    Default Aristos B as a broodmare sire?

    Thoughts on using a mare by him in a hunter breeding program? Mare herself is gorgeous and has a great show record

    Wish there were more people breeding them, they seem to be few and far between. Can you say which mare it is? I'm familiar with a lot of them.

    Hi Horsechick! We've bred a bunch of Aristos mares to a variety of different stallions and so far we haven't had a bad apple. We've bred N-I-C-E mares with great show records - some hunters, some jumpers and even a few eventers - and each foal has been an improvement upon the already lovely dam. We're expecting a Cabardino and a For Pleasure from a pair of full sister daughters of Aristos this spring. I'm really looking forward to these 2. We currently have 2 Disconto weanlings and a Freedom Z yearling (WOW, is she somethin'!) out of the same pair of mares. VERY nice youngsters, all of them.
    Those are just the current kids. Over the years we've bred many, many Aristos daughters to super nice gents and they make wonderful, usually pretty laid back mothers. My own 10 year old insanely athletic homebred is an Aristos grandson. His mama was by Aristos and out of a Consul mare. She was the best mom ever. He fractured 3 carpal bones in one knee when he was about a week old and she was the picture of sweetness and patience all throughout their 3 month prison term while he healed. And he was her first foal at 4 years old!
    I realize I'm terribly biased and I admit that I loved Aristos with all my heart. But I'll also admit that I know his offspring can be a little....difficult....at times early on in their careers. We've found that the second generation are just as talented, with a .....milder....disposition when it comes time to start them in work.

    I know there are some other COTH'ers that have bred their Aristos B mares. Hopefully some will chime in?

    I've been delighted with my yearling filly, by Stony Point Farm's stallion Zealous and out of my former Aristos B mare (now owned by TWF). She has lovely movement and a lovely temperament. She did inherit her momma's "noble" head, which is pretty reminiscent of Aristos' -- only in chestnut. :-) She (the filly) has a a nice big stride, and an even bigger appetite! I can't wait to see what she looks like in a couple of years when she is ready to start work!

    Oh yes, speaking of stride length, all of our Aristos grandkids have that unmistakable Aristos canter. That big, relaxed, rhythmic, rocking horse-style step. And, like lib said, the noble head that the old guy stamped all his get with.
