Starting to make some plans. But there is still lots of time to change my mind!
Quinar to the Kannan/Losander/Caletto II mare,
DiQuattro DSF (Diarado/Quattro/Pilot) to the Namelus R/Polydox/Joost mare
??? to the Goodtimes/Calvados/G. Ramiro Z daughter.
Rebreed to Parco or Zavall (depending on this years foal), Catoki or Crelido? Too many choices.
After reading the 5 previous pages of crosses from COTHers I am wowed. Each year the crosses that COTHers are breeding get better and better!
As breeding season approaches, our short list includes:
Julia du Brio (Diamant Rouge II x Kapoc) Peter Leone's former FEI GP mare to Olympic Ahorn
Kasierin (Kaiser de la Cour x Lantaan) the dam of the Top Jumper foal at the FL KWPN-NA Inspection to Escudo I
Czola (Alla 'Czar x Chica's Prince) the dam of the KWPN Top Hunter foal in NA for 2012 to Rollando II
Stamroos W (Heartbreaker x Ramiro) to Vegas (Voltaire x Joost)
Ana Bella (Condios x Ekstein) Monica's former 1.20m jumper. Perhaps Catoki, Quasimodo van de Molendreef or Olympic Ahorn. For Ana, we are looking for something that will add size and power, while keeping some refinement in type.
Ultra-niki (Calvados x Ulysses m2s) Dam of the Leading Yearling going into the Young Horse Show series 2012 Finals.
. For Niki, we are looking for a refining stallion with blood and good rideability.
Here is a link to video of my 2012 Catoki colt's Inspection.
I have bred 3 full siblings and really love Catoki. I sold him and his sister in foal to the Celle Stallion Valentino (Now or Never). EM Cela slipped a Quite Easy foal at about 8 months. I can only think of one other year that I did not have any foals. :0( The good news is
EM Donata. Donnerhall/Quasi Roi. To Dante Weltino. ET
De Luxe. Dirano/Derwisch. To Fabriano
EM Cela Contender/Sao Paulo. To ?? Or leave open?
Good luck to all with your breedings and foals. 🍀💎

I have a breeding to any one of Dreamscape Farms horses and decided to breed my mare Keepsake (Fidertanz/Schampus) to Sir Gregory. My other mare Roanne TWF (Rosenthal/Stedinger) I'm leaning toward Don Frederic or Zonik. Both are maidens so plans could change after seeing their first foals in March.
Leilani (Londonderry/Evergreen) to Fuerst Romancier
Winterwick (Rhodium/Don Primaire) to Connaisseur
Roxsand VA (Rosentau/Weltmeyer) to Sir Donnerhall II
Clair de Lune (Bernstein/Asterix) to Freestyle
Fawn (Freestyle/Mascaro GF) to Bon Balou
Rio's Lucia (Rio Grande/Continue) - Custom Foal to Peter Pan
De La Luna (Drosselklang x Don Juan) - Custom Foal to Weltmeyer
Lana (Landor S x Graphit) - Custom Foal to Arezzo VDL
Past Reflections (P.S Pamiro x Tamarack II) - If not booked for a custom foal will be bred to Banderas.
I'll be breeding SPS Diorella (Donnerhall/ Akut) to Sir Gregory. I'm super psyched about this cross, since my first goal with this mare is to essentially try to clone her, so linebreeding to Donnerhall seems the next best thing! Also, I adore my 2011 Sir Gregory filly and would love love love another. Now, getting the mare to settle may be another story...
