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?
