I actually consider inquiring about your boy Amorex for a really long time! I didn't know you were on this board! Aside from your boy being BEAUTIFUL, I really wanted to stay as local as possible even if we had to do AI, and I would much rather pick up and drive a container myself and drive over the pass than pay Fedex.
She is registered but her papers were lost by the rescue when they took her in, but the rescue owner remembers that she was by Juvel. Because she's basically a grade mare without papers proving otherwise, I really wanted to breed her with an open or at least more liberal registry.
(Long explanation) I personally believe that good horses come from being handled and socialized with the world as much as possible but not being saddled till they're an older 2 year old but not backed until they're 3.
I've found the best way to do this is a lot of in-hand classes, I'm a big fan of in-hand breed classes and trail in-hand classes at a young age. But in order to participate in the breed classes you need to typically be registered for the best/most options. Plus I also know that as a foundation breed the Irish Draught horses will typically register anything as an Irish Sporthorse as long as you can prove at least 1/4 Irish Draught.
That's why 2 of the horses are RID and one is a local German Warmblood located outside of Seattle. .. anyways
Mary, SWANAs different books and register A, B C etc and approved stallions vs licensed/unlicensed stallions is very confusing to me. If I were to breed with a SWB but would my registration options be? Feel free to PM me if it's too long and complicated of an answer.
But yes Julep is a very type-y traditional style of Swedish Warmblood, that's one of the things I love about her. She's a big solid girl with a nice solid bone, and the assertive, sweet and goofy personality to match.
I am a longtime Swedish breeder-- so I may be biased :)
I really like your mare's back. (Actually I like everything about her!) My longtime teacher, Bettina Drummond, used to say the topline is everything....Your mare is a wonderful true Swedish type. May I ask what her breeding is?
