Decisions fro 2013 ? Oups I don't even have the exect due date in my head for 2013 let alone thinking hard.
I have many ideas floating:
Don Principe (yep frozen over here) on my Sandro Hit
Benetton Dream (I have frozen as it was not sure what will happen to him competition and breeding wise) on my Florencio for a fourth edition of that cross.
My A-line Hanoverian bred mare Ajawaan (Arkansas/Abrupt) is currently expecting another sport pony cross with Alvesta Picasso and then we will try her with Daventry's Power Play in 2013...looking forward to that cross
Baelidin CHF (Indoctro/Lidin elite) to Crespo VDL
Lisette (Edison) to Lupicor
Ronansact (TB) to Great Pleasure VDL
Nobel Prize ster (Idocus/Amor) to Jim Town (Darco)
Zadira prov Keur (Great Pleasure/Best of Luck) to Balou du Roeut
I always feel like I'm tempting fate when I answer in this thread, but I'm so excited about next years possibilities that I just can't help myself!
Selina KWPN sport: (Mermus R-Wokina pref. pres. elite- Nimmerdor x Uppercutt) has a date with Triple X. We have waited two years for this opportunity
La Ina 18 NSP: (Libero H x Voltaire x Sandro) will ET with Balou du Ruet. This will be our first ET attempt so we will see how that goes!
La Ina 18 will also carry a Toulon (had always liked this Heartbreaker son, and loved Ohlala when I saw her go at indoors this year!)
Obsession TW (Canaletto x Carthago) we are still up in the air. Want to add french lines so still debating on her hubby. Tangelo, Emerald, and Du Gateau (Laudanum x Ibrahim) are on the short list at the moment.
And possibly use our Diktator dose on Ucinda (Lux x Concorde x Ramiro) for an ET as she is back in work and headed to Thermal this year in the jumper ring.
2013! still recovering from this year although may take the easy route and go with the same plan again.
Naheez x Ideal Water - in foal to Cavalier Royale
Cruising x Parkmore Night - in foal to Cavalier Royale
Guidam x Naheez x Ideal water - in foal to Balou du Rouet
Kings Master x Cavalier - Carring a Cruising x Mermus R (ET)
Naheez x Ideal Water - may try again to Cavalier Royale
Cruising x Parkmore Night - ET one for Balou du Rouet and in foal to Cavalier
Guidam x Naheez x Ideal water - Winningmood or Spartacus
Kings Master x Cavalier - Pointilliste (TB) for definite next year
As of right now my plan is to breed my Fidertanz mare to Diamond Hit. She has very long legs and a great neck set so I think that would be a good cross.
I'm still undecided about my other mare. They are both maidens and are due in mid-March so I'm waiting to see what they produce.
Yes! Your Hildalgo Hyperion. Liking that baby and I think you have a fantastic eye. I need a fresh stallion for that mare. Schonfeld E Trakehner mare
Thank u! We put him with a small blooded mare who jumped 1.60m int'l and she was very good to us for the foal she produced. The filly was small at first, but has grown in strength and size proportionately.
The problem with Darco offspring, is that they show a lot of bone and size initially. They also take several years to produce to a stage where they finally get a chance to show off their power. This can be an issue in a market that loves results early on.
The upside is that these types from Darco tend to be very solid, safe and reliable horses in sport. The exact type that does very well for the sales market in NA. With a little patience, Darco blood is top!
Thank you for considering Hidalgo!

I am breeding my Freestyle mare Fawn to Bon Balou
My Swedish Warmblood mare Clair de Lune to Connaisseur
My Londonderry mare I would love to do an ET to Freestyle and then have her carry another by if not I will do frozen with her. Just not sure who yet.
My KWPN mare by Rhodium to ? Still in the works on that one..
I usually have the list made and ready to go by now. But with Wendell (and I have to admitt, even myself) saying it is time to downsize after 2013, the decisions are so important!
EM Rotina(Rotspon/Argentinus) will be a forever "wife" to Don Princpe. With two offspring winning the USDF "Traveling Trot"pepetual for highest scoring horse in the country and several otheres being either Champion or Reserve for their age groups over the years, it would be unwise to change this match.
Royal Gem (Royal Diamond/SPS Contender) open this year will go to Doctor Wendell MF(Don Principe/Sandro HIt). I think this cross is going to deliver a top quality GP prospect. All of the Prince offspring from this cross are in the hands of top riders who envisons such a future for them.
Diora(DeNiro/Grande) is in foal to Fidertanz and I expect probably will be again. The previous offspring are a bit older style but very powerful with three super gaits and wonderful minds. I think this cross is as much a recipe for FEI success as one gets. For next year, I do not know, maybe back to Fidertanz or Viscount(Valentino) if available. nbeeds more leg and better type along with more "flash" for yh classes.
EM Rising Star MF(Rotspon/Ramiro Son II) is expecting a Doctor Wendell MF for 2013. Will wait to see what this one looks like before making a decision. Mare is a top quality producer but inconsistant with what her foals look like and what the gaits will be. All are very good quality but some are standouts to their full siblings. Tend to go to the same stallion 3 times before moving onto another. HAs had 3 Don Principe and 3 Quaterback.
Doc is in the running at the top for sure but other considerations for her are Furstenball, Viscount.
EM Fuerst Dancer (Fuerst Heinrich/Rotspon)[Maestro's mom] open this year, lost 2 ETs with the recips. Don Principe all the way!
EME Diamond Girl MF(Don Principe/Royal Diamond)in foal to His Highness
Had a Fidertanz, very nice. Again, no very solid direction with this mare. She has almost everything I like in a mare but want more"flash" in the trot.
EMC Duet MF (Don Principe/Rotspon) expecting an ET Sir Donnerhall but Bennetton Dream for the next one and then For Compliment

I am desperately hoping that my planned breeding works out - I'd like to put my TB mare Step Aside to the Connemara stallion Silver Shadow. My mare can jump a house, is as sweet as pie, but is a tough ride. Silver Shadow is reputed to have a wonderful temperament, looks very ridable in all his video, and is a jumping machine. He's got Carna Bobby in his lineage at least 6 times, and is out of Poetic Moonlight, by the incredible Poetic Justice, so comes by the jumping ability honestly! I'm hoping the resulting foal will be my next jumper - I am crossing my fingers for an adorable 15.2 hh, sweet TBXConnie cross that can jump like its parents. I know it's not in the same realm as what many of you are trying to breed for, but I will just be ecstatic if things work out!
