    Default Bretton Woods vs Don Juan

    Yeah yeah I know Don Juan de Hus is still pretty young to be comparing with anything, but nevertheless....

    Who do you feel would improve the hind leg the most? (conformationaly and in terms of strength and movement).

    How would you compare these superstars?

    Who is carrying Don Juan semen? I haven't found it anywhere? I prefer DJ personally, but haven't seen any foals. BW's size just freaks me out.

    I am in Europe, so its pretty simple getting DJ here... and I have been trying to resist the temptation of using him this year, since my mare is still unproven and so is he. But wow, talk about conformation perfection!

    Might be worth enquiring via Gestuet-WM for Don Juan De Hus

    But going back to the subject, I find they are both quite similar in terms of movement, though DJ is more uphill so you can expect him to be even more powerful in the future. BW has age in his side, and you have a better idea of what you get when you breed to him...

    What kind of mare would you breed to either one? (and specially, what did the mare have to have to take a risk on DJ?)
