I recently acquired a new broodmare, who had a fabulous foal in 2021 by Balounito. I think I’d like to breed her to Dauphin in 2022, but I’m also open to other suggestions. She has some lovely breeding further back, and I would like to bring some of that back closer, as most of it will be “off paper” on her foals, however she herself is a very “old type” mare. She’s 17.2, and big/heavy and angular in ever aspect albeit correct with a fabulous brain, show record and she really outdid herself with her 2021 foal!
Her damside is primarily Hunter bred through Regardez and some TB, while her sireside goes back to Donnerhall and Florestan I in the 4/5th gen.
I’m good with fresh or frozen, but prefer something I can get my hands on within Canada, especially for fresh. Frozen I’m okay with importing, but with the timeline constraints for Fresh given my rural location, it’s just not an option to bring across the boarder.
My goal with my program is to produce ammy friendly horses with the qualities a professional would admire, so here’s my tall order:
- marketable, well known breeding
- dressage or hunter
- modern / refining / smaller
- if fresh, in Canada only
- if frozen can be worldwide, but bonus points for being in canada
- superior temperament
I think correct conformation goes without saying, but her front end is her weakest area - she’s fairly short legged with a moderately sloped shoulder, and though she isn’t bum high or disproportioned, she would benefit from refining and compacting all around.
Hit me with 'em!
