You don't need to worry -at all - about sounding like a dummy. Not One Bit.
It is always best to ask a lot of questions, as it is a learning experience.
I am happy to help, so don't hesitate to ask.
Or, if you want to send me a PM that would be great too!

I'm just wondering where you are located, since you said your mare would be foaling in about a month...

TC perhaps you could tell us how old the oldest crop of Garanteed Gold offspring are, and what levels they are competing at, in any discipline?

Good question Tamaracklane.
I can hear the crickets chirping way over here in Australia

A Fine Romance has proven himself in other jumping disciplines; Training level Eventing is just another tick on his (impressive) resume. He has offspring competing successfully in International rings in a few different disciplines. Nothing to scoff at, in my opinion. He's proven himself, and his offspring have proven him in the breeding shed.
It's one thing to say "my stallion may have only competed at Training level in Eventing, but he has XYZ to back him up as a potential Eventing stallion for your mare" and "my stallion has done Training level Eventing" with nothing much else on the resume to back up an Eventing sire claim.


---

In regards to TC's claim about excellent performance stallions not passing along their talent - why make breeding any more of a crapshoot? Should I breed a dressage mare to HickBoy down the road (who once won an Intro dressage test since he was the only contestant) because Totilas/Redwine/OtherBigNameStallion may not pass on as much talent as him? Hell no. I breed to the best I can to improve the chances of the foal excelling in the discipline I am breeding for. I may not want to go to the Olympics, but I want a foal that's well-bred and has the potential to be what I want in my discipline. So I really honestly don't understand your argument. Maybe Secretariat never produced another great winner, but does that mean that people should have bred to ImTooLazyToRun instead, because ImTooLazyToRun *may* produce a horse that performs just as well as a Secretariat baby?


Interesting conversation this thread has produced. OP, I hope you don't mind the hijack!

As a mare owner, I like to hear what stallions have done as well as produced.
I really like A Fine Romance, he has certainly proven himself. GG is a pretty color, but I have yet to hear of specific foals that have done something beyond line classes. I will be looking for stallions to breed my mares to next year and would like to have as much information as I can to help me in my decision.
CowgirlShay, what specific traits are you looking to improve on? Knowing that info might help people aid you in your search.

@TamarckLane - I am located in So Cali

@JustDressageIt - I don't mind the hijack at all, it's educating :O lol

@reiningfan - I am looking to improve my mare's confo (of course) and bone, I want a bigger offspring, (16.3-18 hand range) trainable, willing, quiet, traits and of course the abilities to perform in showjumping, hunters, dressage, and xcountry. I know all/most of these traits might not pass on but it would be nice to see.
