    There's at least 3 by him over there!!! As an aside, I actually competed Windgap when he was a young horse

    Opinions on sons of Cruising and Master Imp at stud?

    The one other that escapes you is the rather phenomenal Hermes De Reve! Nations Cup horse, GP winner, sire of international eventers and showjumpers and half brother to Pacino

    Breeding; The practicalities.

    We're horse breeders. We're in this for the long haul. To make sure the next generation is better than the last. This isn't the place to make a quick buck. We're gamblers with an addiction!

    How to gate price of cardento foal please!!

    What you have in that filly is a nice bit of what our thoroughbred friends would refer to as "black type" in the damline. Even if she never competes and just goes breeding at 3, it's still a strong damline and the odds of producing successful competition horses from her are stacked in your...

    How to gate price of cardento foal please!!

    When you're asked to bid, it's sometimes because the owner doesn't want to scare you away with what (s)he thinks the foal is worth/isn't sure what to ask. If it were my foal and out of a mare with that performance and by Cardento then recession or not, if she wasn't making €10k there's a...

    King of Diamonds Irish draught

    When the two of the best ID stallions ever, Clover Hill and KOD himself, wouldn't get in as Grade 1 stallions today, you know something is gone pear shaped!! Irish Draughts ... a type. Not a breed. The best ID stallion? Sea Crest obviously! Why? Look below ;-)

    Future Trend Stallion

    What Gadetra said! He is indeed with Kennedys. They have a proper roster of stallions down there!

    Jackson's Drift

    A friend of ours actually stood him in Clara View before moving to France and sending Jackson's Drift down to Clare. I'd say we had as many horses by him through here as any yard in the country.

    Flagmount King/Clover Hill mare - stallion?

    I think myself from having a bit of Flagmount King breeding in the yard here, that if were my mare, I'd use a commercial thoroughbred stallion and hope for a filly. Probably the best thoroughbred stallion in Britain I can think of off the top of my head is Power Blade. It's such a pity he's not...

    What are the biggest Irish Draught showing competitions in Ireland

    I'd imagine the Limerick Lady classes are geared towards draughts as well

    Orestus Stallion-V- Watermill Swatch

    I've a Puissance X Furisto mare in foal to Orestus. Cannot wait to see how that turns out. Saw plenty of Orestus foals at the Elite Foal Sale inspection day in Cavan last year. Each one made me pretty fricking excited!!!!!

    The lovely Puissance colt might well do me a huge favour by staying 148cms!! There goes that plan eh?

    what stallion should i use for .. showjumper foal...

    If you live near where Pacino stood then you're not too far from Drumhowan Stud and their exceptionally reasonable prices. Ringfort Cruise ... Cruising X Nimmerdor. A performance heavy damline including Renkum Englishman and Ringfort, himself won a Nations Cup. €600 The good folks in...

    Eothian's Post for Those that weren't On Here Then (March 2010)

    Well, I didn't have the funds available to me to use some of the stallions I wanted to use and I also decided that Ireland has as good a roster of Continental stallions with proven performance and progeny in their own right to not have to use stallions standing abroad. No, there's some I'm not...

    Be warned!!! You're about to read the ramblings of an angry young man!!! Some stuff that has been said on there might be slightly cringeworthy and make him think "Oops, did I really say that?"

    Wow!! Eh, I'm not sure what to say. I haven't been on here in ages and eh, am thankful to still be thought of. Alec, thank you and indeed everyone else too so very very much for the well wishes. It's been a strange few months that I wasn't expecting to be dealing with, but I'm happy to be...

    Favorite Irish stallions for breeding upper level event prospects?

    Yeah, Ars Vivendi is pretty popular with the show men alright. He's getting some really really good lookers. Hell, even if they do get wound up a little bit, which I'm not saying they do, it's not the end of the world. There's more to horse sport than leisure riders. Once they jump, all other...

    Milne is a very Co. Offaly name! That's for sure. What part of Co Offaly? I might know a guy who lives there!! ;-)

    Favorite Irish stallions for breeding upper level event prospects?

    He didn't compete long enough to get to the level of competition to be approved. Another couple of good results from a couple of his high performing progeny and he'll be in. Interestingly, I think it's his Eventing progeny that are gaining his approval for him

    Favorite Irish stallions for breeding upper level event prospects?

    Chacoa. Haven't dealt with any of his stock. Saw him last year when I was using Lancelot and OBOS Quality. Beautiful horse. Real blood. I was told that some breeders who went down to use Oke Boy often ended up using Chacoa and Sunny Boy instead because they're so blood. Chacoa is on the verge of...

    Plot Blue

    Very nice. Looks like it's well able to get itself in the air. One or two loose jumps every now and again isn't going to do much damage in the long run. What type was the mare you used? Was she tall? How tall? Did Plot Blue add any height to the foal? Would you use a smaller mare with him?

    OBOS Quality stock can be a touch downhill from time to time but have you seen what they do when you ask them to get up in the air?
