    Rotspon has great semen quality. Sorry I don't know about the rest...

    Are you breeding for hunters?

    I know folks with foals from all of those stallions except Rouge..

    I had an Emillion/Corland mare who was imported - she was a pro ride all the way.

    What about Livello? He seems to be attracting attention from Hunter breeders

    I have used Couleur Rubin and Livello both successfully. I really like both and the Couleur Rubin was actually sold to a dressage rider. He has the jump and very good movement also. The Livello is just a weanling but she is definitely a keeper!! Good luck

    I'm a huge Livello fan and think with the right mare he would make fantastic hunter foals.

    Hackinaround - I am very pleased with my Livello filly. There are some pics from her inspection here http://rance.smugmug.com/Equestrian/...676537_4xmGPkW Of course she is pretty funky looking as she turns grey!!

    He had been on my long list but Ive never seen any US foals....quite tempting. Do you have a picture of your couleur rubin?

    That's a very diverse group of stallions. I have known several Rotspon offspring (all dressage horses, but I hear he produces hunters as well.) They are all uniformly nice elastic movers, not a lot of knee, wonderful temperaments. He can throw all over the place with size though. I've seen a few really tiny ones and some huge ones. The semen quality is excellent.

    All of the Emillions that I have ridden have been quite sensitive and have had plenty of spice, perhaps something to stay away from if breeding for the hunter ring.

    I also recommend looking into Livello, I have seen one foal by him bred by a local breeder and was very impressed. The foal was long lined like daddy with a beautiful head.

    I concur with this.. I would not breed to Emillion for a hunter foal..

    Livello I think is a much better choice.

    Here is a pic of the Couleur Rubin. Its the only one I could find and he is a little "scruffy" as he was living outside. I think he is a long 2 yr old and you can get the general impression. Good luck https://picasaweb.google.com/1129773...85448684792914

    Forgot to add. He does not have the "white eye thing" he is just looking back.
