I wasn't seriously considering breeding to him though.
What sort of stallion WOULD you look at, for a very thoroughbred-type mare? She's tall and very fine boned- would like more bone honestly.
IDK if it's a Holsteiner thing or not, but not to that degree!
I would definitely look at the conformation pictures first, but if he has a great temperament and presence in person that does count for a lot.
Something BIG is my answer. From the sound of it I would be even less inclined to breed this guy to a mare like yours. I know we are being hypothetical but what would you want to do with the foal? Does it need to be a Hanoverian? I would probably pick a heavy warmblood to cross to. Bring out the nice QH size and keeping the TB build. Especially if your mare is light of bone.
