Falkland Victory

Hello, does anybody know or has heard of a WB/TB mare called Falkland Storm? (By Falkland Victory, out of a TB mare). Also, has anyone had anything to do with any of Falkland Victorys progeny? Do they have any distinguishing characteristics- temperament etc etc?
Any info muchly appreciated!

Yep I've had one.
And have a lot of friends that have them or have had them. Nice paces, generally very good conformation... temperaments leave something to be desired.
Mine was actually intended to remain entire, his paces and conformation were that good. But he ended up being gelded later as his temperament and attitude to work were very average.
I had him as a gelding, he was very unreliable in his work, and if he didn't want to do something, he would often turn dirty to get out of it.

Kayty that doesnt sound great! Were your friends FV's similar with their attitudes? Do you know who broke your fellow in- do you think that could have had anything to do with his unwillingness??

Yep most of them were very similar in attitude, but also came from the same local stud. Talented horses, but the work ethic was not goood enough for what I like. I don't mind hot horses, but horses that put their foot down and turn dirty when they just don't feel like even simply moving off the leg at trot, I don't have the time of day for.

Breakers were all different for all horses. The breaker that did mine is a good breaker, but a few different riders had him after breaking, he bucked an Olympic eventer off and put a top showjumper between his ears. He then went to a local Grand Prix dressage rider and though he didn't buck with her, it was the same lack of work ethic that got to me in the end. He would also get so wound up about resisting that he'd tie up.
Far too much hassle in the end!

Well,reason I asked is I have just brought a just turned 5yo gelding(unbroken), by Jaybee Ambassador out of a FV Mare. We couldn't catch him in paddock when I went to look(not a great start!)But his demeanor was quite calm and seemed relaxed. I guess the only real problem could be when he goes to the breaker(start Feb) how he handles being told what to do and not the free rein he's been accustomed to for 5yrs! Esp since you say the FVs have that tendency to begin with!Beginning to wonder what have I done!

Sounds very much like mine ;) He was the sweetest thing on the ground, and under saddle would give me such amazing work - if he was in the mood. One week I'd be working on his laterals, starting trot half pass and working pirouettes, and the next I wouldn't even be able to do halt - walk - trot transitions without a huge fight and a tendancy to stand on his back legs.

You never know, you might have a good one though, they are quite popular and I think it really depends on the other line.
JB Ambassador is lovely - but I believe he is quite hot as well.

Only time will tell for your boy, best of luck and I hope you got a good one!
