    Default Quiet TB Stallion in Mid Atlantic?

    I have a friend in Maryland who has a Hanoverian/Percheron mare she wants to breed this spring. Her mare is super sweet and quiet but could use a little refining. She would like to lighten the bone but keep the calm and quiet disposition. Any thoughts?

    Take a look at Default at Little Hawk Farm in Virginia.
    http://www.littlehawkfarm.com/

    I'm sure the owner would be happy to talk with you about whether his stallion would fit your needs.

    Is there a reason she wants to use a stallion in that area? LC is not necessary.

    What does she do with the mare, what does she want to do with offspring? Pics of mare?

    That is a very nice-looking TB.

    I think she wants a local stallion so she can visit and see him in person before breeding. She uses her mare as a personal pleasure horse and will do the same with the baby. She rides Hunters, and does a little showing, a little fox hunting, and a little trail riding. Sorry I don't have a pic. She's a pretty girl. She just has a lot of bone.

    Yes he is very cute! Is Bold Ruler considered to be a good line for hunter/jumpers?

    We'd be happy for your friend to consider our boy--Tiz Brian, by Tiznow. He's got a great disposition, and she's welcome to come visit him! LOL--I love to show him to anyone. I just adore him! We are mainly breeding him for racehorse babies because of his bloodlines, but I'd love for him to have some sporthorse/pleasure babies on the ground too.

    His first foals should be born this week!

    We are in Southern Chester County, PA, right in the corner where Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware meet, so are in the Mid-Atlantic region.

    Here's pictures of him on my facebook. She's welcome to pm/call/email/facebook me anytime if she's interested.

    My stallion Noles has some nice babies on the ground out of various tempered mares. They are very lovely and have great temperaments and jump extremely well.

    Smallwood has no live internet presence at all. If they hope to get customers through Facebook alone and not with a website that can be accessed by a search engine, one would suspect that they are sadly mistaken.

    I do know that the Jones have Castle Cove and had Rock Point for a while, so they must be dedicated to TBs for sport.

    The vet who stands Default is a foxhunter and breeds for foxhunting. He always seems to have a TB stallion in his lineup.

    Sadly I heard that he passed away. A big loss. Fantastic TB stallion with the potential to breed really nice sport horses. Shame he was underutilized.

    PM KBEquine, Carlisle, PA she stands several TB stallions including Canadian Kid who I believe sired an IHF champion. Super nice people.

    Also Harry the Hat stands in PA as well.

    Thank you, Tuckaway! We slept at the barn last night on foal watch. It'll be his first foal to hit the ground (and Polly's third). Can you say excited? LOL

    And had the great Castle Magic. I had one, as did I think most hunter riders in VA at one time, and they were often really nice TBs. Mine did the regular workings and junior jumpers.
