    Default Candyman babies

    Looking at a Candyman-and by JC mare Last Rose of Summer gelding that's just coming 3-
    anyone know much about Candyman and how his babies are-what he throws etc??? I've heard the Salute babies are super talented but quite arrogant but wondering if Candyman is like that.

    My daughter's Junior Hunter, VanGogh, was by Candy Surprice (who was by Candyman). I understood they were thought to be difficult- yep. Ours was very sensitive and intelligent, beautiful mover and jumper- a wonderful, ,kind partner once he got going and through some rough spots, but he was extremely difficult to start.

    Maybe not the same stallion?

    The Great, uh, Green (?!?!) North!


    Do you mean the Candyman that stood locally that JvD owned...? Fairly young horse with a few babies on the ground? (I think they ended up gelding him if it's the same one...)
