Just bred my Popeye K mare to Banderas today.
I bred her to him two years ago and got an absolutely stunning filly that was a First Premium and won some championships showing on the line. She's tall (15 hh as a yearling), elegant and has a great temperament.
Hoping for another like her!
I have mixed emotions about breeding any longer, but it is tough to just quit. I love the offspring that my mares have had and would use the same stallions again if I had more time. I am trying 2 new ones and both are frozen. I have never had luck so this is my last shot:
Baronicelli to Donna Castania( Don Crusador/Wonderland)
Rob Roy to Bellissima( Benidetto/Don Crusador)
My fresh backups are Sinatra Song and I don't know!!!!
I am willing the frozen to work...

I am breeding both my tbs to FE Coppertop (CSH by Salut) Both to him with slightly different goals. But this spring I have been lucky enough to work with some of his offspring by various types of mares.
I have made a decision to breed one mare to Freestyle. She had a lovely colt by him who is now showing a lot of talent as a five y.o. in dressage. For my other mare I'm using either Comic Hilltop or Denario; I'm still not sure about that one.
You won't be disappointed with your Freestyle foal, I've never met one that isn't gorgeous and gregarious. Comic is a gorgeous stallion. Very nice choice. I would love to find some of his frozen for next year.
This year, I'm going with:
Freestyle (Florestan I-Parademarsche) to White Heather (White Star-Allround)
Banderas (Balou du Rouet-Grannus-Beach Boy) to Nidoeschka (Belisar-Actueel-Nabuur)
Dannebrog (Don Schufro-Brentano II) to Royal Dawn (Royal Senna-Sepoy xx)
Royal Blend (Rubinstein-Lauries Crusador xx) to Wailea (Westporte-Belisar)
Sagnol (Sandro Hit-Landadel) to Nicole (Bernstein-Maraton)
Painted Holly (TB) to Cartier R - in foal
Brightest Gold (TB) to CrinRouge - not in foal, bred back to my TB stallion Noles, check in 9 days.
Mighty Zene (TB) to Valentino Z - check today
Mighty Spirit (TB) to Diabolo d'Esquelmes - bred Wednesday
