well. I am just glad that I bred to him when I did.
So will he never be available - gelded and no frozen - or was he purchased by someone who is not making him available to the public? Too bad either way. This is a horse I thought would make an interesting cross on Irish mares.
