So I say all the above justt not this year.
If I am wrong we need to reevaluate your program. LOL Shalom
Sadly, the polls don't allow that..lol
I am so glad to hear you say that. I am of the same opinion. There are specific traits to consider with the mares, but one of the very reasons Dream was chosen WAS for his compatibility with my mares, his strengths, and especially the proven prepotency with his progenitors.
I'm very proud to be preserving established, respected bloodlines. Next year will prove very busy for Dream!! He has several appointments with Ladies other than mine.
He will do much to add to my Spanish girls and will complement the Crabbet blood, which all my girls have.
Very good to see others excited about the direction my breeding program is going in. Takes a long time to get all the pieces falling together, but - oh -so - worth - it!!
Thanks for your input db!!
BTW-- if you come across an El Shaklan mare like your pretty girl, let me know. I will be looking for another Spanish mare with Estopa/El Shaklan, or Sanadik El Shaklan to flesh out my Spanish breeding.
