What's the difference between the PA yearlings class and the non-thoroughbred yearling class at Devon? I want start showing my Oldenburg foal on the line and he was foaled in PA. I 'm not sure of the rules at the bred shows or what the advantages are for each one. Is the PA yearling class a mix of local TB's and WB's? Doe's the non-tb yearling class have more competition since it's open to all? He has great conformation and will go to the inspection and breed classes at Dressage at Devon in the fall, but I want to plan for next year! Which would you suggest?
Thanks! Wasn't sure if you could do both! Also for the breed classes at Dressage at Devon, I guess I would enter my 2010 colt in the ISR OLD 2 & under class, but would I have to wean before the show or do most people bring the mare & foal? It's at the end of September. I wasn't going to wean until mid October. I just thought it would be hard to judge a weanling to a 2yo?
Regarding DAD, I brought my foal (unweaned) with dam to show in his foal class, his breed class, produce of dam (with his older sister) and get of sire (with ditto). I thought he would trot better with dam and it was still about two months from the time I wanted to wean him. Many of the youngsters ARE weaned so depends on one's state of affairs.
