just echoing kudos to matt. he's a great, soft-spoken guy who has spent time at the home of chaleon's sire, calido, and who is uniquely knowledgeable in my experience in his educated perspective not just of the holsteiner breed, but specifically of it's merits and uses for the hunter divisions.
he's a great ambassador for the breed in this country that i have enjoyed meeting and discussing holsteiners with on both sides of the pond.
the horse world would be a better place with more like him around.
Matt and I have been friends for a while now and I love what they are currently doing. Holsteiner mares were sent back to Holstein for breeding and more of a concentration of hunters here. I think Matt is very strong in this area and should have great success.
