Yes you are very lucky having access to so many good stallions there! We can get some with frozen semen, but a lot aren't available by frozen so we miss out. A lot of breeders are buying mares over there, putting them in foal to a stallion not available in Australia and importing them back in foal. VERY EXPENSIVE!!

He went 12 months a couple of weeks ago, so still very much a bubby :) Long wait for me to get on his back, I hope it will be worth it!
We do use quite a few TB mares over here with the WB's, just because of the limited access with WB mares. Unfortunately this means we get a few 'backyard breeders' who think a nice WB stallion with 'fix' their TB mare and you end up with 'fugly' foals that sell for less than the stud fee.
Billy is out of a TB mare, but she is really lovely. When they were all classified by the head of the Hano stud book in Germany earlier this year, he absolutely raved over Billy's dam, saying we need to have more mares like her to cross with WB stallions. Fish also crosses exceptionally well with the TBs :) I did want to get something with straight WB on both sides, but Billy was just perfect for me in the end.

Excellent to hear about how Duffy is progressing, what a lovely mare!

Maybe you'll get some nice speed in that canter then ;D
I think because we have access to such nice WB mares, you don't really hear of it out here... being crossed with a TB I mean.
Thats what I don't want.. getting Duffy covered, if I do, and it turning out to be a fugly foal lol! or a giraffe or camel :)
I mean I paid 3,800 euros for Duffy, should have been less in the condition I bought her in, but the owner before the owner I bought her off bought her for 6000, and my trainer reckons if we compete and win (pretty likely ) then if I did decide to sell (NOOOO) possibly 8,000 if the economy keeps going up!

But at least you have plenty of time to collect things for him haha! rugs, numnahs, boots, bandages, headcollars etc!! And think of colour schemes.. I think forest green would suit him.. he's so handsome!!

She is brill, she's such a friendly, gentle giant, and tries in earnest all the time.. can't ask for more!!

No Hanno papers as Dimitrj was imported and my boys dam is Anglo Arab born over here in N.A.

His dam has the same sire as Carrick's sire. Carrick was John William's international eventing mount that won Bronze for the US two olympics ago and gold at the WEG that year..

I thought papers stayed with them when they were imported?
Thats why I asked, because I need to change ownership of Duffy, and she then becomes 'British' so to speak as her nationality changes to mine.

Have you got any pictures of yours, Spyder? Would love to seem some!

Okay ladies, any insight on my girl? I bought her for fun for myself and for my students to ride. I didn't get her papers since she is past the point of breeding age and it saved me some dinero. I remember a Bolero and a Welt -something or other. I know absolutely nothing about Hanos, she's my first non QH in 30 years.

What I do know about her, she's a sweet ol' thing that I've absolutely fallen in love with. She towers over my QH's in the pasture and is a total jealous nellie when I'm working others in the arena, she stands at the gate and pouts big time until it's her turn. Have put her over a few jumps and she absolutely comes alive. She is so much fun, wish I had gone against the family grain decades ago!

Welt will be from a Weltmeyer line... NICE. I like the line, its a bit 'common' out here, but lovely dressage horse, thrown good jumpers. Sometimes temperament can be a bit fiesty, but thats upbrining as well!
I have heard of a Bolero, not much, but one of those that sticks to the back of your mind...
My fave lines for riding schools, families, or beginners is Rubenstein -sigh- they're lovely, well built, well mannered horses... only ever met geldings but by gum they were handsome burgers!!

Thanks Duffy. The temperament thing is funny, she's a total puppy most of the time. I saw the fiesty part when I decided she was my trail ride partner for the afternoon alone. She's been an arena diva for her 19 years and you'd have thought every falling leaf, squirrel, deer, crunching stick, etc were horse eating monsters. She has a pretty good scoot & snort lol!

Here she is when I got her, very out of shape. Then a couple of one of our first rides, forgive my horrid position and slack rein, I have spent the last 20 years on reiners and working QH's that ride on 5 miles of slack. I'm constantly in my own head reminding myself to shorten them up lol!

She is LOVELY!!

In good condition for 19, I have to say! I have a nice pic of me and my old man somewhere at home, will dig it out!!

I like, that although you have slack reins, she's still long and low within herself, and not sticking her head up!

Hahaha I know what you mean, my Doey was a nightmare when I got him.. dragon was an understatement. I remember riding him out hungover once with a friend, we got lost, and we were up hill, fields on one side, wooded area on the other, and behind the trees was grot lake, smelly pond thing.. he wouldn't go, wouldn't go, wouldn't go, and I kept asking, asking asking, in the end he wentup, not fully, span, and ran.. I threw up down him.. only water though thank god hahaha!! EVERYTHING they see... OH MY LORD. THAT WASNT THERE YESTERDAY!!

They're funny animals aren't they!!

But again, she is lovely! Soft eyes, bet she has a wonderful temperament to go with it x
