    Default Broodmare pedigree & confo critique, please!

    I got a new broodmare this past year as part of a trade and I haven't been able to find much information about her sire. She's by a Danish stallion named Lato B, who was apparently shown as Danish Dynamite. What little I did find on him lists him as an international level showjumper, but no further info. Does anyone know anything about him? Any info on the sire would be greatly appreciated, and any info or opinions regarding her pedigree or possible stallion choices for her would be greatly appreciated. The mare was supposedly shown in the hunters until injury and moves and jumps well, so my plan is to breed her to a hunter stallion next year. Links to snapshots below; feel free to critique the mare as well, and thanks for your help!

    Don't know anything about the Danish Part, but Roman Steps has three champion hunters in Dr. Birdsall.

    Virginia Water was the 2nd dam of Mill Reef. She was by Count Fleet, who was an excellent line for show jumpers.

    Rosemont is in a whole bunch of hunters.

    Edited to add: Mill Reef is one of the most important steeplechasing lines in the world right now, most especially in France. His son, Shirley Heights is the grandsire of Dashing Blade, who is being used on German WBs currently and has made quite a mark.

    I believe Sable Skinflint is also an important jumping line -- I think used by the Holsteiner breeders.

    Nice mare!

    You're absolutely right, Penny. I didn't even glance at the warmblood side. Sable Skinflint was used in Germany. He's by Arctic Star, and, as Stolensilver has made us aware, Arctic Star has been a very prolific line for jumping horses.

    Penny and Viney, a big thanks to you both for sharing your knowledge.

    While we're at it, would anyone pretty please like to take a look at the dam side of my Starman mare? I just added her to my broodmare band this year and I should have thought to add her to my original post. She's in foal for 2011 but stallion suggestions for next year are always appreciated.

    Thanks!
