I'm so excited for breeding season this coming year. I have a few broodmares, warm blood and TB, and have been contemplating very hard on who to breed them to. Most stallions I like are very expensive, a few thousand dollars and frozen is even more with no grantee.
I came across the stallion a Grand Prix show jumper "High Five WW" and I really like him he's BLACK, 16.3 hands, star and a snip, refined and elegant. He was imported from Hungary after competing in Europe as a 4 and 5 year old in the jumping ring to Florida for the W.E.F. circuit where he was ridden by Olympic Champion Chris Kapplerand and had a great Grand Prix career. His pedigree is amazing as well, some big names such as Ulft KWPN Keur stallion (The #1 dressage stallion of 1999 and 2000), Ronald for years a most popular stallion used in Holland and Germany for breeding dressage and show jumpers(G Ramiro Z his sire), Ramzes Juniro who is from the famous line Ramzes X who basically sired all of Germany's most famous Warmbloods and half of the "C" line (Capitol, etc), and Rittersporn. He is being offered right now for just his collection fee of $250!!! Unbelievable normally I would be paying a lot, A LOT, for blood lines like these plus the foundation sires bloodlines are getting pushed back further and further now days in a horses pedigree so it is harder to get unless you go frozen and then I'd doubt it would even be still good. For $250 it's worth it!
My question is though my Holsteiner mare I own and wish to breed also has a similar pedigree, she is by Rocadero who is by L Ronald, which is very close to "High Five WW's" bloodlines... Should I breed them together? Would this be a too close in pedigree or would this make an exceptional Rock Star show jumper? All ear's Thanks !
