    He is looking to be a promising young stallion. He tends to bring lots of leg and power. I noticed many have very good shoulders. Good minds and very good movement for a jumper. He is not known for improving toplines/croup's. I had one a couple of years ago and the new owner is keeping him a stallion for the moment. Here is a picture of him earlier this summer as a yearling.

    and earler as a foal at his inspection where he was tied for the second highest foal scores in the country.

    Here is his breeding.

    I saw a bunch in Germany and some could be a bit heavy, but he is putting nice foals on the ground for sure.

    I would recommend a blooded mare with lots of frame and a good topline that isn't too heavy or too large.

    His first batch was aweful, less then 20%. I did get a pregnancy on the first try, but I was only 1 of 2 that did. He has new semen in at Fox Fire, so it could be better.

    Have a Cardento mare in foal to Connor for 2013. She is a smallish mare and it was a good fit.....we shall see next spring.

    Cheers

    Oo wow Connor x Cardento, that sounds really interesting! I like them both and know them both a bit. Cardento stands at VDL Stud and that is 30 miles from were my parents live, I used to be there every year and I might attend the stallion show next year.
    I think Connor his offspring can be really interesting with the blood of Casall in combination with the full sister to Corrado.
