We've come a long way since the end of Oct and now have concrete plans for 4 of 5 mares...
Romancing Rio (Rio Grande/Duerkheim) is going to Goldmaker. Hopefully for a keeper golden filly
Legacy (Salut/Magnet) is going to Ralando II
Belle's Best xx (Quiet Cat/Good Twist) is going to Cunningham
SPS Wega is going back to Balou Du Rouet (back-up is Bliss MF)
Walkabout (Aram/Gondelier) is still up in the air - pending what we end up doing with SPS Wega. Possibly back to Balt'Amour or maybe, just maybe I'll get to use some of the frozen semen I've been collecting

I am so happy to report that Azemieka VDL (Darco x Indoctro) earned her sport predicate and that I have decided to use Harley VDL ! Now should she not take to Harley, I will use Quasimodo van de Molendreef.
Cornetta (Cornet Obolensky x Pilot) is due in May to Brugal. If the foal is what I think it will be, then it's back to Brugal.
Faizemieka (Zirocco Blue x Darco)... will go to Zavall VDL and then it's on to a sport career for her.
Ellamieka (Corland x Darco) is due in May to Cardento... waiting to see how what she produces, but it will either be a sports career or a breeding to Zirocco Blue.
Expecting my first foal in March by Amazing, Rapport x Demeter x Franat mare. Will be bred back to Bliss MF for a 2014 foal. Thinking of a Cobra One breeding in the future as well. Not only do I have a newfound addiction to breeding (reined in by only having 1 mare), but also a major addiction to bay w/ lots of chrome, preferably Balou du Rouet related. Purchased a Banderas colt that is a possible stallion prospect so interested to see her 2 foals by Balou sons to get an idea what I get could get once the colt is old enough and behaved enough to breed. Next purchase will be a big boned TB mare since my breeding goals are to do TB/WB crosses
Quiot the Fashion a homebred TB mare is being bred to Valentino Z
Ella Vondora a homebred TB mare is being bred to Diabolo D'Esquelmes
Altona Marsh a TB mare is being bred back to Figaro B, her 2012 filly is stunning! Might try one more if finances warrant. Looking at another to Diabolo or possibly Romantic Star if he is ok to breed.
Yep, all Ronda's stallions for the 4th year in a row. Love working with her and my foals so far are spectacular.
twinlights - that is so cool! i didnt know his semen was available this year?
also, i would love to see pics/vid of your ridley mare
Yes - Golden State frozen is on its way. Judy Yancey and I are working together. His semen was frozen in November.
There have been ads in the major horse magazines.
There are limited doses - so act fast. His first foal in Germany is due in March!
Golden State - 2012 Bundeschampion & 2014 USDF Horse of the Year
Golden West - 2014 & 2015 Bundeschampion Pony Stallion
Petit Marc Aurel- FEI Dressage Pony Stallion
Pamina VDL Keur (Nimmedore/Lord) to Karandasj Keur
Baelidin CHF (Indoctro/Lidin elite) to Crespo VDL
Lisette (Edison) to Lupicor (Valentino Z as backup)
Ronansact (TB) to Great Pleasure VDL
Nobel Prize ster (Idocus/Amor) to Aram
Zadira prov Keur (Great Pleasure/Best of Luck) to Bliss MF
So the obvious ones are Mildred xx (Absolut') and Sienna (Samba Hit / Convoi) going to Ralando. The surprise is that I am going to breed Mumsy (Corlando / Weltwunder) myself this year... I found out that Vallado/Praise will be available fresh! I'm so excited as I have always wanted to breed her to him, just didn't think it was going to be possible for years to come! My apologies to the people that wanted to breed her - 2014 is MY foal!
I think I have figured out three of the five:
Zavier MV (Trakehner) to Rock Forever
Rosilla (Rosentau) to Sir Donnerhall (a repeat)
Allegra (Autocrat) to Contendro 1 or Romanov. I have one straw of Contendro so am not overly optimistic. If I don't get lucky with that then Romanov it will be
Subject to change of course, but here's the current plan (and breeding season is approaching quickly!).
*Llanarth Ripple (Sec B Welsh) to Clanfair Gold Rush (Sec B Welsh)
Diamonds Are Foreverr (Arabian) to SRW Silver Yankee Doodle Dandy (Sec A Welsh). I keep going back and forth on that one, she's been an AWESOME cross with my black Section A.... but I have this LOVELY stallion here this season... We shall see.
Kate's Unique (TB) to *Rhoson Agano (Sec B Welsh)
Kacey Amulet (Sec B Welsh) to Gayfields Call the Cops (Sec B Welsh)
If I breed S Lesarra again, it will be to Clanfair Gold Rush. I think I want to ride her though.
so hard to decide! What would you buy, oh wise COTH posters?
Nabab de Reve to "sister Lara" (Darco x Voltaire x Jalisco B)? currently in foal to Baloubet du Rouet
V'Tropez to "sister Ella" (Darco x Voltaire x Samber)? currently in foal to Capone 1
Quidam de Revel to "sister Ella"?
and then there's Corland in the tank or breed back to Capone 1... grrr, decisions, decisions. All very first world problems, what?
I know, don't breed what ya can't feed, but it's as addictive as crack, this game is!
