    Default F-Line Stallion for DeNiro Mare?

    I am daydreaming of breeding my elite eligible DeNiro mare to a Florestan line stallion.

    My mare is already doubled up on the D line, so I'd prefer not to cross to D again. I do love the F and D cross. Every time I admire an F stallion he already has D in the dam line.

    So -

    F-line dressage stallion, no D close up, expressive front leg, elastic back, loves to work, Grand Prix family, and big. That's my wish list.

    I do like Freestyle. This black mare has a good hindleg power and activity already.

    I am not up to speed on what's available on the other side of the pond.

    Fidertanz is a very successful De Niro cross.

    I don't know about big, but I'm breeding a D line mare this year to Furst Piccolo, for all the reasons you listed.

    What about Franziskus? Premium Hanoverian stallion who was 4 y/o Bundeschampion last year. Bloodlines are Fidertanz / Alabaster / Rubinstein I / Grundstein I (no Donnerhall in the pedigree). He is approved for Hanoverian, Oldenburg, Westphalian, and Swedish breeding. Dreamscape carries his frozen, but I don't know if it is proven.

    Perhaps this might help your research.

    You might in particular draw your eye to:

    Florencio (Team Nijhof, frozen semen offered with full live foal guarantee -

    Ferro Rocher (at Revelwood Warmblood stud - He's in Australia offered by frozen semen - you would have to check if they have tested him for import to USA/CAN as I don't know this info off hand.

    Flammengold (Freestyle's full brother living in the UK - Note: Golden Edge Sporthorses in the USA already imports semen from the UK for other stud farms, you can ask them if they would include semen for this boy in their next shipment.


    Florentianer (At Zuchthof Kohn -

    Florentinus V (Gestut Letter Berg -

    Furstenreich (at Brookhouse Stud -

    Then you could look at some grandsons who are particularly lovely:

    Floratio (standing at Celle)
    Fürstbischof - A great-grandson just being developed by Celle.
    Furstenhof - A youngster to watch for in the future, also at Celle.
