Have you seen Linaro? I saw a gorgeous mare by him at Bridlewood Farm last year, and he's been on my radar ever since. I like Lemoncello II, just haven't seen a whole lot by him yet. I like his pedigree. It's nice that he has Capitol I up close.
This could change if any of the mares get leased (they are all available).
We have considered Linaro, but Asia and Zealand have Linaro's son as their sire, so I don't want more Linaro blood, I want something different. Also, Limoncello and our leased mare's generational crosses with Capitano and Lord should make a very refined sport horse. So that's why we are thinking strongly about this sire.
I love the look of Redwine, nice bone and nice head. I love the way Dacaprio moves! He has an excellent walk! Edelweiss de Bonce is very tallented and seemingly a good mind with nice movement. I like all of them.
Isn't Trea due to foal mid May? I'm anxious to see this Trea/Redwine foal! It should be extremely nice! How's Trea doing?
Yep, Trea is due mid May, I can't wait! She's a very, very nice type Thoroughbred mare for Warmblood breeding. I have high hopes! What I love about Redwine is that he is extremely consistent. His foals all seem to be cookie cutters, with incredible personalities.
I definitely agree about Dacaprio's movement! I saw him in person, and he is a very light and elegant mover. The mare I'm considering him for is a big old fashioned mare (Bailey), and I think that Dacaprio would help to refine her, and improve her walk.
I really like multi talented sires, and I love Selle Francais's, so I'm excited about the opportunity to use Edelweiss de Bonce (he is Kathy and Jos's stallion).
I've already bought those three breedings, so at this point, it just depends on if the mares get leased out... I know for sure I'll be using Redwine again, as I'm using him on a mare I leased.
It looks like Lemoncello II is a super mover, with a great jump. I'm definitely interested to see what he produces, isn't this his first season in the United States? How many are you planning to breed this year?
WB stallions remind me of my old broodmares and breeding WB babies...I love how there is so much info about the stallions...they really must prove themselves in so many ways...
