Need opinion on possible stallion choice
Here I go again sharing more info then I care to on here :lol:
I have been eyeing this stallion for awhile now. I am breeding for an eventer, hopefully potential for upper levels. Some of you may remember a Trek stallion I had shared earlier who my heart was set on. However a few things make me second guess it(biggest one being the fact that the foal would not be eligible for any registries)
Anyway moving on. I have been eyeing this stallion for awhile. I know him and he has a lovely temperament and throws amateur friendly foals. Which is desirable in my area should I ever have to sell in the future.
So... opinions? I am not asking you to tear the stallion to pieces. I am just looking for opinions on him and I can share pics of my mare if need be.
I like him better than the other one you picked out.
Really?! I've been drooling over Tzigane *Pb* for so long lol... Interesting... :think:
I don't know how I feel about how his jump... his knees are nice but the lower leg makes me go "hmm" for an eventer.
Another jumping pic
Lower set neck, steep shoulder, short, upright pastern = very limited trot. His jumping.......well, you said it......
not my cup of tea. BUT, keep in mind I might have a different type of horse - taste;-)
okay so like I said in chat, he's very handsome and seems to be a decent mover I like his knees a lot but I agree with you that he dangles his back legs a bit, though you said these were older/baby pics of him so maybe that's changed.
(excuse the winter fuzzies and lack of conditioning, she had just had a couple months off because I couldn't ride)
I would have loved one of the Trakehner's for her.
To stick with the type of horse, I'd look into direction Hannover or Oldenburg, with a little " blood" added. In fact, I, personally, would try to stay as pure as possible within the two breeds, accepting only TB as " foreign" addition. Seems to compliment her best.
Forgot....to get the temperament you want, look at the indexes from the performance testing of stallion and his sire. That should give you some security.
I love a Trakehner for her too... I really hate that my registry options are shut down if I bred to a Trakehner *sigh*
Everyone here is pushing me to breed her to this stallion. He is a nice enough boy, I love him and he is "the" go to breeding stallion for eventing here. But he just does not "Wow" me like Tzigane *Pb* does.
Decisions!!!!!!!!! *runs away crying*
