Also - just a thought on the stud fees - not saying the horse isn't worth it but in this market you may want to consider decreasing from $1200 as that seems like quite a bit for an unproven stallion. In comparison, Edelweiss Du Bonce
(registered/licensed Selle Francais NA, approved/licensed Old Verband, Belgian Warmblood) is a successful international GP dressage horse with a proven record both in Europe and the United States, and his regular stud fee is $1500 with a current special going on for only $350 (yes, including the booking fees!!!). The other Avalon Stallions are also impressive, and LA Express
(licensed/approved CSHA, RPSI) is also available for $350 this year - normally $850, and Mannhattan
(registered/licensed Old NA, approved/licensed Old Verband (in 2009), ISR, Belgian Warmblood) is only $500 - normally $1500 and he's been through the 100 day test and competed at the upper levels of show jumping with successfully competing offspring that are also licensed/approved studs (Morocco
- competing successfully at PSG dressage, approved/licensed Old NA, BWP NA, RPSI stud fee $1850).
Here's the info just to give you a price comparison as in this market I think it may be hard to get a young stud booked for such a high price. Just trying to be helpful for you to book more mares and help make a name for your stallion. 2008 Pre-Season Special
The link should read 2009 just FYI the special is current not sure why it says 2008 lol sorry about that!
