Oldenburg Approval Young Stallion

I have a young Oldenburg stallion prospect that I am going to go through the process of getting approved. I have been involved in showing and riding warmbloods for years and years but now that I am breeding some of the registry things confuse me.

I have also been involved in breeding but with Arabians so it's a very different ball game.

I don't want to do this wrong and shoot myself in the foot with this young guy.

He is foal registered after Premium Inspection with Oldenburg NA. He is Black/White and HOMOZYGOUS for Pinto. His sire is multi registered with Oldenburg NA, Oldenburg Verband and a few others. His dam is also registered Oldenburg and in Mare Book I.

My plan is to breed this guy to my Arabian mares for multi registerable foals. Not only do I keep the movement and athletic type that I am breeding but I gain height, more mass, and COLOR.

I also plan to go the warmblood route and add a few of my own mares. I plan to open him up to outside mares, so I don't want to just go the American Warmblood route because I feel I will limit his possibilities for the future.

Am I right in thinking that? Wouldn't it be best to go with a full Oldenburg registration first?

Can anyone shed some light on the grey areas? Which registry offers more oppurtunities for it's offspring in the future? Benefits in going both Oldenburg and American Warmblood?

Oldenburg is thought of much more highly IMO....american warmbloods are what many "true warmblood" breeders consider fake warmbloods....if that makes sense....lol ;) I would go with oldenburg first for sure personally

I agree with Piaffe really, but you can breed Oldenburg with several types of warmbloods and still get it registered in the Oldenburg registry. Some you could breed with are Norwegian Warmblood, Danish Warmblood, English Thouroughbred. I know for sure that you can register English TB x Oldenburg as an Oldenburg since many of today's Oldenburgs have a long line of TB's in their pedigree to make them lighter and better sport horses. Pure bred Oldenburgs are often very stocky built. If you breed your stallion with a Norwegian Warmblood for eks. then you could get it registered as a Norwegian Warmblood, think the same would go for a Dutch Warmblood (KWPN). That might be exciting if you were to find a painted KWPN, that has a nice build and pedigree. Don't know what registery you could register an Oldenburg x Arab mix. Not in Europe at least, but i think we Europeans are much more picky when it comes to breeding..which i believe is a good thing. There are so many strange mixes around. Here in Norway it is illegal to crossbreed, unless it's an approved breed. The Barockpinto is on it's way in but i just dont see the point in it. A flashy spotted horse that costs way too much in my opinion :P So much cross breeding is going to make the original bloodlines die out eventually. If i could keep my mare i would definetly breed her, I love her pedigree.

Breed for quality, I wouldnt think too much about the colour.

Sorry if I got a bit carried away, i love studying pedigrees and i'm in a couple of breeding comitees so I find it all very exciting :)

The question you should be asking is how will he stack up against other similarly bred stallions out there. I assume this stud has Samber ( maybe Sempatico?) lines and if so that line is very much represented in N. A.

So unless he is a VERY VERY outstanding individual you can find he will be difficult to market.
