That being said if the mare had the same start in life you are probably looking at alot of health issues (arthritis/back/hocks etc..) in both of them once they older regardless so it would just be a matter of dealing with that in 10 yrs or in 2 yrs I suppose! Is it common for Ausie horses to have showing careers undersaddle at the age of 2? If so what type of classes? Jumping or on the flat? I hope to goodness on the flat!
the 2yo has been brought along slowly and is a fantastic little horse to ride. As he is a colt, he is quite mature already, and is under no pressure at all. W_S summed up what the two year olds do in Aust.
ampdraft, I have a list of stallions I like but they are all so nice! I definitely lean towards the Abdul line, expecially the sons/grandsons of Palmers Fort Abdul - So Bryjen Fort Talon, Cadabra, Waylon J Justice... I love the good neck they throw. [QUOTE][QUOTE]
I agree! Out of those stallions, I would lean towards cadabra, as he is cowy, and still fine enough for the mare. If I was looking at something just purely for showing, definitely the other two. Also, one of our friends has a gorgeous reg ASH by Acres, who I would put her too, but it would be unable to be reg ASH as he is C2. Still thinking of him though!
And GP Stryder, Chevin Levi, Hazelwood Conman, Impressive Destiny or Rosebrook Balou. Quite a lot to choose from! Haha, help would be great! Can do three embryos...
