    Default Check out these Totilas babies!

    In case you have nothing better to do while the wind blows, here are a bunch of Totilas baby videos to enjoy.

    Starting with my favorite, the 2013 filly "Thrill Me" (maybe I was fooled by the music, but I think she looks just like her dad)

    I'm pretty sure "Mystery foal" is Cathrin Schlemper's colt Top Gun! Super nice horse; sold to Russia last year I believe

    Those foals had very nice, elegant trots! (At least from what can be seen... I don't know about that last one)

    Thanks for posting!

    Not wanting to Hijack a thread, but I do have a question- is Sandro Hit a male or female? Google says he is a male, but some of two of these foals are Totilas X Sandro Hit... Are they just listing two of the sires or are there two Sandro Hits?

    I think they are indicating that the dam's sire is Sandro Hit.

    Wow - Glad I`m not the only one. Wow she is one fancy filly.

    Sandro Hit is the Dam's sire for Take It Easy.

    Last I heard 5,000 euros per dose frozen + VAT and shipping.

    But I don't think he is breeding this year so that may have an impact on the price.

    I'd be wary of a Sandro Hit/Totilas cross. SH offspring are known for being super hot and some are crazy. Gal was scared the firsti time he saw Totilas- crazy at times in his younger years and still know to be hot. SH also tend towards funky hind ends so it would really depend on how the baby grows. See lots of lovely moving babies but not all turn into lovely moving adults. And someone has to ride the things.

    Take Heart will grow into those legs, and her back will lengthen out, right? (I know nothing about how babies grow up, so forgive my ignorance!)

    I will take your comments with a grain of salt. There are many Sandro Hit offspring that are not "super hot", and in fact, many are owned and ridden by amateur owners. They can often be somewhat forward and sensitive, but those are traits treasured by most UL riders. And I don't think Gal was afraid of Totilas because he was "crazy" but because he was a powerful young stallion, and like all young horses - esp. stallions - he had moments where he liked to display his power. As for funky hind ends on the Sandro Hit offspring - as in what? The most often heard comments about them is that they are a bit weak in power and don't have great sit ability, and they also tend to move wide behind at trot, esp. when pushed as youngsters to display their "brilliance".

    And that said, it is my understanding the Totilas / Sandro Hit cross is very, very popular, both here and in Europe. In fact, I have heard that it is Sandro Hit, Jazz, and De Niro mares that are used most often with Totilas. (And Jazz definitely outshines Sandro Hit in the "hot and crazy" department. )

    I have seen some pretty funky walks on SH offspring. His own walk scores are around 5, IIRC. The same is true for many (though certainly not all) of his sons.

    It isn't a bloodline I seek out unless it has something else pretty special to complement it. JMO.

    nhwr - SH wouldn't have been approved if his walk score had been a 5...... neither would have any of his sons. Just saying.....

    I agree that the babies are lovely. However, with the first one, with trotting and cantering loose on a wet and paved road with road signs that was probably slippery, did anyone else have a quick vision of a slip, fall, and snap of one those lovely little legs cross their mind?

    The breeder/handler is far braver than I would be.

    Betonbill - yes, I just thought the exact same thing! Also thought the footing in the videos of the several colts and fillies looked deep.

    For whatever reason, I'm biased towards the fillies - Love the name "Thrill Me" and thought she was darn nice, also liked the last two - would love to see more footage of mystery foal..
