    Default Quaterback

    Is this stallion suited to a lighter type mare who needs a more powerful hock?

    Lighter type mare should suite him well but he's not exactly known for producing a strong hindend. He makes compact types with nice rounded bums but the hindleg and really needs to come from the dam. The ones from not so strong mares tend to move more rocking left to right vs. stepping under in a quick and powerful way. Just my 2cts

    Looking at photos of his foals. Sorry do not have direct access to see him but the good thing on photos is if you look at enough you get a snap shot. He looks like he doesn't stamp his foals, I have see many where the contribution of the mare is very evident and not in a good way. The mares neck, head, top line and back end in particular. With a good mare the foal is great with a so so mare mmm. To me you need a mare with all qualities before you choose him.

    I'd be inclined to go with old Quattro himself then if you like the breeding. He has clearly proven himself over the years in both dressage and jumping and I liked the brains on the ones I've worked with a lot.

    Is Quattro B available via frozen? He is showing on the Oldenburger Hengstverteilungsplan as available only via fresh cooled.

    Yes, Rideauwood farms carries his frozen. I believe Doug had a foal by him via the frozen semen.
