  • pros and cons in regard to breeding to the stallion Jupiter..

    I realize he's on the smaller side. That's not an issue. Anything else?

    Bumping...

    I'm interested too. His website/video look impressive and I saw one of his kids showing in the Jr's last weekend. I'd love to know more!

      I've had two and loved them both. Mine were out of a big, old-style TB mare. The gelding matured about 16.2 and the mare is right around 16hh. There is some blood in the Zeus line so I wouldn't necessarily pick a mare that was a hothead. They jumped really, really well...

        Can you comment on them conformationally? Movement?

          Sure-
          Conformationally they were both very correct and both were out of a very correct dam. Both of mine were very nice hunter type movers. I can't say how much of that was Jupiter as the mare was also a very good hunter mover.

          Honestly I would have another one..I was happy with mine....especially since my younger mares now get a nice dose of quiet from Palladio. I personally would choose a bigger, more medium type mare...I picked my Gonzo mare to breed to Zeus this year and she is the type that I would picture would also cross well on Jupiter...heavier but not heavy. Just my opinion. There are pics of the mare I crossed and the foals at http://www.crestlinefarm.com/brood_reba.htm
          and http://www.crestlinefarm.com/1997.htm
          and http://www.crestlinefarm.com/00jetta.htm

          I was going to use him on my Palazzo Civena mare but she wound up selling...ahh well...

            The ones I have seen have had very pretty heads and necks and jumped very well.

              I was also looking for info on Jupiter a few weeks ago, I am interested in buying some frozen to have for one of my mares.

              I sent an email and I called and left a message for his owner last week but have not heard back for them yet....

              I hope I hear something soon or I will have to move on.....

                  chef jade had a Jupiter mare that was a beautiful mover and had a wonderful jump that she showed with much success. She was a lovely mare. Maybe she will log in here and give more details.

                        I was at Devon a couple years ago and friend and I about fell out over a lovely pony in a class, especially its way of moving.

                        The sire? Jupiter. We loved, loved, loved it.

                        The pony won the class, by the way.

                          We have a Jupiter granddaughter on the farm. She just arrived, but I'll get photos and video clips posted next week. She is Escapade / Jupiter, a bit small, but a very nice hunter type.

                            I have a Jupiter broodmare - gorgeous head and a great jump. She was truly the hack winner. I also sold a Jupiter baby and he's just turned three. He is also a fantastic mover and I expect him to be able to jump. Oh, and they both are very sweet, kind horses.

                            I met one of Joy's grooms from when she was showing and he said even as a young horses there was no prep, she was always easy.

                            I think it is a shame Jupiter was not utilized more. He has a lot to offer.

                                I LOVE Jupiter, but I always had smaller type of mares so he wasn't a great choice for me. I would really like to utilize him eventually somehow.

                                      I've had two Jupiters babies...

                                      Justice is a Jupiter baby, and I inherited another from a friend. I used to ride with ChefJade and we, along with another family in our barn, bought our babies from Cindy right around the time Jupiter was sold to Lindsey.

                                      Having been at Cindy's farm and looked a A LOT of Jupiter babies crossed to different types of mares, I would say that Jupiter stamps his get remarkably well. They were all well put together, great movers, and AMAZING jumpers. Justice is out of a Canadian Warmblood mare named Monsoon, and he was the quietest of all the ones I've ridden.

                                      I have not seen a lot of big Jupiter babies, although I know there are some out there. Justice has a HUGE step and handled the first years with no problem (at just two shows before I got pregnant ), and all of the ones I've known could jump the moon.

                                      Here's a link to one of his baby pictures:

                                      And here's a link of him in the 3'3", not even using himself yet:
                                      http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1116521576

                                      Here he is coming into his own in the First Years:
                                      http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1116521576

                                      I can't say enough good things about this stallion, and I wish he were used more. Not enough short people, I guess.
