    Default Warmblood Stallion

    Looking for input on picking the right warmblood stallion to use for my mare. I have an OTTB chestnut mare about 16-16.2h registered, good bloodlines very nice mare quiet, good mover excellent conformation.... perfect broodmare. I am looking for that stallion that will just improve on her qualities not necessarilly looking to breed for hunter/jumper or dressage more interested in producing an athletic, good conformation, with an excellent brain (a must) foal. Would appreciate some stallions to look into. Thanks

    Default Sir Sinclair!

    I hate to sound like a broken record (if you research my past posts), but you can't get much better than Sir Sinclair. I know him personally ans well as many of his offspring including my coming 5 year old homebred mare. Sir stamps his get (which is why he has won "Get of Sire" 3 or 4 years in a row at Dressage at Devon). Most look like thoroughbreds or TB crosses. Super friendly, intelligent, willing, and extremely athletic. The Sirs are more of a Sport Horse type rather than an uphill dressage type. They excel in dressage, eventing and the hunter world. My Sir can have 10 days off and I can just get on her and ride her in the wind on the top of my hill. She has very little mileage due to extreme growthiness and alot of time off, butshe already has an incredible work ethic. The Sirs can be a chalenge to fit for a saddle and they are almost too smart. I always say that if mine were a dog, she'd be a Golden Retriever. More of a dog personality than a horse. If you want more information you can get Iron Spring Farm's free DVD. There you can see Sir and many of his offspring. If you want something athletic, supple, capable, kind, and FUN, he's the ticket. Please feel free to PM me for more information. I'm sure I've bored everyone on COTH to tears with my posts on Sir so I'll give it a rest.

    I bred a mare just like yours to Coromino and loved the outcome.

    I'll throw out an Irish Draught Steeped in Luck- dressage I1 and long listed for the Candian Olymipic team. He will give you bone, jump and movement along with a good brain.

    We have a super Darco stallion who would cross nicely with a TB mare. He offers bone, power, balance and lots of jump and he's a sweetie pie!He is approved with BWP and you can see him on our site... Hidalgo Va De Molenberg.

    Happy hunting!

    Default Look at Gauguin du Cheval

    Gauguin du Cheval crosses well with TB mares. The offspring have great conformation, routinely jump 5' and have all been Class One foals with "9" gaits. They are lovely horses and very athletic.

    See www.teamgauguin.com

    Ironman crosses exceptionally well with TBs. He is very ami-friendly as well as easy to train and work with, traits he passes on to his offspring. Ironman is a very versatile sire, he has offspring winning in all disciples.

    YES. YES, to Ironman. I have a coming yearling, she is so kind and people oriented. Plus she is gorgeous. I am so looking forward to two year from now when I can ride her. Her dam is TB, and Ironman gave her more bone, substance and a wonderful temperment , plus gorgeous gray color! She is also a 10+ mover.. Watch for her in Hunter Breeding this year.

    NSM is one of the best, most knowlegeablen and honest horsewomen you can meet.

    If you are interested in Darco blood, check out Valentino Z. His offspring out of TB mares have scored Premium across registries. Valentino Z competed internationally with Judy Ann Melchior as well as in the US with a Junior at 1.40m. Lots of repeat breeders . He reliably puts a great top line, movement, jump and temperament on his offspring.

    I 2nd Ronda on Valentino Z. My 2011 filly pictured below is out of a 16.1 1/2 hands TB mare. She is HUGE and very nicely put together in my opinion. I have another Val baby due in the next 30 days and one of my boarders was so impressed with the 2011 filly that she bred her fancy breeding stock paint mare to him. She is due mid to late April. I am breeding one more to him this year,the full sister to this one's mother.

    I would love to hear more about your mare's pedigree and see pictures of her. We have had several nice foals by Escapade out of our 2 TB mares. We decided last year to cross one of them to Amazing and she is due in less than 2 months. All the foals I have seen by him so far are very nice. I am hoping for a keeper filly from that cross.
    More information on these two boys can be found at
