I have a friend who has a Grand Prix dressage mare in foal to him. I'm planning on using him this or next year. I met my mare's breeders in Germany, they are still active breeders and have her dam and full and half sisters. I asked who they would recommend for her, it was Bordeaux!
I think he's a gorgeous stallion with a fabulous pedigree.
However. We had a thread when he first was approved, and I recall that he was approved despite having OC on his X-rays (OC is the bone lesion without the fragment, which would be OCD). I realize that's not totally uncommon in horses, but usually the KWPN does not approve them. I'm curious if he's been in consistent work or if he primarily breeds...and how sound he is if he's stayed in work. Also curious about his offspring's radiographs. I think he had a least a couple of sons licensed this year.
