I kinda like him. I like him best in the first shot. I am not sure he is as "over" at the knee as he appears. His leg markings seem to accentuate this a bit. His shoulder is a bit upright and shallow, so I would expect more knee action than shoulder reach.

The second photo does him NO justice. It accentuates his shallow shoulder and he is reaching away from his haunch. It makes his hind legs look like straight posts (the first photo shows this is not the case with him).

I know what I would love him for....a field hunter! He has great bone and is nice and solid. If he makes some height, I would love to hunt him sidesaddle. His neck and back would make him perfect aside.

I wish he were closer to NC.

I thought the Georgian Grande was a Frezian/arab cross. Now where'd I get that idea?

Oh... Huh, I didn't see a few of these posts a minute ago...

Allison Finch - yup, he doesn't get a lot of reach out front... I have seen him get what I would consider "acceptable" reach for a lengthened trot, but it's not likely going to get him any high scores in dressage.

I've never heard of "field hunters"... Guessing we don't have it near me, what is it?

Not sure, I think that a Friesian/Arab could be registered as Friesian Sporthorse... But it cannot be registered as Georgian Grande.

The Georgian Grande cross that seems most popular at the moment is the Saddlebred/Friesian, so maybe you got Saddlebred and Arab confused? (Or maybe someone who was misinformed, misinformed you?)

A field hunter is one used for foxhunting.

Ah! Ok! No foxhunting in my area that I've ever heard of... I hear it is great fun from some of my US friends though

Take a look at this big beast. The original source where I found the picture does not work anymore . . . He WAS a stud . . . Maybe not anymore . . .




This is this info that came from the original site: "“Georgian Grande Baron, Von Vendavel, Standing 17.3 at 6 Years old. The Georgian Grande Horse is a new horse breed being developed from crossbreeding the American Saddlebred on the Friesian horse and assorted draft horse breeds. The aim of the breeding is to create a Saddlebred-like horse that adds the best qualities of heavier breeds. One goal of the breed registry is to recreate a historic type of Saddlebred common prior to the 20th century that has been less emphasized in modern times.”

He's out of a friesian stallion and a saddlebred/percheron mare. He is also a gelding.
Edit: on their site, www.flyingwfarms.com, he does not appear anywhere- I had to search his name to find information- so I'm pretty sure they sold him and that's why he dropped off the radar.

You can still see pictures of Baron von Vendavel (aka: Val, not to be confused with my mare that has the same nick name, although they have the same sire) on the FWF website. They post pictures of the horses they sold that are sent in by the owners.

Actually, pretty much all the pictures of him that are out there were taken by the lady who bought him. I think they have cut back on the numbers they are breeding, but they are still putting out some lovely horses.
