TB sires. Who stamps progeny?

My Hartley's Spirit, I haven't had long, but is so far proving to be a very quiet girl. Very smart, pretty, going to be HUGE. Quite good conformation, lovely mover. Sensitive, but willing, very smoochy, in your face. Really patient, will stand and chill out for ages either tied or on the lead. Ground manners aren't great but I don't think she's ever been taught them, just wants to be on top of her handler in scary situations. Can't be forced or she panics and explodes, and will go up if pushed too far.

Her dam is by Laranto, and the only progeny from said dam on record is my girl though I have been told there is an older full brother floating around.

ETA; forgot to mention, her feet are LOVELY. Beautiful shape, beautiful external structures - though I wish the walls were a bit thicker. Oh well, she IS a young TB, they might improve with maturity.

Bumping, I looked through the whole thread and didn't see anything pertaining to Serheed [though I distinctly remember there USED to be some comments in there... what happened?]...

...just found out the other day that my Anglo Arab's sire [obviously his TB half] is by Serheed and out of a Biscay mare. Thoughts?

Can anyone add to the Cape North progeny info?

Have a rising four year old gelding of his arriving on Tuesday. I haven't met him, but a, assured by the the stables that he is as quiet as.

I hope so!

Can add to the Carry a Smile info. Since I last posted about my TB mare I obtained another by him....who is almost identical facially, to her half sib but very different physically. Absolutely beautiful mares both of them.

Molly slipped twice this stud season, but I still plan to make a GRP x bub with her!

"Laranto was my favourite sire. Rode at Clairefontaine so have seen more than most people and they were all like him . GORGEOUS!!"

Hey we have Primrose Court Valentina show is sired by Laranto and out of Smilodon. Would you have any information on Smilodon.. Valentina was never ASB registered, though I have just had this happen.. It is looking like i have a mare with some sensational winning bloodlines and awesome temperament. She gave us a beautiful filly by Torrid Lodge Emir.

Valentina is an amazing riding horse. She had not been ridden for 9 years when we bought her.. After 9 years she still has beautiful movement as she would as a youngster. I have now studbook registered her as I wanted to breed her with a QH. Smilodon on some pedigree charts go right back to imported QH lines such as Easy Jet..

I would love any information on Valentina's sire and dam

I have a little mare by Bearcat. There's no dirty in her at all, she has the sweetest temperament!! Always comes to me in the paddock, and follows like an oversize dog!!! Definitely not pushy or rude! And currently barefoot with good, solid feet.
