What type of mare would you choose to cross with Zonik? Or what mare did you cross with Zonik? What is he passing along, good and bad? Are there any foal reports for 2012 out there (like the KWPN does?)
And if you did breed to him, how was the semen quality?
Siegi B also should be having a Zonik foal soon. She spoke warmly about this stallion and surely would be pleased to give her insights. We do not breed dressage horses so are not in a position to say much that would be useful to you ourselves.
I tried to have a Zonik foal but didn't have any luck. 2012 was a pretty tough year for me as far as breeding and horses in general were concerned, so I would not blame the semen. At this point I wouldn't hesitate to use Zonik again.

Availability is now the issue. I did inquire about him and was told the semen price was sky-high IF there was any available. The recent sale made these changes in price and availability occur, as it appears the new owners are less interested in breeding and more focused on performance.
I have a 2015 filly by Zonik out of my Rosenthal/Stedinger mare. She has a stellar temperament and is a fabulous mover, but so is my mare. You can see her on my website twinwillows.net. Her name is Zulla TWF. My mare took on one dose.
