"Temptation - 1990
Bay 16.2h 1/2 Trakhner mare by the Trakehner Troubadour out of Double Test xx, a registered ATA Anglo-Trakehner. Her breeding on both sides reads like a dream: Maharadscha who goes back to Fetisz ox Sir Galahad, Man of War, Blenheim on the lower side. She passes size and a spectacular trot to her foals.
Her owner is taking her to an auction in 2 weeks. I am going to try and get someone down there to pick her up if she is truly in danger, but I would rather not add another horse to my herd permanently.
Please PM for further information, and feel free to spread the word!
I know nothing about Trakehners, but I can do google searches and I'm stunned with this particular female family.
Google "Double Test" and "Roman Bath" and just sit back.
While I'm not a fan of the father/daughter breeding technique used, it does appear that Double Test has been a great producer. I have no less than three of her dauthers (Nasera, Matura, and Temptation) and all have been great mothers. Bred by Edith Kosterka (a big name in ATA breeding??)
She is from very good lines. I have spoken to the (new) owner of the mare you saw listed, and she is very nice. Temptation has a gelding son who is also successfully competing. I have had numerous people call and email to tell me that they knew Temptation, and Double Test xx as well. By all accounts, they are/were both very good producers.
She has not found a home yet, but I have offered to pay for shipping and take her here for the time being. She was being offered along with a well-broke little arab gelding, and I have a friend who is taking the gelding for his son. He has also offered to keep Temptation at his farm on pasture for me, at no cost, as long as I provide feed, etc. Once she arrives, I will have her vetted and get good conformation photos and update the thread. She should be here within a week or so...
