    I also think he has a lot to offer the breed.

    Astro will stand to feathered breed mares. This is the wish of his owner and she is in charge of that. However he will no longer be available to non draft mares while in my care.

    Good. I'm really glad to hear that.


    I have to say I find it sad that a stallion gets looked down upon because he has an affordable stud fee.

    As far as I saw on the all-breed forums who were trashing him, it was not only for an extremely cheap stud fee, but for the fact that he was advertised to be bred to all breeds for that fee. I had not even known where he was after Jen sold him and only when those who loved to trash the Gypsies brought it up, did I discover who owned him. I became sick of trying to educate people on other forums, after a few years.

    I don't feel this is right. I will be thinking about what a good stud fee will be for him. Feel free to pm me your thoughts.

    Hmm. I'd have a look at his purebred foals and see how he has produced and then place a stud fee on him. As he builds a name for producing and/or in the show ring, then adjust the stud fee as needed.

    Has he been inspected? If he can receive a 1st Premium, then that will add to his worth as a stud.

    An absolutely stunning stallion. And I like all his foals. I think he really stamps his get.

    I am not a fan of draft type horses. I do however think that this stallion is very stunning. I have no desire to ever own one but this stallion might make me change my mind.
    Why would they choose to breed him to haflinger mares? Not trying to be critical just curious. Shalom

    He hasn't been inspected yet... that is at the top of my list for sure. I know the judges will love him but unfortunately don't think hell be ready for the inspection this October as he's currently in pasture condition (aka tubby). My fillys dam was penalized for excess weight and I definitely want him to be at his best so will be starting right in conditioning. Pinto papers will be sent in and hell show there as well as I love the ptha show scene. As usual he will also be going to the MSU stallion expo.

    He certainly does on a wide variety of mares. This is why I am so excited to get some nice Gypsy and Drum foals on the ground by him :)
