Are there any foals on the ground of the bay?

Yes there are, and they are lovely. None are competing yet though I don't believe.

I was just talking to a local breeder about doing frozen in our area and she said I should factor an extra $2000 or so into my breeding budget because of our limited resources around here. Plus where she is older frozen is a serious gamble. So this is really making the bay more and more of a possibility, especially since he is local and live cover.

Look for something like him, tho. With the touch of TB you want for the heart, a bit refined to compliment your mare, and don't worry too much about the dressage label, they're all tested in jumping, too. And of course look at the babies...does he " stamp" or does he let momma through.
And don't be influenced by " next door", " everybody goes there", " cheap", if you're not 1000% convinced. Breed the best to the best, then hope for the best......

Thank you! I am so sick of the "everyone does it" attitude around here. This part of the country drives me nuts lol.

I am still considering A Fine Romance. Yes he is TB but he stamps all his babies with a level head, great conformation and talent. So much talent from his babies!

My only concern with this stud (knowing very little about eventing) is that he seems to be very close together in his trot. If your mare does not have a nice trot (you say she does which is good) because it seems like if paired with the wrong mare the offspring of this stallion could end up interfering. His hind foot is very close to his front. Breeding is grab bag of genetics so that is something I would watch for on this guy.

I'm not a big fan of this guy. The lower legs are pretty loose over fences, along with the faults DHW pointed out.

DHW, I've been head-over-heels for Sir Wanabi for a long time. Too bad you can't do frozen!

Thank you everyone for your honest opinions.

Honestly my gut for over two years has been telling me to go for A Fine Romance. I think I am going to consider him a lot more heavily as it just feels so right.

I love From The Ashes, he is a nice stallion and throws beautiful quiet offspring, but I just don't see him balancing out mares faults.

Don't let anyone pressure you - she's your mare! If you have any doubts or are hesitant, then don't do it. You don't want to end up with a foal that makes you say "Bother, I should've gone with my gut, why did I listen to others?" You don't want a foal that you end up naming "Regret"! :)
