Here is the link to Fabuleux's breeder. They had Fabuleux and I believe 3 or 4 full sisters. Their horses have been extremely successful. There is a Weltmeyer mare in my area out of a full sister to Fabuleux, and she is really fantastic. Anyways, this could give you some ideas Oh, and I am VERY jealous that you have a Fabriano! I've wanted one for a very long time.
Some of the Fabriano's tend to be a little heavy. Crossing with a stallion like Bonifatius (Bellissimo / Lauries Crusader xx) would lighten up the mix. In the US, Benidetto would also be a good choice.
Check out one of my broodmares named Elite Mare Fhrance (Fabriano/SPS Wonderful) on my website- www.rollingstonefarm.com. She has had 2 foals by my stallion, Shakespeare RSF (Sandro Hit/Arrian/Pablo/Saloniki). Shotgun, her 2009 colt is being raised by me as a stallion prospect and her 2010 filly named Shyriana is, in my opinion, a big ring dressage prospect. They were both premium foals at their GOV inspection. Fhrance is back in foal to Shakespeare RSF for 2011.

Hey, you guys are great- thanks! Dan, Mo, your mares are beautiful! My girl is imported and her dam was a TB by a sire approved Trak and Han. Still researching that line a bit. She is a big mover, though a little flat kneed and a nice round frame.So it looks like Fabriano does well with the Donnerhall and w-line? Ive seen a few by Florestan sons/grandsons...
Two names are getting mulled over; Sir Donnerhall ($$) and Florencio ( ?) She is new to me, so you know how it is.. looking for the tried and proven nicks..
Thanks! I see the Escudo II there...I went back to the Celle stallion site and looked at Embassy whose damsire is Fabriano, but then saw the sire of that mare was Singular Joter. I think Im just confusing myself now lol! Dont you wish it was just an exact science ?!
I love Londonderry, have one coming this spring. Maybe its the Warkant coming through.. hmm
I saw don index in verden, not quite sure what to think
As I like the breeding a lot. Seems (surprisingly) a bit difficult and have heard others say the have seen the same in other places. On the other hand, is just a baby still
Let md know if you use him, and what the outcome!
