Glad I'm not going crazy.. there are old lines and modern lines!

Fruhlingsball...FRUHLINGSBALL is a Westphalian trademark stallion who sired more than 100 sport horses successful in advanced level dressage and jumping and whose off-spring have won more than 4 million.

Paradox...His sire Paradox Westphalian with a solid jumping production record and goes back to Waldschuetz by the Hannoverian improvement sire Waidmannsdank, ...lots of noted dressage horses.

Those are old line.

Most peoiple associate Donnerhall as more modern, forgetting that some strong old lines are in there.

I loved Pik Bube. Gorgeous black horse with outstanding movement. But he was a fairly round not exactly a dainty stud.

My old lad Do It Again was Donnerschlag, he was almost Alt Oldenberg he was so thick set... not heavy, just thick set.

She has good lines, not something I was particularly interested in, but its brilliant she does ;D

I do tend to agree, she has a lovely strong front end (could do with more muscle on the top of her neck) but it unfortunately doesn't translate to a nice hind. Very straight stifles and hocks and yes it is undermuscled but even so would ideally be a whole lot larger. I doubt she will put on enough muscle to create a balanced and correct appearance and indeed more muscle on the hindquarter will increase the appearance of her posty hind legs.

Lovely looking horse though, and WOW that pedigree!

Thanks blue eyed pony

She's more for pleasure and low level competitions, and I'll keep you all updated with pictures too :)

Like before, I can't remember exactly how my trainer's other half explained it.. it said she wasn't using her entire hind leg properly because she didn't have to, now she's working more correctly, I'm hoping it'll start to balance out a bit more.

Thank you very much, she is a lovely natured mare, and her pedigree is pretty good ;D Lucky enough to get it over here!
