2. Please be kind. I have dial up so research is not so easy, hence I am asking here to shorten my search time.
Friend has a nice reg Old. mare. She was premium filly at her inspection. Sire is Regazzoni dam is a 1/2 TB by Donnerkiel,(Han). The mare is a lovely mover, she is >17h, she has a nice jump. The owner is thinking of breeding the mare to a jumper bred stallion.
What stallion would be *your* pick for a mare like this?
Also, does anyone know about the Hol. stallion Cormint?
You can't pick a stallion based on bloodlines alone. You would need to tell us her strengths and weaknesses in conformation, temperament, and under saddle, and also what discipline your friend is breeding for. Pictures are usually helpful, as well.
Hey Brenda! Is your friend looking to produce a eventer or a jumper? Do consider Pablo for an eventer as he has produced offspring at the grandprix level of dressage and jumping (something like 10 GP dressage and 40 GP jumpers and many approved stallion sons). I had wanted wanted to bred Cora to him years back. He is supposed to be very fertile too which is always helpful! http://www.rainbowequus.com/Pablo.htm
Lots of other potential boys. Look at foxfirefarm.us . I have a Linaro son our an Ariadus mare who is a total doll, moves better than Pacifec, and so far free jumps great (he's 3). I would look at Linaro and Limoncello for eventers (movement and jump) and Quinar for his super jump (tends to not increase size beyond the mare's, so a good size mare is pefect for him). Like many Quidam de Revel sons, he consistenly throws very althletic jumpers. They don't list it on their website, but I think all of their stallions are approved oldenburg-na.
You can also look at Dutch horses since they will give KWPN papers if you breed a mare from an approved registry to a stallion approved in Holland. Here are a couple of my drool stallions (throw movement and jump potential): http://www.vdlstud.com/paard/3/1/120...n/boss-vdl.htm
the vdl horses are available through majesticgaitsfarm.com for about $400 dose with a LFG with 3 dose purchase.
Also consider Zambesi (also kpwn). He is offered through team nijnhof.
These four stallions all have SUPER foal reports from KWPN. This is where KWPN inspects around 10 or more of their offspring from various breeders and report the uniformity, strength and weaknesses of the foals. The four stallions are on my short list for the mare we are trying embryo transfer from this spring.
