Just a reminder not to forget who your friends were before you made it big!!!!
The dam of both Versace and Trussardi was absolutely stunning. Shalom
Ohhh I suffer no illusions about what these judges/trainers are looking for. I'm not breeding for extreme halter, nor do I want to. I want usable, sane horses whose eyes don't fly out of their head while they flip over repeatedly.
I didn't realize this trainer worked at Rohara before Rojo, and he's also a National Judge, so for my filly to even get his attention, much less him offering high compliments, speaks for itself. That is satisfying enough as far as I'm concerned.
My trainer has known/worked with/trained with many these folks for decades, so we have them visiting on the farm regularly. Another International Judge was there as well, and he had the same opinion of my horses, so I got pretty consistent eval across the board. It's been interesting getting to know these people and what they're looking for. Their input on Performance was very useful.
I actually am not that impressed with Versace, but I agree his Dam was stunning!!
