I was thinking we should start a new 2010 thread, it was really interesting last year to see which stallion people were using on their mares.

We are seriously considering using Limoncello ll for my mares this year.

Here's his link. Please let me know what you think about him, I'm would love your imput. He's new in the U.S. this year, from Germany.

His pedigree works super well with our leased mares and we're pretty excited about him.

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).

Anyways, I'm planning to use Redwine again (http://grayfoxfarms.com/redwine.htm), Dacaprio (http://bridlewoodhanoverians.com/dacaprio.php) Edelweiss de Bonce (http://avalon-equine.com/Edelweiss.html), and either one of my pony stallions... depending on what the foal out of one of my Thoroughbred mares looks like this year. If it's nice, I'll repeat the breeding to Solomon, or if I'd like a little improvement in some areas, I may use my new Welsh stallion.

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?

I had no idea that Edelweiss de Bonce was Jos's stallion. How cool is that!

I also didn't know you have leased mares... very interesting. What is nice about leasing, you have so many more opportunities that would not present themselves, if you only used the mares you own.

We are planning on breeding the 3 German mares we leased. We're not planning on breeding Uh-O back this year because 3 is enough for us for one year.

It should be a very interesting breeding season 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...
