    Default Trying to get a "jump" start on the 2012 breeding season

    Trying to find a match for my mare for 2012 breeding season unfortunately had two stallions fall through for the the 2011 breeding season. Is she worth breeding again?
    I'm breeding for myself and a particular trainer but want to be able to sale it if it isn't what we want. Goal is to breed a jumper that can compete at top level such as Wellington, Devon, etc... Mare has a performance record although didn't make it as far as she should of due to my budget at the time but very athletic. She does have one foal on the ground that I bred a lovely two year old. I think she has a good pedigree?! http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/heather+starr

    She is in the premium mare book for both Oldenburg & Rheinlander.

    Great mind especially now that is more mature although it wouldn't hurt to improve her canter. Not dead set on breeding her again but would love a "home brew" if it was in the cards. Any thoughts?

    Not that I know a ton about breeding jumpers, but Landkoenig is the first one that came to mind when I saw your mare. She is lovely, BTW. I've know three Landkoenig babies, and they were all fantastic. He gives an excellent temperament and height, from what I've seen.

    First let me say, I love your mare! She reminds me of my Ferro mare (yours has a better head and more refined) as far as her shoulder and hip angles are concerned as well as topline and way neck ties in. This being said, my Ferro mare is out of a Saluut I mare and even though she has beautiful dressage movement and has been bred and produced dressage foals, I also knew she had an amazing jump and wanted to breed her to a jumper stallion last year. I chose Laroche (standing at Hilltop Farm, KWPN stallion). His bloodlines and confo seemed a perfect match and the resulting foal was absolutely gorgeous. I just took her to Ironspring Farm keuring last Thursday and she received a First Premium in the foal jumper class!!! I currently have my Hemmingway mare infoal to Laroche (she's a retired eventer). She shows more blood than the Ferro mare and a bit hotter but Laroche has an amazing temperament so I'm hoping for another Firsat Premiium next year. Best wishes to you and again, love your mare!
