Did you see the El Dorado babies out of TB and Arab mares?......drool..........

I like the pinto better and better, the more I look at him. Not because of the color....I'm not a huge pinto fan. He's just a good horse.
Jamestown I find a bit coarse....my personal taste, tho.

I'm not 100% sold on El Dorado... however I do really like what Mirabeau and his offspring... but still leaning towards Arts Aero. Too many choices!! Lol

Now you've posted the pic of your mares sire I'm veering to good boned TB, I think you could end up with something too chunky for eventing if not, they have to have that ability to really stretch out to get out of trouble on the X Country phase and the TB is so good at doing that
We bred from a quite dainty 15.2 TB and every one of her foals was big boned and tall even the one by a 14.2 Welsh cob!!! The one by a TB stallion called Thethingaboutitis was about 17 hands when he finished growing.
Now I am a fan of pintos!!!

I am sifting through Mirabeau and Arts Aero lingeage and there doesn't seem to be a lot heavy ancestors in either of their lines. I think AFR is a given as he is a race bed TB lol.

It is so hard because I have to make sure this is the best breeding I could possibly do since it will be her last foal and I have big hopes for this foal. I know even the best breeding could give me a dud but I want to do the best I possibly can.

I'm guilty of being put off by the Cremello colour - which I know is wrong but can't help it. That said even if I dismissed that I still like the Arts Aero horse better, he has that WOW factor for me, the Dutch WB are lighter anyway and doing so well in the top showjumping classes - no trouble with the big spreads. The TB blood seems to give horses that slightly brainless determination and guts to 'give it a go' that you need X Country

Apologise if you already showed this video but it shows a really settled stallion and that's really important to have in an event horse that's going to be faced at fences that don't fall over when you hit them, they need courage but being out of control if they get too fizzed up is no fun

I am not a huge fan of Cremello either, trust me that is NOT what got me lol. But colour is the last thing on my list of what I am looking for.

I truly love the look of Arts Aero, he has a big beautiful correct jump, he has a nice build, he comes from a line of level headed horses with great temperment. The only reason I didn't originally have him on my short list was because I felt a bit gun shy on the colour as I love Pinto warmbloods so I was scared that I was missing faults and only seeing colour

Now I just stumbled across this guy today and he hasn't been added to my list yet as I don't know anything about him and I am very weary of Trakheners for the simple fact they tend to be a bit explosive. But this guy doesn't look too bad Welcome to Emerald Acres Fine Trakehner Sport Horses Online! you have to click on "our horses" then Tatendrang and there are pics, videos, offspring etc listed.

Sorry, NBE, I'm not a huge fan. His jump is ok but I don't find him to have scope that takes my breath away. The Spruce clip is not from a major class in the international ring, and while jumps are impressive, they're not gigantic. Clear, yes, but I didn't find that his jump wowed me.

Oh I know the class wasn't in the international ring. It was not a GP class lol. It does amuse me though when people are all "look my horse showed at Spruce!" when in reality all that means is you went to the facility and could have just plodded around a .90 course

What I love is his temperment and I admit I love his colour. I also am a big fan of Art Deco.

(Yes I know I just got done saying is I am not looking for colour but darn it I love his colouring lol)
