Dimaggio

I know nothing of him as a sire, but he is one of the nicest horses I've ever seen. Youtube him. He's a Hanoverian.

Carries the Donnerhall line on top ( the one I posted) with the "W" line on the bottom.

Actually looks very much more like the W line.

Swarovski is brilliant as well. Oldenburg...i think.

Both are STUNNING, but if I ever do get to breed her I probably wouldn't go with one with Donnerhall in him. I always worry that they'll be too closely related and the foal will come out with some grotesque deformation. Probably ridiculous but it still scares me haha

If I ever manage to get on my Samber baby I'll let you know how ridable he is. At the moment not having much luck with the getting on part!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Can you post your mares full pedigree?

I am not passing myself off as any expert but having a D line stallion myself I have done considerable research in what has been done before under the German breeding system and what lines seem to nitch well with others and what lines are successfully line bred.

My own boy carries the D line twice with modifiers and goes back to the same Trakhner line that originated the A line 4 times.

I had a Samber great-granddaughter and looooved her. (She was a State of the Art Daughter). That's probably my top priority when I breed Dulcinea. I lost my State of the Art daughter in December, and wanted to find another horse from the same sire but unfortunately there aren't many out there (only found one other for sale but she was too far away and too expensive).

Spyder: I thought I had, but looked back and I totally forgot to post her pedigree *facepalm* Here it is

Looking at both pedigrees ( yours and Dimaggio's) you would be mildly line breeding Pik As/Pik Koenig and Donnerhall.

The thing is both lines have done well when doubled or tripled. Adding the Woerman line is a viable addition as this line has often been added to both the G like for stability in temperament and the D line for more expression in the gait.( which is exactly what was done for Dimaggio.)

So a stallion like him ( doesn't have to be him) would be a viable and most likely a fruitful cross).

The Pik Bube 1 line seems to be strong in its influence for many generations and if you every saw that stud move you would just faint.
