    peppers grand sire is san simeon, does anyone have any pics of him?

    some people breed for their own personal use, but there is no market to breed standies as ridden horse when you can get them so cheap off the track etc
    did you not end up taking abe on lease?

    The nicest mare we have in the paddock ATM is by Pacific Rocket. Her name is Pacific Blitz. She is just a doll. The other nice broody is by Fake Left. Our nice racing filly ATM is by Badlands Hanover. I think she's probably his best racing filly here to date....her name is Very Chic. We have bred with every horse mentioned for colts and fillies and really liked the Grinfromeartoear's..

    The only horse I have never liked is our current yearling by Comotion from our Panarama mare........he is brain-dead and annoys the hell outta me!! He tries to jump in the trailer because he runs behind it (so should be good at the, but he is a very naughty boy who doesn't care if you slap him on the neck and says back "Didn't hurt". I call him Jeffery.....he is a real Jeffery.

    The nicest was our 2 yr old Cora by Presidential Ball (we've had 3 of these)...she was lovely and sweet...and the Cullen was nice too.

    As for how they'd ride.......? Couldn't tell you........but they raced well....lolol

    Ooooh EVP the bottom filly is beautifully bred! Bet you will have alot of fun with her :)

    What do people think of the Legacy of Power's? I know of a 3 year colt by him who is the nicest natured horse you will ever come across. He certainly doesn't know he is a monster (stands around 16.3hh).

    Another one I like is Kinney Hanover's. Very sweet natured horses.

    Gaia I agree, Admirals Christmas is absolutely beautiful and throws lovely stock.

    Here is our Saab. This is one of the nicest horses I have ever come across. Can't speak highly enough of him :)

    Thankyou Babe the standy Rocks :) He is a lovely boy, I can't wait to give him a ridden career after racing. I already ride him for race work at the beach, and he is a dream.

    Thankyou Racybeast, yes he is a liver chestnut. Those pics are a little old, and he was still in his winter coat. He has now shed out into the most beautiful chocolate colour.

    Elvis is by San Simeon out of Miss Emmawah (Waitaki Elect x Honey Spring), he is approx 15hh, bay with the creamy coloured tummy strip, acts nervy and flighty. But he will fly around the paddock with tail and head up, he is so proud for a dud! And he likes to snort afterwards.
    Maybe I teach the old fellow to round up sheep, his put the alpacas in their night yard a couple of times.
    I suppose these bloodlines are a bit old for people to remember.

    Our last pacer was by Kinny Hanover. Only won 1 race and wasn't at all pretty but great temperament.

    My 19 yo mare is by The Sunbird Hanover out of Sweep Hand. Not sure that she is a good representation of his progeny as she was badly treated and starved and had 6 (I think) owners in the two years before I got her. So she understandably has issues. Having said that, with a little bit of work she has become a good solid mare, thinks she is only about 6 years old, lovely to ride and although she has respect issues and has learnt every evasion technique in the book, she willingly concedes leadership duties when handled correctly - even by my beginner hubby and 10yo old daughter who is learning to ride on her.

    Now that I think about it, the fact that her previous mis-treatment hasn't turned her into a dirty horse is probably a good indication of her genes**)

    This has turned into such an informative thread, I am glad that I asked the original question:)

    EVP, what is the Elsu colt like? Have always loved Elsu.

    He is a nice colt...a little bit shy atm as he wasn't born here, he came with his mum from NZ about 3 months ago...he's also a Jan baby that didn't get alot of handling while over there (standard for the Kiwis I'm told)....but he's coming along well.....doesn't like to get into trouble is how I have been findiing him which translates into a smart horse in my books.....those kind don't make things hard for themselves.....lolol

    He's a bit ugly in the head depart.....:(

    Our mare ran a gallliant 4th...but I can't help being a bit disappointed. Her draw was terrible but I was really hoping she'd snaffle it. Never mind.

    Do understand you being a bit disappointed, but still 4th is pretty good and she did bring home a cheque **)
    Could you please post a picture of your Blissfull Hall gelding? :)

    This is the only one I have. And its not very good.....he was a late weaner here.

    Thanks for that EVP he is a nice boy. I have a BH 3yo he is a lovely willing horse but he just needs to mature

    On the whole I think fillies mature a bit quicker in the STB breed....the ones that don't; do so very much "on purpose".....lolol....they just prefer to be difficult. The colts mostly seem to have issues that need winning over....but once you have them and they have a routine of comfort they get better quickly.
